Christmas Comes One Time a Year! I really enjoy continuing the christmas tradition, even though the younger ones are loosing the “faith”. The whole preparation, getting the tree, putting the Red Wings player in the window. You know, all the proper christmas trappings, of course. The Holidays are super fun. Friends, family and fun […]
Grain or not too Grainy… Well I just tried some of Kodak’s Portra 800. Nice stuff I would have to say. It does not seem too grainy from my tastes, I kinda like it. I could shoot in really low light and hand hold. The film also works for everyday shooting.
Old Car and an Old Camera How Fitting The other day I was running to Safeway, the neighborhood grocery store, to pick up something for the dinner menu. Parked in the lot with two spaces to the right was an old Chrysler DeSoto! They really do not make them like they used to. That auto […]
Fall has officially arrived here in the Pacific NW although you would not not know it. It has been dry and very warm here lately. I think that autumn is the best time of the year. School starts again the days are warm and the evening are cool. Enjoy the weather.

The city of Portland seems to excel at this mixture of green space within the city. I have taken my boys along this […]
Industrial Landscape or Urban Landscape I have been wrestling with the proper title for the series of images that I have been shooting lately. I initially called them Urban Landscapes, however I felt like the images were more industrial than urban. As of now I am leaning toward Industrial.
Spring Portraits My Mother in Law is visiting from Honduras. I am enjoying her visit. It has been very easy for me having her here. I was nervous at the beginning because my wife booked her flight for her stay to last 3 months. You see my Mother in Law, let’s call her Pita from […]
Mysterious Temptress I have always been sort of reticent to cross process my film. The colors are never true but they can produce very interesting results. If you are purist with color than cross processing will be uncomfortable for you. That may not be a bad thing. Pushing yourself into uncomfortable territory is sometimes a […]
We arrived at our destination roughly 12 hours later, actually 13 because of a GPS misinterpretation from my trusty navigator who frequently says “I Love my GP!” I do not love the GP. Anyway the rest of the family was there. It was a great time and such a refreshing time for me. Thanks to […]
