roll 49- books

I run by the motto “you can never have too many books” or shoes, for that matter. Luckily, at home, we have many places to house both although I think some may have to find new homes. I grew up surrounded by books and I still prefer the feel, smell and sight of a printed…

Roll 37 -Camping at a haunted lake

For roll 37 I took my pinhole camera camping with me. We went to Little Crater Lake, which is a small (and deep) lake on Mt Hood. It was on a Sunday night and we had the entire campground to ourselves, which was kind of creepy. There are stories about the lake being haunted. According…

Roll 28 – Velvia and my Zero 45

When we took our trip to the Oregon coast I thought I would try shooting Velvia 50 in my pinhole camera and not cross process. I had never tried shooting slide film for it’s intended purpose. So I thought I’d give it a shot. Almost the entire roll was shot on the docks of Newport…

Roll 13 – roll back

When I bought my Zero 45 and posted the photo of it on Facebook Mr. Espressobuzz told me to go out and get a 120 rollback  for it. I knew I was going to get one eventually but it turns out eventually was faster than I thought. I bid on a Graflex “23” Graphic 120…
