VISION: Photography, Visual Arts

I've been slacking off on actually taking pictures, especially with my film cameras; there's a box of 30 or so rolls of undeveloped film sitting in an industrial metal cabinet in my house. I used the cabinet for a beside table for a while, but I decided it was ugly there and didn't want to fall out of bed and hit my head on the sharp metal corner of an ugly metal cabinet.

These days I take most of my pictures with a broken Canon Powershot A1000 (It has red tape over the battery door! Who thought to make the battery door latch out of crappy plastic?) or a Sony DSC-HX5V that I gave a Powershot-themed makeover (It has red *paint* over the battery door! This one is metal; no tape required.)

I wanted to open with an interesting one, so here's my dad, somewhere in northern California. I took this with a Mamiya Six Automat II on some B&W film. That camera is awesome but the bellows are old and cracked and so it has light leaks like nothing else.

Oceanside somewhere. Taken on Mamiya Universal Press Camera: it weighs 5 pounds but takes awesome pictures :)


Here's a photo I took the other day, walking Portland's NW Skyline Blvd with Jasmine.

This one reminds me of American Gothic a little bit. I liked the weird, flat little tree.

Others from the same walk:
