Roll 51: Neighborhood Pond

The Nikon FM2 and I went exploring to a neighborhood park by my office with another roll of Kodak Elite Chrome 35mm slide film.   I don’t know why I have never been by this hidden little spot but it is a very nice lunch time getaway with a trail and little bridges.   And,…

Roll 42: Back at the Park

A while back, I visited Idlewild Park here in Reno and didn’t have very good luck with the camera that I chose.   This time, I used the EXA with some Fuji 100.   If you wanna catch up, here’s the old post.   If not, you can enjoy the trees changing colors and notice how low…

Roll 39: Crystal Peak Park, Verdi, NV

I’m a sucker for a good neighborhood park.   And, it makes for an easy way to explore with my family, check out some fun little, hidden spots and, of course, burn through a good roll of film.  I headed out with the Bolsey Model C and a roll of Fuji 400 35mm to revisit…

Roll 36: Drive-In Movies

There has been a song playing on the radio lately called “Drive-In Movies” by Ray Lamontange that is continually stuck in my head.   And, it is making me want to visit the drive-in here in town.   I haven’t been there in decades but I would like to go again.   My husband differs…

Roll 34: Hike Above

The Canon SureShot 90u and roll of Fuji Superia X-tra made their way on a hike just south of Reno, Nevada.   This is a relatively new trail that the county is maintaining for the public so I thought I would force my five year old to check it out for some exercise.   He…

Roll 31: Urban Monochrome

It took me a while to post this one.   I have gotten behind again so I’m adding all of the images to a gallery to streamline it a bit. These were all taken with my trusty EXA on Kodak TMAX 100, 35mm, and I was part of a photowalk group in downtown Reno, NV.  It’s…

Roll 25: BELIEVE

  For this roll, I headed back to downtown Reno to capture a temporary art installation by the river.   The “BELIEVE” letters were out on the playa of the Black Rock Desert for Burning Man and have been loaned to the city for part of the July Arttown festivities.   It’s a pretty neat…

Roll 20: The EXA Goes to the River

I’m still in love with the EXA.    So, it went to the Truckee River in Reno, Nevada, recently to celebrate kayaks at the Reno River Festival.   I forgot that I was shooting black and white so I’m not as excited with the results but they are interesting.   It’s funny that I totally…

Roll 18: The EXA Goes to The Park

  For this roll, I took out the Ihagee Dresden EXA with some Kodak Ektar 100.   I had just shot the last roll a few days before and felt comfortable that the results would be good.   I probably should have waited to get them developed first but this camera is quickly becoming a…

Roll 17: The Ihagee Dresden EXA

This week’s roll hails from the Ihagee Dresden EXA.   The inaugural roll for me in this lovely machine was Kodak Gold 100. This is another camera from my new loot of camera treasures.   I’m already pretty fond of it but I have to admit that I had never heard of the maker and…

Roll 13: Spring

Spring has sprung.   I spent the day at the University of Nevada, Reno, and managed to sneak away for a few shots with the Yashica Mat EM on Kodak Portra 400, 120 film. I attended here but don’t end up back on campus very often anymore so it was nice to visit the swans…
