I’ve shared photos from this roll of Agfa CT Precisa 200 before (see When Expired Film Goes Bad), but at that time I did not know the cause of the spots. I thought it may have had something to do with the age of the film or poor storage conditions. I was partially right. I […]
The Canada goose is often considered a nuissance, probably because they can turn a beautiful grassy field into one covered with their excrement. On this day, they allowed me to photograph them relaxing in the morning sun.
This single photo is all that turned out on a 24-exposure roll of expired Kodak Max Versatility 400. It’s too bad because I was looking forward to seeing the photos I had taken while on a photo walk downtown last summer. I believe the other photos were lost, not because the film is expired — […]
I shot these photos at Fish Creek Park on the same day I shot similar photos on Ferrania Solaris FG 100 with my Canon EOS 3. It’s interesting to compare the two sets of photos as it really highlights what a good camera, lens, and film combo can do. (Hint: these are not the better […]
There are many damaged headstones throughout Union Cemetery. Sandstone was quite often used in Calgary in the early 20th century until they discovered it didn’t stand up to the climate very well. But this is the first (and only) time I have come across a wooden cross. The cross was broken in three pieces with […]
The Bow River often freezes over during winter. While it is not unusual to see geese on the ice, I wasn’t expecting to find an overturned shopping cart that looked like it had been thrown from the bridge.
Calgary’s Chinese Cemetery dates back to 1908 and is the burial site for many of the city’s early Chinese pioneers.
These photos of Calgary’s skyline were shot from Union Cemetery and are from the same roll as the last post’s photos.
I shot these photos at Union Cemetery 7 or 8 years ago when I decided to get back into film photography. I was exploring parts of the city I had never visited before and the cemetery fascinated me. As a result, I have way too many photos of Union Cemetery including photos of gravestones shot […]
The Superheadz Ikimono Flash 110 is a cute little camera. It’s too bad that the film advance on mine often fails to stop at the next frame and cock the shutter. It’s not uncommon for me to lose one or two frames each time I advance the film.
Buildings in Calgary: the National Music Centre, the Calgary Public Library, a parking garage, and old City Hall.
These are the last of my photos from the Bearspaw Classic Car Show and Shine. If you’re interested in seeing them, photos from the first set and second set have already been posted.
This is from a photo walk I took through Fish Creek Park the year after the 2013 flood. I went to see the damage from the flood once the park had re-opened and was deemed safe again for the public. I had a few cameras with me that day, but I only snapped this one […]
On the west side of the new Calgary Public Library building are two of three kinetic sculptures that move back and forth like a drinking birds. This art installation is called Trio and was designed and built by artist Christian Moeller.
These photos are from a photowalk I took recently around the East Village. This part of downtown has undergone a lot of redevelopment over the last few years and I thought it was time to take a camera and go exploring.
I shot these photos in Eau Claire (downtown Calgary) along the river. It’s pretty clear that my Kodak Six-20 Model C has some light leaks. I’m not sure where the leaks originated since I had the camera taped up and my examination of the bellows when I got the camera didn’t reveal any pin prick […]
As I was putting this post together, it occurred to me that I have never processed Fuji Velvia 100 normally. I have only ever cross-processed this film. As much as I like this look, fortunately, I have a few more rolls left and will have to develop the next one in E6 chemistry. These photos […]
These photos were shot on Kodak SO-554 200 film — a film I know almost nothing about. I came across this mysterious film one day while shopping online and quickly bought 3 rolls. All I can tell you is that the SO stands for ‘special order’ and the 554 is the order number. Kodak SO-554 […]
