Spring Break Day 6

Day 6 of our trip was, unfortunately, our last day full day in Arizona. We decided to try to pack in as much climbing and adventuring as possible, which resulted in a huge overload of photographs (meaning this will be a long post). We started the day climbing in the Prison Camp area again, since there were still a few routes there that we wanted to do in that area. After climbing until we were exhausted we drove higher up the mountain to catch the sunset. Unfortunately I foolishly deleted images on my SD card before I transferred them to my computer, so almost all of the sunset images are gone. If anyone has any miracles to recover files from a formatted SD card I would love to hear them!

Long Overdue Film

I haven’t been doing such a great job of keeping this place updated lately. Graduate school has kept me busy that is for sure. But I am in a blogging mood tonight and decided to share some images with you all (some long overdue ones). I also have plans for a few more posts that I will hopefully be able to get to in the coming days to update you all on how my graduate work is coming.

This post, however, is all about film. I recently got some rolls developed, some of which I had forgotten about since shooting them years ago. The first set, was from a trip to North Carolina that I shot with some very expired film. If I remember correctly the expiration date was the year I was born (1989), so that is why the grain is so intense on these images. They were shot on a 35mm Holga camera.

The first and last are from two separate trips to Colorado, and the middle ones are from two different adventures outside of Manhattan, KS.

Happy weekend everyone!

Impossible Project: Sunday Brunch

The Impossible Project¬†(where I purchase all my polaroid film) has a feature on their blog every Sunday titled “Sunday Brunch”. Every Sunday they feature 5 photographs that stood out to them that week, and it is always so interesting to see what people are shooting with this unique style of photography. This past Sunday, I was fortunate enough to be featured on the blog with some really wonderful images. Be sure to check it out here!

And here is the photograph that was featured along with another one from that day that I never posted here on my blog:

 

 

Polaroids

I haven’t posted here in a while, in part because I have been so busy, and because for the most part I have only been shooting for class and nothing else. But, I had a few minutes this morning so I thought I would finally get around to posting the polaroid shots that I have been doing.

These first images were from when I was back home in Stillwater, MN a few months ago.

And the rest have been mostly in Lexington, or around Lexington, over the past few months.

Gallery

This gallery contains 21 photos.

I have been using my Holga (which is a cheap, plastic, toy film camera) a lot more recently, and though I have uploaded pictures to Flickr I haven’t shared any here. So I thought I would create a quick post … Continue reading
