Roll 38 – bushcraft on the secret island.

For roll 38 I took my Olympus XA out hiking with me, just for fun. I have said this before, but I love that little camera so much. It has become my favorite camera, hands down (aside from my Zero 4×5). It fits so easily in my pocket and doesn’t weigh me down when I…

Roll 37 -Camping at a haunted lake

For roll 37 I took my pinhole camera camping with me. We went to Little Crater Lake, which is a small (and deep) lake on Mt Hood. It was on a Sunday night and we had the entire campground to ourselves, which was kind of creepy. There are stories about the lake being haunted. According…

Roll 36 – An Adventure on the Mountain

For roll 36 I found myself and my pinhole camera on Mt Hood at a lake I’d never visited before. I have to admit, I don’t remember the name of the lake! But it was beautiful. It was quiet and serene. We thought about camping there the following weekend but decided on somewhere else. These…

Week #37 Ireland part 3

We ended our trip through Ireland with a short stay with our friends in Dublin. They showed us a little bit of the city (Temple Bar, the Botanic Gardens and Glasnevin Cemetery and Howth). We also went to Trim and Bective Abbey, which were absolutely lovely locations. Ireland was so much fun and so beautiful…

Week #36 Ireland part 2

Week 36 saw us still touring through Ireland. We had made our way to the southcoast, and visited Charles Fort, several beach towns and the Ring of Kerry. Something odd happened at Charles Fort: first the back of my pinhole camera fell off mid-roll, and then my Olympus OM-2 suddenly stopped working. Since then my…

Roll 18 – The Traveling Yashica

I’d been waiting patiently, almost forgetting about it entirely, but the Traveling Yashica finally arrived to me, safe and sound, last week. David Lee, in Korea, who I’ve recently followed on Twitter, was the previous user. Trying my best to get a roll through it and back in the mail as soon as possible, I…

Roll 35 – A pinhole adventure with friends

In August I began hanging out with two very talented Pinhole Photographers, Gretchen and Donna. We have since started having pinhole adventures once a month and it’s been a blast! For our first pinhole adventure we decided to visit Trillium Lake. I brought my Zero Image 4×5 and shot both large format film and 120…

Roll 34 – Mountain Festival, Pinholed

OK, this is where I start feeling like I have failed at this project. Because now I am posting anachronistically. I am going back in time to the Mountain Festival, which I have already covered with the Traveling Yashica. What is time, anyway. Time is just an illusion. I generally bring two cameras out with me,…

Roll 33 – The Witches Castle in Portland, Oregon

For Roll 33 I wanted to go on a pinhole adventure so I went to the Witches Castle in Portland, Oregon. I posted this originally on Pinhole Obscura. The Witches Castle is located in Forest Park (Portland, OR). There are a host of rumors about this place. I was curious about how the place came…

Roll 32 – The Traveling Yashica

One morning at the end of September of last year my friend Inge told me about the Traveling Yashica project. She was going to join the project and thought I might be interested too. I did a quick Google search for the camera and took a look at what would be traveling around. I thought…
