Rolls 27-29: Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day Before and After

For me, my tolerant wife, and the Pinholistas, Worldwide Pinhole Day was a multi-day affair, a beer-soaked celebration of lensless photography and a grand experiment in Internet fellowship.  It started in Amsterdam last year, and we converged on Portland, OR this year on the last weekend of April.  Naturally, Seattle and Portland residents were well represented, but emissaries from the…

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 51: Last minute Christmas

After 50 rolls and 50 weeks I am running out of things to say. My roll 51 is from my Olympus OM1 and Portra 400 film. I scanned on an Epson V700 and did no editing, which is pretty obvious. I think I am burned out. I made a  trip into downtown Portland to do…

Roll 45 – A very Holga Weekend. part 1

Honestly, I am so not sure at all how this is playing out with regard to time. So please forgive me if my posts are anachronistic. I am choosing them based on the date I scanned the rolls. I had so much fun with my Holga and doing double exposures, so when Toy Camera Day…

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 44_ Toy Camera Day

I took out two cameras for World Toy Camera Day on October 18th, my Holga 120 CFN and the Holga PAN. I don’t have the negatives back for the Holga PAN so those will have to wait until next week, but here are the ones from the plain old black plastic Holga 120. Sadly my…

Roll 43_ October Pinhole Outing

For our October outing we went back to the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island with a bag of masks and our pinhole cameras. The morning started with two of us taking public transportation to the Arbor Lodge Coffee house in North Portland on Rosa Parkway. What a charming place, great coffee and cinnamon rolls and…

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…

It’s the Hasselblad X-Pan for Roll 24

I’m still finding the focusing on the X-Pan to be a bit tricky. The screen is much darker than my Hasselblad 500 CM. Out of a roll of 36, these were a few of my favorites made in and around the Portland Saturday Market.     I also walked around parts NW and SW Portland…

Roll 23_ Fleet week in Portland

I have managed to keep up with using at least one roll of film each week, but I have fallen down on my posting here, on my personal blog and on Flickr due to the World Cup. I can’t help it, I have to watch every match and after all, it’s only every 4 years.…
