Finally Week 1:52 for 2017

But noting spectacular.  Just a follow-up to Week 49 of last year, where I had a ‘new’ old camera to test:  The Canonet QL-17 from GoodWill: There was an line/scratch running across the top of the frame.  And there were just too many variables to figure out since the film I used had been hand…

I’ll Leave you with Week #50 to end the year.  Last time we had a Camera Test with the Canon QL.  This week we take a look at some familiar images (Mamiya 7 versions posted in week #39). These taken with the Canonet G-III QL: Both as it turns out are labeled model Q-17, but…

A Roll of Mistakes

The story of this roll of film is a litany of mistakes. I thought I should try some black and white in the EOS3 only having shot colour with it. I had an unexpired roll of Ilford Delta 400 in the fridge so that was my choice (everything else is expired which introduces an additional…

Now for something that didn’t quite work.  I tried working in a modern church setting with my Personal Vision Theme.  But The Church was not as I had remembered and the stone work didn’t fit.  But I did get some interesting shots.  A very difficult space to photograph.  I hadn’t realized that there were really…

  For this week a trip to Mesa Verde National Park, and a tour of the Long House: Below, evidence that you can take a tour with 30 or so of your ‘closest’ friends and still make a photograph with no people in it if you try really hard……Mesa Verde was a Zoo. Over run,…

Twelve More Postings to go for this year’s project…….This week we visit with The Ancient Ones @ Aztec Ruins: Formerly the Anasazi, but we learned on this trip that Native Americans in the region (some of whom are undoubtably descendants of these people) prefer the term ‘Ancient Ones’. I make it a practice to call…

52 Rolls Week 37:52

I’ve let an extra week go by as we are caught up in the throes of home renovations.  I post more about that later…… This week’s subject takes us to Como, for the Boreas Pass Railway Festival.  Below, the best exposure, because there was a hitch…… My trusty Canonet was on the wrong setting…….So all my exposures…

Week 26: Do Not read if you do not like bad language

How the actual fuck is it only halfway fucking through.  Twenty six bastard more weeks to go, Twenty Six!  Why the actual fuck did I agree to this, let alone to shoot all images on that gold plated shitgibbon of a camera, the Holga.  That’s 312 motherfucking lack of control exposures still to go. THREE…

#8.0: Helicopter

An emergency rescue helicopter landed on a mission in our park. I really like helicopters and the policemen allowed me to shoot some pictures.
