52 Rolls Week 22:52

Today I introduce you to a rather unusual ‘festival’ that we stumbled upon a few years ago:  HearseCon (not for the faint hearted).  We will begin with the Cars, and next week take a closer look at some of the symbols. I will warn you ahead of time that next week may be disturbing for…

First results from the Moab Photo Symposium.  Next year will be the last as the organizer is retiring to travel the Southwest US, making images.  So If you can, drop in …….. Best of the first day of shooting with Bruce Barhbaum.  His philosophy of image making and his life story were both fascinating.  I…

2017, Roll 15: Home Is Where the Heart Is

Through the last four months of 2016, Emulsive.org ran the @FP4Party. Film shooters were encouraged to burn up a roll of the Ilford film during the first week of the month and post results on Twitter during the third. There was a competition for the best entries, voted on by the site’s followers.

Week 2 -Bak Þitt Er Sem Rennibraut

As I described in my first 52 Rolls post of 2017, I plan to slow things down a little this year. After last year’s excesses, I hope that by leaving time between the taking of the picture and choosing what to show, I’ll not be tempted into posting the pictures that might have been difficult or…

Today we start with a stroll just off the Mall and make our way back to Pearl Street.  Above, Lucille’s Restaurant, with a typical gathering of waiting customers.  Purports to be ‘authentic’, but having lived in New Orleans it would take a lot to impress me.  Besides, I’ve had the Beignets, and if you want…

Now for something that didn’t quite work.  I tried working in a modern church setting with my Personal Vision Theme.  But The Church was not as I had remembered and the stone work didn’t fit.  But I did get some interesting shots.  A very difficult space to photograph.  I hadn’t realized that there were really…

Twelve More Postings to go for this year’s project…….This week we visit with The Ancient Ones @ Aztec Ruins: Formerly the Anasazi, but we learned on this trip that Native Americans in the region (some of whom are undoubtably descendants of these people) prefer the term ‘Ancient Ones’. I make it a practice to call…

52 Rolls Week 31:52

This week Holga goes above the Tree Line to the Summit of Pikes Peak: We took a Journey on the Manitou & Pikes Peak Cog Railway for my mother-in-law’s 80th Birthday.  There was a lot to see on the way up, but not worthwhile to take photographs through the tinted window (although you will see a…

Week 21: Stick or Twist?

Roll 38 of the year is another of those shot, processed, scanned and uploaded on the same day. Another Sunday arrived at the end of a week that I’d not held a camera, meaning that I had the familiar pressure of needing to get out and shoot to maintain my weekly output. As it happens, on…

It’s time for the Holga Wide Pinhole Panorama Review……… This has been my ‘go to’ pinhole for the past several Pinhole Days, but I also have done a lot of pinhole experimenting.  But on to the results: I’ll highlight one of my favorite scenes at our nearby reservoir………..And mosaic the rest below. With one exception…..an interesting…
