Dead end

About a week ago I went to visit MacLeay Park in Portland. The park is one of my favorites not only for its natural beauty but because of all the Portland history behind it. I’m a huge history buff.

I was intending to use up the last few shots on my current roll of film, but nothing caught my eye. After enjoying the park for a while, ice cold rain started to fall so I called it a day and headed back to my car.

About a block away I noticed this scene and knew I’d found something special. This old Lincoln with New Jersey plates and ‘suicide’ doors was sitting next to a dead end sign. It was just what I was looking for.

I just got a roll of Kodak T-Max 400 film back from the lab. The pictures are incredible! I just don’t think I would be able to reproduce this same look with digital.

I took this photo in Chicago right after Thanksgiving. If you’re a Dark Knight fan like me you’ll get the reference.


Thanks for stopping by today!


Porta 400: Huntington Gardens and Olvera Street

I decided to make a small investment into a Nikon film camera that would be inexpensive and still work with my current lenses. After doing some research, I ended up finding a Nikon N80 on Ebay for $35! When my family visited a few weeks ago, my mom brought me a roll of Kodak Porta 400 to shoot. Film photography is a blast! The colors are incredible and the dynamic range is way better than anything I could get with a digital camera that costs 100x as much as my N80. I am definitely hooked, and currently working on a roll of T-Max 400. More photos to come!
