Lost & Found

I hadn’t seen the RAW files of these in sometime, it appears that in a previous move a CF went “missing” and didn’t end up with all the others. Files for whatever reason never were archived. Found the card when I unpacked last week. I processed a few of my favourites.


Alexandra Bridge connecting Ottawa-Gatineau. I liked to effect, so I waited for a red car. Pentax ☆istD, SMC Pentax-DA 14mm f:2.8, 1/100 sec f:16


Fall Sumac. I reworked an older image of mine, back when I made the transition to digital. Frond was getting a spear of backlight through a small gap in the forest canopy, natures spotlight at work.

Pentax ☆istD, SMC Pentax-M 50mm f:4 manual focus Macro Lens, 1/125 sec f:11.


Ring-billed gull (Larus delawarensis), Ottawa River shore. Odd as this one appears to have a very pale, almost white eye, rather than the normal yellow eye. Not sure if this a trick created by the light.

From the live Butterfly show.


Butterfly tongue, Pentax ☆istD, old legacy manual focus SMC Pentax-M 50mm f:4 macro lens.


Emerald Swallowtail, Pentax ☆istD, old legacy manual focus SMC Pentax-M 50mm f:4 macro lens.

About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
