Thoughts on Life, Art, Photography, Technology, Teaching and Travel…..
I’ve been editing the thousands of images Andei and I shot during our trip through Ireland. We had a very special trip – one, I’m sure neither of us will ever forget. I’m writing a travel article for the local paper and putting a Blurb Book together as well. Just looking at the photos makes me long to go back to the home of my ancestors. I could easily see myself living in Dublin, Galway or even Cork after I retire.
I also developed 2 rolls of 2 1/4 Delta 100 B&W film taken with my Diana camera during my travels and was pleasantly surprised with the results. The fun thing about shooting plastic cameras like Holga’s and Diana is no matter how careful and deliberate you are when taking pictures with them – you never know exactly what you’re going to get in the final image. The plastic lens translates subject matter in a soft, dreamy almost ethereal way. Sometimes they are properly exposed and sharp and other times the images are either over exposed or under and have a very soft painterly quality to the prints. Here are some of my favorites from our trip. I’m posting more under the plastic camera page of the blog. Enjoy!
