8MM Stills
1. 8MM Stills  (1950s to 1970s)
Video stills from 8mm movies that my dad, mom and even us kids took.

The default file size is 1024x768 but you can choose 800x600 or Original when perusing.

Here are links to the edited films:

REEL 5:  https://youtu.be/Oc9LDi7D-JM
REEL 4:  https://youtu.be/W8xr3329o_g
REEL 3:  https://youtu.be/1_h0O8QfNiA
REEL 2:  https://youtu.be/aWQLaLUZ3h8
REEL 1:  https://youtu.be/E1r9l89BGMQ

Beginning approximately 1958 and going through the late 1970's.  The videos were digitized frame by frame to 1080 (with letterbox on the sides) and these stills have been cropped and adjusted.  Some of these are hard to believe they came from 8mm.  The frame size is so small it's difficult to image that there is any detail at all.

The conversions were done by Legacy Digital Productions: http://legacydigital.net.  I highly recommend them.

I am currently editing for each of the seven 8mm film reels that were digitized in Adobe Premiere.  This includes removing some unwatchable sections or even individual frames, adding image adjustments, speed and stabilization adjustments, transitions and miscellaneous information about the scenes.  Here are the links for the completed reels.  (Only reel 1 is complete right now and I'll add links as they are completed.)

Colonel Barkley B Yarborough
2. Colonel Barkley B Yarborough 

.

Very sad news... My dad, Barkley B. Yarborough, "Colonel BB" to many, a Colonel in the United States Marine Corps passed away recently.

These are select images from his Marine Corps days which began in 1943.

Dad began life in Texas on May 18, 1925 and left us after a hell of a run on July 14, 2015.  We all miss him and he was admired and respected by all who meet him.

I've put in captions as best I could. If you notice something is obviously incorrect, please leave a comment... You can leave comments on any photo once you click on it and are encouraged to do so.

MISS YOU DAD!

Sleestak PhotoShop Humor
4. Sleestak PhotoShop Humor 
Sleestaks are the slow hissing "monsters" from the Sid and Marty Croft kids television series from the 1970's, The Land of the Lost.  The show was campy and low budget...  The Sleestak is a misunderstood minority which encounters all the same problems as any minority as these Photoshopped images show.

This gallery also includes Gorn Photoshops.  The Gorn is a lizard-like alien from the original Star Trek "Arena" episode which luckily was blown up by Captain Kirk after had made his bamboo cannon.  The original McGuyver I guess...

American Safari 1999
10. American Safari 1999  (Summer 1999)
During the summer of 1999, an English writer, Joe Patch, and I, an American photographer, drove over 15,000 miles along with Louis Baker, Joe’s’ son and an Australian boxer.  Together in a Jeep Wrangler, we traveled the country in search of people and places that would make our trip into what we had hoped, a safari into American culture.  During these three months on the road, we met people from all walks of life and a vast number of cultures. We hope these images and words will express what we found, our diversity as a nation and the kindness and sense of community that was predominate.  Our positive experience offers up the opposite to the negative picture of American society painted by our countries’ news media.

All images were captured using Kodak and Fuji color reversal film.

Our sincere thanks to all who helped us along the way.  Your kindness and hospitality was most appreciated.

The Laphroaig Photo Project
13. The Laphroaig Photo Project  (ONGOING PROJECT)
These are photos of one unopened bottle of Laphroaig 10 Year Old Single Islay Malt Scotch Whisky. The project will be on going and attempt to capture photographs of this particular bottle at historic events, famous places as well as tagging along with me during my daily routine. In addition, I will work to get this bottle photographed with well known, and not so well known, people such as celebrities, politicians, actors, police, firefighters, blue and white collar workers and photo manipulations...

The Project began March 18, 2006 and shall continue for quite some time. There are numerous influences that gave rise to this idea, but one project stands above the rest; "The Red Couch - A Portrait of America". In addition, a Bottle of Laphroaig is much easier to haul around than a couch and if for some reason I get tired of doing this, I can just stop where I am and open the bottle... End of project.

The Laphroaig Photo Project will continually evolve and re-define itself as photographs are taken and people and places influence the direction of the project.


DISCLAIMER: This project is not affiliated in any way whatsoever with the Laphroaig distillery. The individuals and businesses and in these and future images do not in any way infer an endorsement of any product. In addition, these images are not meant to imply any advocacy for or against the consumption of alcohol.

Please Drink Responsibly and if you're planning on not drinking responsibly, don't drive. It's a no brainer...

THIS IMAGE EVENT GALLERY IS A TEMPORARY HOME FOR THE LAPHROAIG PHOTO PROJECT. A DEDICATED DOMAIN IS CURRENTLY IN THE WORKS. THE URL WILL BE POSTED HERE WHEN UP AND RUNNING.

A GREAT show by a consummate musician. I have 33 images at 12"x72ppi resolution. If you would like a higher resolution for a print, email me the photo number and I will hook you up with a file suitable for large prints.

These were all shot at the 1600 ISO setting of the Canon 20D with either the 24-70mm/2.8L or the 135mm/2.0L without flash.

Many thanks to Watt, Raul and Pete for the friendly welcome they gave my buddy Dave and me...
