Oh the bitter winds are coming in, And I’m already missing the summer. *

I missed posting last week, needed a little break from the Intertubes. But I am back in the saddle with another post from that Lomo Purple roll. This is one that that I shot at the Stonehenge Memorial when I was there. You can read more about my visit there on Pinhole Obscura.

This is completely off topic, but I have started another blog that is dedicated to my daily drawings. I’ve invited my friends to join me, as well. You can find it here: Gottasketchthatitch.com. I am completely new at this whole sketching thing (give or take) so please don’t laugh at my attempts :). I just feel like it’s good to get yourself out there and connect with others who are trying to accomplish the same things. Maybe we can support each other.

OK, back to the original topic, the photo:

Into the wild purple yonder

Into the wild purple yonder

Today’s photoblog image was taken near my house at the local park. I walk by this scene everyday and I’ve photographed it many times. I love the way the two Douglas Firs frame the entrance to the forested area behind them. I’ve actually taken this path many times, as well, and there is something kind of spooky about it. These two trees and this path feel like the beginning of an adventure to me.

13 seconds of bliss

13 seconds of bliss

It’s a new month and the perfect time to start a new focus for my photo blog. I’ll get back to self portraits at another time, perhaps. For now, here is a pinhole photo of daisies for you. I took this on a walk home from work in May. It is not often that I take a detour through the park, but I did on this day. And then I rested next to the creek while I made this photo. It was a relaxing 13 seconds.

This was shot with Lomo Purple. I am really liking this film the more I use it. I will share more Lomo Purple pinhole shots with you in later posts.

Today’s photoblog is a self portrait I took last month with the fabulous Terrapin Bijou using Lomo Purple film. I don’t know why, but I like this image. It kind of evokes a general feeling about work that I’ve been feeling these past few weeks. It’s not necessarily a bad feeling at all, just a tired feeling. I’ve been very busy getting ready for the Summer Reading Program and it’s exhausting. I have so many blog posts half written it’s not even funny. But there is always time for a photo post! And, apparently, there is time for a pinhole photo at work.

Ghosts in the forest

Today’s pinhole self portrait was taken the same day as this one – at Trillium Lake on Mt. Hood. It was my second outing with the Terrapin Bijou, a camera gifted to me from Todd Schlemmer, maker and creator of the camera, on WPPD. I have since gone through about 4 rolls of film in this camera. I love it and can’t recommend it enough. The 4.5 x 6 format is new to me but it didn’t take long for me to warm up to it. It doesn’t hurt that you can get 16 shots on a roll.

Expect to see lots more results from this camera on the blog!

Self At Hug Point

Self at Hug Point

Today’s photoblog image is another paper negative, taken a couple of weeks ago when I visited Hug Point on the Oregon Coast. This is an interesting place. I shot a lot of pinhole there and am hoping I can squeeze a Pinhole Obscura post out of my visit there.
