52:500c – Week 49 – Upon Avon

You’d think that with a title like “Upon Avon” I would be doing some portraits for Shakespearian actors. And you would be wrong. However, the town that I was is known rather well for their theater performances of Bard’s work. That town is, of course, Stratford. Stratford and I go way back, as in some…

52:500c – Week 45 – High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of Wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there I’ve chased the shouting wind along,…

52:500c – Week 42 – Royal City

Guelph, Ontario. Not a name of a city that you would think of being related to “Royal” but there it is. Guelph’s downtown is a unique one in Ontario as well and one that I’ve been wanted to include in a ’52’ project since the second one I did. But it never materialized so here…

Post #2 – Continuing A Tradition

Today was a little different for me.  I was on my way home and I drove passed a local camera and film supply chain, known as Henrys.  (www.henrys.com). I’m always a weakling when it comes to film and camera stores.  Well I decided to pop in and see what they had, and sure enough there…

Week 33: Eastman 5363 testing

So this post is way out of order as I still need to develop a bunch of C-41 rolls from previous weeks, but I got these done for a discussion thread over on flickr and thought I would post this week before the others I bought 3 rolls of the Eastman 5363 from FilmPhotographyProject and…

Week 29: Yantic

I went to a section of my town that is off the beaten path (there is a ‘No Outlet’ sign at the turn-off), where there is an abandoned mill along with a mill town.  It is located along the banks of the Yantic River and is, surprisingly, called ‘Yantic’ which is from a local native word for…

Week 25, Machimoodus

A new camera, a new hike in a state park I hadn’t visited before, despite it being rather close to my house,  Machimoodus State Park. Machimoodus is a native word for ‘place of bad noises’.  There are a lot of tectonic rumblings and every once in a while we get small earthquakes.  I can recall…

Week 21, Local Car Show

So my hometown has a car show once a month on the 3rd Wednesday during the ‘nice weather’ season (April-Sept), but the April show got cancelled because we had so much rain.  Thus the May event was the first they held this year.  Most towns and cities in New England have a common area we…
