Black and White Film with Filters!, a set on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Kids these days seldom seem to use filters with their black and white film. I see this as a problem, like trying to play trumpet without using the keys, it leaves you with a pretty limited range. Filters in Black and White can dramatically impact your end result.
Fanta Orange on Flickr.
Lisa was pretty stoked when I came back with two of her favourite soda’s at the schwarma place. Fanta Orange hasn’t been generally available in Canada since we were kids and Lisa had rekindled her love affair with it in Europe a couple years ago.
The schwarma place (Babylon on Robson Street, one of the best) gets it from somewhere in the middle east, making it even more exotic.
Trajan was unphased, not yet being a fan of soda. The boy certainly loves his schwarma though!
Because the one thing Vancouver really lacks on Flickr.
Is over-priced burger joints with an elevated sense of their place in the food chain. Thankfully, the Cactus Club is there and, increasingly everywhere, to remedy this problem. Ugh.
Zuiko 85mm f/2, Olympus OM-4. Just loving the metering on the OM-4, everything lands right where I want it using their wonderful spot meter. In this case, a shadow reading off of the black cladding retains full detail.
Vancouver’s Famous Sea Wall on Flickr.
People come to Vancouver from all around the world to walk the Seawall and see the stunning views of the North Shore, English Bay, False Creek etc. We’re spoiled, I’ve lived within a couple blocks of it for most of the last 25 years and, while I’m out on the seawall frequently, I don’t really think too much of the views most of the time.
Lately, however, I’ve started noticing some pretty cool stuff happening around knee level on the sea wall.
Vancouver Pen EE2 User Group Meetup Diptych on Flickr.
Such a serious group with such silly cameras. The next 72 exposures appear to be crucial to both Will and Arnaud’s essential being and their relationship to the world into which they’ve been thrown.
Damn moody Europeans! ;-)
Taken in the parking lot Midway at Lougheed Mall, Burnaby on our way home from the swap meet where each of them purchased an Olympus Pen EE2 and other less genteel items of vintage photographic miscellaney.
Olympus OM-2s, Zuiko 85mm f/2.0, Tri-X @800, developed in Rodinal at 1:50 for 16.5 minutes.
