52:500c – 52 Weeks, 52 Photos

So here we are, at the finish line again, it was a rocky year, much more than my past several projects, well 400TX:365 had a full switch out of a camera, as did 52:320TXP, but I almost stopped this project, like full stop, end of line. I also made a point each week I would…

52:500c – Week 44 – Disillusionment

I had come across Pottsville, Pennsylvania by accident. I was heading down to Gettysburg back in March and my GPS took me on this weird little route. Right through coal country. So I got to see such places as Ashland, Centralia, but it was Pottsville that drew my attention, mostly because I didn’t drive through…

52:500c – Week 41 – Battle Ground

Both hobbies that I pursue with passion involve shooting. There’s photography, and there’s 19th-Century British Military Reenacting. And oddly enough, I love being the villain which means going south of the border since we’re into War of 1812 territory. Over the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend, I have for the past four years I along with the…

[raulpc] week 36 – Abrantes

Abrantes, Portugal, once again, where I like to go on weekends, to visit my mother, and enjoy the quiet life of a small country town, and life follows a slower pace that I like to melt in around. With my 6006 measuring the light, f/16 focused at 10 meters, so everything from 3 meters to…

52:500c – Week 39 – Black Creek

I love visiting museums and thankfully there are plenty around the area for me to visit. Or in many cases revisit after many years of not having been there. Black Creek Pioneer Village is one such museum located on the northern border of the city of Toronto. The village, a living history museum is very…

EMULSIVE 52 Rolls 2016 – Week 18-21 update

I started off my last 52 Rolls update saying I was BORED. Well, by the time week 18 (May 2-8, 2016) rolled around, not much had changed. Well…maybe a little. It’s easy to forget that whilst I remain the faceless, er…face of EMULSIVE, I’m still a photographer just like you. That means that sometimes I get…

EMULSIVE – Week 14-17 2016 update

I’m bored. Photographically, that pretty much sums up the past few months for me. Yes I know it’s probably not best to start off this update post with a lamenting and needy statement but there it is. Can’t take it back now. I guess it’s partly because the weather has been so unpredictable lately that…

52:500c – Week 21 – Welcome to the Roc

Welcome to the Roc, no, not The Rock (and now you all have Sean Connery’s voice in your head and you’re welcome), but The Roc, or Rochester, New York. While today the city is a far cry from the booming industrial and photographic centre it once was. The city still has a charm to it.…

EMULSIVE – Week 10-13 2016 update

EMULSIVE – Week 10-13 2016 update

“What is this mysterious object in the sky? Why does it burn my eyes? What is this feeling on my skin? Whatever it is, it can’t be good.” Minutes pass and a memory begins creeping to the front of my mind, “Ah yes, I remember..it’s called heat. And that glowing ball…s-s-s-sun!” I wish I was…

52:500c – Week 06 – Organized Chaos

During an average working week I have a nice easy thirty-minute drive to and from work, far separated from the bustle of ‘the city’ and when I say city I mean Toronto. But on the 6th week of the project I was on training for a few days in Toronto. So I took the chance…

52:500c – Week 03 – In the Darkness Bind Them

So there’s this little thing out there called reciprocity failure…and well usually you can adjust your exposure times to account for this little issue with film that the longer it’s exposed to light the less sensitive to light it becomes. But the trouble starts when you don’t have any sort of information about when you…

52:500c – Week 02 – Winter’s Fort

Winter has been something that has been a bit elusive for us in Southern Ontario. Notable the lack of snow the second week into the new year and the new project. So the title of the week isn’t really fitting, but I kept it anyways because if I used “Muddy Fort” people would think I…
