A World in Isolation Project

Earlier this year, I learned about a project where two people each shoot one roll of film. It was all put together by some very clever person or people at aworldinisolation.com. The person I got connected with agreed that each of us would shoot a roll and send to the other. He shot black and white and sent to me, I shot colour and…

Spring Shots | Canon A1 | Ektar 100

Around the middle of March I tried to find a good place to shoot the new Champlain bridge on the island side, but wasn’t able to find a spot.

It still amazes me that I’m able to have a photographic idea, set it up, put it into action, and then see that idea come to fruition all in the space of a few short hours. Being able to develop at home gives me that means to find out whether I’m right or wrong almost immediately. That means that I can then take what…
