FRAMES~ From the archives 1981: The Winds Of War filming, a very long game of Asteroids, Rolling Stones ticket hopefuls and more

Apologies if everyone is just bored with 1981- but this one box of negatives was chock full of some nifty images so I have a few more Thursdays worth of 1981 scenes to share and then I promise I will move along to another year.

This installment of “From The Archives” features a dashing Robert Mitchum getting his makeup touched up while filming the mini series Winds of War with director Dan Curtis aboard the USS Missouri.

We also get a glimpse into 56 hours of Asteroids play, the arrival of the USS New Jersey, and a peek inside the Playtime’s Grand (thankfully not too much of a peek and seriously the marquee totally cracked me up).

And hey if anyone who is reading this is picturedin that line of Rolling Stones ticket hopefuls, how was that Rocktober 14th. show anyway?

***Remember the only info I have on these frames is the date and the “title” that is written on the negative sleeve.

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #92: Sunrise or Sunset

Sunrises and sunsets are of course my co-photog Larry Steagall’s FAVORITE subject matter.

In fact not 20 minutes ago before I wrote this post he was going on and on about how this summer has been “the BEST summer for sunset photos”.

Well, I can’t argue with the sunset/silhouette master of the Kitsap Sun, nor do I want to so challenge #92 is to show me YOUR best photo depicting a sunrise or sunset.

Now while I usually prefer photographs taken in the time frame of the challenge posting, I will of course willingly accept images taken earlier this year- BUT IMAGES MUST HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN 2015. <—-see how bold that statement is, that means I mean it!

Deadline for entries will be Tuesday, September 1, 2015 and please keep your entries to 5 photos total. Entries will be scrutinized and “stand-outs” chosen and published in the Kitsap Sun.

Entries may be emailed directly to mreid@kitsapsun.com of your may use that handy Upload Photo Challenge Pix link on the right side of this page.

Here are a few shots from our archives (all shot this year) to get you thinking:

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #91: Macro/Close-Up STANDOUTS

Lovely work on the macro and close-up photo challenge everyone!

As usual I just love seeing the different subjects and shooting styles showcased with this theme.

Macro and close-up photography emphasizes texture, pattern and of course details of all kinds of subjects. From insects to humans, using macro or cloes-up photography techniques can really bring out the creativity in a photo shoot and make even the most mundane of subjects eye-catching.

Remember, there aren’t any winners or losers, I just pick a few photos and ramble on why they stand-out to me for various reasons. The following photos will be published in the Kitsap Sun on Sunday, August 9, 2015.

 

Ant Farm by James Ozburn I admit I took some creative liberties with James's photo and cropped it down to its current shape because I felt it was just a stronger image without the clutter of the background behind the leaf. Other than the need for a tighter crop, this image is just lovely and I loved the creativity of it by showcasing ant silhouettes and the details of the leaf veins.

Other than the need for a tighter crop, this image is just lovely and I loved the creativity of it by showcasing ant silhouettes from beneath the leaf veins.
Skilled Hands At Kitsap Music by Steve Johnson There were a few close-up/macro shots depicting people and Steve's was hands down the best. I love the depth of field and how even though the focus is on the musicians finger the viewer gets to see the whole scene in the frame without being distracted by it.

Feathers by Mistey Neff The details of this feather as so beautifully photographed that I can almost feel the soft fluffiness of it. I also like how it fills up the whole frame.

Bee Kind by Lea Bessler As it was to BEE expected, I received a lot of entires depicting bees doing their bee thing. This shot of Lea's is my favorite of the bunch because it is just so different than the other ones showing bees on flowers etc.. Frankly it caused a bit of a BUZZ in the office pondering what this BEEautiful little fella was up to. All bee puns aside, this is a really nice photo with great composition, lovely detail and I just love the color combination of the dark bee with the blue background and the golden crystals.

FRAMES~ From the archives 1981: a computer whiz, Captain America Jones, Hood Canal Bridge and more.

 

Alright even though I still have a bunch of 1975 images to share, I’m jumping ahead to a box of 1981 negatives.

In this batch we find a portrait of “computer whiz” Bruce Forstall (whom if you google is a Senior Software Design Engineer at Microsoft these days, if it is indeed the same person).

We also have a photo of Captain America Jones exiting a pool on fire after a daring stunt.

The Hood Canal Bridge was under construction so there are many many sleeves of negatives of the construction process.

And of course a whole lot of images of the day-to-day life of Kitsap County.

***Remember the only info I have on these frames is the date and the “title” that is written on the negative sleeve.

FRAMES: From the archives 1975: a doggy wedding, macrame, a weirdly shaped potato and some “real” news as well

 

Here are the latest scans from a box of 1975 negatives.

Sure at first glance it may seem that 1975 was full of “fluff” news.

