My Flickr Stream

Unless you follow me on Flickr, you probably aren't seeing everything I put up online.  Even though I use a Holga, use primarily black and white film and shoot mostly fly fishing subjects, I do occasionally use color film and shoot something other than fly fishing.
So with that, I thought I'd put up some of my favorite color photographs that I have done fairly recently.
This first one, goes back to July.  Back in 2006 or so I started photographing those "inflatable characters" that  you typically see at used car lots and what not, it was a short lived project, that stopped mostly I stopped seeing them in my area. But on such occasions as the Fourth of July for instance you will see them at firework stands.  I'd really like to shoot more of these, but I just don't see them around like I used to anymore. I think they are hilarious, and I think photographing them with a toy camera add to that hilarity.  Don't you?  To see more of these photographs, check out the "Inflatable Characters" set on Flickr.

Another theme of sorts that you will see in my Flickr stream and may have seen a little through here revolves around, Veterans, military and patriotism, which I come by naturally being a Veteran.
These two photographs come from a local Veterans Day parade from this past Veterans Day.

I know the United States and all that it does and what not, isn't the perfect country, but it is where I live, so I will always stand beside her, so you will see The Flag in a lot of photographs on Flickr too.

If you like what you see here, fishing or not, take a look at the rest of my Flickr stream and look me up, I go by Red Holga Man..
