Coffee Cute

I don’t like Starbucks. Over sweet and over priced. But I like this photo of my wife Desi, despite some light leaks. I was shooting on an old Soviet Zenit-E, which is a fine old tank of an SLR. If you find one in good working order, they often have very nice Helios lens attached. I bought mine for $10, and I sometimes use the lenses (with an adapter) on my Sony a380 DSLR.

Ship of Souls

A Victorian family vault rises from the turf of the Hamilton Cemetery, like burrowing submarine. I shot this with a Brownie Box 2a, one that clearly needs some light-proofing. This was the camera that got me back into shooting film a couple of years ago. I’ve since acquired a much more light proof and usable Brownie 2, made sometime around 1907. It shoots lovely photos.  Some of my Brownie Box photos are going to show up in a BBC Magazine feature later this year. I’ll be sure to post a link.
