 ARM WRESTLING. Hada a chance to shoot the CNY Arm Wrestling Championships at Steve's Restoration and Hotrods in Herkimer NY.  Met some great people including Jim Dougan, Organizer of the event who allowed me to get close to the action.  Arm Wrestling actually goes back to the Egyptions in 2000 BC, was popular among Native Americans and the finally became a sport here in 1952 at Gilardi's Saloon in Petaluma California.

Jim received an important award, the National Anthem was sung and then the games began.

Here are some images of this intense competition.  Like two gladiators in the ring trying to win but without the intent of harming your opponent.  Dramatic, but full of friendship and concern not to injure your opponent.

Street Portraits



 I love meeting and photographing people on the street.  For me, it is easy.  I smile, chat a bit and find that most people are happy to have their photo taken.  It is important to use a small camera that does not intimidate.  For this, I use a 12 year old Fuji X-Pro 1 with an 18mm f2.0 lens.

OLD CAR CITY

 ,
These images are a few from my recent venture to Old Car City in White Georgia.  The owner, Dean Lewis declares this junkyard as a work of evolving art as the forces of nature interact with 4200 pre-1972 autos placed on 34 acres of woods and field.  Certainly there is a lot of US automotive history here represented by post WW ll and Korean war economic growth.  You can see that car designers were obsessed with airplane and rocket design, trying to create vehicles that presented power and speed. Paint, oxidation, rust make for interesting artistic companions.  Tech: Nikon D500 with Tokina 11-16mm for the wide angle shots and a Tokina 100mm Macro for the closer images.  Enjoy, Jeff
