I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Film Friday - Morocco, Part 2: Meknes and Volubilis

A few more film shots from my trip to Morocco. On our second day we drove to Meknes and then to Volubilis, a gorgeous Roman ruin nestled in the hills near Moulay Idriss.

One of the Moroccan kings used to keep 400 horses in among these archways. More than one for every day of the year!

Demolition Square in Meknes.

And then we arrived at Volubilis.

The guy in the burgundy djellaba was our guide. He was pretty cool. He had taught himself English just by speaking to tourists, although it was still pretty patchy, and his French was great, as is usually the case in Morocco.

That's not the end of the Morocco photos, at least one more installment is coming!

Nathaniel - Six Months

I just absolutely adored getting to see Nathaniel again for his six month photos. What a total cutie! I just loved his yellow duvet cover and all his whale themed paraphernalia.

Doesn't he have just the best eyes?

They also have a Bengal cat, who is the same size as Nathaniel if not bigger.

Love that expression!

See what I mean?

Film Friday - Expired

When I bought my Bronica it came with a couple of rolls of expired film. I had no idea how old they were, or how carefully they'd been stored (with film, the colder it's stored, the better). But I felt fairly optimistic, maybe because that's just my default position in general on things.

So I shot a roll over Christmas, expired TMAX 100, and the results were . . . interesting. The first few shots just looked a little funky as I scanned them, but the further I got into the roll the worse it got. Not terrible, no, but certainly not crystal clear. The grain clumps make the film look dirty, but I promise it isn't. Or at least not that dirty.

Evan. My ever patient subject.

Like this shot, I really love it. Or I would, if you could actually see what was going on.

Anyway, that's part of the magic of film! You never know for sure what you're going to get. I still have a couple expired rolls, and I shot one in color last week, so I'll share it with you when it gets developed.

Film Sunday - A Bit Late

A few random film photos, one from the 35mm camera, and the rest from the medium format camera.
