Rainforest Road

Switching camera now. The Minolta Maxxum 5. This film camera was released in 2001! Can you believe new film cameras were still being produced in the 2000s?

These are some photos I shot at our Rainforest Rd property, back in 2013. Notice the bokeh here, the stock lens was really something.

Greek Islands

Some snaps from our 2013 Greece trip. 1968 Konica C35.

Really love the muted tones this film captured. It did a great job of capturing the sunset (bottom left) and dusk (bottom right) colours. And doesn’t Talia look so cool, sitting there in that ISO grain, framed with a spectacularly soft focus blur.

Carrara Marble

I don’t know exactly what it is about this photo that I love so much. Maybe it’s the straight lines cut into the stone, reminiscent of the Bauhaus architecture we’d witnessed in Jerusalem.

This is a photo of a portion of the marble quarry in Carrara, Italy. Taken in 2013 on a 1968 Konica C35.

Jerusalem Stone

Here is series of photos I took in 2013, exploring the streets of Jerusalem. A lot of the work is done by the beautiful grain of the 800 ISO film capturing stone textures. The camera: a Konica C35, made in 1968, which was my first ever analog camera.

One Word at a Time: Update

An update on my previous post about writing: In the spirit of making small steps toward fiction writing confidence, I’ve published an excerpt of my (unedited) novel here on my blog.

Viewing the excerpt requires a password. I guess I’m not yet brave enough to make it fully public.

Anyone can figure the password out. It’s the three-letter name of one of the book’s characters (all uppercase). It’s also the first letter of each paragraph in this post.
