Ogden Point Breakwater


I am slowly getting back in sync here. Quite a while ago now I posted a Polaroid out of sequence to mark world pinhole day. One of the shots on today’s roll 20 was taken at the same time of the same subject, and was the beginning of this roll of film. This roll also overlapped with the one posted last week from a different camera, and continued beyond that time. I have been experimenting with my Canon SLR (Elan 7N/33V) and various lenses, some that I own and some that I have borrowed. Today’s shots are taken with an EF 16-35mm f2.8 L and an EF 50/1.4 using Fuji Superia 200. More will appear in future posts from other lenses.

Most of today’s photographs were taken during a visit from Texas photographer Melinda Green Harvey that I mentioned in my last post.  We are just wrapping up our co-posts from that experience that have been running on both our blogs. Today’s images have not showed up in that joint posting project, but it would have been nice if there was room for a couple of these. I very much like how they came out, and that is partly due to having Melinda around because she influenced me to pay a bit more attention to my exposures than before. She shoots completely in manual, I tend to use aperture priority often rather casually with too much trust in the camera’s choice. That has come to an end, I will be doing more to adjust exposures as appropriate and when using a camera that allows me to.

The film is Fuji Superia 200, commercially processed, scanned with Epson V700 and Epson Scan software, edited in Lightroom.

    • Thank you Peter. I was out on the breakwater with another house guest last week and I expect that a few photos will show up again. Its a great spot to go with visitors. Recently those railings were added with very much changed, and to an extent ruined, the aesthetic of the spot. The lack of railings before kept away the more timid people, and those with young children, in wheel chairs and so on. It is much more heavily used now, but no longer provides a hard edge or false horizon for photographs. I miss that, but am coming to appreciate what it has to offer, and it is much better place for a lot of people to use.
