FRAMES ~ From The Archives 1978: Colonel Sanders, Bathtub Queen and her court, an expensive “short cut” and MORE!

Okay back to that over-stuffed box of negatives from 1978!

A few moments that are captured in this batch of scans:

  • A youngster meets THE Colonel Sanders.
  • The Bathtub Queen and her court pose for a cute portrait… in a bathtub of course.
  • A pretty expensive “short cut”.
  • OC Athletics tries to raise 10,000 dollars.
  • A deacon is ordained.
  • Cyclist braves the elements in a poncho.

FRAMES ~ From The Archives 1988: Kenny Loggins, Poulsbo Teen Center, a chicken crosses the road and MORE!

I know I said I only scan one  box of negatives at a time, hence all the 1978 posts recently but I was getting really bored of that box/year so I have moved on to 1988!

That’s right, big hair and leather jacket photos galore!

A few moments that are captured in this batch of scans:

  • Do you think Kenny Loggins referred to Bremerton as maybe the “Highway To The Danger Zone”? Or was he just passing through town and decided he “gotta cut loose, footloose”? Okay enough Kenny Loggins song wordplay, apparently he was in concert here…maybe at the Fairgrounds?
  • I love the two seemingly random photos only labeled Bremerton High of the two different groups of high schoolers in the cafeteria. One shot of rockers and another of what could be maybe the jocks? I don’t know the context of the images but I love the fashions of each group.
  • Poulsbo Teen Center
  • Yes even as far back as 1988, chickens crossed roads and got rounded up by animal control.
  • Norm Dicks shaking hands.
  • An adorable shot of two kids walking around with boxes on their heads.
  • Blue Oyster Cult

FRAMES ~ From The Archives 1978: Shirley’s Shirt Shack, fans lineup for Sonics, the biggest harmonica ever and more!

My goodness this 1978 box of negatives seems BOTTOMLESS!

And yes I realize I say that about every box I start to scan but truthfully I’m thinking that Larry is throwing some negatives in this box because I am still not even halfway through it and it seems to still be as full as when I started.

But enough of my rambling

A few moments that are captured in this batch of scans:

  • Shirley’s Shirt Shack! Best biz name ever but also man look at those t-shirts…wish this place was still around!
  • Sonics fans line the block and mug for the camera as they wait to buy tickets (well that is what I’m assuming anyway since the negative sleeve only says “Sonics Lineup”).
  • The feeding of a pet robin.
  • North Kitsap fans cheer on their team.
  • Norm Dicks
  • A harmonica that really shouldn’t be that big.
  • Downtown Port Orchard
  • Sidney Hotel

Remember, the only information I have on these images is what is written on the negatives sleeve.

FRAMES ~ Photo Challenge #100 : Weather

Here in the PNW the weather keeps life interesting.

Sure it might rain for 4 months straight but you just better watch out because Mother Nature might just throw a 70 degree sunny day in the middle of that 4 month rain stretch just to keep you on your toes.

Co-photojournalist Larry Steagall and I have a love/hate relationship with the ever present need for a “weather art” for the next day’s paper.

Our conversations with our editor  usually go something like this, “Sigh, okay yes there are umbrellas outside because it is of course raining but we’ve already ran 5 umbrella shots this week… ” Or, “Alright I’ll hit every park and beach in the county AGAIN today to illustrate this so-called warm-weather you speak of I mean it’s only 50 degrees out right now but yeah I’m sure someone will be sunbathing at 10 am…”

And yes while we drag our feet, grumble and occasionally roll our eyes , we do love them deep down inside because weather art is always good art, the hunt for that photo is always fulfilling and people love the weather- I mean it is the first thing my parent’s talk about when they call me from Michigan and I’m assuming that my parents aren’t the only weather junkies out there.

Oh and let’s not forget storms! Storms of course give us great visuals from flooding to trees down to the ever present rainbow after the storm.

Okay enough rambling, your challenge this month, if you choose to except it of course, is to show me your best weather shot.

Be it an umbrella toting person, a sunbather, a tree down with power crews working among the lines – if the image tells the story about the weather at that moment/day well that is a challenge entry right there.

And don’t forget to think about the details ( galoshes, sunscreen, sunglasses, puddles, umbrellas of course, inner tubes, beach blankets, flip flops etc etc. ) as well as the overall scene of the image. Does that make sense?

Sure this challenge is open to interpretation and all “out of the box” creative interpretations and execution of images is always encouraged.

You can email your entries to mreid@kitsapsun.com or use the handy Upload Photo Challenge Pix link at the right side of this page. Please make sure your real life name is somewhere in the upload fields or in your email to me.

Remember, I ENCOURAGE you to shoot the photo in the week that the challenge is assigned but of course will begrudgingly accept photos taken earlier this year.

Deadline for photos will be Monday, May 2nd.

Those chosen as “Stand-outs” will be published in the Kitsap Sun on the following Sunday.

