Getting back

I’ve been away from blogging here, on 52 rolls and on Flickr for over a month. I just felt I needed a break. I think many of us can admit, the computer takes up a lot of our time. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t take a break from making photos but just from my computer. Now I have a back log of film to develop, scan and edit. To get a little caught up and into November I thought I would just review my month of October.

The month started with leaves falling off the trees before they had a chance to change color.

I made a couple of trips to the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island.

I had a pinhole meet up with Donna and Monica.

I tried out the Holga 3-D camera and I’d have to say i had mixed results using Velvia film. I plan to practice more. I also need to get them formatted properly so they sit side by side here. I think you get the idea: a new project to master.

I went to the University of Oregon campus to visit the daughter of a good friend. (I also graduated from the U of O)

I walked around some neighborhoods and made some Holga pix in St Johns.

The month ended with me making two quilts for Christmas.

I also made time for a few lunches and coffee dates with friends which means the pinhole camera goes on the table.

I know I did a lot more, like going for walks and back-road drives, but some of the film still needs developing and I will share when it all gets done. All the above photos were taken with various film cameras.
