I seldom use my digital cameras anymore. Once I got back into film, especially medium format, my Canon 5D MkII collects dust. I did get a mirror-less Sony camera and if I am reaching for a digital camera it’s usually that one because it is so much smaller and lighter to carry. But yesterday I decided to just step out my front door and take some garden photos with my Canon and the 100mm lens.
Since I am sidelined this summer from hikes and long walks I have to do most of my photography within close proximity of my car. I enjoy road trips so I have been able to get out a bit, but am looking forward to my foot healing and getting back out doing long walks in the woods.
In the mean time here are some photos I made from the Washington side of the Columbia River. These were taken with my Hasselblad 500CM camera and Ilford film. I developed the film at home in Ilfosol 3.
I knew I had used my pinhole camera in October when I visited London for 6 1/2 weeks, but I couldn’t find my exposed rolls. Yesterday I finally found 7 rolls of film to develop. I’m halfway through the process and this morning I scanned some of the images I made.

Most of us who live in Oregon know the story of the Peter Iredale. It sailed from Liverpool and ran aground off the Oregon coast in 1906. Over the decades it has slowly been rusting into the ocean, but it is still a tourist attraction.
My husband found and bought three carriages of old slides while rummaging around an antique store in McMinnville. Two slides were of the Peter Iredale, one from 1906 soon after it was beached and the other from 1967.

I am sorry I have been absent from my blog, but I am recuperating on crutches and haven’t been able to get out with a camera in months. Might be time to hit the archives.
Just wanted to share some more pinhole images celebrating the week after Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day.
