2017, Roll 12 – Photographing Mikey’s Citroën

A couple of Sundays ago, I was lucky enough to be invited by Iain to take pictures of our mutual friend Mikey‘s classic Citroën DS. Mikey takes his beautiful car out once a month or so through the winter and the plan was for us to make some pictures of it in darkness, lit by LED streetlights…

Week 14: A Day of Firsts

My first pack of Impossible Project Film shot with my new SLR670-S which takes both ISO 100 and 600 film, a combination SX-70 and SLR680.  I had never shot instant film before so in the spirit of “it’s film what’s not to love” attitude I went out on a warm (for winter), sunny day to give it a try.…

Mamiya Universal Instax

52 Rolls Week 6:52

This week we take a mid-winter walk along Boulder Creek near the Walden Ponds.    Now I need to qualify the use of ‘Walden Ponds” as this is not Thoreau’s famous location, but a series of flooded gravel pits.  Despite their ‘unromantic’ origins, these ponds provide a welcoming habitat for migrating birds.  We’ll visit the ponds…
