Mt Hood Or Mars?

Photography

A few months ago I happened to be in Blue Moon Camera and Machine and decided to pick up some Lomochrome Turquoise. I wanted to save it for something special. When my husband and I decided to hit one of our favorite hiking trails on Mt Hood on a beautiful autumn day, I knew that was that day for the Lomochrome. So I loaded it up in my Zero 2000.

The results are crazy weird. I will post more of them over the month.

Pinholeday Film Swap with Jeff

Photography

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!

Today’s photo blog post is the result of a fun adventure from the end of last year. My husband and I stumbled upon a park we hadn’t seen before. As we walked around we found an abandoned school yard. We peeked through windows and this was the scene we witnessed through one of them! I happened to have my pinhole camera with me so of course I pinholed that. Since this was taken over Thanksgiving weekend I presumed it was the result of a haunted house. That’s what I’m telling myself anyway…

In May I am participating, with friends and fellow PNW pinhole photographers, in a show of our photography. This will take place in Seattle (more details soon). The show’s theme is “slowing the selfie.” So, as you can see, and as you can probably tell, I have selfies on my mind lately! I’ve been working really hard deciding on what I want to submit. This is my first real show. The process has been fun and interesting, and a little scary as well. 🙂

Here is a pinhole self portrait I took a few weeks ago. It’s always fun to see how these photos turn out when I scan them weeks later. For this photo, I like the way the iPhone headphone cord turned out.

Cultivating my supapowa*

Photography

Today’s photoblog image was taken during a Pinhole Mayhem outing in January. What a great day! We met in Downtown Portland and decided to do some pinhole street photography and selfies. It was perfect because it was sunny and beautiful. I will post more from that day when I have developed all of the film.

This particular photo was a group effort sort of thing. Gretchen or Donna (or both?) had something specific they were wanting to capture so while they were doing their thing I pinholed myself under the tree. Here is Gretchen’s shot from that set-up.
