recently i have picked up a few new cameras.
first was a Pentax 645 then came a Olympus XA2 ( and i think i have just bought a 6×17 MF camera… )
i have a few photos from both of those cameras, as well as some from my Hasselblad and Pentax LX.
i am very happy both!
a few weeks ago i spent a day down by the coast at some local ports.
the day started off a bit overcast while i was at Port Albert, and i shot a roll of Kodak Ektar, but later in the day the sun shone through, and i went to Port Welshpool and shot a roll of Kodak E100s.
both rolls were shot with a Hasselblad 500CM and 50mm Distagon T* lens.
some friends and i went for a drive around Moe a few weeks ago, and came across this old school.
some parts have started to be demolished, and others are being rebuilt, not sure as what though…
this is my first roll of film souped in D-76. decent results, so im happy.
Leica M6TTL Kodak Tri-X
i spent a few days in Brisbane fro a mates wedding. a managed to actually shoot a few rolls of film, and also managed to stuff one up while developing..
i have another roll of colour to scan yet, but heres a few shots for starters..
Leica M6 TTL Kodak Tmax 100
sometime ago while searching the internet for new places to check out, i came across someones Flickr page that showed a few local-ish old/abandoned buildings. so the other day i decided to go looking for the old Darnum Milk Factory. i had a vague idea where it was, and in the end wasn’t too hard to find.
Canon EOS33, Kodak TriX 400, Agfa Rodinal stand development.
last week i went for a drive up in to the hills, it was damn cold, about 2.C and nearly snowing..
i had the Hasselblad with me thought id have a go at pushing film.
i used Kodak TriX 400 and Kodak TMax 400 both pushed one stop to 800iso.
didnt have much luck finding dev times for those films at 800 iso with Rodinal, other than stand dev, so i just used TMax 1-4, which turned out to be the same times as they would be normally when dev’d at 400…
the first shot is Tmax and the second TriX.
months and months ago i bought a disposable KODAK camera, i think it was $4..
thought it would be cool to keep it in the Rambler Studio and the studio days.
well after the studio finished up, the camera was left with a dozen or so shots left to go, it didnt get much use in its time, and it got chucked in my car, where it stayed for another month or 2.
yesterday was a nice sunny day and i though id go for a ride around town, and as i was looking for my ipod, i saw the camera, and decided that id take it with me to finish the film off, heres a few goodies.

I couldn't surrender, try as they might, to an expectation, a label, or a routine. Constantly I'd struggle, trying to fit in a preconceived mold but I'd only end up hurting myself in the process, I was either too big, too small, or the wrong 'shape' of thinking!
