  • By the edge of the bay
    I walked down to the Irondequoit Bay outlet one day last week. These three are looking south from the north end of the bay. The bridge in the distance was completed in 1969. I have been over and under it many times. Two different worlds.
  • Flood pump
    The Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay water levels are high, but nearly as high as it has been. Hopefully the pump can sit idle this season.
  • Neighborly light
    As is my practice, I saved the last frame for home. The afternoon light was bouncing off something bright on the other side of the neighbor’s fence. I decided to try to capture it.
  • Marge’s Lakeside Inn
    Marge’s is a popular watering hole, especially in the summertime when her guests like to walk around the beach in their bare feet.
  • Once a road
    I walked down to the Irondequoit Bay outlet a few days ago. For part of the way I walked along the bluff with its old road markers. There were flowers everywhere.
  • Overlapped Frames
    It is remarkably easy to find the Weltur film advance knob when reaching for the focus knob. There is, unfortunately, no way to wind the film back outside of a black bag.
  • A Tulip for the Ascension
    The last frame on the roll of sixteen is a photograph of a solitary tulip in front of our house. It seemed an appropriate post for today, not so much for the direct symbolism as for the questions it raises.
  • Still waters
    Took the Welta Weltur out last week for the first time in nearly four years. It was a dreary sort of afternoon in Durand Eastman Park, but still lovely.
  • It seemed like a good idea at the time
    This was a test roll to see how the old camera was doing and how it responded to different lighting situations. I took several photographs of this tree from the various sides and got rather different photographs.
  • Evening ghosts
    Durand Eastman Park. Took the Welta Weltur out last Wednesday for the first time in nearly four years.
  • Welta at the top of the hill
    Durand Eastman Park. Took the Welta Weltur out last Wednesday for the first time in nearly four years.
  • Flowers in the park
    I shot a roll of Portra 400 down in Durand Eastman Park with the Yashica-D. The flowers were out in force.
  • Late afternoon by the lake
    Eastman Lake in Durand Eastman Park, a week ago or so. Last frame on the roll of twelve. It was a beautiful day with the clouds rolling in and out.
  • The cycle of nature
    The lake reclaims what once it nourished.
  • The mystery light
    I keep telling myself I won’t do it next time, but I keep discovering that I put a camera away with a roll of film with a couple exposures on it.
  • Old leaves and new tulips
    I shot a roll of Portra 400 down in the park with the Yashica-D last Tuesday. I saved the last frame for when I got home.
  • Sunshine there and here
    Took the Yashica-D out walking on Sunday afternoon. We actually broke 70F in Rochester. It was a promise that Spring will get here eventually.
  • Out on the course
    The golfers were thoroughly enjoying the weather, and generally maintaining good social distancing.
  • Up the hill in the sunshine
    Took the Yashica-D out walking on Sunday afternoon. We actually broke 70oF in Rochester. It was a promise that Spring will get here eventually. Yashica-D Ilford HP5+ Epson Perfection V500 Photo scanner
  • Little tree out back
    Last of the Holga pinhole set. I wanted to see whether I could catch the way the little tree glowed with the sun shining through it. #Holga120PC #holga #pinhole #pinholecamera#IlfordHP5Plus#ilfordphoto #epsonv500
  • Me, by Holga
    What happens when you turn a photographer loose with a plastic camera. #Holga120PC #holga #pinhole #pinholecamera#IlfordHP5Plus#ilfordphoto #epsonv500
  • Gray brick pathway
    My wife is landscaper in chief. I just take the pictures (and do the laundry). #Holga120PC #holga #pinhole #pinholecamera#IlfordHP5Plus#ilfordphoto #epsonv500
  • Neighborly shadows
    Stepped into the neighbor’s yard to catch the shadows on their house. They are getting a print, of course. #Holga120PC #holga #pinhole #pinholecamera#IlfordHP5Plus#ilfordphoto #epsonv500
  • Blue sky above
    Last Tuesday, as I remember. It was a beautiful afternoon. I pointed the Holga straight up. The dark corner is the peak of the garage roof. #Holga120PC #holga #pinhole #pinholecamera#IlfordHP5Plus#ilfordphoto #epsonv500
  • Pilates via Zoom
    My wife and I did Pilates via Zoom on Monday. It works. We will all three of us be glad to be back in the studio. Holga 120PCIlford HP5 PlusEpson Perfection V500 scanner
  • Green Hedgehog
    He was sitting on my window sill. A photograph was demanded. He(?) seems to like the desk lamp. Holga 120PCIlford HP5 PlusEpson Perfection V500 scanner
  • WPPD Owls and Friends
    I pulled out the Holga 120PC last Sunday for World Pinhole Photography Day. I discovered that it had a roll of film in it, apparently freshly loaded. It was raining steadily outside so I took a half-hour exposure of the See No Evil owls. It seems the first frame had been exposed at The Hungerford […]
  • Golf course path
    Durand Eastman Park has a lovely public golf course nestled in the valleys. The day had turned decidedly cloudy but it was still lovely walking in the park. Last post from this roll. Ondu 135 Pinhole with amber filterIlford HP5+Epson Perfection V500
  • Another one down
    Along Durand Lake in Durand Eastman Park. About ten paces from where I took “Bowed down” and looking in the opposite direction. Ondu 135 Pinhole with amber filterIlford HP5+Epson Perfection V500
