Light and Shadow

This roll of 35mm was taken when a travelling show came to the Exhibition Grounds just outside Winnipeg – Lovingly called the Winnipeg-Ex … like so many of my ex-partners … given that they all lived in Winnipeg of course. On that note, onto the photos. -KMSB

Feeling 35

Now that I have caught up on my 120format film, I have taken the time to scan in the film I took using a Zeiss Ikon Contessa that I picked up when I first decided to get back into film a year or so ago. The images I took with this beautiful rangefinder were more […]

Lost Roll of the C3

I had issues loading my film again in the C3. The back didn’t close properly and the counter reset itself after only two images. I thought I had figured out how far to turn the crank per image, but it turns out I was way off. I took notes for six images, but in reality, […]

Oak Hammock Marsh

With the snow settling in we took a trip to Oak Hammock Marsh. Not only was it a lovely day for a walk, but we took some lovely pictures. I am finding that I still struggle with thinking in black and find my images lack good contrast, geometry, or deep shadows. Thankfully, the Marsh isn’t […]

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

This roll takes us back to Assiniboine Park and out to Winnipeg’s floodway. The Bales made for great textured shots in black and white. -KMSB

Return of the Voigtlander

I had had some troubles with my mum’s Voigtlander Brilliant from the start. The camera was first my grandfather’s who bought it in the displaced persons camp in Germany after the war. It came to Canada with him and to the logging camps where he worked for a year before earning the right to bring […]
