52 Rolls Week 31:52

We’ve been out trying to capture the ‘Great American Eclipse’.  But to keep you all occupied, we visit the Iconic Daniels & Fisher Tower, Downtown Denver. In keeping with the new policy, only two images.  See the rest posted HERE: The interior of the Clock Face is an Event Center. Please do read the history…

52:500c – Week 49 – Upon Avon

You’d think that with a title like “Upon Avon” I would be doing some portraits for Shakespearian actors. And you would be wrong. However, the town that I was is known rather well for their theater performances of Bard’s work. That town is, of course, Stratford. Stratford and I go way back, as in some…

Lucky Thirteen

  I am not a superstitious person, so the thirteenth roll is not giving me the tiniest frisson of fear. Indeed, I got married on the thirteenth 30 years ago; that worked out pretty well. This roll has a variety of stuff on it. I have pulled out just the storm drain photos which is my…

Redcedar Clad

  I found a bit of an architectural theme on my twelfth roll of film which I started shooting a couple of months ago, and then finished off late last week. There were some nice surprises, barely remembered, from the first part of the roll. These three images are all taken in the Atrium, and relatively new building…

roll 39_ a new 50mm lens

Lucky me, I picked up a 50mm lens for my Hasselblad 500 CM, at Blue Moon Camera in Portland, Oregon. My husband got some overtime pay and I thought he was going to buy himself a new lens but instead he bought me the 50mm. I’ve wanted one for sometime, especially once I started my…

Week 27: UConn

I met up with a friend from college during a past weekend for a photo stroll.  We both went to the University of Connecticut, which locally is shortened to UConn.  The only other state that does this is Massachusetts, UMass.  When I went to school here in the late 80s-early 90s, the entire school had the feel…

Week #10 : Walcheren

So during week 10, I took a couple days off and one of those days we went to the seaside.  Walcheren used to be an island in Zeeland, the Netherlands.  Now it’s easily accessible by car though.  We visited the “old” city of Middelburg.  I’m using quotes here because I was told that the main…

Weeks 10, 11 and 12 – using lenses for once

Back to using cameras with actual glass stuck on the front for a change. Recently acquired two MF cameras that needed putting through their paces. The mighty Pentacon SIX and a Mamiya M645 1000s. Both of which I find I like. The Mamiya’s main issue is that is not 6×6 😉   We are experiencing…

Week 12, pinholes

No cool workshops to take, and while there were more St Paddy’s Day parades, I decided one was enough.  So I broke out the pinholes to try my hand at them again on a bright and sunny day. And because it was bright and sunny and I didn’t want Pinhole Assist to say “Expose for…
