Inktober 2020

Tomorrow is the start of (r)Oc(k)tober, so that means a month of Inktober. On a whim, I decided to participate last year, just to see how it'd go. I didn't follow any of the official daily prompts. Instead, I drew what I felt like. It quickly turned into a daily journal comic. That was nice.... Continue Reading →

Goodbye, Ricoh 35 ZF

It's time again to say farewell to another camera. This time, the Ricoh 35 ZF leaves the flock. I didn't have it long, only acquiring it in late June. A "summer fun" camera, I guess.

Growing the hair out

Self-Portrait, Kenilworth Park. 28 Aug 2020. Camera: Olympus XA2. Film: Ilford HP5+ 400. Since stay at home became a thing, I've seen a lot of #pandemicbeards on the social medias.

From the The Dalles Ramble, Leap Day 2020. It's one of my favorite shots of the year, and it was shot on the Pentax IQZoom 170SL. (Espio 170SL) Another camera departs the flock. This time it was my Pentax IQZoom 170SL, known as the Espio 170SL outside of North America. I got this camera way... Continue Reading →
