Weeks 34 – 42: Everyday New Orleans

The following may sound like an excuse, but seriously it isn’t. There are just way too many photos from my summer in New Orleans (60+rolls all medium format) to choose my favourites for a weekly posting.  In an effort to cause myself as little pain as possible you have this massive summary of nine weeks.…

Weeks 19-22: Pretty Much Wandering Around Toronto

Week 19:  I started with a wander at the further end of Queen Street East in the Beach.  Camera and film used was my Hasselblad 503CXi and Kodak Portra 400 film.   Week 20: This week I was further west and north into Cabbagetown and so much caught my eye.  Camera and film used was my Pentax 645N and Kodak…

Week 18: Purchased a Holga 120N

Walking in the other direction at the Beach, Toronto for more from the Winter Stations Design Exhibition and other sights along the way. The Holga 120N uses 120 film and is one of my preferred formats, 6X6. I had to buy one.  While I love the dreamy and oh so soft edges,  I’m not so sure…

Week 45: Street furniture

This week I went out with the Holga loaded with a roll of Fuji Pro400h.  I was short on time and had less then 30mins to take some photos, get some lunch and head back to the office. Thus I though I would challenge my self to get 12 hopefully interesting images not only in…

Week 44: Getting a Sandwich

So for this week I shot a roll of Kodak Portra 400 BW in the Holga.  That’s right Portra but in Black & White a relatively rare discontinued film.  I shot this during a lunchtime walk from the office to get a sandwich, I thought I would document what I saw on the way, they…

Week 42: Foggy

So for this update I was finally back out with the Holga.  I had been neglecting this camera for a while, partly because I needed a change and partly due to dull grey winter weather making it a little less suitable. Anyway I had this camera with me as the day before was the work…

52 Rolls Week 47:52

I’ve been promising a Holga Stroll down Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, Colorado.  Finally did it and will share the results this week and next: Our focus this week is the 19th Century Architecture along the Pearl Street Mall.   Unfortunately the character of the Mall has changed a lot in the 10 years we’ve…

Week 35: Alpha, Beta, Delta

This week was pretty rainy and dull so I figured I would try a high ISO film in the Holga, namely Ilford Delta 3200.  I also used a red filter, but as per a previous post I don’t think the plastic one makes much difference. I headed to Somerset House in London where they had…

Week 33:Slide in the City

Week 31 & Week 32 got skipped, for a few reasons.  But last week to make the most of the last days of summer, I thought I would try some more slide film namely Provia 100f. The results are not quite as good as last time, I guess because the light was not quite as…

52 Rolls Week 34:52

Another visit to the Foothills of the Front Range.  Above is the Gross Dam & Reservoir, completed in 1954 and filled in 1955. One of many smaller reservoirs on the east side of the Continental Divide.  This image is a Photomerge of two Holga images. Part of the Denver Water System, established in 1918, because…
