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.
Medium-format photos from the Southwest
In April, I took a road trip through the Southwest with Katchabird and took along a bunch of cameras. I had a wonderful time and got some good frames, like this one looking back down at the entrance road in Colorado National Monument.
I used Kodak Portra 160 film in my Yashica-D TLR camera for these. I already loved the camera; these just made me love it more.
TOTO played at Denver Day of Rock last night. It was pretty awesome.
This week on Putting a Roll Through: Eight images from my most recent camera acquisition, the Kodak Baby Brownie Special.
Another of my Bakelite Beauties, the Kodak Baby Brownie Special (photos and details on mine) is an upgrade from the standard Baby Brownie.
The Mar-Crest toy camera
Love this little bakelite beauty from a local antique mall, though she’s more of a looker than a shooter. I wrote all about it and posted more example photos on my site.
On Oct. 13, 2011, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper announced that Occupy Denver demonstrators must not camp in Lincoln Park near the state Capitol and that the park’s 5 a.m.-11 p.m. open hours must be respected. That evening, after numerous requests by Colorado State Patrol for protesters to leave the park and many opportunities to end the tense situation without a standoff, arrests, or any other unpleasantness, police were finally forced to evict the demonstrators forcibly.
