Some time ago I came across a small collection of 35mm film kicking around the house which needed to be processed. Out of five rolls, I knew that one roll was somewhat recent, but of the others, I had no idea how old they were or what was on them. What I do know is that all pictures were shot with one of the following three cameras. 1. a 1960′s Miranda Camera. 2. A Pentax SLR from the 1970′s. 3. A Fujifilm 35mm point and shoot. The cool thing about all of these cameras is that you don’t know what you are getting. They are like Holga’s in that respect, but without all of the hipster street cred.
Airplanes! I remember taking this one. I was out walking with my niece and nephew while visiting their town. They live close to an Army base so there is a constant flight pattern overhead. The kids were taking me and my dog on a walking tour of all their playing spots and forts located in a small remaining forested area encroached by a new subdivision. I hope they don’t lose those trees. I do recall them taking me to see an old car door in that forest . . . just an old rusty car door, but the neighbourhood kids played around it all the time. It’s a car door in the woods, why not play around it? Kids are awesome.
This is the alleyway behind our current studio. We are just up the red fire escape on the right. We have used this alleyway for legitimate photo shoots at least once. We should probably use it more.
