Sprocket holes

Every now and then I like to load up the Holga with some 35mm film and shoot - since the image circle cast by the lens is meant for 120 film, it exposes all of the smaller film. The sprocket holes show. You either like it or hate it, I guess, and it's probably an effect best enjoyed in moderation.

You can buy a 35mm Holga, but if you buy the 120 version you get 35mm for free! Just follow the instructions at Squarefrog.

Inside Jinx's BBQ

Have a look inside Jinx's Pit's Top in Charlottesville. The walls are covered with various things, from old soda signs to newspaper clippings. An interesting place, and good food, too.

Half staff

Today's Project 365 pic is of flags flying at half staff in front of the Charlottesville airport. They're flying that way in the wake of the shootings in Tuscon. It's at 24mm with the fabulous Samsung TL350 (WB2000 elsewhere). It's an awesome little camera that shoots RAW, sports a 24-120mm lens which is f/2.4 at the wide end. It'll shoot 1080p movies, and it has a fun sweep panorama mode. I recommend it highly.

Project 365 gallery

OK, it took me a week to realize it is a waste of time for me to double-post Project 365 photos every day, so I'm going to stick with the other site. You can see my daily snapshots here.

Project 365: Day 2

Today's picture is the interior of Bodo's Bagels in Charlottesville. We brought a dozen over to a friend's house his morning. It's usually a lot busier, but I think everyone was in church.

Project 365: Day 1

The Yarmouth Photo Group is getting cranked up again, in form of the "one a day" Project 365. I've decided not to place any restrictions on myself, though I suspect I'll be getting to know my cell phone camera a little better. Here's entry number one, a familiar face you can all count on seeing much more of as the year progresses. Happy New Year!
