Roll 42: Back at the Park

A while back, I visited Idlewild Park here in Reno and didn’t have very good luck with the camera that I chose.   This time, I used the EXA with some Fuji 100.   If you wanna catch up, here’s the old post.   If not, you can enjoy the trees changing colors and notice how low…

Roll 41: The EXA goes to The Mobil

Today’s film adventure takes the EXA and roll of Fuji 100 down I-395 south of Reno to Tioga Pass in California at the eastern gate to Yosemite.   I was in search of fall color and met big grey clouds for a dusting of snow.   I didn’t really get all of the leaves and…

Roll 35: Hike Above the Other Side

The EXA went hiking with me again.   I bought a new strap for it and, now, it is so much more comfortable to tote around all day.   Watch out, folks, I armed and dangerous now!   Again, I shot on Kodak Ektar 100.    And, if you saw my last hiking post, you’ll…

Roll 33: Best in the West Rib Cook Off

The handy-dandy EXA and a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 went on another festival adventure.   This time we went to Sparks, NV, for the annual Best in the West Rib Cook Off.   Woo-hooo!   Every Labor Day weekend, the grillers, smokers and masses of humanity gather to consume as many beef ribs as…

Roll 31: Urban Monochrome

It took me a while to post this one.   I have gotten behind again so I’m adding all of the images to a gallery to streamline it a bit. These were all taken with my trusty EXA on Kodak TMAX 100, 35mm, and I was part of a photowalk group in downtown Reno, NV.  It’s…

Roll 28: Lassen Volcanic National Park

Hello … remember me?   I have fallen behind a bit in my rolls of film and posting.   Yikes.   That happens quickly, doesn’t it?   Do not fret, I shall return.   The light and air of summer has me in her grasp.   There is still film to be shot and developed…

Roll 27: Lazy Summer Day

    Summer is just rolling along and I had some Kodak Gold to run through the EXA again.   So, I thought I would just attempt to play with the focus in the hot light of a summer afternoon.   Nothing fancy, just some shots of my yard. The hollyhocks did pretty well this…

Roll 26: The EXA Goes Camping

      Yup, the EXA went camping.   If you have noticed, I hardly go anywhere without the EXA anymore.   This camera is a beast of a fine machine.   I can’t get enough.   So, when my family went camping in the Sierras, the EXA got to go, too.   These shots…

Roll 23: The EXA in The Wild West

If you saw my last post, the photos weren’t all that great and it was more of a film experiment than anything else.   No worries–I brought along the trust EXA that has quickly become of my favorite cameras.   It is a solid machine.   And, a nice roll of Kodak Portra 160 made for…

Roll 20: The EXA Goes to the River

I’m still in love with the EXA.    So, it went to the Truckee River in Reno, Nevada, recently to celebrate kayaks at the Reno River Festival.   I forgot that I was shooting black and white so I’m not as excited with the results but they are interesting.   It’s funny that I totally…

Roll 19: The EXA Rides a Train

The EXA and a roll of Kodak T-Max 100 B&W went to the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City recently.    And, we all rode a very special train.    Please allow me to introduce you to the McKeen Motor Car.   She’s a beauty. All photos are straight out of camera, no post-processing adjustments.…

Roll 18: The EXA Goes to The Park

  For this roll, I took out the Ihagee Dresden EXA with some Kodak Ektar 100.   I had just shot the last roll a few days before and felt comfortable that the results would be good.   I probably should have waited to get them developed first but this camera is quickly becoming a…
