This image was captured in Colorado last year -- Near the RNP in September of 2016. But - I can't remember if this was with the Rollei or the YashicaMat124G. It turned out really well.
I am really lucky to be with a firm in which it's center product is one of the result of the efforts of creativity. The business of Architecture is as much of an Art as it is a Discipline for results which fit the need. Ok -- that was a bit heady . . .
This image - as wth many - was a grab shot, as I sit next to Ying, and Pierre was marking something up for discussion. Film -- no crop -- self developed and scanned.
Shot at FFKR Architects in Salt Lake City - yes, FFKR is where I call my day job. But -- a part of that job is photographing the office. And it's a good gig.
The Niece is wearing the Petzel -- in Park City. Nikon F100 with Kodak Ektar 100 - self developed.
Having some fun in Park City Utah - my Wife and Nephew in this scene. Shot with the Nikon F100.
Lola the English Bulldog - in all of her black and white glory !! Shot on Fuji Acros and Stand developed in Rodinal for 60 minutes.
This was shot on the Nikon F100 of a pass thru area of a local High School. It was cloudy outside and the Sun had set - and the reflections were intense.
Shot on the Nikon F100 with Fuji Acros 100 and then Stand developed in Rodinal for 60 minutes.
Nikon F100 35mm with Fujifilm Acros 100 - wall is from the Bogue Building here in SLC, with afternoon Sun. Stand development in Rodinal for 60 minutes.
This was shot on the Nikon F100 during and evening walk the beginning of Summer - I think this is Ilford Delta 400 - but not quite sure as I type this. Lots of grain which makes me think I was experimenting with Stand development on 400 speed film. And that 400 speed really makes a difference compared to 100.
A New Orleans building where the light, the lines, with the interpretation from the Rollei 6008i in black and white Fuji Acros 100, makes this image better than being there. No Crop.
A cafe was just outside the historic area of New Orleans on the remodeled area of the "strip". Yet the signage looked really dated and graphically wonderful. Fuji Acros - no Crop.
This image is one of my favorites of the New Orleans -- it appears to be some kind of a psychic. The group may or may not be related - and the black and white capture adds to the mystery. Shot on the Rollei 6008i with Acros 100 stand development in Rodinal - no crop.
A quick shot of the falls - at Twin Falls - known as the Niagara of the West. Shot with the Rollei 6008i with Fujifilm Acros 100 and processed with a stand development using Rodinal with a dilution for a 60 minute processing time.
A March trip to New Orleans, where I shot a bunch of medium format Fuji Acros 100. That city and the old town area is really quite something to capture. As with all of my work - no crop.
This is an interesting day for me — July 4th — as I was recalled to active Army duty this day in 2005, ten days after I was married.
I served in 2/75 Ranger, stationed in Ft. Lewis Washington from 1999-2002 - and ETS’d and finished my degree at Idaho State University.
Upon graduation from ISU in 2005 I traveled home in May of that year and sitting on the kitchen table, was the “Letter in the Mail” — literally, “Go to War of Go to Jail”.
I couldn’t believe it - my parents couldn’t believe it - and upon opening and reading the letter, I turned to my Dad and said - “Start pouring the Gin, because I’ve just been recalled to Active Duty.” We all, were in shock - as this stuff never happens - well — it happened. And July 4th I said my good byes - got on a plane and traveled to South Carolina, then Georgia, and finally Texas and then I landed in Baghdad on the weekend of Labor Day.
I spent 10.5 months with a Reserve unit where our Company name was the Rough Riders - carrying on the storied tradition of the original Rough Riders fame. Yes — that is true.
We traveled in and around the Baghdad area in uparmored Humvee’s delivering people and or equipment.
