Week 7: Even more redscale

In week 7 I took my Holga 120GN with me on my walk into the city center. Since it was still #BIFscale17, I had a roll of Lomography redscale XR50-200 in my camera. Near my house is some sort of wood construction, and since I like silhouettes on redscale I took some pics of the…

Week 5: More redscale

Since it was still #BIFscale17, I loaded another roll of redscale film in my Holga 120GN, this time Lomography Redscale XR50-200. My husband and I went to a farmer’s market nearby, and I took my Holga with me. Again, the results are meh, but I will post some of them.

Week 5: Redscale, trees and selfie experiments

(LC-A+ and Fuji Neopan 400) In week 5 I went for a walk with my Holga 120GN, loaded with Lomography Redscale 100 film, and my LC-A+, loaded with Fuji Neopan 400. It was the start of #BIFscale17 (or February Redscale month), and I wanted to join in. Unfortunately most of my redscale shots this week…

Week 4: Not much inspiration

Left luggage (Holga 120GN and Rollei RPX400) In week 4 I didn’t have much inspiration or much time. I took my Holga (one of them…) with me on my trip to the chiropractor and my walk through the neighbourhood. Here are some shots from that roll. All shot with my Holga 120GN and Rollei RPX…

Week 3: Fun with friends from abroad

The Norwegian church in Rotterdam (Holga 120GN and Fomapan 400) In week 3 we had a visit from our friends from Ireland. Together we explored Rotterdam: we saw the Norwegian church, climbed the Euromast, visited Delfshaven (the harbour from which the Mayflower with the pilgrim fathers on it sailed to the USA via England). Villa…

Week 1 2017: Rotterdam

So, am I really going to do this again? We’ll see. In 2014 I almost finished a 52 rolls project on this blog. The last few weeks went missing, due to a family emergency. In 2016 I signed up again, and nothing happened. I completely blocked, and photography was not a part of my life…

Week #44 Waalsdorpervlakte

This location had been on my “I want to photograph this” list for a long time. I have a dad who’s very interested in WWI and WWII. When we were on holiday when I was a kid, he’d always take us to see monuments, military cemeteries and other stuff that’s related to WWI and WWII…

Week #42 World Toy Camera Day

Week 42 was the week of World Toy Camera Day. As a fan of toy cameras, I had to participate. I took my Diana F+ loaded with Fomapan 200 and my Holga 120GN loaded with Agfa CR200 on a walk in Rotterdam. The weather was lovely, and I wanted to explore some new territory. I…

Week #37 Ireland part 3

We ended our trip through Ireland with a short stay with our friends in Dublin. They showed us a little bit of the city (Temple Bar, the Botanic Gardens and Glasnevin Cemetery and Howth). We also went to Trim and Bective Abbey, which were absolutely lovely locations. Ireland was so much fun and so beautiful…

Week #36 Ireland part 2

Week 36 saw us still touring through Ireland. We had made our way to the southcoast, and visited Charles Fort, several beach towns and the Ring of Kerry. Something odd happened at Charles Fort: first the back of my pinhole camera fell off mid-roll, and then my Olympus OM-2 suddenly stopped working. Since then my…

Week #35 Ireland part 1

We went on holiday to Ireland in week 35. Normally my husband and I go on city trips, but this time we wanted to do things differently. We had only booked a plane ticket, and we had arranged with friends in Dublin we’d crash at their place the first night. They offered us their car…

Week #31 Peace and quiet

I live in a big city and I work in a big city. Every now and then I just long for some peace and quiet. Next to the motorway I take when I drive to work is a beautiful landscape, a typical Dutch one, with small canals, fields, trees and a farm here and there.…
