Diana F+ Pinhole Fun

An afternoon with friends, taking a stroll around West Hollywood during a recent Lomography pinhole workshop (really inexpensive by the way). Made for a fun afternoon. Next time I use a Diana pinhole, I'll attempt some better hand holding techniques!

I'd Like To Thank The Academy...

Just a quick post to say thank you to Jeff at the art of waiting, the impossible project and Anne Bowerman and Dave Bias for selecting my Polaroid diptych for The Art of Waiting "Autumn" instant theme contest. They're sending me 4 packs of the new PX600uv+ film! How cool is that? Needless to say I'm very happy about this.

Boba Fett and Flowers

My first few shots with Impossible's PZ600 film and a Polaroid Macro 5 SLR camera. I really like the quality of this film. It has nice subtle tones with pretty good darks and its really sharp as well (despite the out of focus Boba). I didn't use a light shield with any of these, but its indoors and with the built in flash. Pretty much flipped them over and left them alone for 5 minutes. The tone does seem to take a day or two to really set.

An Afternoon at Venice Beach & Abbot Kinney

I've lived in LA for about 10 years now and there are still so many areas that I have barely explored. This time around, my friend Julia and I went down to Abbot Kinney and Venice Beach (which is very close). Its a cool and funky area with lots of shops and places to grab good food and drink. Plenty of people watching as well as interesting things to photograph. Originally I had intended to try to get some people pictures and ended up not getting much in the way of people at all, more atmospheric. Venice Beach is always an interesting scene with many many different kinds of characters, performers and musicians. It was a bit overwhelming though, to much activity and people. I've decided that next time I'll need to really hang out for the day and people watch and just take my time. A revisit sometime over the Winter could be interesting.

I usually carry more then one plastic camera and in this case had both of my Holgas, Black Slim Devil and a Polaroid SX-70 Sonar.

A Summer afternoon around Abbot Kinney and Venice Beach during Labor day weekend. Its strange, I shot these images a little over a month ago and yet it feels like its been longer then that. Time, always messing with me...
