52 Rolls Week 25:52

Finishing up our walking tour of Ft Collins with the breweries:  Cooper Smith’s and Equinox……   We learned lots of brewing folklore….like copper kettles and tuns bringing good luck.  Of course you can’t see that this is copper, so you’ll have to take my word for it. Equinox had some interesting features. Like their unique…

52 Rolls Week 11:52

Colorado is quickly becoming know for Craft Beers.  There are almost too many breweries.  I just visited a new one yesterday.  But We’ve also discovered another Beer Festival:  Hops and Handrails: Over 65 Breweries and impossible to ample them all.  But we did our best.  Just a few of our favorites: I particularly liked the…

52 Rolls Week 21:52

A bit late with my posting due to the Holiday Weekend….Memorial Day here in the US. If I said this was the last image you would ever see of the Colorado State Capitol Building here, I’d be lying.  So I won’t promise that.  We revisited this location on a sunny day during Doors Open Denver.…

Week 12, Pinhole Fun

Along with the panoramic pinhole from Week 11, I got a prototype 6×4.5 pinhole from Vermeer. One thing I love about both of these designs compared to my other Vermeer pinholes is the integral filter ring, which makes it easy to add ND filters or color filters for b&w. In this case, I shot most…

52 Rolls Week 3:52

My intended Week 3 roll vanished into the abyss of the U.S. Post Service.  Never fear, I have tracked it down and will have it in time to post for Week #4.  So to fill the gap I was forced to actually shoot and process a roll myself last week. Starting with images from near…

Week 1 – Intentions

Despite saying in my intro that I would mainly shoot medium and large format I intend to start this week with a roll of 35mm. The idea is just to give some context around where I live and hang out photographically speaking. I’ll be using a roll Kodak TMax 400 and I will spend the week just…

Week 19: Georgetown

Week 19 is brought to you by random stuff. The black and white shots are from a roll that sat in my T60 for about a month. Half of it was randoms, and the other half got shot on the same trip as the Holga. Those are their own special thing. I was out with my…

Week 18: Chinatown, with a side of T-MAX 400

In week 18, I did some more exploring around my usual haunts in Chinatown. This time I thought it might be productive to make some challenges for myself. The first challenge was to “get low”, and the second was to make an interesting photo of a parking meter. Both happened, although I’ll let you be…

Week 2: Shooting at Home with TMY

At the beginning of week two, my SQ-Ai finally got here! So, this roll served the practical purpose of making sure everything was working OK. The first half of the roll is super boring – flat white walls to check for weirdness in the lens, blank frames to check for light leaks, and a picture of…
