In macro, Olympus OM-D by Robert LussierLeave a Comment

We had our first snowstorm of this winter season over the weekend. And while I would like to say I was tempted to go out and shoot some glorious winter landscapes, I had absolutely no desire to go outside. It was all I could do to gather the strength to go out to shovel. So …

Beer Seeds

In macro, Olympus OM-D, Uncategorized, Zuiko 12mm f/2.0 by Robert Lussier3 Comments

Last Friday morning I took a drive up to Maine to get some shots for Smuttynose Brewing. No beer bottles or construction images this time. I was there to get some shots of fresh hops.  Being a hop-head, it was a treat for me. But it was also a bit challenging. The morning started out …

I went back to the Lawrence History Center last weekend to photograph the wool dye recipe book again. This time it was for a specific purpose. Union Crossing, an urban development project in the city sampled some of the colors of the wool samples in the book to make paint for the walls of an …

I know, you were expecting an image of the Statue of Liberty. Sorry to disappoint you. It’s the title of this Irving Berlin record, from the musical production, Miss Liberty. This old Victrola lives at the Lawrence History Center. School children visiting the center to learn about the area’s history know it as “the first …

For this fine Friday, a companion piece to an image I posted a few weeks ago. This is the flip side of a pocket watch made by the Waltham Watch Factory in 1919. You can read about my connection to the watch and the factory in the original post. Shooting this family heirloom solidified my …

Thank You, Steve Jobs

I heard the news on my way home from work. When I got home, I went down to the basement and pulled out this old Macintosh 512k. I cleaned it up a bit and shot it as a tribute. Steve Jobs made the word “innovation” his own. He made us “Think Different” about the way …

Bell & Howell

In macro, Vintage by Robert Lussier7 Comments

Here is my dad’s Bell & Howell Electric Eye 8mm movie camera. It was manufactured in 1959. I’m guessing that’s the year he bought it. He used it on every family vacation, Christmas and family gathering at least through the 60s. Maybe into the 70s. My mother still has some undeveloped 8mm film lying around …

Waltham Watch

It’s funny how things come together. How connections from various parts of your life sometimes cross and make you say, “Wow!”  This watch is such an example. My mother and sister found it in my mom’s house last weekend. I should say, they rediscovered it. My late father found it originally, around 30 years ago …

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an image from this series, so here you go. The series is down to the last couple of images. At least the first part of this series. As I mentioned before, I may be shooting this book again as part of a larger project that involves new paint …
