52 Rolls Week 12:52

A Panorama Adventure Part I:  When I started my Mamiya 7 feeding frenzy I saw a 35 mm Panorama insert on line and said, ‘what the heck, buy it and try it’.  It didn’t cost much (Compared to all the Mamiya 7 kit) I had so no harm done to the finances. Sorry I didn’t…

2017, Roll 15: Home Is Where the Heart Is

Through the last four months of 2016, Emulsive.org ran the @FP4Party. Film shooters were encouraged to burn up a roll of the Ilford film during the first week of the month and post results on Twitter during the third. There was a competition for the best entries, voted on by the site’s followers.

Season 2, Week 1 – APAP

I wasn’t at all sure if I’d do another year of 52 Rolls (and I’m not 100% even now), but I seem to have come to an arrangement with myself to carry on, albeit with a reduced set (self-imposed) ‘rules’.

52 Rolls Week 48:52

Today we start with a stroll just off the Mall and make our way back to Pearl Street.  Above, Lucille’s Restaurant, with a typical gathering of waiting customers.  Purports to be ‘authentic’, but having lived in New Orleans it would take a lot to impress me.  Besides, I’ve had the Beignets, and if you want…

52 Rolls Week 47:52

I’ve been promising a Holga Stroll down Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, Colorado.  Finally did it and will share the results this week and next: Our focus this week is the 19th Century Architecture along the Pearl Street Mall.   Unfortunately the character of the Mall has changed a lot in the 10 years we’ve…

52 Rolls Week 45:52

I may have mentioned the Personal Vision workshop that I’ve been taking.  One of my final themes involves Ascending Stairs.  Check out the link and see if you think these fit the theme……… These images are from the National Center for Atmospheric Research, whose original iconic building was designed by I.M Pei.  These photos were…

52 Rolls Week 43:52

I’ve been taking a course  “Exploring Your Personal Artistic Vision”.  In the end we are supposed to produce a book of images that express something important to us.  I’ve been exploring Spirituality focussed on my recent experiences with the Ancient Ones.  So this week I’ll share the image that started it all:   Links to…

Week 32: Mid-Life Crisis?

I had a two-seater, convertible sports car when I was 26. I’ve (sort of) played a guitar since I was 35. I’ve divorced and married a younger woman when I was 38. I’ve had a carbon bicycle that cost almost a month’s wages since I was 40. But I can’t ride a motorcycle, so a…

Week 21: Stick or Twist?

Roll 38 of the year is another of those shot, processed, scanned and uploaded on the same day. Another Sunday arrived at the end of a week that I’d not held a camera, meaning that I had the familiar pressure of needing to get out and shoot to maintain my weekly output. As it happens, on…

Week 20 continued: Sprocket Rocket

In addition to the roll that I shot through the Lomokino, week 20 also saw me burn up another roll of TMax through another Lomography creation, the Sprocket Rocket. The camera shoots a 106º field of view across the width of 2 standard 24x36mm frames, and it also exposes the sprocket holes. Like the Lomokino,…

Week 8: Newcastle

Two rolls for the price of one in this post (numbers 14 and 15 of the year already) but shot over the course of a couple of days and on a single trip, so I though I’d combine them.
