six years ago

I’ve had this blog for 6 years. I was initially very active but over the years, I lost my steam. This month is the first time I have posted in over a year. The last three years, it’s been rather quiet here. Continue reading “six years ago”

flickr friend meet-up

Earlier this month, I spent an evening with some Flickr friends, wandering about industrial Southeast Portland and shooting some instant film (well, we shot whatever we felt like really). We got lucky with some gorgeous light and may have partaken in a bit of trespassing (in the name of art, of course). We had a blast and ended the evening with some cocktails and a bit of food. Here’s the evening from my POV. You can also see it in KIM‘s blog post HERE.

I am working on taking more people photos so I made a point to take portraits of everyone in the group. You can find links to there flickrstreams under their portraits.

I took this opportunity to shoot a lot of instant film, including some that I am less familiar with since I had some POLAROID EXPERTS in the group. I choose to shoot IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT PX 70 in my Polaroid 600 since all my recent shots with it in my SX-70 were blowing out. I figured that the faster speed of the camera might work better. I was right but, unfortunately, had some bad pod issues. I think it’s the batch, since it’s happened to multiple packs that I bought at the same time. I am including them anyway cause I think they turned out kinda cool. You will notice I left the borders on them. The rest of the shots are borderless.

The other two films I shot with were IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT PZ 600 UV+ and Fujifilm FP-100c, both of which I totally adore and highly recommend.

It’s time for the photos to speak for themselves. Here they are, in the order that I took them.
