Week 22 | November 9 – 15, 2019

A week of photographic riches. College campuses (tours), late fall colors, sun, fog, rain…a bit of everything.

I have separate themed posts already posted or in the queue. Even with that, I had trouble culling down to these few.

Here they are:

Reed College, Portland, Oregon. November 9, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R
Salem, Oregon. November 10, 2019. Fuji x100f.

Willamette University, Salem, Oregon. November 11, 2019. Fuji x100f
Ballard, Washington. November 14, 2019. Fuji x100f. Monochrome-R.
Ballard, Washington. November 14, 2019. Fuji x100f. Monochrome-R.

Week 21 | November 2 – 8, 2019

Sun this week. Warm? Warmer maybe. But the turning of the clocks back has pushed us into the darkness. This is where the drive to shoot starts to wane. Fall colors are still about, just not as abundant. Soon the rains will come.

Here’s some from the past week:

Nordic Heritage Museum. Ballard, Washington. November 3, 2019. Fuji x100f. Astia.
Ballard, Washington. November 3, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.

Fremont, Washington. November 7, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.
Fremont, Washington. November 7, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.
Seattle, Washington. November 7, 2019. Fuji x100f. iPhone 8 Plus.

Week 20 | October 26 – November 1, 2019

Film, digital, black and white, color, country: this week had a bit of everything.

It’s been cold and clear. More winter than fall. Wondering when the rain will start. Maybe this weekend when the clocks fall back and we get that extra hour…in exchange for the plunge into darkness.

Had a hard time picking photos for this week. Here they are:

Evergreen Washelli Cemetery, Seattle, Washington. October, 2019. Rollei 35 S. Ektar 100.
Seattle, Washington. October 2019. Rollei 35 S. Ektar 100.

Norse Home. Seattle, Washington. October 2019. Fuji x100f. Astia.
Woodland Park. Seattle, Washington. October 2019. Fuji x100f. Astia.

Week 19 | October 19 – 25, 2019

No film this week. Some Astia jpgs with the x100f and even an edited iPhone pick.

I struggle with the color on the x100f. I wrestle with shooting RAW and using vsco presets. But I don’t want to get bogged down with more choices, more technology.

Anyway, here’s some shots from the past week:

Loyal Heights, Washington. October 19, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.
Fremont, Washington. October 24, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.

Memorial Stadium, Seattle, Washington. October 25, 2019. Fuji x100f. Astia.

Week 18 | October 12 to 18, 2019

With ballots dropping next week, political fires are are heating up. Yes, impeachment inquiries and pre-primary presidential debates are rising levels of sturm und drang in our national press but it is the local races where the trench warfare occurs. After all, all politics are local.

This week the photos all come from the same day (October 13th) and camera (Fuji x100f). Not from a lack of photos, I had a roll of Ilford Delta 400 scanned and returned. Several iPhone photos worked out well. It was just that these photos stood out for me. The tones, lighting and composition came out pretty well.

All my photos are jpegs. Minimal edits. Sometimes a crop (often to a square).

Week 17 | October 5 to 11, 2019

A bitter cold front moved through early in the week; almost like we were going to skip fall.

The Magnolia Library photo is one of a series I took after discovering the excellent architecture library at Society of Architecture Historians.

Fremont is a common and often photographed area for me. As e with Green Lake.

Week 16 | September 29 – October 4, 2019

More film this week. Many more shots with the Rollei 35 and the Canon AE-1 than with the Fuji x100f. I’m waiting for the Cinestill x-pro 50 scans to arrive in my inbox.

I also picked up some zines. Four from Conspiracy of Cartographers arrived and a few others are on order. Ordered some esoteric film from Analogue Wonderland

Here are a few shots from the past week.
