Thanks for all the comments on the last post and for sharing how you scan your negatives with me. I’m going to shoot an engagement this coming weekend with some film and send it out to be scanned. That’ll be the real test! I’m just really hoping for good weather because right now, the reports are calling for rain on the day of the shoot.
These are the last of the Monterey photos. I look really miniature in the first photo, but like how the colors came out. I used Fuji 800z here (because of how extremely overcast it was) and still had a lot of underexposed shots. Sadface. The top photos were taken at the Carmel Mission, which blew my mind. Such an beautiful place!
Cliff photos were taken in Monterey. We stopped on the side of the road the day we drove home and it was sunny and beautiful out. I found a little rocky cliff with scattered little patches of yellow flowers. We took a few photos and I noticed that on another cliff parallel to the one I was standing on, a couple was getting engaged. The guy bent down on one knee, this is how I knew : ). I saw them walking back to their car and asked if they wanted me to take a photo and email it to them. Felt a bit like a stalker but figured they might want something to document the day.
Monterey Bay Pier is at the bottom. There were otters floating around on the ocean and some sea lions barking on planks that morning. You could see the fog rolling in and over the low hills in the background.
I feel like it’s been a really long time since the last update. This past weekend, I took my camera out to test a roll and ended up wasting the whole thing. I guess I loaded it wrong and then proceeded to open….the back? I’m not quite sure why I did that, but I did. Drove over to Samy’s Camera and picked up three rolls, just in case I messed it up again, which I didn’t. Here’s the results. Just a bunch of random things around the apartment: oranges from yesterday and peonies from Ron. He was in Nashville for Valentine’s Day, so I just sat around in pajamas, eating oranges, listening to music and watching romantic comedies. How was your Valentine’s Day?
Sorry I haven’t been updating much. After this weekend, i’ll have a lot more! Promise.
Hi, world. I finally got out of the house on Sunday, after being stuck indoors with that little plague I contracted. It was nice to get out and see the world, and plus, it was 84 degrees! Sitting at the park, enjoying the sun and light wind, reminded me of summer. I brought my Rolleiflex with me and shot a roll of film (above).
Got a roll of 120 film developed from my Holga. I just shot a bunch of random things on the pier and at the beach in Laguna…or was it Dana Point? I can’t really remember, exactly.
My sister just left this morning. She was here for a little under a week and it’s been really nice hanging out, laughing with her. We did a bunch of my favorite things: Shop, eat, drink, laugh. I didn’t take many photos but what I did take, i’ll post once they’re developed.
Getting back into the swing of things, catching up on work and other things related. Looking for some new music, which has been somewhat of a task for me lately. I’ve still been on a Ray Lamontagne kick. Bought an older album of his “Gossip In The Grain”. I love every single song! Really wish I could see him live but he’s on a European tour AND I JUST MISSED A SHOW IN SEPT HERE AT THE GREEK THEATER! Kicking myself for that one.
Hope everyone is having a good week.
Wow! It’s been a long time since i’ve updated. I’ve been really busy lately, which is a good thing. I also have these photos from this past Sunday. Finally got to take the Rollei out on a date w/ my new neck strap. I feel a lot more confident that it won’t crash into the concrete, now that it has a strap.
Things & Such

-A few images I really love here here here and here
Hope everyone is having a great week! I’m really looking forward to some warmer weather. I have my shorts and sandals just sitting around waiting to be used.
Just realized, I haven’t been shooting much film lately. Seems like Winter really forces me into a little rabbit hole- one I don’t want to come out of til’ Spring.
I’ve been looking through old photos, feeling inspired to shoot some 120 film. Maybe this weekend i’ll get out of the house and take a roll or two. Crossing my fingers for some blue skies! Rain has been pouring down all week long, here.