I cannot deny that according to these images a pair of dogs did get hitched, a young girl grew an oddly shaped potato and a pair of ladies did work on some AMAZING macrame creations.

But there was also some type of explosion, lots of car accidents, a plane crash and what I can only guess is some sort of confrontation at the Port Orchard School board.

Remember the only info I have on these frames is the date and the “title” that is written on the negative sleeve.

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #91: Macro/Close-Up

I post this challenge every year because it always yields a bunch of really good frames, but also because Larry and I are big fans of cool macro photos.

So your photo challenge, if you choose to accept it of course, is to  get out there and show me your best photo that is up close and personal of something (usually something small but not limited to just small things), be it a bug, mouse whiskers, an M&M,  the veins of a leaf etc.

If you don’t have a macro lens or a macro setting on your camera (usually denoted as a flower icon) never fear, just get as close as you can. Heck, even iPhones take really good closeups of tiny things.

I ENCOURAGE you to shoot these challenges in the time frame that they are given, since the whole point of these challenges is to get people out there building on their photo skills, but I will of course begrudgingly accept photos that fit the theme that were taken earlier in the year.

Entries may be uploaded via the “Upload Kitsap Frames Photo Challenges here.” link over on the right hand side of this page or you may email them to me if you prefer : mreid@kitsapsun.com

DEADLINE is Monday, August 3rd.

Here are a few of the “Stand-Outs” from years past, as well as a few shots from our Kitsap Sun archives. Again, while there are a lot of pics of bugs, you are not limited to that subject matter, it’s just a very popular subject when one thinks of breaking out the macro lens:

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #90: City Life STAND-OUTS

Nice job on the City Life challenge!

Per usual I love the different subjects captured and shooting styles on display for this month’s challenge.

Remember, there aren’t any winners or losers, I just pick a few photos entered and ramble on about what makes them “stand-out” to me for various reasons. The following photos will be published int he July 12th. edition of the Kitsap Sun.

 

City Dog's Life by Shawna Whelan
City Dog’s Life by Shawna Whelan

Full disclosure, I cropped this photo of Shawna’s into the extreme horizontal format that you see here because I loved everything about this shot but I really thought there needed to be more of a focus on that adorable dog sprawled out on the sidewalk at the end of his leash. By cropping it down the eye goes right for the dog which is is so perfectly framed by the city construction in the foreground.

Gasworks 4th by Deena Alley

My goodness that is one colorful sea of people! It’s not just the vibrant colors of this shot, that make it great but also the layering of colorful boats in the foreground with the colorful people and the houses up in the third tier of the frame.

Space Needle at Night by Cynthia Leota
Space Needle at Night by Cynthia Leota

There were quite a few entries featuring the Space Needle and the Seattle Waterfront which is to be expected with this theme. What made Cynthia’s standout was that star burst of light from the fishing boat. It is a very unique shot that ties in the iconic Space Needle with the areas fishing industry.

Market Browsing by Sharon Moorman

The candid moment of this is lovely and I like the composition and the layering of the market elements. But by far the best part of this photo is how the woman’s face in the foreground mimics that of the one of the portraits up in the top corner. I just love those subtle details in a photo that most times the photographer doesn’t even notice till editing their shots later.

Infraction by Steve Johnson

Steve’s photo illustration depicting the woes of parking in the city is very well executed and I like how he thought a bit “outside of the box” when thinking about the theme of City Life.

FRAMES: From the archives 1965-66: an earthquake, lots of Navy and more.

Opened a box of negatives from 1965-1966 and apparently from the first handful of scans, the Navy was the biggest newsmaker of those two years, which makes total sense.

So here is a handful of featues and news and of course a lot of Navy related news from a dusty box of negatives.

***Remember the only info I have on the images is what is written on the Negative sleeve.

For a recap of this negative archive project, you can read about it HERE.

FRAMES: Photo Challenge #90: City Life

Your photo challenge this month, IF you choose to accept it of course, is to show me your best photo that falls under the theme of City Life.

Almost everyone lives in or near some form of city or town (huge urban metropolis, or a smaller town, which you photograph is up to you). From cityscapes, detailed shots of manhole covers, motion blur shots of people scurrying along the sidewalk or even portraits of those riding public transit…it can all be portrayed as part of city life.

As usual, the theme is open to interpretation and all “out of the box” thinking is encouraged.

So grab that camera and hit the streets – er hit the sidewalks because safety first people-and capture a moment that portrays City Life in your city/town of choice.

DEADLINE for entries will be Monday July 6th. and chosen “stand-outs” will be published in an upcoming edition of the Kitsap Sun. Entries can be emailed directly to meegan.reid@kitsapsun.com or uploaded using the handy “Upload Kitsap Frames Photo Challenges here.” link on the right side of this page.

***Please include the name of the town/city as part of your title or description etc.****

Here are a few frames from our archives that could fit the City Life theme:
