That’s it for the roll of Portra. The following scans are all Ektar:
After following their work in one way or another for around four years, we had the pleasure of meeting the incredibly talented artist and blogger duo Jade and Cory. Suki wasn’t in the picture taking mood at the time, apparently.

Ok, from this point down, we’re no longer in Portland. Please excuse the misleading title of this post. =)
I borrowed a 21mm lens from a friend and shot a few frames with it with the Leica M3 this past week. Focusing with the rangefinder and composing with the hot shoe mounted viewfinder turned out to be a very interesting shooting experience:
The 21mm is really wide, so I couldn’t really use it for the whole roll. Switched back to my 50 Lux after a few frames:

I’ve been searching for a Leica M3 for a good long time, and got a fantastic deal from an original owner who purchased this beauty in Munich back in 1961. I couldn’t believe how well he cared for it. I loaded the first roll of film I could get my hands on and started shooting right away.
In the week since I got it, the camera has been everywhere with me, and I’m absolutely hooked! First roll is back from the lab, and I’ve posted a few frames from it below:
