So True!

I rode my bike up to Portland State University today to speak to someone in the Art dept. Alas, the office was closed for lunch, but I did see this cool stencil by an ashtray.


Oh, Minolta X-700, how I’ve missed thee…

It’s been about a year or more since I’ve employed my trusty manual SLR. After purchasing a used Cannon Rebel DSLR last summer, I almost forgot the joy of shooting with film. I love the anticipation, the waiting to see if anything on the roll is worth printing. I also really dig the act of composing and focusing a shot the “old fashioned” way. There’s no image-stabilization or auto-focus… it’s all very tactile and therefore rewarding when a shot turns out. Here are a couple of gems from my first “practice” roll. I’m taking a darkroom class in fall so I better get back in the swing of things.

Kind of cute, for a dog...

I don't see these three lovely women as often as I should!
