Shots Issue 151 Celestial Bodies

This photo was published in Shots Spring 2021 Issue. The theme is Celestial Bodies.

For those of you who follow me on Instagram you know that I’ve been walking our neighborhood here in Portland, Oregon during the pandemic this past year. Vintage cars and vintage garages have been some of my favorite subjects, so getting a photo of a Comet published as a Celestial Body seems entirely appropriate! And there’s a selfie in the bumper.

For those of you who haven’t found me on Instagram, you can find the link below. Those photos are entirely different from the ones posted here. They are also entirely taken on my phone.

Expired Film and a walk to Division Street

A couple years ago I shared a photo adventure that was a bit out of character for Sanslartigue, but to refresh your memories, you can find it here.

This time, I’ve taken out my father’s Pentax MV that I inherited when he passed away several years ago.  His camera bag included a zoom lens and four rolls of Kodak Max 400 ASA color print film, “best used by 02/2006”.  I shot one of the rolls with the camera set for 150 ASA, and probably could have slowed it down a bit further, judging by the prints that came back from the lab.  I’ve scanned the prints and made some minor adjustments, and will share some of them here over the next week.

There’s still my old Minolta X700 that I’ve borrowed back from my daughter that I can’t wait to try, probably with the 2 rolls of Ferrania P30 that I bought several weeks ago!
