I believe that we don’t give enough consideration to photographing flowers in black and white. Last year I ventured into the garden with my Minolta XD-11 and ILFORD’s HP5 PLUS. Recently, HP5 has become my ‘go-to’ 35 mm B&W film after my experiences of the past 2 years. I was also pushed by the Frugal […]
I set out this Spring and Summer to do a comparative test of Kodak EKTACHROME E100 and Fujifilm Fujichrome Velvia 50 (RVP50). In my lifetime experience with film (going back to childhood), I’ve mostly shot slide film, and we had those traditional slide shows with Family and Friends because my mother used the original EKTACHROME from […]
A 35 mm roll of Yodica Polaris ISO 400 film arrived in my life as a part of EMULSIVEsanta19. I had discussed in a previous posting on special effect films that I was not a great fan of them. But when you receive a gift you should go out and try it. And So I did. I […]

Three goals in mind: Work with my RSS using a contrast filter (the “F” means a filter can be attached)Satisfy the Story part of the ChallengeGet started on “My Inner Monet” So more about the Challenge.

Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 is definitely an interesting film. Until shooting it in late 2019, I had never tried a ‘special effects’ film before and surprisingly, I liked it. But there are some caveats that never seem to be mentioned in Lomography’s posts and promotions. This is not so much intended as a film […]
The Great Kiva was reconstructed in 1934 by Hopi and Puebloan workers. This site was part of the extended Chaco Canyon regional cluster of settlements and is part of the Chaco Culture National Historic Park. The Aztec Ruins* became a National Monument in 1923, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1966, […]
Here is an introduction to a local festival that may surprise you! And a camera that I have not mentioned before, although it is featured in my contributor’s portrait: My Fuji GA645Zi.
On August 21, 2017, thousands of people converged on Alliance, Nebraska, as one of the prime Solar Eclipse viewing locations in North America.
I asked my self this question very recently: can one photo make a difference?
