Last summer, Sarah and I decided to rollerblade the Stanley Park Seawall while we were in Vancouver visiting family.
Last summer, Sarah & I rented some mountain bikes and rode along the Kettle Valley Railway in Myra Canyon near Kelowna, BC. I took many photos that day and these are the few I shot with my Lomography La Sardina Splendour camera.
This is the pier at Jericho Beach. It may look like typical Vancouver cloudy weather, but that is in fact smoke from the BC forest fires last summer.
Sarah and I are getting married today. We met two years ago while travelling and have been inseparable ever since. I love her dearly and am happy to spend the rest of my life with her.
Still more photos from my trip to Elbow Falls with Sarah. These were shot on expired (and no longer available) Lomography Redscale 100. Its replacement is the much improved Lomography Redscale XR 50-200.
I shot this self-portrait with my Diana F+. At the time, I didn’t realize that I had forgotten to remove the Instax insert lens and so that’s why this photo is the way it is. There’s more from this roll of film if you’re interested.
I shot these at Lake Louise one winter with my then new Diana F+. I had been shooting Instax Mini with the Diana F+ and forgot to remove the little insert lens that makes the Instant Back work before loading 120 film. You can see it in the photos. It’s the oddly shaped black frame […]
Back in January, I decided to take on a 52 Week Photography Challenge. Since I shoot film, it’s difficult to have the photos from each week of the Challenge processed in time to have them posted in the corresponding week. So I have to post my photos late. Week 1’s challenge was to take a […]
These are the first few photos from my Diana Mini. I got my Diana Mini for free from Lomography for spending $100 on film (so it wasn’t really free). I quite like this little camera and am pleased with the results. Nearly every photo I took with this camera over Christmas was in focus and […]
Whenever I’m back home on the coast, I try to sneak in a hike or two while visiting family. These were taken during a hike through Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. I like to hike a few of the lesser used trails (fewer tourists) and my favourite leads to Starboat Cove. I snapped these with […]
When I was in France this summer, I took along a roll of Lomography’s LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400 35mm film. LomoChrome Turquoise is modelled after Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple film which in turn is modelled after Kodak Aerochrome (this post by The Phoblographer explains it all). LomoChrome Turquoise produces some wild color shifts, but it isn’t […]
I own a 35mm back for my Holga 120 CFN, so one day I loaded it up with some Lomography Slide/X-Pro 200 ISO film and headed to Burnsland Cemetery. Unfortunately, I had a little mishap while I was taking photos. The back cover fell off my Holga and completely exposed the film. I tried my […]
Sad news this week: the Holga has been discontinued. They won’t be making this iconic camera anymore. Some are happy to see its demise, but they are missing the point. The Holga is beloved because of its light leaks and vignetting. It’s not a DSLR. It’s a plastic toy camera. You can do things with […]
I had originally shot these for Holga Week, but never got around to developing the roll in time. These were shot in Calgary’s Central Memorial Park on a roll of expired Lomography Lady Grey B&W 400 film. The park honours all those who served for Canada in various wars. I thought I would share these […]
One of my favourite places to shoot photos is in Union Cemetery. I love the rolling hills, trees and the view of the city. The cemetery is filled with history as well as many deteriorating headstones made from sandstone. Sandstone is very soft and does not withstand weathering over time. I shot these with a […]
Here are another two photos from Ralph Klein Park shot with my Superheadz Ultra Wide & Slim. When I got this roll back from the lab, I discovered some weird double exposures on the film. I have no idea how it happened except that it must have already been present on the film when I […]
I had heard so much about the Ultra Wide & Slim (UWS) that when I bought one I was both excited and disappointed. Vivitar made the original Ultra Wide & Slim camera that rose to cult status. Superheadz from Japan makes clones in many different colours. But just because they are clones doesn’t mean that […]
These are from my very first roll of 120 film shot with a Holga 120 CFN. First I watched a YouTube video on how to load a Holga, then I painstakingly loaded my Holga with a roll of Lomography Color 400 film, taped up the body of the Holga to prevent light leaks, and headed […]
I purchased a La Sardina Splendour camera online from Lomography and while I love the look of the camera, I struggled to take photos with it this day. At one point, the back of the camera popped off and two shots were overexposed! *sigh* I learned that you really need to commit to one camera […]
