A Look Back | Hualapai Ranch

These photos were shot almost seven years ago during a trip to Grand Canyon West. Our cabin was located farthest from the dining hall, so we had to take a short walk before and after meals. On the way back to the cabin, we took a longer route and wandered around the ranch.

Photos were shot with a Lomo LCA on MW Gekko.

A Look Back | Grand Canyon West in Color

These photos were shot almost 7 years ago during a trip to Grand Canyon West. I was planning to experience Skywalk, but I could not get over my fear of heights. It was still a great trip, I enjoyed being away from the city, and was more than happy to just walk around and take photos.

Shot with Horizon 202 on Kodak Gold 100.

2018 | A Showcase of Floats

My first photography outing for 2018 was the Tournament of Roses’ Showcase of Floats. After work, I hurriedly went home to grab my cameras, then my nephews and I took the train to Pasadena.

The Tournament of Roses also known as the Rose Parade is held in Pasadena on New Year’s Day or January 2, (if New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday). The main stars of the parade are the elaborately designed, flower-covered floats. This year’s theme was Making A Difference. After the parade, the floats are put on display and for a fee, people can see them up close.

All photos taken with CV Bessa R4M with Color Skopar 21/F4 on Kodak Ektar 100

2017 | Hill Aerospace Museum

We spent about 20 minutes looking at the aircraft display outside Hill Aerospace Museum. We were pressed for time and needed to get back on the road again. I could only manage to shot a few frames.

2017 | Jackson Hole, Wyoming

2017 | Yellowstone in Color

I prefer to shoot B&W, but Yellowstone’s landscape offers a beautiful color palette of blue skies, warm yellow grass, green trees, and turquoise colored spring water. It deserved to be shot in color.
