The Armstrong

One of the oldest apartment buildings in Calgary, AB. I even went old school with this and shot it on film! With a borrowed Mamiya 7, how can you not love rangefinder cameras?

Lost in the Corn

Fall 2013 Film1-16

Another image shot on my Nikon FM for a film class.  I found this old tractor seemingly abandoned in between corn fields.  Such a shame for this classic to be wasting away in a field, as though it had been put out to pasture.

In June of 2012, Duluth experienced a rainstorm that was one of those “once in a hundred year” events.  My basement ended up with several inches of water which damaged some my photography equipment, including the telephoto for my Nikon FM film camera.  It had a fine coating of silt that would have cost more to repair that the lens was worth.  But, rather than throw it out, I decided to shoot a roll of film with it and see what would happen.  As you can see from the image, it adds a slight gauzy effect, making the scene sort of dreamlike.  Although I don’t shoot film as often as I used to, I plan to keep the lens in my bag and think of it under the right circumstances.

I still believe…

I still believe that film is the best medium for black and white. Maybe I’m a luddite. Ironically this was shot on my Leica M9P. However I still shoot film, although at the moment I have a big box in my freezer cozying up to some fish and a couple of frozen Haggises (Or should that be Haggai). I keep making plans to have a rummage it’s just I haven’t got around to it this past year. But never fear I will get around to it …some day :0)

It is a big big step for me ! And my dream is coming true…I have a black room (darkroom) in my house !   It is not a very good material but it is enough to make my heart beat stronger. My Camera is a Nikon F of 1959.  I am very very happy and proud to show you my first picture !

The Reader

Black And White Photography, David, Photography

The ReaderThe title should read “Never think you are finished for the day.”

The picture above, “The Reader” is an example of that. I’d spent the morning taking pictures while on a visit to the city of Bergen here in Norway. The weather was cloudy and it was raining, which will come as no surprise to people that live in Norway.

I’d kind of given up for the day after taking some lackluster shots while walking the streets. I was looking forward to lunch. We ended up at a restaurant famous for its Fish soup. While waiting for our order (It was lunchtime and the place was busy) I noticed a lady sitting by the window reading. The light was perfect. I slowly raised my Leica MP and shot off a couple of frames of Ilford XP2 between the shoulders of my friends sitting opposite me.

The result…well you can judge for yourselves.

So, as I said never think you are finished for the day 🙂
