Windang wheels

Windang Island sits just beyond the mouth of Lake Illawarra. At low tide it is possible to walk out to the island over a narrow sand bar or isthmus which becomes submerged at high tide in a big swell and storms. In a Dreaming story, Windang Island is an abandoned canoe used by the Thurawal…

On mountains and falls

“Flowers laugh without uttering a sound. Roosters cry without shedding a tear. Examining the ages reveals that good deeds are as rare as flowers among rocky peaks while evil acts are as plentiful as the grass on fertile hills” – Kyokai “High peaks and lofty crags are where the wise dwell. Green pines and deep…

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…

Week 49 — Pushing HP5 in the Fog ….

We have had quite a few foggy days here in Wales so I decided to shoot a roll of HP5 at 1600 with the hope of accentuating the fog with the extra grain and contrast of pushing the film. I was quite pleased with the results, I really do like the look of HP5 when…

A Roll of Mistakes

The story of this roll of film is a litany of mistakes. I thought I should try some black and white in the EOS3 only having shot colour with it. I had an unexpired roll of Ilford Delta 400 in the fridge so that was my choice (everything else is expired which introduces an additional…

[raulpc] week 38 – 3:1 panoramic

52 Rolls Week 43:52

I’ve been taking a course  “Exploring Your Personal Artistic Vision”.  In the end we are supposed to produce a book of images that express something important to us.  I’ve been exploring Spirituality focussed on my recent experiences with the Ancient Ones.  So this week I’ll share the image that started it all:   Links to…

[raulpc] week 37 – more pinhole 6×17

Another experiment with light and mood, trying to figure out exposure for an inside picture, with the me as a ghost showing up as intended but not quiet as I wanted. The only one with something to see on this roll. With and old TriX developed in PMK.    

[raulpc] week 36 – Abrantes

Abrantes, Portugal, once again, where I like to go on weekends, to visit my mother, and enjoy the quiet life of a small country town, and life follows a slower pace that I like to melt in around. With my 6006 measuring the light, f/16 focused at 10 meters, so everything from 3 meters to…
