another (mostly) street post

Time for a new blog. I’ve been shooting a decent amount lately. The Pentax doesn’t even fail me in the freezing cold. I love that cheap little camera.

Hunter and I purchased two round-trip tickets to Nicaragua. We’re spending the second week in March there. A friend of ours is in Peace Corps in Nagarote. There should be a ton of great photo opportunities there. I’m really excited.

I got back my first two rolls of 120 from the lab and both had overlapped frames. It’s strange, because the first few frames are okay, but then as the roll advances the frames get closer and closer together. I’m not quite sure how to approach this problem. I loaded it as tightly as I could, while rocking the lever back and forth instead of advancing it fully, and I still have overlap. Makes me think it’s an issue with the camera instead of my loading it. Anyway, it’s really frustrating. I’ll have to do some research.

Some 35mm scans, until then. 🙂

First, some Tri-X:
(Pentax k1000, 50mm)

Random Santa hanging from a rusty twisted wire in the middle of a deserted valley. Definitely making prints for next holiday season, dust and all.

Some fine, open-minded folks from the Westboro Baptist Church. I’ve never seen them around Philly before. It was nicer that way.

I love this girl!

Now some Pan F 50…

These girls were pissed at first when they saw me taking their photo, but after I told them I just liked the scene, they posed for another shot (which I never took).

I took this at Robin’s Books, Philly’s oldest bookstore, which is closing its doors. A pity.

I was really into shadows that day, since the light was awesome.

Without fail, every roll that I get back from the lab has at least one frame with one of my fingers in front of the lens.

Rittenhouse Square.

Lastly, a few frames of Delta 3200.

  1. Enjoyable ones!


    Love this one. It’s pretty difficult to get away from cliches when it comes to shadows but I thought you got some decent shapes there. 🙂
