Week 15-20 tlf: April 9-May 20, 2015

Sigh, still am not back on the appropriate Make More Photos Train, but I just bought 10 more rolls of film today, so it IS going to happen! Here’s some snaps from the past month – a walk along the river, some time with Mom and Dad, breakfast with a good friend, some friends’ going-away…

Pinhole and gear failure in Lester Washington

Lester, Washington is a few abandoned houses that are the ghost town remains of an old logging town.  There are 2 abandoned houses, and a partially collapsed barn.     It’s a bit in the middle of nowhere, but it doesn’t take as long as you’d think to get out there. I went with some friends and…

[M505] Week 15 – Railcars to Oil City

On the last weekend of April, Beth came with me on a railcar excursion on the Western NY & PA railroad out of Meadville, PA. Over the course of 2 days we traveled to Oil City and Corry, PA. To see the rest of the set, go to Notes from Mosquito Hill. Camera: Leica M3…

Week 14 – . . . and then it doesn’t

Back in Week 11, Beth and I took advantage of the early spring sunshine to take a box camera to one of our picturesque local cemeteries. I also took along my Nikon FG and some black and white film. You can see the rest of the set at Notes from Mosquito Hill.

Roll 22: Pinhole Meetup Redux at the Center for Wooden Boats

Film: Fujifilm Neopan Acros 100 B&W Camera: terraPin Bijou 6X4.5 3D printed pinhole F/135 Owing to the sins of sloth and procrastination, I found myself at the Center for Wooden Boats, the sole attendee to a meetup I had organized with late notice.  Hank said he’d like to go there and so I rebooted the CWB meetup…

Week 3 – 2014: Frosty panoramas

Continuing with the images from January. This time shot with a Minolta Riva Panorama on Agfa Precisa CT (rebranded Fuji Provia 100F). This is the first time that I’m scanning a roll from this camera myself and I was surprised just how soft the images were. But now with a healthy dose of sharpening I…

Week 20: Wild Hair, Nikon F90 and Ektar

I took a drive by myself the other day and came across the abandoned paper mill. Looks inviting, don’t it? Took some landscape shots as well and Im still tinkering with this new scanner cause the colors are all wonky and my negatives are dirty and well… Oh yeah, I just started my new blog.…

Roll 21: Rangefinding Around Seattle and Portland

Film: Kodak 100 T-Max Camera: Voigtlander Bessa R3A with Skopar 35/2.5 This camera makes me very happy.  I love shooting with it, I love its simplicity and I really like what I get from it.  The Skopar 35mm lens is very fun to shoot also – all in all, a solid combination for shooting 135. I carried the…

Week 19 – Nikonos!

Summer is coming!  We are fortunate enough to have both a pool and a water park close to home that we visit at least once a week (each).  Last year, I purchased a couple of “disposable” waterproof cameras from CVS and used those.  The results were not super fabulous, to put it mildly.  It’s very…

Week 2 – 2014: It’s been a while

Man I’ve slacked off! As some of you may remember I also started 52rolls. But in 2014! Now more than one year later I’m finally getting around to scanning, developing and posting the rolls I actually shot. I eventually gave up, but I thought I’d show the results from the rolls I shot. The images…
