A couple more photos taken with my Holga. You can see the vignetting in the top photo in the upper corners. That comes from the lens being a single piece of plastic. The image below was taken in the downtown Seattle Library. It’s an amazing spot for taking photos.
These shells are living a nice indoor life at the Northwest Maritime Center and Wooden Boat Foundation in downtown Port Townsend. I was impressed with the reflections off of the shells … this was taken through the glass door (they were closed as I was walking by, looking for shots to use up the end of this roll of Tri-X). There are some of these that are historic with notable wins. Port Townsend has a long history of boat building.
I was waiting for a service representative in a warehouse store recently when I looked up and noticed the open network of pipes and other parts of the infrastructure. I thought it was an interesting pattern and worth a photo … a lot more than a photo of the service desk.
By the way, I was waiting to be fitted for hearing aids. I don’t have a lot of loss … mostly a reduction in high frequency sounds typical of folks my age. The first thing I really noticed a difference in after getting them was in hearing a lot more birdsong … well worth the extra money and minor hassle. So, I encourage you all to have your hearing checked regularly. You may not realize what you’re missing.
When I took this image into the Lightroom Development Module and was cropping, I REALLY struggled trying to square it up. But when I stepped back a moment, I realized that there just wasn’t anything I could adjust to make everything square. It reflects the old building just the way it was … crooked stairs and all. Sometimes reality just isn’t squared up. This was shot with a Nikon F6 on Kodak Tri-X … so black and white film … so the grain in the image reflects the film grain.
I know the flower isn’t that sorry looking, but the title occurred to me and I thought it was funny.
This is a film shot … taken with my Hasselblad 503C/M, which I bought for me a couple years back, since I always wanted one (long ago) and couldn’t afford it.
