Roll 37: Everyday Things

Sometimes, there’s nothing special going on and just ordinary things to photograph.    My son gets the mail at our house every day.   This is one of his “jobs.”   We check the mail every day after I get off of work and pick him up from school. Nothing good today in the box.…

Roll 36: Drive-In Movies

There has been a song playing on the radio lately called “Drive-In Movies” by Ray Lamontange that is continually stuck in my head.   And, it is making me want to visit the drive-in here in town.   I haven’t been there in decades but I would like to go again.   My husband differs…

Roll 34: Hike Above

The Canon SureShot 90u and roll of Fuji Superia X-tra made their way on a hike just south of Reno, Nevada.   This is a relatively new trail that the county is maintaining for the public so I thought I would force my five year old to check it out for some exercise.   He…

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 32: The Marina in the Desert

Sometimes my work day sends me out on expedition across town and then leaves me with some free time inbetween activities.   A while ago, I had some extra time before a meeting and decided to detour to the Sparks Marina.   This is a big lake/marina thing in the middle of Sparks, NV.  …

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 29: Lake Tahoe

By far, one of my most favorite photo subjects is Lake Tahoe.   I just live too close to this blue mecca to not be enamored with it.   For my entire life, it has never failed to awe me with beauty.    Even luckier for me, I have a few random work days that cause me…

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 25: BELIEVE

  For this roll, I headed back to downtown Reno to capture a temporary art installation by the river.   The “BELIEVE” letters were out on the playa of the Black Rock Desert for Burning Man and have been loaned to the city for part of the July Arttown festivities.   It’s a pretty neat…
