27 / 52 weeks

Took a ride down to Beavertail,Jamestown,RI. When I got there it was raining, one day off and rain?!? I decided to wait it out and i’m glad I did. Sun came out and was really windy, But nothing gonna stop a Hassey and a roll ,of probably now my favorite,Neopan Acros100. Did some more playing…

Week 17: Strolling at Sunset

Taking a chance or two and trying new things are what make photography interesting. Taking lots of chances and throwing caution to the wind makes it even more exciting. My wife Cheryl and I do this quite regularly when going out shooting with old cameras that we’ve found and cleaned up a bit but which…
