52 Rolls Week 6:52

This week we take a mid-winter walk along Boulder Creek near the Walden Ponds.    Now I need to qualify the use of ‘Walden Ponds” as this is not Thoreau’s famous location, but a series of flooded gravel pits.  Despite their ‘unromantic’ origins, these ponds provide a welcoming habitat for migrating birds.  We’ll visit the ponds…

52 Rolls Week 5:52

Some views from the International Snow Sculpture Championships 2017, held each February in Breckenridge, Colorado.  This year we didn’t get there until the last day, so some of the sculptures had seen ‘better days’.  Next year we want to try to get there while they are carving.  But for many reasons that didn’t happen this year.…

Finally Week 1:52 for 2017

But noting spectacular.  Just a follow-up to Week 49 of last year, where I had a ‘new’ old camera to test:  The Canonet QL-17 from GoodWill: There was an line/scratch running across the top of the frame.  And there were just too many variables to figure out since the film I used had been hand…

52:500c – Week 09 – Throwing Rocks

It’s a very Canadian thing to do next to Hockey and that’s our other ice sport…curling. For a few years now I’ve been a part of a group in my home town called Connect, it’s a social group for young professionals single or married/coupled but without kids to meet other people in their age range…

Week 3 – 2014: Frosty panoramas

Continuing with the images from January. This time shot with a Minolta Riva Panorama on Agfa Precisa CT (rebranded Fuji Provia 100F). This is the first time that I’m scanning a roll from this camera myself and I was surprised just how soft the images were. But now with a healthy dose of sharpening I…

Roll 3: Winter

Here is a couple of images from a roll i took earlier this winter. The weather was nice and cold at about -20 degrees celsius. Camera: Canon 1V. Lens: Canon 24-70 2.8l Mark I. Film: Fuji Superia 200 @iso 50 developed in Tetenal, scanned using Pakon F135+.

52:320TXP (Remixed) – Weeks 05 and 44

Sometimes the best way to revisit a rather successful project is to give it a remix, in this case it was taking some of my favourite images from the project and taking them into the darkroom. Now in the past I haven’t had access to an enlarger that could print 4×5 film, however a recent…

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…

52:320TXP – Week 48 – The Gazebo Awakens

So the rather odd title comes from a story a friend tells of a D&D (Dungeon’s & Dragons) match where one of the players doesn’t actually know what a Gazebo is, and proceeds to think it a mystical creature, the DM (Dungeon Master) fed up by the player informs him that the Gazebo comes awake…
