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…

2017, Roll 5 -Too Much Kissing

One of the downsides to posting individual rolls to the 52 Rolls blog is that pictures will be posted up out of context. If you’re the type of photographer that gathers pictures  into collections over many years, the shots on a roll will often be quite eclectic and not make a lot of sense when…

Weeks 47 and 48 – Poland (reprise)

I was in Poland for parts of weeks 47 and 48 and in the 5 days we were there, shot as many rolls of film. That takes me to an unexpected and unprecedented 95 rolls for the year (it was 10 rolls last year). I expect that as we get towards the end of the…

Week 41: More Of The Same

Roll#15; Four random images

Well, all my images are random.  I’ve been using public transportation for the last month and a half due to car problems, but I like taking the bus and train to and from work.  It’s a nice way to relax.  You can read, catch up with emails, take a power nap.  The only thing that…

Weeks 10, 11 and 12 – using lenses for once

Back to using cameras with actual glass stuck on the front for a change. Recently acquired two MF cameras that needed putting through their paces. The mighty Pentacon SIX and a Mamiya M645 1000s. Both of which I find I like. The Mamiya’s main issue is that is not 6×6 😉   We are experiencing…

Roll 12: Steam

One of the first rolls in this project for me included a photo of this location and I wasn’t happy with the results so I went back to it.   This time, I shot with the Yashica Mat EM on Portra 400, 120 film.   I drive by this spot every morning on the way…
