The latest addition to the (Hardly) Weekly Camera Project is this adorable 110 camera I have, the Kodak Tele Ektralite. (how do they come up with these names?)
I haven’t shot 110 film much, but I really enjoy how tiny the camera is, fits in my coat pocket easily. And, as you can see, it’s not difficult to shoot on the fly when riding yer bike.
(also, looking at these photos, I find myself shocked that the bowling alley that sign is attached to is not, in fact, abandoned. I guess when you’re the only game in town, you don’t need to put a lot of effort into presentation…? And let’s be honest: the sign is actually so amazing.)
I drove to Edmonton to table at the Anarchist Bookfair, back in October.
Spent the night in Yorkton along the way, sleeping in the cab of our truck.
Woke as the sun was just starting to rise.
Land of living skies indeed.
There is, in the far corner of our yard, the quietly decaying skeleton of an old laptop, whose keyboard contains a message. This message is the very same message your very own computer is trying to tell you, when it notices you’ve been looking at gifsets for the past 18 hours.
Quit When Everything Races Towards You.
(how much time have you spent on tumblr today? Maybe it’s time for a break. Look out the window. It’s spring out there.)
Lace curtains and potted herbs make going to the washroom quite a pleasant experience.
The surplus beans left over after some were set aside for seed.
If my recollection serves me, these became part of a delicious chili.
Growing up, my interaction with beans was primarily facilitated with a can opener. I probably wouldn’t have believed you if you told me that beans could come in such an array of colours and patterns.
Nature = The Ultimate Artist.
duck-duck-g00s3 asked: All my film pictures are under the hashtag #photobygoose Well, Instagram does allow you to take pictures and put different filters on them. But tons of people put their film pictures on there. Unedited. I transfer them from a cd onto my phone and onto Instagram they go. Second hand stores and thrift shops will be my next place to explore. We have many here. I plan on learning how to do it myself. LA has a place where you can rent it out hourly and they have everything you need to use.
Good luck with hunting through the thrift stores. I imagine that LA probably has so many! Might be that there is lots of other people looking for similar things, though. I’d say that, if you have the ability to get out of the city, thrift stores in small towns might be less picked over. But I realize that LA is really fuckin’ big, and it might be hard to actually escape it. That’s sweet that there is a rental darkroom you can use.
Sorting dried beans and corn to be saved as seed.
(soon these will be going in the ground! If it ever warms up…)
There are advantages to being friends with farmers who produce more than they can consume or sell.
Especially when they go away for the winter, and need someone to take care of all of their poor lonely veggies….
(all from last fall, unfortunately. None of this bounty, save for a few squash, remain today. Gone, but not forgotten.)
Upon returning from Harvest Moon, we stopped at Spruce Woods provincial park, and went for a walk among some oxbow lakes.
Late afternoon light is really nice for these sorts of things.
(I wish the snow would melt.)
Pretty much explains it’s self, doesn’t it?
(Harvest Moon Festival. Where else.)
