And one roll of film Last week, I noticed that there are now over 500 of you who follow this blog, either through WordPress or via email notification. So, how did that happen? When I started the exploration of rangefinder photography and this blog, the posts were filled with photos shot on film. Really, they […]
Sunny. Sunny. Sunny. That’s been the weather forecast in town for some time. The great weather has brought out the Summer attire, which almost always involves the wearing of shorts and the occasional straps-off-the-shoulder dress.

It’s a bit more ambiguous and yet it’s a […]
A day of red and white. Happy St. Valentine’s Day!
My definition of “vernacular” is broader than “the native speech of an area.” It includes how and where people live as well as their means of communication, from sitting around a café to texting. Two locations in Southern California provided me with a strong contrast in observing the vernacular. From how people communicated to the […]
Last week, I had a short break from the normal. I travelled to the San Francisco bay area to visit family and friends and I threw in a bit of photography as well. I took the Voigtländer R2A and the Nikon D3, with a bunch of lenses. Well, I used the D3 a couple of […]
