Week 9: A weekend in Duisburg

In week 9 I was a little under the weather. That’s why I wanted to go away for the weekend; I was wondering if a change of scenery would be the cure to my winter blues. I ended up booking a hotel in Duisburg, Germany. My husband and I had been there before. It’s within…

52 Rolls Week 10:52

A bit “Over Exposed” this week.  My XD-11 exposure setting knob was knocked off the set exposure and I didn’t notice right away.  My one pet peeve with the XD-11 is that the exposure dial can easily be knocked out of position. So  I’ll have to reshoot most of the images on the roll, because I shooting them…

Weeks 10 – 13: Toronto in the Heart of Winter

Week 10: Randomness in the area of Sunnybrook Hospital testing out the latest acquisition, a Pentax 645N.  It’s a keeper.   Week 11: Back to nature at the Toronto Botanical Gardens Week 12: Playing with the Lensbaby Plastic at the Toronto Botanical Gardens Week 13: And back to a bit of colour along the Don River…

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 49 — Pushing HP5 in the Fog ….

We have had quite a few foggy days here in Wales so I decided to shoot a roll of HP5 at 1600 with the hope of accentuating the fog with the extra grain and contrast of pushing the film. I was quite pleased with the results, I really do like the look of HP5 when…

Week 36 ….. Let’s push it …..

I have been shooting film like mad over the last couple of weeks especially since getting a C41 home kit. So between the 52 Rolls project, The FP4 Party and playing around with cross processing I have a backlog of stuff to post here and over on my other 2 blogs (see at bottom of…

Week 40: Not FP4+

For week 2 of the #FP4Party, I thought I’d use that roll of 120 that’s been hanging around in the fridge for a few years. I’m not sure why, but it appeared to have been put into a camera and then taken out again. That meant no packaging, or the little bit of tape that…

Week 20: Let’s do it again

I had so much fun with the Bronica SQ-Ai and the 80mm f/2.8 in week 19 that I shot with the same combo the week after as well. And I shot Ilford HP5+ again. It’s becoming my go to film. I think I can stop buying anything else. 🙂
