  1. Hiroshi Sugimoto Jekyl and Hyde

    12 Aug 2021

    There’s a great NY Times article about one of my favorite photographers.  Talks about aspects of his art that I never knew about.   This is an example of his ground breaking photography and is instantly identifiable as a Sugimoto - no one has dared copy his style because it’s so…

  2. Rollei RPX 25

    07 Feb 2021

    I’ve learned to not be afraid of shooting outdated Black and White film - it works out fine.  No adjustments in ISO or development times.  This is NOT true of color film especially E-6 slide film.  Anyway I found an 8 year old roll of Rollei RPX 25 and shot…

  3. Daily Photography Habits

    07 Nov 2020

    Every morning, now that I’m retired, I am up by 6:30 am thanks to my dog Arbus.  Let the hounds out, take my pills and start the coffee. Then with coffee in hand I start the computer.  The photo websites that I check in with include The Online Photographer. Contemplative…

  4. Fatal case of G.A.S.

    20 Feb 2020

    G.A.S. is Gear Acquisition Syndrome - for many like me it ain’t a syndrome but a dang disease!  I made the acquaintance of someone on Instagram who goes by the name “girlwithtoomanycameras” with 40.  I happened to do camera inventory yesterday because it was cold and snowy out.  To my…

  5. Prairie Madness is Published

    19 Feb 2020

    Prairie Madness is now out for publication by Without trying, I have slowly been doing a project about prairie photography.  I am generally not a ‘project’ photographer being distracted all the time.  But if you take enough subject based photos you end up with a project.  I have been…

  8. Crappy Camera + Ages Old Film =

    04 Jan 2020

    What do you get with a crappy camera from ? the 1980’s and Film that is at least 16 years old?  Well I’m here to show you - not very much is the brief answer.  The claim to fame for this camera is the large viewfinder.  Unfortunately this does not…

  10. Canon AE1 with Tri-X

    01 Jan 2020

    The obligatory test roll when you get a new camera.  For me this was a new to me Canon AE1.  This was my first SLR.  My father went out and he bought two of ‘em - one for me and one for him.  They are cheap to buy and the…

  11. Fuji Acros II first roll

    17 Dec 2019

    Fujifilm announced a ways back that they were re-introducing Acros as Across II.  It is claimed that it’s the finest grain ISO 100 film out there.  I had not shot much of it all when it was discontinued.  Mystical thinking has always led me to try new cameras and/or film…

  14. 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…

    01 Nov 2019

    More of my Japan photos such as they are.

  16. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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.  

  21. 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…

  25. 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
