Birthday with Cinestill 800

This is the first time I have used Cinestill 800. The film has been in my camera since May and I just finished the roll a few days ago. Most of these pictures are from May when I went to my mothers birthday party with some other family members. I am not sure what to…

Parental Workout

    Children, and grandchildren, can be quite the workout for a parent, or grandparent. In this instance I headed out with my granddaughter and her dad for a bit of play in her favourite park. She now lives out of town and really enjoys nostalgic visits to the places she remembers from before the…

Band Photos at the Observatory

  More photographs from the Sam Weber band series – these were shot at the Gonzales Observatory. The first image is my favourite of the series.  For more information about the photography, band and their new album check out the first in this series here.

Band Photos Around the House

  More photographs from the Sam Weber band publicity shots that I did in late February. For more information about the photography, band and their new album check out my previous post here. These were shot around the house, one of several settings we tried out.

Band Photos

These photographs are selected from some band publicity shots that I did in late February. I am cleared to show them now that their new album is about to be released. My interest and involvement with the Sam Weber band springs from my son being a member. Mercifully they make very nice music that I…

Haida Gwaii Alley

    This roll of film, my 45th this year, is the last from visits to Haida Gwaii. Once again it is shot in the Village of Masset, but this time on Neopan Acros. I walked into this alley behind the “Christ for First Nations” church (broken windows in the church suggest it’s not going over…

Haida Gwaii Landscapes

    I recently posted a series of Haida Gwaii Seascapes taken during my boat based work in the south end of Haida Gwaii. These shots are from the north end taken during truck based work in the clear cuts around Masset Inlet, and a day off during that recent trip that I had to…

Mayne and Miscellany

This is another roll of film from my summer backlog, dating to mid-July when I was back in town for a week or so. These are all taken with my Canon Elan 7N, most often, or perhaps always, with the EF 50/1.4 mounted. Most of these shots are taken on, or on the way to,…

Haida Gwaii Seascapes

I was in Gwaii Haanas twice this past summer looking for and recording archaeological sites in areas that potentially had not been examined carefully enough by previous researchers. As it happens, for most of the areas looked at I was that previous researcher, in the early 1990s. Twenty years ago there were certain kinds of…

Huckleberry Stroll

In June I went to stay with my granddaughter (and her parents I suppose I should say). They had recently moved from near our house to four hours away – a place where they could afford to have some space around them, grow things, and be near some friends. One of the things we did was go…

A Flintknapper’s Garden

  For Roll 33 I bring you a flintknapper’s garden, and one more shot of hand-made dolls from Mayne Island, taken this time on the Canon Elan 7N with 50mm f1.4 lens (mostly anyway). The Mayne Island shot below is of some dolls that my partner carved – she makes wonderful dolls from wood, and sews…

Back From The Road, For Now

Well, its been 2 months since my last post, which makes this number 30, and puts me behind considerably. I will try to catch up over the next while. During the past two months I have been in the field for 6 weeks on two different projects, writing up two others and took a road…
