I hope you like it. Thanks for looking.
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.
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.
Some sandy bluffs down on the Thompson River near Ashcroft BC.
Taken this past spring/summer on an epic photo drive from Merritt to Logan Lake and up to Ashcroft.
Uncorrected, dirty and hairy. Polaroid Chocolate.
Built in 1876 by Rev. George Murray and the people of Nicola shortly after he settled there.
Previous to that he was the only presbyterian minister in the interior of BC.
Ministering a circuit covering 600 miles, entirely by horseback. Polaroid Chocolate
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.
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.
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: http://ianruhter.tumblr.com/
Videos about the project, shot mainly by Lane Power (I believe) here: http://vimeo.com/39578584
Sat on this awhile because I wanted to post some different formats, but whatevs.
Leeside DIY skatepark near playland. Many thanks to the hard working skaters who built and maintain this spot in memory of local skater Lee Matasi. Spinner.
I did manage to take some normal coloured pictures while in the Yukon. Overcast but the sun is trying....
Spirit Houses/ First Nations burial site on the way to Long Lake. Near downtown Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. Spinner.
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.
