2017, Roll 38 – Lemon

A couple of weeks ago, an old friend called in to drop off a box of old Russian rangefinders that had been languishing in his loft. As I already own a rangefinder or two, I decided to offer these cameras to the @EMULSIVEfilm community in exchange for ‘some film’. I put no limit on what…

Roll 11-14/52 Japan part 6

Rush! Stop! Rush! Stop! This has been almost the last month to date and it almost feels like the eye of the storm is the calm before the inevitable, in saying that, next week is moving house time. Until then is a small period of pause, and where the time is found to continue to…

Week 23 & 24: Holiday in Greece

During week #23 and #24 we visited my in-laws in Athens, Greece for the christening of my nephew. I went all out and shot three rolls of 35mm in two weeks. At least for me that’s quite a lot. 😉 I also tried to get used to the 35mm focal length. As it turned out…

Week 21 & 22: Holiday in Austria

In week 21 & 22 we went on a holiday in Austria. It was my uncle’s 70th birthday, the yearly family reunion and both daycares were closed. We went to a tiny vineyard close to Graz, Austria and we had the most relaxing holiday. Minolta Dynax 9xi, 50mm f/1.7, Agfa Vista 400, developed and scanned…

Rolls 23,24,25 – Shiny cars.

My home town of Pontypridd holds an annual vintage transport day in the town park. This year was a novelty as the sun made an appearance. After a parade through the high street, the cars trucks and bikes make their way into the park and squeeze into rows of polished paint and chrome. In an…

Week 12: Easter holidays

My last post was about week 9. Week 10 and 11 were probably black and white films so they’re not yet developed. But who cares, let’s just jump ahead to week 12. 🙂 Most images are again private as they involve my kids, but I tried to at least shoot a few that I could…

Week 4: Under construction [Disco Foxtrot]

No new Rolleiflex photos this week while I tear apart my darkroom and replace the old enlarger with an Omega Super Chromega II D. But here’s a photo of lower Manhattan taken from the Jersey City side using a Contax T2 and Agfa Vista Plus 200. The Contax T2 is a delight to use, and combined with…

Week 3 – Reset

My plan for the 52 rolls project, like many of you,  is to try to shoot a roll every week, within the week and post it a day or two later. I have 18 different film cameras, a couple of pinholes and a coffee can solargram to use and plan to use each one for one…
