Fall Photo Challenge 2022: Night Photography (Oct 9-Nov 20)

Bikes and Film Cameras Club

Hello folks! It’s time for the second Bikes and Film Cameras Photo Challenge! This challenge is open to anyone who loves both bicycles and film photography. You don’t need to be a member of the club, but it wouldn’t hurt!

The theme for the fall challenge is Night Photography. (And yes, déjà vu: It’s the same as our first challenge!) Let’s see your shots from after dark! The challenge will happen from Sunday October 9th 2022 through Sunday November 20, 2022. All times local. Here’s the nitty gritty:

PRICE REDUCED: Bikes and Film Cameras Club membership WITH cameras (Pentax IQZoom 928 and Canon Snappy K)

If you haven’t, finding sub $10 color film is now all but impossible.) 1 And prices for some camera batteries is as much as film! I want to make it easy for people to get into film photography. But instead of being bitter, I’m going to make it easier for you folks: I’m reducing the price on these combos.

First up: The Canon Snappy K camera is a circa 1988 compact 35mm point and shoot. It is very basic and simple to use:…

Ricohflex Dia: Four months in

Union Station, Portland OR, 31 July 2022. Ricohflex Dia/Ilford XP2 Back in May I acquired my Ricohflex Dia (or Diacord) twin-lens reflex (TLR) 120 camera.

Does anyone know what time it is? I’ll tell you. It’s time for the 2022 Coffeeneuring Challenge, now in its 12th year.On October 7, the Chasing Mailboxes Coffeeneuring Challenge is back and this time we have an Intern to help run the challenge! If you ride a bike and drink coffee or tea (or even hot chocolate, coffee stouts, or cider) please consider this fall challenge.

The Coffeeneuring Challenge is a time to mellow out, slow down the pedal strokes, and make the most of a delicious time of year by lingering over a cup of your favorite fall beverage. This challenge offers an opportunity to connect virtually or in-person with others, and can also be a time to carve out space for solitary contemplation over a beverage. Let’s coffeeneur our way through the changing seasons.
