Camera - Minolta Maxxum 9000
Film - Kodak TMax ISO 3200
Shutter Speed - 1/1000
Aperture Setting - f-22 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 24mm lens
Scanning Method - Epson Perfection 4990 Photo scanner

It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at and I will be happy to provide you with one.

I went out this morning to an area of our peninsula called Potato Neck. It was beautiful! The water was so still where I was at that the reflection of the morning sky looked as deep in the water as the sky was high. Many men were taking their boats out fishing and I got two handsome gentlemen to smile and wave for the camera. Hope those shots turn out. I was gone just over four hours and came home feeling creatively satisfied.

This is the first time I’ve scanned a b&w photo with the new scanner, and I’m very pleased with the results. This is the view of the Coleman Bridge from the Gloucester Point side of the bridge (north) looking south towards Yorktown. These railings, the signs detailing historic events that took place here as well as signs documenting local wildlife were all put in after Hurricane Isabel.

I really like your first black and white picture from your new scanner. It has a fine range of tones from deep black to detailed white with plenty of detail. Nice work, Micki.

It's funny. I hate going over bridges -- don't know why -- just always have. But love taking photos and seeing photos of them. Very nice shot!

I was hoping to get out and shoot some bridges today in fact...I made it to the end of the street when I discovered a nail in a very flat tire...grrrrr....that's tire #3 in less than 12 months!!!

I digress...Lovely shot. That bridge is really a beauty. I love the extra grain in this shot.

I like the uncompromising construction of this bridge : no-one tried to make it look pretty! Love to see that swing span open and something passing thru, Micki.

This bridge is verry impressive. I like the way you captured it and the subtl game on grey.

Perfectly composed to give a great sense of the massie scale of this structure - and that tasty grain :-)

Seeing this bridge made me recall my days in Yorktown.Is Nick's Seafood Resteraunt still there? What an experience it was eating there.

I really like the perspective, here, Micki. The bridge just grabs my eye and takes it into the distance. BTW, have to tried to scan any B&W negatives? They come out really well! Give it a shot, if you have the negative holder!

There really is a nice range of tones in this shot! I love the detail in the underside of the bridge!

Love the leading lines, and the railing breaks the line in one corner in a pleasing way.
