Pinholeday Film Swap with Inge!


Two years ago when I visited Amsterdam to meet up with my Pinhole Obscura buddies on Pinholeday, we had a plan to bring along a roll of film to swap. Inge got the roll I brought. This past Pinholeday weekend, in Barcelona, she decided to re-shoot the roll! Here are the wonderful results!

Dispatches from a shy street photographer: Eye contact


Today’s image comes from Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Taken a few years ago. One of those rare moments when I made eye contact with a random stranger who happened to wander into my camera’s frame.


Geeky bits

Camera: Canon EOS 650
Film: Kodak Tri-x

Developed in Kodak D-76 for the standard time (I can’t remember what that is at the moment)

Me: I am taking a photo of the Twin Peaks Diner with a Holga. I feel so hipster.

Raf: That is High-Hipster.

This is my Holga GFN with a 35mm film adaptor.  It was fun to use but I didn’t love the results from it.

Below is the other shot from the entire roll of 36 exposures that I kinda liked. A shot of Snoqualamie Falls (also featured in Twin Peaks)

Cue Twin Peaks Theme



Photography, Random

Dispatches from a shy street photographer: sky walk, Barcelona


Here is another example of an accidental street photography shot. I was really  mostly interested in that ornate sky walk above the alley but when I looked at it later I really liked the human element in the photo.

Incidentally, that ornate sky walk was in a book I looked at last night about ball point pen sketching. So weird!

Geeky bits:

Camera: Olympus XA
Film: Fuji Acros 100
Stand developed in Adonal for 1 hour.
