Mark Rhoads lost his job as a journeyman stagehand when his eyesight degraded so much he couldn’t work. While he waits through the months-long process to get disability payments, he’s making ends meet by playing his hard-worn Sigma guitar on Denver’s 16th Street Mall. Taken with my Konica Auto S2 rangefinder camera, which I wrote about this weekend.
Another Fuji Provia slide film shot that really, REALLY came out spectacularly. It’s just seconds after sunset and I underexposed it about 2/3 stop. This is almost exactly as it came out of the camera (but less dusty); I didn’t mess with the color at all. Love, love, love this film.

These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations. The photographs and captions are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color.
This blog entry is from last year, but it’s enjoying a resurgence we thought we would share.
I -love- these images.
