I’m no free spirit. That probably won’t surprise you. I’m known for remarkable consistency, in most things, and change comes in measured steps. One of my few acts of irrationality, is my penchant for collecting cameras, now numbering around 40. My annual visit to Eeyore’s is a view into an alternate world. One that I don’t entirely understand but respect, nevertheless.
Over the years, I’ve discovered that, in my own way, I’ve done more experimenting at Eeyores, than any other event. No, I’m not talking about controlled substances. Rather, I’ve explored different aspects of photography via equipment, technique and technology. Whether it was backlit images, super saturated images or using film. This year, I went with only a single camera and shot in black and white.
Though I used a zoom lens this time, I shot many at a 28mm equivalent, which got me in closer — I think there is a touch more intimacy. I’ve noticed that, over the years, I’m using wider focal lengths. Perhaps becoming less of an observer and more of a participant.
Here’s a good cross-section from Eeyore’s. Enjoy a slice from a quirky Austin tradition.
