The Mamiya Tries Colour

We took a walk around the Forks and I tried my new Mamiya C3 using my colour filters to make a colour image from the three black and whites. I was impressed with how it turned out. The day wasn’t terribly great being rather bland and overcast. The only issue seams to be horizontal lines […]

A New to Me Camera

I did break down after doing some research and oohing and ahing over a few cameras. In the end I decided on a Mamiya C3. The big selling point was that I could buy other lenses down the line. I also like that it had a larger crank for advancing the film than the C2. […]

Ghostly Walk in Esprit Des Bois

We took a walk around Winnipeg’s Exchange district. It is a great location with beautiful architecture and an interesting history. not only is it remembered as being the location of the General Strike of 1919, but is home to ghost signs – old advertisements painted onto the sides of buildings that have been there for […]

A Sundae with Planes

A Sunday walk took us out to Assiniboine Park again and we adventured out to the Air Force Heritage Park that was not too far away. I struggle both with good exposure … And with developing this roll of film as half of if suffered from streaks. That or my lens was really dirty. -KMSB

Geese and Hay Bales

It came to Canada with him and to the logging camps where he worked for a year before earning the right to bring […]

Grotto of Our Lady of Lourde

A drive out of town had us stop in Cooks Creek where one of the churches hosts a grotto to Our Lady of Lourde. It was a challenging place to take pictures and it forced me to realize that I have a tendency to take my black and whites while still thinking in colour. I […]

Ghostly Landmarks

This roll of film took us to St. Norbert, just south of Winnipeg’s Perimeter Highway (Apparently Winnipeg is one of few cities on the continent that doesn’t have a highway proper going through the city, who knew?). St. Norbert used to be far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis that the […]

A House Fit for a Witch

This roll of film was taken at the park close to us, Kildonan Park. It will pop up often in my rolls of film as it is close, scenic and a beautiful place to practice and work on my photography skills. I may not be great now, but I will be! -KMSB
