Here are some more photos from the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. What I most remember about that day is that it was incredibly bright and I didn’t have a wide enough lens to capture everything I wanted in the frame.
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 are from a canoe trip and hike I took up to Widgeon Falls with my friend Barry.
These are Casablanca Lilies and they are a varietal of the oriental lily. A few months ago I decided that I wanted to try my hand at photographing flowers. I bought a bouquet of lilies at the supermarket, grabbed a vase and some decorative black rocks, and arranged them all together. Then I sat back […]
The night market in Xi’an’s Muslim Quarter is every street photographer’s dream. There is so much to see and experience. The entire street is lit up so bright that you can easily shoot with 100 ISO film even though it’s night. I could have spent the entire night snapping pictures had I brought more film […]
Sarah & I wandered down this street one afternoon in Chengdu and we discovered a shop where you could have your name carved in Chinese characters onto a stamp. We thought it would make a great memento of our trip and we bought a matching pair of stamps. I took these photos while we waited.
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 […]
Inspired by Katie’s Half-Frame Diary, I decided that I needed a half-frame camera myself. I love the look of two half-frames scanned together. The two images form a diptych and the juxtaposition offers a unique opportunity for photographic storytelling. It’s something that I’m eager to experiment with. I already own a Diana Mini, and while […]
Every summer, I try to attend as many interesting events as I can and bring along a camera. In the past, I’ve attended and photographed hot air ballooning, show jumping, live music, the Calgary Comic Expo, and the engine run-up on a WWII Lancaster bomber, to name a few. But since the pandemic started, I […]
Here are 4 more rolls from my Film on Film series. Today’s selection features rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 100 EPN, Holga B&W 400, Rollei Superpan 200, and Fuji Pro 160S. Eight years ago I managed to pick up 10 rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 100 EPN in 35mm and 7 rolls in 120. I’ve been pretty […]
I shot these photos of flowers outside Église Saint-Julien in the commune of Le Mesnil-Patry in Normandy, France.
These photos are from in and around Banff. The first two photos are of Cascade Ponds, just across the highway from Banff. Sarah and I met up with a friend here and spent an afternoon catching up. I ended up with a terrible sunburn.
I photographed these cows just outside Authie in Normandy. That big cow wasn’t too happy that I was photographing the calfs.
I shot these while wandering around Burnsland Cemetery when I was first experimenting with cross-processed film. I like some of the statues in Burnsland, but overall I don’t think it’s as picturesque as Union Cemetery, which is right across the street.
The name of this sculpture is Sliver. It was created by Virginia King and is a symbol of time. Sarah and I were walking in Newmarket (a suburb of Auckland) when we came upon the sculpture and I knew I had to photograph it.
