I love to drive. Either going some place directly, or just for the sake of taking a new or different road to find something new to shoot. This particular trip was driving just for the sake of driving. And I found a lot of cool stuff to photograph along the way! This was the second week working with HC-110 under Dilution F, the grain is okay, I didn’t really see anything reducing it using a higher dilution. Maybe when I work with Dilution E and pulling the film in a later week, I’ll see better results.Read More →

I’m rather fond of Rochester, New York, and really it’s not that far of a drive for me, about two and a half hours. Now in the past I’ve usually taken the I-90 in, but really the Interstate is a bit boring so I decided to switch up my route a little this time and take NY-31 from Lewiston to Rochester. And what a great drive it was! Passed through several great little towns with that wonderful late 19th early 20th century downtown buildings just starting to wake up to their Saturday. Open farm fields, lots of things to look at along the way withRead More →

Established in 1917, Highway Two stretched across the entire length of Southern Ontario. From Windsor in the west to Cornwall in the east. Today much of the highway is now ‘downloaded’ to local municipal governments, but you can still drive much of the route, however the once over 800 kilometer long highway has been reduced to a small 1 kilometer length that is still signed as Highway 2. I had the day free to travel to Morrisburg for the 200th anniversary reenactment of the Battle of Crysler’s Farm (War of 1812) so I decided to take a chance and drive a part of his historicRead More →

Another “No Theme” week as the battery in my Nikon F3, which I put into it when I first got the camera a good four-five years ago now finally gave up the ghost and I’ve been having trouble getting a replacement. So I grabbed the next best camera that I could, my all mechanical Nikon FM2. Oddly enough the FM2 was the original choice for the project and from here on in will the camera of choice for the rest of the project (mostly because it only uses the battery for the meter, unlike the F3 which needs power to even release the shutter). TheRead More →

Week Nine and I chose not to have a theme, well two reasons, one I was sick (cold, much better now), and my original idea was squished because well I couldn’t do it as the training I was supposed to go to Toronto for was canned. So I just carried the camera with me through the whole week and took photos of what I thought was pleasing to me. Nikon F3 – AI-S Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4 – Kodak Tri-X 400 Dev: Kodak HC-110 Dil. B 4:30 @ 20CRead More →

Agh, I’ve been remiss on posting more from the Photostock Event back in June of this year and for that I apologize, but things went straight down the tubes after photostock and I’ve been running at a million kilometers per hour since, and still haven’t stopped. But anyways I’ll get some more photostock up here over this week. Anyways onto the actual content. The M119 is a unique roads, it’s clasified as a state highway but is far from it, a national historic senic route runs from just outside the village of Harbor Springs to Cross Village, at Photostock I took the oppurtunity to driveRead More →
