Dispatches from a shy street photographer: user error


Today’s image is the last of my street photography series. I am not sure it even really qualifies as street photography. I shot two rolls through my Holga TLR in bulb mode and this is the one photo from those two rolls that I actually kind of like. It was shot in Portland. I like the Holga TLR for street photography and I will try this again. Hopefully with more attention to detail.

Dispatches from a shy street photographer – Post Alley


Here is a photo from Seattle. This is Post Alley, otherwise known as the Gum Wall. So yeah, on the walls on either side of thisĀ romantic-looking couple are layers and layers of germs and bacteria. (eww)

Pinholeday Film Swap with Jeff


I mentioned a few posts ago that one of the traditions that we have for our meetups on Pinholeday is to swap a roll of film with one of our friends for a film swap. This year I chose Jeff’s roll. I made my exposures, unwittingly, at the Chinese Garden when I was on a pinhole adventure with my friend Donna. I love how they came out though!

Dispatches from a shy street photographer: waiting

Shot with an Olympus XA.

Today’s image in this series comes from Amsterdam. I had a lot of fun randomly pointing my camera at things in that city.šŸ™‚ This was the first outing with my XA. In fact, my friend, Inge had just given to me when we met a few days before.

Dispatches from a shy street photographer: Man without a face


I spent a few short hours in Dublin and didn’t take many photos, and the ones that I did take didn’t come out very well, technically (theĀ roll had some development issues). However, it’s such an interesting placeĀ and there is so much going on. I am looking forward to returning and spending more time shooting the streets.
