    My entries:

    B&W:
    http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/alcatraz/a24.jpg'>
    [b]Camera[/b] - Minolta X-9 with standard 50mm lens.
    [b]Media [/b]- Kodak TMY 400iso B&W
    [b]Composed [/b]- I was chilling at the piers in San Fran waiting for the ferry to Alcatraz and this bird swooped down to drink.
    So I was sly and carefully took the photo without disturbing the bird.
    I forget the shutter speed and f-stop. Sorry.
    [b]Why?[/b] - It really looks like an old time photo. Everytime I look at it, I think of Coney Island. I also love the light bulbs
    in the background and the faded sign.
    This photo also reminds me of how cool SF was.




    Color:
    [img]http://www.angryalan.com/photohost/misc/12.jpg'>
    [b]Camera[/b] - Minolta X-9 50mm lens and a Skylight 1A filter
    [b]Media [/b]- Kodak 200iso (?)
    [b]Composed [/b]- Was benching when I came across this. Just put on the filter and snapped the shot. Forgot the shutter and f-stop.
    [b]Why?[/b] - It's fucking beautiful. The character, the colors, even how messy it looks. I love it.

    Camera:
    Pentax MZ-30 with 30-70mm lens
    Media:
    TMAX 400 I think. maybe 100
    Composed:
    The space was really confined, we just hid as the engine passed,then we came out and the level of noise, and speed the train was going totally overwhelmed me. I had to get a shot of how big and fast it was going, and how it kind of dwarfed us.
    Why?:
    Brings back the moment very vividly. Aside from that I couldnt tell you.

    [img]http://members.shaw.ca/cjmmoc/newslides/aaronramp.jpg'>
    Camera:
    Nikon FE2 with 50mm lens
    Media:
    Fuji Provia 400
    Composed:
    We were wandering around downtown and checking out the construction around the base of the new shaw tower. I stopped to take a photo of somthing at the bottom and EarMuffs kept walking up the ramp. I turned around and it was just one of those shots that appears instantly in your head and you have to take it.
    Why?:
    It looks like theres some kind of story behind it....

    Well, at least at this moment, these are my choices:

    http://img50.photobucket.com/albums/v152/MrChupacabra/aeecfc87.jpg'>
    Camera - Olympus OM1 with a 28mm to 105mm lens. i think it was a 15th of a second exposure on F2.8 or F1.8, i'm not sure.
    Media - TMAX 400
    Composed - I was on a vacation to Philly and NYC with my parents and me and my dad were just wandering around New York at night and taking some photos when i saw this building. I couldn't get the shot i initially wanted since there was a shit load of traffic that was in the way so i ended up having to cross the road which in turn gave me a shot that i liked a lot better. Sometimes you just get lucky
    Why? - I love photos of buildings and i love contrast, the latter of which i added more of later when i developed. But it was just a good combo of people, archecture, and lights that combined for a picture i really like.

    [img]http://img50.photobucket.com/albums/v152/MrChupacabra/f83e58b6.jpg'>
    Camera - Olympus OM1 with a 28mm to 105mm lens. 8th of a second exposure, probably F2.8 or F4, possibly F1.8, i'm not sure once again.
    Media - I think it was just the generic kodak color film 400 speed.
    Composed - Same night as the other one, needless to say that night was a successfull one in terms of photography. There were all these lights on some building in NY, big concert place the name escapes me right now, and i knew i wanted a photo of them but i couldn't figure out the angle i needed. I ended up laying/sitting down in the middle of a sidewalk while lots of people were walking around me and just hoping my shaky hands pulled through for me on the 8th of a second exposure. It did.
    Why? - I always have loved the orange tint that you get with long exposures at night with color film and this picture is just those nice shades of orange and black. It pops out at me but it is still a really straight forward picture, really simple.
