Split Rail Fence

This is the first roll of film I put through the Olympus mjuii in 2015. It was in March and I put the exposed roll of Ilford Delta 100 in the fridge anticipating doing my own processing. Well, that has not happened so I sent it in for processing a week ago. It does seem…

Downtown 50

Another roll of film from the Olympus mjuii, my pocket camera for the past few months. I took these photos earlier this week – we had a few minutes of sun as it was setting and I was downtown at the time. This is week 50 for me. I just discovered that this is a 53 week year,…

Green and White II

Today’s post has shots taken on an Olympus mjuii (aka Stylus Epic) that has lived in my pocket all fall – these photographs date from early November through to a mid-December. I have taken other photos with other cameras film and digital during that time but there are some subjects and occasions when the mjuii…

Haida Gwaii Canoe

  This roll of film for my 44th offering has a real mix of places and things on it and so it was hard to find a theme in the photos. It was in the camera in Victoria and when I took a trip to Nanaimo, as well as when I went to Haida Gwaii on my…

Haida Gwaii Townscape

    This roll of film concentrates on the Village of Masset and follows from my Haida Gwaii Seascapes and Haida Gwaii Landscapes posts taken on recent work trips to Haida Gwaii. I don’t usually stay in Masset but a couple of weeks ago I spent a week there. These are shots from around town, many of places where I…

Kiix?in Views

    Before my latest trip to Haida Gwaii (images coming soon!) I made a day trip to the Kiix?in National Historic Site located in Barkley Sound near Bamfield. It is about a 4 hour drive (much of it on logging roads) and 20 minute hike from Victoria, but worth every minute of getting there, and back.…

Analogue Photography in Portland

  About two weeks ago my partner and I drove to Portland Oregon to give a talk, and for some down-time. As it turned out I did not shoot a lot of film there – this roll has Portland sandwiched between Port Angeles. Rather like a Reuben with Wonder bread*. We took the ferry from…

On The Road Again

This is my roll 29 shot on an Olympus mjuII with expired Fuji Superia X-TRA 400. This roll lingered in the camera for a while, so it overlaps with some of the others I have already posted – it is impossible to keep a sequence when using more than one camera! Some of the shots…

Green and White

  For week 19 I am working with a roll of Ilford XP2 that expired in about 2004. It is a black and white film that is process in C41 chemistry and has serious colour shifts as can be seen in the first shot above. However it scanned just fine and there are more than…

Keep the Vermin Out

  I took these pictures as a result of being so well organised that I arrived at my dentist an hour early for an appointment. There is a mall across the street with a very good book store, so naturally I knew how to kill an hour, especially with a camera on my person. Today’s shots are from…

Sweet Dreams

  Week fifteen has produced serendipitous collages of the old and new; double exposures of recent images superimposed on a roll of expired and essentially dead film that was partly exposed a long time ago. In the image above I love how the kids clothes drain off down the lines of the branches of trees I…

Eleven from mjuII

  This really is my week-12 roll, sequentially shot week-11 is undeveloped waiting for me to get some chemistry and develop at home. Both are shot with an Olympus mjuII (aka Stylus Epic) that I have been testing. The camera has not really grabbed hold and proved its reputation to me. I think some other…