FRAMES ~ Photo Challenge #99 : Reflections STAND-OUTS

 

Nice work on the Reflection challenge! As usual it was so nice to see so many different subjects and shooting styles showcased.

Finding and utilizing reflections to help tell a story is something photojournalist Larry Steagall and I use daily as we traverse the county capturing photographs for the paper.

If we are in a subject’s house, and there is a mirror on the wall or a very shiny appliance in the kitchen, you better believe we will try to use that in our photograph every time.

Of course many times the image just doesn’t work and doesn’t make our final edit but seeking out those reflections is just one of the many tools of the trade that we use as we attempt to capture dynamic “out of the box” images on a daily basis.

Remember there aren’t any winners or losers, I just pick a few images and ramble on about why they “stand-out” to me for various reasons.

The following images will be published in the Sunday, April 10th. edition of the Kitsap Sun:

0410_KSFE_Frames01

Reflect by Eli Pantenbburg

I absolutely love this creative photographer selfie by Eli. What could have just been a ho-hum shot of a reflection of the person taking the photo was stepped up to a very visually interesting image with the help of a few angled mirrors held be a  pair of co-subjects. The photo editor in me would suggest cropping tighter on the mirror subjects and getting rid of the garbage can and light pole though.

Ramp It Up! by Jeremy Lowe

I really like how Jeremy submitted this image upside down (he did so on purpose I promise) because truthfully there are a lot of times when a really crisp reflection image just begs to be rotated just to see if the the reflection could pass for the actual object or scene. I admit that at first glance I didn’t even realize it was upside down until I studied it closer and saw the slight ripples in the water. Rotation is a unique way of image presentation that works well for this shot.

The details and color of this macro droplet splash image are just amazing!

0410_KSFE_Frames04

Blossom Reflection by Travis Tyler

This beautiful shot has wonderful composition with the grass running right through the middle of the frame making the whole frame just perfectly symmetrical both vertically and horizontally. I also really like how the reflection half of the image has a slightly darker mood to it because of  the  hue of clouds reflected in the water as well as how the pink of  the blossoms are lost in the silhouette.

Wading Plover by Jack C. Harpel

The composition of this little wader is really nice with the rocks at the top of the frame and the rocks breaking up the reflection toward the bottom. I also think Jack is well aware that I am a giant “bird nerd” which is why he’s always finding a creative and beautiful way to photograph birds so that they fit into each month’s challenge theme…it’s as if he knows that I can’t resist “oooing” and “ahhhing” over those little feathered friends every month.

FRAMES ~ From The Archives 1978: The Roxy, USS Coral Sea, Odin Industries, West High and more!

Yep, still on that box of Bremerton Sun film negatives labeled 3/78-7/78…

Some have asked why I don’t scan different years every week…and my answer to that is because then my desk (and then by default my computer desktop) would be littered with random different negatives and nothing would stay organized.

Plus there is the extreme joy and accomplishment that I feel when I get a whole box of negatives scanned, the box sealed back up, placed back on the shelf and the knowledge that hopefully I never have to look in that box again.

So I’m sorry if 1978 is “boring” but I have to power through the box! 😉

A few moments that are captured in this batch of scans:

  • I love photos of the Roxy in it’s glory days. I think that photographs of theatre marquees are just perfect time capsules of the year that they were shot. I also googled Burt Reynold’s The End film and “It’ll Blow Your Mind” was the film’s tag line and not just a fun quip from the marquee arranger, and while reading the synopsis of the film, I have to think that is a slightly inappropriate tagline even if it was a comedy. But  more importantly I do hope that whomever revitalizes the Roxy puts the “Have A Fun Day” back up because that statement makes me smile every time i see it on old photos of the place!
  • The USS Coral Sea visits PSNS.
  • A lot if images from what looks like a horrific accident on McWilliams where a delivery truck of some sort ended up rolling down an embankment and crushing a car.
  • Aerial photos
  • Odin Industries which if I am correct is operated as Odin Inn at North Kitsap High School still to this day.
  • A South Kitsap graduate gets her diploma in the hospital.
  • Also a few random 1979 negatives are still turning up in this box so the two car Cruise photos at the end are actually 1979.

Remember, the only information I have on these images is what is written on the negatives sleeve.

FRAMES ~ From The Archives 1978: torpedo haul-out , a deputy is killed and suspects are captured, an octopus in a bucket and more

Continuing on through a box of Bremerton Sun film negatives labeled 3/78-7/78.

A few moments that are captured in this batch of scans:

  • The murder of Kitsap Sheriff’s Deputy Allred and the apprehension of the suspects.
  • A torpedo being hauled out of the water at Brownsville.
  • Miss Kitsap is crowned.
  • An octopus in a bucket (because where else would you put one?).
  • Apparently 20 cents could buy you a Butterfinger from a vending machine.
  • “Bank Fashion”… which I don’t think is actually a thing but maybe just a fashion shoot that was done in the bank vault for some reason.

