I Quit

It’s already near the end of the year. Life got the better of me this time. While I shot at least 35 rolls of medium format and have developed and scanned them, I just don’t have it in me to write the rest of the posts. I am certainly not going to shoot another 17…

Rolls 24 and 26 More of My Town

I started the “My Town” project as a way to keep myself interested for the year, but it has turned into a thing for me. I have already documented numerous homes that are no longer there, at first by accident and then, more recently, I’ve been searching for likely candidates. Anyway to speed up the…

Roll 23 Dog Days

This camera has been one of my medium format favorites. However mine was at the doctor for such a long time I almost forgot about it even after I got it back. This roll dates from mid summer when I decided the only way to shoot this camera was to just take it out and…

Roll 19 More from Japan

I am puzzled by the chronology of this roll and how it fits with the other two, since it contains photos from two bookends in the trip. It’s so hard to keep track of this stuff…..This roll didn’t yield much, for whatever reason. It was Portra 100 shot on the Diana F+. Anyway the first…

Roll 18 Ueno Park

This roll was Reala 100 (which I wish I had more of) shot on the Diana, which I am so glad came along on the trip. After visiting Hokkaido I returned to Tokyo where I met up with my son, who is currently living in Nagoya, and his friend who had come to visit at…

Roll 17 Sapporo

Finally I’ve arrived at a few rolls that I shot during my trip to Japan at the end of April/early May. I took three cameras, intending to make the Nikon FE (for which I have a lot of lovely lenses) my primary camera, with the Rollei 35s as a pocket companion and the Diana as…

Roll 16 More cross processing

You may have noticed that there have been quite a few rolls of cross processed slide film in this series. This is because I have (or did have) at lot of this film in my stash, and circumstances have made it impractical to send film out for processing. So I’ve been processing all my own…

Roll 14 (meh) and Roll 15 The Pentax Returns

Roll 14 didn’t yield many shots worth sharing. The film was Fujichrome expired in 2000 , shot on the Isolette and cross processed. The results were mostly terrible and the curling of the Fuji film during processing is starting to drive me nuts. This shot represents what I am starting to call informally my “demo…

Roll 13 Discovering Favorite Films

I’m trying diligently to get a bit caught up. I have lots of rolls backlogged but circumstances have conspired to rob me of any time to post here. I’m going to forge ahead while I have a few days. This set were shot on the Isolette, which is the fanciest camera I’ve been using. I’ve…

Roll 12 Boat Houses and More

This roll was shot on the Diana, which is becoming a favorite despite its primitive nature. I spent a fortune to have my precious Pentax 67 returned to life but just haven’t taken it out. Mostly the opportunities I’ve had to shoot are on quick walks, or dashing out of my double parked car to…
