So I had an old friend come to visit and I had to get out the camera as anyone would. I put some colour film through a Holga. I am in a little effort to go *all Holga all the time* . . . this little plastic camera makes taking late night snapshots more fun . . . more fun is always better than less fun.
When people from away visit Newfoundland they inevitably love it. The natural beauty that exists is very real and very powerful. It is always a treat to drag a tourist to the top of the hill and it makes for fun photography.
Another fun session premise is the person living away. The promise of a life with less financial struggle has lured many a Newfoundlander away from home. A print on the wall from a photo session here can offer a very personal reminder of home.
My photography related goal for the next year is to do as many of these sessions as possible. I may one day grow bored of the setting . . . but I doubt it . . .
A new day another blog on the web . . . while I would never be brazen enough to ask any of you to devote a few minutes of your day to reading my thoughts, I do hope to post just enough photos and stories to make you want to read. If I can cause any of you to want to see what I am up to then I have done well.
My plans here include posting snippits of recent sessions, along with various personal photography experiments and fun. Perhaps even a profound thought here and there.
I will start off with a sample from my most recent purchase . . . a shutter release cable for my Holga . . . the box says I can ow do long exposure/night shots and such. I say I can now do Holga self-portraits.
All photos will display larger with a simple click.

Who am I? What am I about?
I am a photographer living in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. I have kids and love kids and specialize in kids, but will shoot anyone so long as they are not getting married.
Displaying a preference for tangible things I embrace film and old cameras and toy cameras and use the computer to only share my work, not make it. I spend my free time and my work time in my darkroom and I do not consider it a successful day unless the children are happy and my fingers smell like fixer.