Remember, the only information I have on these images is what is written on the negatives sleeve.

FRAMES ~ From The Archives 1978: Trident protests, a ferry fire, Rodeo Drive-In screen construction and more!

Alright since these old photo paper boxes that hold these negatives are a bit flimsy after all these years I have CAREFULLY popped open a box of labeled “News Negatives 3/78 to 7/78”.

But as with all these boxes of negatives, there seem to be a bunch of random other sleeves from different years thrown in there as well. So while this post is labeled 1978…yes there are a few 77’s scattered among the photos.

This round of scans includes:

  • Trident protests, which seems to be quite the newsy item in the late 70’s because this box is chock full of many sleeves labeled as such. This is just the first batch, I’ll scan the others for next week’s post.
  • A pair of elephants apparently either lived or just visited Port Orchard.
  • There was a fire aboard a ferry
  • There are many negatives labeled “Bremerton Renewal” all showing the same general area of downtown Bremerton. Might there have been an effort to revitalize Bremerton back then as well?

FRAMES ~ Photo Challenge #99 : Reflections

Slow news days with very few photo options have had me driving around the county a lot these past few weeks as I search for photos for the print edition.

And there are a few places I keep going back to trying to get the perfect shot, or AT LEAST an interesting shot and each one of those I keep going back to seems to be a reflection of some sort.

Now I’m not going to tell you where I have been lurking about because frankly I don’t want you to steal my photos 😉 BUT if one of you snaps the photo I’ve been stalking, well let’s just say it will be an automatic stand-out.

So your challenge, if you choose to accept it of course, is to show me your best shot utilizing a reflection.

Mirrors aren’t the only place you can find reflections, there are reflections in puddles, panes of glass, shiny table surfaces, sunglasses, your cereal spoon etc. Just look around you they are everywhere.

You can email your entries to mreid@kitsapsun.com or use the handy Upload Photo Challenge Pix link at the right side of this page. Please make sure your real life name is somewhere in the upload fields or in your email to me.

Remember, I ENCOURAGE you to shoot the photo in the week that the challenge is assigned but of course will begrudgingly accept photos taken earlier this year.

Deadline for photos will be Monday, April 4th. For real, I checked my calendar multiple times to make sure I got this challenge due date right, not like the last time, 

Those chosen as “Stand-outs” will be published in the Kitsap Sun on the following Sunday.

Here are a few photographs utilizing reflections from our archives to get you thinking:

***To recap: Every month I will post a new photography “challenge” to help build on all of our current photography skills and to encourage everyone to get out and get shooting (cameras not guns). While I encourage you to shoot the challenge in the week that it is assigned, I will however accept entries taken prior to the challenge assignment date.

When you’ve got your favorite shot, login to the Kitsap Sun Your Media Site (if you don’t already have a login, you can quickly set it one up) or click the “Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge Entries” button over there on the right side of the page and upload your image to the Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge Channel (the channels run along the left hand side of the page, again if you can’t seem to get it into the channel just upload it normally and send me an email and I’ll move it).

FRAMES ~ Photo Challenge #98 : Green STAND-OUTS

Again, so so many apologies for having the wrong photo due date for this challenge. I have no idea how I got that wrong on my calendar but it happened and if you had the most amazing entry that I never got to see before the page went to press please still send it along. I’ll do a blog and FB post of the “late but not really late since Meegan really screwed up” entries.

 

The following photos will be published in the March 14th. edition of the Kitsap Sun:

Can do, in a Green Kamanu by Jack C. Harpel I really like the symmetry of the subject and the center composition of this green kayak paddler. The exposure of the image is also fabulous with perfectly saturated colors and tack-sharp focus.

Stinkbug on a Seashell by Lacey Gibson The way the shape of the shell mimics this little green stinkbugÕs body shape is wonderful! Of course, the vibrant green details of the stinkbug really make this photo but it helps that the image also has strong composition with the use of the Òdead-spaceÓ above the bug and the shell

Deep In The Forest by Bryan M. Flynn I love the overall green of this landscape shot by Bryan. Now IÕm not just talking about the green of the moss and the ferns but also the green hue of light across the whole image that happens when the light is hitting so much greenness all at once. It is a lovely landscape shot that truly screams Evergreen State.

Green Eggs and Ham by Mathew Niblack This image cracked me upÉgreen eggs and ham, of course what a brilliant subject for a green theme! Other than the fabulous use of creativity making this a great image, I also like how un-stylized it is as a food shot. And what I mean is, one of course would not photograph a plate of green eggs and ham on fine china with a fancy table setting with multiple light sources because Sam-I-Am would not be serving them up that way. Green eggs and ham frankly stands alone in a photo on a standard plate with a standard napkin. Mathew captured this subject wonderfully.
