blogging

Wow….I am not good at this. At least in the sense that I am not a daily, hell, even a weekly poster/blogger. I can come up with the usual excuses; it’s cold, I’m tired, I’ve got other responsibilities that are more important…..yeah, all real. So, this #we35 project is really pretty interesting. There are contributors all over, traveling, walking, living and all sharing their daily visions in 35mm for all the world to see. I’ve missed a lot of photos, but mainly because my 35mm prime is a manual focus lens. I was using a Tamaron 19-35mm and making sure it was on 35mm, but I wanted a prime. I’ve also been shooing some film with a Yashica Electro 35, a FED 3B, a Yashica 44 TLR and soon….wait for it……wait for it…..Yeah I bought a sweet Mamiya RB67!! Woohoo! I’ve got some film, a Polaroid back, two 120 backs, a 150mm SF lens, a 90mm lens and a prism viewfinder. I am looking forward to getting this out into the world and running a few rolls of film through it! Something about the all mechanical all manual function. The sounds, the feel (this camera with the prism viewfinder weighs about 6 or more lbs). I’ve also got a Kodak Tourist camera that might get some film as well. I love these old cameras, one day I hope to own a Nikon SP, all chrome….now that would be awesome. I’ve got a friend and fellow photog who recently purchased a Hasselblad 500C/M and we are both geeking out about the film. One day I might even develop my own because it is painful waiting for film to get back in ones hands!

I’ve also started building a new project site. It’s still in the “working” phase, so no content is being shared, but keep checking here http://garagesalephotos.com/     it’ll be up in a few weeks or a month or so.

At any rate (I say that too often) I hope this month is going well for everyone. BTW-All of these images were shot using a 35mm prime lens.
