Roll 31: Urban Monochrome

It took me a while to post this one.   I have gotten behind again so I’m adding all of the images to a gallery to streamline it a bit.

These were all taken with my trusty EXA on Kodak TMAX 100, 35mm, and I was part of a photowalk group in downtown Reno, NV.  It’s funny how much I have been there to take photos this year when I haven’t been anywhere near that part of town in recent years.   Normally, “downtown” is reserved for tourists or transients.  Nope, not so much anymore.   There’s a whole rebirth of Reno happening!

The photo group was fun and helped me to see a few things with a new eye.   I took the bulk of my shots with a DSLR but did lug the film camera with me for the fun of it.   Well, sorta.   It was a 103 degrees outside that day.   I wouldn’t say that lugging anything extra was necessarily a great idea.

I think the images came out pretty good, though, despite the temperature.

  1. Your use of black & white had such a retro feel for me as I scrolled through the photo gallery. At times it almost seemed some of these shots could have been taken fifty years ago rather than today. Very cool!


    • That’s one of my favorites. You know when you take a shot and it’s gonna be good? I shot that one on purpose. I started to call it “I Shot a Man in Reno.” He looks like he might be a Johnny Cash fan.


    • I had the b/w film processed by The Darkroom ( and they processed them. No other adjustments. I just noticed I posted that it was shot on Ektar. Ooops. Autopilot error. Not true. I just updated the post.
