Abstraction

I made a big mistake when I exposed this Frame with my 1913 Kodak Autographic No.1 But it grew on me and I decided that I liked the resultant Abstraction.

It is Fuji Velvia 50 Film. So can you guess what I did wrong?

Lake Waneka and my 1913 Kodak Autographic No. 1 Camera…….

This was such a different subject than the other images on roll #2 that I wanted to post it separately.  Calm. Peace, Stillness………Taking a few days off for long awaited eye surgery.  Update at the end of the week…….

The “Lost Roll” of Film Adventure

This is the story of my second roll of film through the 1913 Kodak No.1.  I roll I shot on Pinhole Day (although it was not a pinhole).  I was still testing the camera so I carried it along…..You can see some results from my first roll of film here.

I mailed my second roll, Ilford Ortho Plus (ISO 80) on April 28th and waited…..and waited……and waited.  By the end of May I was beginning to worry so I contacted them.  Well, you can read the correspondence at the end, I want to move on to the photos.  But it suffices to say that it took them 3+ months to find my film and they returned it with no acknowledgment of the problems and no apologies.  So They’ve lost my business, permanently.  Oh, I’ll use their film, but I won’t send it to them for processing.

Anyway, let’s move on……….Ans start with my Favorite Crucifix:

This was the original Cemetery for Denver.  And it was segregated by religion and race.  This was the Orthodox Section:

Another favorite Monument above……

I forget what the tree trunk symbolizes, but it is a XXXXXX

A view of the larger Cemetery Area………….above. There is another shot taken at another location.  So I will show that separately in a couple of days…….

Now for the horror of my former Film Lab.  Click on the image to enlarge and read:

Use Ilford Labs US at your own risk.  What I really resent is the lack of an Apology or any acknowledgment of a problem when they finally did find my film.

I’ll stick with OldSchoolLabs.  They do 90% of my work (we develop the other 10% ourselves) ……..I can certainly endorse them.

 

 

From My 100 Year Old Camera

I recently purchased a Kodak No. 1 Autographic Junior 13340 from Etsy (Patent dates 1910-1913). What could have gone wrong with that!  But low and behold , I am learning to make it work.  And Conveniently this is a version that can accommodate 120 film. I was inspired by old family cameras to buy this one, but that’s another story:
