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:

Fuji Color Pro 400 | Canon AE-1 Program

Shot awhile back, these photos always pop when they run through my screen saver.

One roll of Fuji Color Pro 400 makes me no expert. In fact, one roll doesn’t even make me an occasional user. I’ve used it once. I liked the results and I should try it again.

A more complete review is here.

Here are some shots.

Silberra u400 | Rollei 35 S

OK. I have a new favorite film.

A few weeks back I ordered some Silberra u400 from the UK film powerhouse Analogue Wonderland. It’s a Russian film ordered by an American sent by a British company. I had no idea what I was getting.

The scans came back today and I was blown away by the shadows and contrast. Along with it’s near polar opposite (Ektar 100?) I’ll add this to my rotation.

I particularly liked how it rendered the reflections in the water.

Here are some shots.

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 Eight

August 3 to August 9, 2019

Some historic sites this week.

On Saturday I visited the Thorp School; build in 1936 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.

Monday, I was downtown and shot the Smith Tower from the base. The iconic landmark has been photographed thousands of times. I don’t recall seeing one from this angle.

The balance of the shots took advantage of Seattle’s sublime August light. With wildfire smoke the last two years marring our skyline and choking our lungs, this year has been a nice and welcome surprise.

Street Flyers 2

Watching for street art, especially the flyers, political notices, even community bulletins.

Kshama Sawant is a Socialist on the city council. You love her or hate her. No middle ground.

Seattle, Washington. Thursday, August 1, 2019. iPhone 8 Plus.

A bit of sleuthing, and I still have no idea what the izod alligator is doing here.

Fremont, Washington. Friday, August 8, 2019. Fuji x100f. Classic Chrome.

Nice color.

At some point, this had some message.
