Hipster

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

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!

Dispatches from a shy street photographer – Face

This is another one from Barcelona. This is a strange statue outside of the Palace of Catalan Music. It’s an optical illusion. When you walk around the structure it is actually flatter than it appears. For the life of me I can’t find any information on this, otherwise I’d link to it. I’m sure there is something written about it somewhere. My librarian super powers are eluding me at the moment.

Anyway, I really was trying to get a shot of the statue but the woman was sitting on it so I caught her too. I kind of liked the juxtaposition.

Dispatches from a shy street photographer – Busker

The next photo from this series comes from Barcelona’s Park Guell.  When I saw this guy playing the guitar I knew this was street photography material. I had to take a few versions of this. In one of them a woman backed ever so slightly out of the columns as she took a photo of her companion, hidden away somewhere.

Dispatches from a shy street photographer – Travelers

Today’s image is from Barcelona’s beautiful Parc de la Ciutadella, at the top of the park’s ornate fountain.

For some reason this photo reminds me of the film “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” – the scene at the end when all of the missing earthlings were walking off of the spacecraft, returned to Earth.

I am reminded about how I was totally and completely obsessed with that movie. Just totally obsessed. I have no idea why, but there was something about it that fascinated me. I really would love to watch it again, In an old theater if possible, for nostalgia’s sake. A pilgrimage to Devil’s Tower is something I need to do as well.
