Kodak TMAX 100

Another roll has been loaded. More film being exposed. Another update soon-ish. I'd like to shoot some colour film. Maybe after this next roll of TMAX100 I'll shoot some colour film. Maybe.

There's a sign in front of this house announcing its future demolition to make way for seven or eight stories of condos. I'd like to think that knocking the fence down one section at a time is a sympathetic way of erasing yet another part of the neighborhood.

I mean, the debate about ripping off the bandaid quickly or slowly has never been definitively answered, maybe so slow you don't notice it happening is the right approach?

I just spent 3 days putting this roof on. There was more to it, rotton wood, and stuff. The shadow of the tree looms, a reminder of what it was that ate the old roof. This is my first shingled roof. It made my joints ache, but I think I won. I guess I won't know for at least 10 years, or the first rain, I suppose, will be a good judge of my efforts.

I'm going to shoot film again. The days are longer now, film friendly light is a common commodity well into the evenings. Sporadic updates will likely be the result. But hopefully the realignment of efforts will result in photographs not of roofs, and sunsets.

Long days. I noticed it was a day just as it was ending.

Oscar. Spring is here, and it feels like summer.

Sourdough. Early stages.

Nope. Not with my phone. Not with a camera. Nothing.

So how about some photographs by Olga Petroff to make it up to you.

This wall gets knocked down next month, or soon after that. I'm going to miss it.

Film in this one too. Half shot, or so, which is poetic for a half frame camera... too many distractions. Not complaining.

I know, I know, the damned watch shows quarter after midnight. So I'm cheating. But the EXIF data shows it was taken before midnight. Regardless, it's the picture I have. So it's the picture you get.

It's that season again.

Some time ago there stood a run down house on that site where the yellow one is now.

Today's word is "fenestration." Everything I know about fenestration suggests this is an abomination. Misaligned and random, with no consideration for structure or pattern. And yet it's somehow soothing. Maybe. I'm not sure.

These two. No words.

Beef Bourguignon. Test run. The onions are delicious. More next time, and a more aggressive sear on the beef. Pretty close. Very delicious.

I quite like this building.

Developed some film tonight. (see yesterday's post..)

I bought a Yashica 35MF film camera for $70. It's worth $30. Vintage stuff is fashionable, next year it would cost me $150. Strange days. Monique; this picture is everything I hoped it would be. A bit out of focus. A bit over exposed. And full of an amazing smile.
