Remnants Of The Old Mission District

with 2 comments

L1000363

This post is a little bit of a throwback. Growing up in San Francisco, I was always fascinated by the old buildings in the Mission District, particularly the old theaters. I took these images in 2012. The city’s rapid gentrification made quick work of these beautiful but derelict structures, and most of what you see here is either gone or significantly altered today. The “New Mission” sign below? Yeah, that’ll stick around, after being refreshed and then squished right up against a massive luxury condo development.

A Big Win For San Francisco

with 3 comments

Well, there you have it. The Giants won the World Series with a 4 game sweep, and San Francisco went crazy! I observed the pandemonium from the back seat of a friend’s car, stuck in traffic in the city:

Go Giants!

…and go Suki! I tried to put a Giants hat on her here but she wouldn’t have it.

A Roll Of Ektar

with 14 comments

This week’s roll is Ektar 100, a fantastic color negative film that I ran through the M3. The Ektar sports some really fine film grain as well as fantastic color reproduction. Pretty happy with the film overall.

I’ve been getting a few questions about how I process and scan each roll. Simple answer? I take all my film to Light Waves Imaging, a full service professional lab here in San Francisco where I get all my film processed, scanned, and printed. I can even get very uncommon formats processed, like the 127 I shoot with my old Ansco. Their chemistry is spot on, and I’m always thrilled with the results I get from their services. Here are most of the shots from my latest roll of Ektar:
