Roll 49: Christmas

I’m a sucker for the holidays and even though they are long gone now that this is being posted, I thought you might like a peek into how my family celebrates.    It was one of those days where the natural light coming in the house seemed just right for film.    I think it…

Roll 48: Nevada Sky

As I get closer to that #52 goal, I’m getting more anxious about completing the project.   The delay between shooting, processing and blogging has been a little bit of a drag for me so I feel like I’m constantly running behind schedule.   No worries, I’m almost there — roll 48!   Woo hoo.…

Roll 47: Winter Skies

      I hit the road the other day with the Yashica Mat EM and a roll of Kodak Portra 120.   Nothing in particular struck me to photograph so I made a pitstop at a small park that has a even smaller but well-stocked trout pond.   I thought I might get a few…

Roll 43: The City of Trees, Sacramento, CA

For Thanksgiving, my family went to visit some friends in Sacramento, CA, and our hotel was near the capitol park which was booming with fall color.   It hadn’t occurred to me that the warmer climate would still be so full of leaves and color so I was happily surprised.   And, I forced my…

Roll 29: Lake Tahoe

By far, one of my most favorite photo subjects is Lake Tahoe.   I just live too close to this blue mecca to not be enamored with it.   For my entire life, it has never failed to awe me with beauty.    Even luckier for me, I have a few random work days that cause me…

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…

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…

Roll 10: Saint Paul’s Catholic Church, Winnemucca, NV

Have you ever been to Winnemucca, Nevada?   No worries, not too many people have stopped to visit and, if they have even know where Winnemucca is, they probably just drove through on their way to some other western destination.  I drove the 3 hour each way from my house to Winnemucca last weekend to…
