Alaska... finally

Been sitting on these awhile, taken in the late spring in the Tordrillo Mountains AK. The first two were the tail end of a roll of Lomochrome purple, and the third is regular C41 colour film. Had some scanner issues so I was hesitant to work/post these, but I guess they aren't so bad. I really like the way the purples turned out for mountain/snow landscapes. Thanks Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, hope to be back someday.

Kamloops viewpoint

Kamloops Lake viewpoint 2 ways.
Noblex with Regular C41 vs Horizon with Lomochrome Purple.
Taken on the same photo drive as the Spences Bridge Church. Camera test / film test pt.2

Spences Bridge BC

The old church at Spences Bridge 2 ways. Same same, but different. A little closer on the noblex.
This was actually a camera test of a noblex 135 that I bought on craigslist, and a film test of Lomochrome purple in my Horizon Perfekt. The horizon makes a negative 24x58mm and the Noblex makes 24x66mm on 35mm film.

La Habana Vieja, Cuba

This was a late afternoon stroll through the skinny streets of old Havana. Wish the light was better.  LCA+ / color implosion.

Plaza De La Revolucion

The giant Fidel, Che, and Teatro Nacional de Cuba taken from Revolution Square. Typical touristy shots, but shorter and wider. Havana, Cuba. Horizon.

La Habana, Cuba 2014

I recently got walk around Havana Cuba for a few days. It is hard to do justice to this wonderfully run down city with photographs. The colours, the buildings, and the people. I shot hundreds of pictures in the 3 days we stayed there. These are a few of the good panoramics. Horizon.

Spotted Lake again?

I was never happy with my previous photos of this lake. You couldn't see the spots, or the light was too flat, or I would have rather shot it with a panorama camera. 
I stopped here again en route to Oliver BC this fall. Panoramics really are my favourite. Horizon.

Twentyfour Mile Lake BC

One end of a giant tailings pond at Twentyfour Mile Lake, between Logan Lake and Ashcroft BC. If you look closely you can see bulldozers and excavators working on this end of the banks. The lake itself is like the surface of another planet, the far end of the lake is the Highland Valley copper mine.

Near Nanaimo

There are 5 or 6 of these old cars rotting in the woods near a small lake on Vancouver Island. My family took me out there because they thought I might want to shoot it. Thanks fam! Minor overlaps. Horizon.

Big Success

An abandoned car dealership that I drive by all of the time. It has a really cool shape and the windows are usually covered in posters. This time I stopped to take a few pictures. Horizon.

Silver and Light party, Vancouver BC.

I was lucky enough to meet Ian Ruhter, Will Eichelberger, Lane Power and Madeline Druce when they brought the Silver and Light project to Vancouver this past spring. This was an exhibition held in their rental house, to display the gigantic wet plate photos they took while in Vancouver. Pretty inspiring stuff.
Sorry the flare burned out your face from the backlight, Ian. I needed a bounce or something.
I had one more with a little more face detail, but the double art/ double Dano made this the winner.
Check out the photos Ian and his friends make here:
Videos about the project, shot mainly by Lane Power (I believe) here:

Old Log Church, Whitehorse YT

On this trip I learned the difference between Fuji 64T type 1 and type 2.
When cross-processed: Type 1 gives green tones and white whites (which I like), while Type 2 gives you nuclear pink everything. Waaay over the top.
I mistakenly shot all of my last pictures of Whitehorse on Type 1 64T, and have had to suck out most of the colour to make them useable. I did the same to the green to semi-match.
I actually like the black and white style desaturated pink log church. Kinda wish the green one was pink as well.
