Here is something a little different: A non-pinhole photo! I recently bought an Olympus OM1 and it has become my favorite SLR. I will write a blog post about it soon, but for now here is a quick photo I took last month up at Mt. Tabor in Portland.
Geeky photo bits:
Camera: Olympus OM1
Lens: Standard 50mm lens that comes with these cameras
Film: Adox Silvermax 100
Develop: Adonal stand developed

I am determined to post something on this blog 3 times a week, dammit. I was tempted not to today because I am feeling blah and cranky and irritable and I have nothing interesting to say. But then I remembered Flickr Time Machine. YES!
Here is a photo from this day (January 28) in 2008. That was 7 years ago. SEVEN YEARS AGO. Where has the time gone? I was in Capitola, CA, visiting my in-laws and was watching the sunset with Rafael. Oh how I wish I was in Capitola right now. If I remember right, we returned to an unbelievable amount of snow and at the tail end of The Storm Of The Century.
Here are some more photos from that day.
Here we have another found negative. This time slide film. I am not sure what kind of film was used – it doesn’t say anywhere on the frame. The frame does say that it was processed at Identicolor Laboratory in N. Hollywood, California. The date is very faintly pressed into the slide frame and I can only identify the year: 1967.
Only with pinhole photography can you get these fantastic swirly colorful sunbeams. I love them so very very much. Someday, if I am lucky, I may even burn a black dot right in the middle of the sun. Someday.
Camera: Zero 2000
Exposure: 3 minutes.
