  2. No Comment

    27 Nov 2019

    My new self published book of Japan Photos taken on film .  This was from our October Trip to Japan.  I wanted a book that just showed photos without my stupid comments.  Only the last page has some text.  This was in addition to a book that I just completed…

  4. PreConceived Notion of Japanese Photography

    01 Nov 2019

    This reviewing of modern Japanese photography has been a real eye opener.  I thought of Japanese photography as being like Haiku. bonsai, meal prep in Japan - very nice, orderly, calm and non-confrontational.  Sort of like Hiroshi Sugimoto’s work seen below Instead I’m confronted with photographers like Araki and Daido…

  7. What you can do with a cheap camera and lens

    26 Sep 2019

    The premise was to get a cheap Nikon Film SLR and have it in our trailer all the time.  Then I just need to bring film and batteries.  I selected the Nikon EM because I just got it back from repair and needed to ensure that it was working.  I…


  8. Impossible Project

    23 Sep 2019

    I was invested in The Impossible Project early on but didn’t think the film was that great.  Just today with cleaning up I found my stash of photos taken with this film.  Not as negative as I once was.  


  9. Old Film/Old Cameras

    22 Sep 2019

    The surest way to fail in photography technically is to grab an old point and shoot that you’ve never used and put in 16 year expired film and go shooting.  You folks will just have to wait till I get the film back but his is exactly what I did…

  13. Bronica RF 645

    19 Aug 2019

    This is a rangefinder 645.  The lens is very sharp and it’s easy to use walking along a street.  It doesn’t have TTL metering so the exposures aren’t always perfect.  Here’s a sample of photos taken in the last two weeks


  14. Nikon 35i

    16 Aug 2019

    This is from Ken Rockwell’s review: “The Nikon 35Ti was a rich guy’s vacation camera. The model name means 35(mm lens) and Titanium covers. It cost about a grand ($1,000) when it came out in 1993.  The Nikon 35Ti is one of the very best non-SLR 35mm film…
