June 1997 – Paris & Marietta Some rolls of film are better than others. I recently scanned this roll of 120 black and white film. Taken with my Mamiya 220. I loved 120 2 1/4 x 2 1/4, medium format photography then and I love it now. I plan to make some silver prints … Continue reading Paris and Marietta – June 1997
What’s old is new again. Even though I have a pro 5D Canon digital I’ve been nostalgic for film. I’ve experimented with “Holga” 120 and the 35mm “black slim devil” in the past couple of years and decided to try out the “Sprocket rocket”, another “toy” 35mm camera that features the ability to expose the … Continue reading Entering into the world of hipster photography – first images from the Sprocket Rocket camera
I finally retired my Motorola cellphone camera – click here for my previous “Motofoto” posting. I decided I needed more than 65 awesome KBs of an image.

But sometimes the camera justs “knows” better and introduces a bit of spontaneity into a photo. Click on the images to view in my zenfolio site where you can purchase … Continue reading Unintentional Double Exposures
Happy late birthday to Charles Edward Anderson “Chuck” Berry (born October 18, 1926). This is a photo I took when I was 16 or so at the San Diego Civic Center’s Rock n Roll revival show circa 1970. Chuck Berry played with the Coasters, Bill Haley and the Comets and Bo Diddley who I would … Continue reading Happy (late) Birthday to Chuck Berry
This posting is a bit of a departure from the “photoblog” theme, but being the old ex-Art major that I am I’ll probably venture into non-photographic excursions from time to time. My sister in law has a good eye for art and a weakness for eBay. Fortunately for me! She shared some (ok a lot…thanks Melissa!) … Continue reading Tales of the Floating World – Kibyôshi
