Forgot how awesome medium format can be.

Big pile of random spring/summer pics

2015-08-21-0001Moving and stuff kind of messed with my shooting/developing/scanning/posting mojo. So… here’s a bunch of stuff. Olympus XA shooting Ektar at box speed and Superia Xtra 800 rated at 400.

Mayor’s Cup

2015-08-17-0010I was a sucker and did a race before I was ready. A road race nonetheless. But hey, the barbecue afterwards was worth it. Olympus XA shooting Ektar 100.

Tony and the Photo Nerd

Making it ours.

_55A6080Someone should’ve warned us (me) what we (I) were getting into. Our awesome summer has been relegated to an awesome fall; but wait no, the work will never, ever end really. Welcome to homeownership us. Might as well take pictures.

We bought a house. It was used.

_DSF2938The best photo of the day doesn’t show the house much. See the flowers hanging on the window? They’re plastic. First to get thrown out. Taken by our realtor using the X-Pro1 and Jupiter 8 Soviet lens.

Dogs in the Snow. Chair.

Midwest Holidays 2014

2015-03-23-0005Just scanned more holiday negatives. Good weather for a trip to the Middle. Ran the loop at Geode State Park in Iowa, visited the site of the Snake Alley Criterium, unleashed the dogs at the in-laws’ yard in Illinois. Hipster set-up: Lomography Sprocket Rocket loaded with Lomography branded 800 speed film.

Fat-Ass Trail Half

_55A5594Since I couldn’t do the Granogue 10k due to injury, I was able to hang out at the local club’s half-marathon. Great day for a race—warm and the snow was heavy—wish I could run.

Last Spring at the Lavender Trail

2015-03-02-0003It took almost a year to get this roll processed and scanned. A nice reminder of what we have to look forward to after this miserable icy winter. Mamiya m645 1000s shooting Portra 400.

Fair Hill Cross

Scan-141112-0009My wife got me a Sprocket Rocket for our anniversary. It’s a blast to let loose with. It might work better using color with tighter framing. I used Tri-X at box speed. Unfortunately my Xtol was stale and I had to salvage these from extremely thin negatives.

Carving Pumpkins

_DSF2838My first attempt at carving pumpkins. Mine are thems littlest guys near the right.

_DSF2846

Yeah so this happened…

_55A4893Poor guy was trying to stay dry between the screen and the storm window. Never would’ve known—he was covered by curtains—if it wasn’t for Christopher’s growling. Canon 5D Mark III.
