Retrospective: The Steps
Here a set of steps goes up towards Infinity……….
Retrospective: Loveland Pass
Here is the second look back at my last roll of Kodak E100GX. This time from Loveland Pass.
Retrospective: Longs Peak
Over the next few Retrospective postings I’ll be sharing my last few roll of Kodak E100GX from 2011. I start here with a view of Longs Peak from Rocky Mountain National Park:
Have a Relaxing Labor Day
Retrospective: We are Looking Back to January for these ‘Doors’
I was following Thursday Doors back then, but not posting to it. But here we go, some Tiny Doors from my first posting for the Frugal Film Project. The Featured Image is a Little Free Libraryon my street.

Retrospective: The Doors of Ft Lupton
There are many ‘Forts” in Colorado. But none of them were military outposts. Instead, these were fortified trading posts for Indigenous Peoples and early Trappers.
Fort Lupton has been completely reconstructed on a site adjacent to the original location. It was established in 1836 by Lancaster Lupton, a former soldier and West Point Graduate. Click on the link above for the details of the Founding of the Fort. He had passed through the area with the Dodge-Leavenworth Expedition in 1834.
Trading Gate, interior, the Natives were kept in this smaller area and never allowed into the main Fort.

Check out the History of Ft Collins, Ft Morgan, Bent’s Fort and there are more Forts, some even were military…………
Retrospective: Mission Santa Ines
And of course a Door because it is Thursday……The side entry photographed better than the Main Entrance. You may have noticed that this is Infrared.
Mission Santa Ines is located next to Solvang, California. It was founded in 1804. I was visiting a friend in Santa Barbara back in 2017 when I made this visit. I decided to use my Nikon-1, which was converted to full spectrum by KolariVision. I then used an IR filter to limit the exposure to Infrared.
Church was in session, so I wandered around outside and focussed my photography there. Obviously a full house with people standing in the doorway.
Views around the Courtyard, Above Left to Right: St Francis, Shrine to Santa Ines, Jesus.
Finally, below, the Cemetery:
I had the Nikon-1 converted after much frustration with IR-films. I do use IR-Sensitive Films and you’ll see some film tests coming soon.
Retrospectives are repostings of significant works from my old Photo Diary……….
And, some thought from yesterday’s Photo Diary on Windows and Walls……
Retrospective: Wyoming Thunderhead
On our Snowy Range Journey we saw this beautiful thunderhead to the east of us. Had to pull off and make the image. And since I had both of my Mamiya-7’s I have Portra 160 and SFX-200:
Retrospective: The Snowy Range, Wyoming
I have posted two earlier episodes, but have never explained what ‘Retrospective’ is about. I have a Photo Diary Blog. It shows what I am out and about doing, camera in hand. There’s a lot posted over there that my followers here will probably never see. So I am pulling out a ‘Best Of’ from that blog and calling it my Retrospective.
Planning a Twitter Film Photographer’s Meet up in south central Wyoming later this summer.
