roll 48_ Hasselblad X-Pan

I prefer square format, like with my Hasselblad 500, but once in a while I poll out the X-Pan and then remember why I like this camera so much. I love that you can move from panorama to 2×3 mode with the flip of a switch. It’s also a light-weight camera to carry and great…

Roll 46 – A Very Holga Weekend, Part 2

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was on a roll (ha!) with my Holga. I thought I’d take it out for another spin. I tried some experimental things, like pressing the shutter several times indoors at the supermarket. These were all taken around the small town I live in, Sandy, OR.

Roll 44 – The pumpkin patch

For roll 44 I visited a pumpkin patch in Sauvie Island with my pinhole friends Gretchen and Donna. We had a great day playing pinhole in the corn maze. At one point we found ourselves surrounded by kids and I scared them with a zombie horse mask. I may have gotten punched in the face…

Roll 38 – bushcraft on the secret island.

For roll 38 I took my Olympus XA out hiking with me, just for fun. I have said this before, but I love that little camera so much. It has become my favorite camera, hands down (aside from my Zero 4×5). It fits so easily in my pocket and doesn’t weigh me down when I…

Roll 37 -Camping at a haunted lake

For roll 37 I took my pinhole camera camping with me. We went to Little Crater Lake, which is a small (and deep) lake on Mt Hood. It was on a Sunday night and we had the entire campground to ourselves, which was kind of creepy. There are stories about the lake being haunted. According…

Roll 36 – An Adventure on the Mountain

For roll 36 I found myself and my pinhole camera on Mt Hood at a lake I’d never visited before. I have to admit, I don’t remember the name of the lake! But it was beautiful. It was quiet and serene. We thought about camping there the following weekend but decided on somewhere else. These…

Roll 35 – A pinhole adventure with friends

In August I began hanging out with two very talented Pinhole Photographers, Gretchen and Donna. We have since started having pinhole adventures once a month and it’s been a blast! For our first pinhole adventure we decided to visit Trillium Lake. I brought my Zero Image 4×5 and shot both large format film and 120…

roll 42_ fog

When Autumn arrives in the Portland area we are treated to early morning fog. I try to get out early enough to see the fog, the dew on the long grasses and the rising sun through the trees. It burns off quickly, but while it lasts I try to make a few images with my…

roll 37_ our Farmer’s Market

My neighborhood hosts its own farmers market and the last one of the season was on September 11th. Doesn’t seem like an appropriate day for a celebration, but what our veterans, police and fire responders do every day allows us to celebrate and be free. We’ll never forget the lives lost on 9-11 and in…

roll 36_ farm destruction

The farms are going. as my neighborhood in Wilsonville continues to expand it is swallowing up the neighborhood farms. I understand the progress and the homes are selling quickly. I also understand that the farmers who owned the land made a lot of money and are probably enjoying a very nice retirement, but I will…

roll 35_ Valley Road trip

My husband and I love spending one day each weekend driving around Oregon and SW Washington. This day we headed south to visit two nurseries outside Albany and then drove into Corvallis to walk around the town before the new school year starts at Oregon State University(my rival school). I chose my Canon AE1 and…
