Some More Pics

Posted 2012.01.24 22.07 in Photography, Pointless Blather

This past weekend there was snow, but the weekend before that, there was not.

I took a walk across the local cricket pitch and around the block, and shot some pics as I went. I was using my Olympus XA-3 with a roll of long-expired “Klick Max” film. It’s some store-brand that I’d never heard of, that I’d acquired at some point over the past year.

I found when developing it that the colours had an interesting shift to them. A bit more blue, a bit more red. (Or a bit less green?) Either way, the effects were unexpected but I rather like how some of them came out.

Until the past week or so, I had not been taking a lot of pictures (as evidenced by the lack of photo posts here). I’m trying to keep up with it, and I have a couple more rolls of film to process yet. I do expect to take more pictures, and hopefully as the weather gets better I will get out more with my cameras.

They’re Baaaaack…

Oh wait, wrong movie. Who you gonna call?

 

I love that whoever owns this car sometimes parks it in my neighborhood.

You Know You Live On A Funky Street When…

I knew my neighborhood was cool when I saw that mobile¬†Alchemist on Call van parked out front…

But this morning I spotted a new vehicle parked out front:

Who You Gonna Call?

Who You Gonna Call?

I guess the Historical Society was on to something when they sent out pamphlets around here asking if anyone had experienced paranormal activities in their homes.

I know I sure have.
