Colorado of Last Year

Added on by John Sturr.

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.

the Creatives

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.

Looking Thru...

Added on by John Sturr.

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.

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.

New Orleans - 2

Added on by John Sturr.

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.

Twin Falls Idaho

Added on by John Sturr.

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.

New Orleans - 1

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.

July 4th - 2005

Added on by John Sturr.

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.
