Week 9: A weekend in Duisburg

In week 9 I was a little under the weather. That’s why I wanted to go away for the weekend; I was wondering if a change of scenery would be the cure to my winter blues. I ended up booking a hotel in Duisburg, Germany. My husband and I had been there before. It’s within…

Wk 6&7 (2017): Misfire

One of my favorite B&W films from last year’s 52 rolls was Fujifilm Neopan 100 Acros. I loved the tonal range in other people’s photographs.

There is a limited amount of that awful ‘photographic art’ at the festival (think BJP cover with a skinny, ill looking woman…
