Week 51 – The Brothers

Roll 99! More cold, dark winter weather here in the UK this week with freezing fog an added bonus. Out of necessity, most of my photography at this time of year is at night, but as long as I have some Neopan, I’m OK with that…I’m looking after this beautiful Alfa for my dad. It…

roll 52: I made it

Wow, I wasn’t sure when I started this journey if I would be able to complete it, but I did. I will admit that I ran out of things to say from time to time, but I am glad I did this project for 2014. This will be my last post. In 2015 I plan…

roll 50_ it’s a capitol Christmas

I travel to Salem once a month for a meeting with a group called British Travel Friends.  We share our stories and photos of travel to Great Britain. recently I had extra time in salem so stopped in at Oregon’s State Capitol and was happily surprised to arrive in the middle of the Christmas program.…

roll 49- books

I run by the motto “you can never have too many books” or shoes, for that matter. Luckily, at home, we have many places to house both although I think some may have to find new homes. I grew up surrounded by books and I still prefer the feel, smell and sight of a printed…

roll 38_ long exposures

For the next year, once a month, I am going out with two friends for a day of pinhole photography. In September we chose to go to downtown Portland. I took my bag of animal masks and we had a lot of fun posing in different locations around the downtown core. Because we are using…

roll 33_ Trillium Lake and a pinhole

Summer 2014 may go down as one of the hottest and driest in Portland’s history. The bright sunshine and hot days are wonderful for outdoor activities like swimming, but not that nice for photography…..unless it’s pinhole. A few weeks ago I escaped the heat with two of my pinhole friends and we spent the day…

Rolls 12 and 13 at the University of Washington

For the past several years I made it a point to walk along Portland’s waterfront under the Sakura cherry trees. The bloom season is very short but during that time the trees make quite a show. They attract photographers day and night and I am just one of many. I try to visit the trees…
