Roll 19 More from Japan

I am puzzled by the chronology of this roll and how it fits with the other two, since it contains photos from two bookends in the trip. It’s so hard to keep track of this stuff…..This roll didn’t yield much, for whatever reason. It was Portra 100 shot on the Diana F+. Anyway the first…

Roll 17 Sapporo

Finally I’ve arrived at a few rolls that I shot during my trip to Japan at the end of April/early May. I took three cameras, intending to make the Nikon FE (for which I have a lot of lovely lenses) my primary camera, with the Rollei 35s as a pocket companion and the Diana as…

52 Rolls Week 32:52

Still waiting for those Eclipse film images to be developed.  So a “Throw Back” to Art Night out, which I never published because I thought I might do more shooting at a subsequent event.  As things go, I never got back to another Art Night; just a very busy summer……. Here are the most interesting…

Roll 16 More cross processing

You may have noticed that there have been quite a few rolls of cross processed slide film in this series. This is because I have (or did have) at lot of this film in my stash, and circumstances have made it impractical to send film out for processing. So I’ve been processing all my own…

Weeks 23-25: From Flowers To Back Laneways

Week 23: It’s all about spring flowers. Two cameras that week, my Contax 645 and my Hasselblad 503CW, both with Kodak Portra 400 film.   Week 24: Next up is a visit to Riverdale Farm. Riverdale Farm is a 7.5 acre city operated farm in the heart of Cabbagetown, an urban neighbourhood in Toronto. Camera…

52 Rolls Week 17:52

This week the Results from Worldwide Pinhole Day (April 30, 2017).  You remember the Portra 160 Pinhole Time Tests.  So here we put the to work at Red Rocks Park.  Famous for the Natural Amphitheatre:    We try to go here for a concert once a year.  This year we will be seeing the Steve…

Roll 10 More around the town

I realized I’m very behind on posting. I’m actually pretty current on shooting, but not so much on developing and posting. This roll is more of my exploration of the underbelly of Encinitas, Portra 400 shot on the Isolette. I think the hazy overcast we were having through much of March provided good conditions for…

Rolls 7 & 8 Delightful Diana

I decided to put these two rolls in one post since they were both shot on the Diana. Since my Pentax 67 which I intended as my primary instrument for exploration of medium format this year has been in the ICU for a month I was left with the Isolette and the Diana. I am…

Week 18: Purchased a Holga 120N

Walking in the other direction at the Beach, Toronto for more from the Winter Stations Design Exhibition and other sights along the way. The Holga 120N uses 120 film and is one of my preferred formats, 6X6. I had to buy one.  While I love the dreamy and oh so soft edges,  I’m not so sure…

Rolls 5 & 6 The project takes shape

Now that I’ve decided on a theme for this year (which includes not just the work I’m posting here, but instant and 35mm photography) I am having so much fun exploring the place I’ve lived for years and finding amazing stuff. I’m also enjoying getting to know my Diana, which is a much more competent…
