Reto Ultra Wide and Slim: Embracing the lo-fi

When I got back into film photography two years ago, I wanted results. I wanted cameras with good lenses and preferably manual control of focus and exposure.

A proper midnight bike ride — 2nd Friday means MMR. I make it to a fair number of Midnight Mystery Rides throughout the year, though my motivation usually wanes in the winter months.

From the start location at Piccolo Park we wound through inner southeast, including a few ride-bys of Portland Winter Light Festival installations along the way.
