Week Eleven | August 30, 2019

First week back to work. Not many opportunities to stroll, hike or make intentional photography errands. Instead, I used the camera to help me see.

The first photos is of my Rollei 35 S. Three rolls of ektar 100 were shot in Sicily with it. I’m waiting for the results.

The remaining photos are all done with the x100f. All JPEGS with very little by way of editing. Three are from the same day.

Daily photo challenges, for me, become a drag on creativity and I leave too many results out. Weekly will allow me to have a few photos from the same day. So going forward I’ll be aiming to have 5 to six photos a week here.

Noto, Sicily | Fuji x100f

Our holiday in southeastern Sicily included a day trip to Noto, Modica and Ragusa. August is a hot time to be in the area and likely keeps the crowds away.

We hired a helpful driver and learned some Italian while being driven from town to town.

The pictures were shot with a Fuji X100F. All jpegs in Classic Chrome.

Street Flyers 3

Some Local. Some Sicily. Everywhere people advertise and make their marks.

The yellows really help The Decent Exposure tour get their message out.

Jet leg? Work?

I was too tired to pus the shutter button today.

Carkeek Park | Ektar 100 | Canon AE-1

Going through the archives and finding some work that I want to put here.

In 2016 I traded my Nikon DSLR for a Canon AE-1 Program and 50mm lens. Loaded up with Portra and Ektar and Tri-x, I began a slow return to photography that has only recently begun to accelerate.

Here are some of my first efforts with the Ektar 100. Carkeek Park makes a pretty compelling subject any season. But the fall to winter season and then winter to spring are my favorite periods.

Week Nine

August 9 to August 16, 2019

Travel to and the first week in Sicily produced many photographic opportunities. Four cameras, five counting the iPhone, and they all had great workouts.

Next week should be more of the same.
