I've always loved the little waterfall at Hug Point. Sometimes it's raging, sometimes it's trickling, but it's always a rather magical spot.


Taken with a Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera.

The Wreck of the Peter Iredale, as seen by my Zero Image 2000... sometimes I think that my pinhole camera loves being at the ocean as much as I do.




I do, on rare occasion, take a picture of a person. On even rarer occasion, I might take a picture of myself.

3.5 minute film pinhole exposure, recorded between two tall buildings in Baltimore City.

Happy February 29th everyone. I have always been partial to this phenomenon, I guess because it happens in my birth month, and I am definitely partial to the month of February. Maybe too because of its infrequency, sort of similar to why I like the Olympic games so much, they happen so seldom. I wanted to post something that was more leap day-ish, but then I don't know exactly what that is. Heh. I will be carrying my cameras with me today though, so I will be keeping an eye and mind out for something that I can use the next time around. ;-)


Enjoy your extra day in February!

Though never subdued for long. Image made with my Zero Image 2000.

My heart is, anyway. Someday the rest of me will return, too.

Just across the Columbia from Astoria, Oregon. Zero Image shot for pinhole day.

There is nothing all that exciting about this one - but I love the colours and it has the feeling of endlessness that I love about a nice empty beach.

The Palouse is one of those places that I crave. Much like the ocean, though it consists of waves of grass rather than water. This was taken on a short trip out there last Spring. Yes... I'm just now getting around to posting it.


Shot with my Zero Image 2000 on, I believe, Ilford infrared film.

I am always a bit fascinated by the waterfall at Hug Point, which flows almost directly into the sea. It was here that I made some of my first memories of Oregon (along with my friend Julie and our host, Ara), on a trip that followed college graduation. I was hooked, of course... and four years later, I returned to stay for good.


Taken last summer with a Zero Image 200 pinhole.

One of the few images I ever made of the Keyhole before it collapsed and I made this with my pinhole. Nothing produces flare when shooting into the sun quite like a pinhole does. Plus not having to worry about a viewfinder (and damage to the eyes) is a big plus in a case like this too.

Its a beautiful sunny day in Seattle today, so I thought I'd upload something that fit the mood.

This is a reworking of an image I made in July 2014, using the Zero Image 6X9 Pinhole camera loaded with Rollei IR film and using the R72 opaque filter placed INSIDE the camera body. Scene was metered for 3 ASA!

One of the best sunsets I saw all of last year. Perhaps the only roll of film I put through my Zero Image 6x9 pinhole last year as well.

I'm moving this one up to the front of my stream to help bring attention to a fabulous low-fi photography magazine called Light Leaks. I've been reading the magazine for about a year and a half, and have made several submissions to their "themes". About a year ago I was contacted by the supervising editor and asked if I was interested in being one of the "featured artists" for a future pinhole issue.


My answer, of course, was a resounding YES.


One year later finds me in a state of very excited anticipation regarding Issue 15 - The Pinhole Issue. Especially when I received another email - this one letting me know that one of my images would actually be on the cover. I think I squealed like a little girl that night.


I wanted to wait to share this image again until I actually had the magazine in my hands (it went to print late last week), but since I'm leaving tomorrow on a short vacation (also terribly exciting - will be seeing U2 in concert for the first time!), it will be at least Thursday before I am able to check my mailbox again, and I just couldn't wait that long. So some of you will be seeing this issue long before I do, and if you do - tell me how things are looking. :-)


Oh, and if you visit Light Leaks' Twitter site, you'll find a sneak peak of the cover on their background.




Original post:


Last week on the way home from work I took a quick side trip out the the"original" pumpkin patch on Sauvie's Island. The road out to the patch was wet and muddy with another storm threatening to move in above. Needless to say, I was the only one out there... which was perfect. I found a pumpkin to hold and set up my pinhole for a two minute exposure, then raced out in front of it and waited. It's a good thing it wasn't a longer exposure... halfway back to my car the skies opened up and the deluge began! I left Sauvie's Island wet but happy.


Taken with my Zero Image, with film that was later cross processed.

San Francisco bay

I figured this would be a good counterpart to my image from this morning. Only a couple of short months til this will be rolling around again.


Not much else to say. After that long write up on Charlie and his Vietnam photography I am drained of words.... for a day or two, at least.

This is not a picture from Ireland. However, having received back all my film and scans from Ireland, I am pretty impressed with a number of the pinhole images. This happens frequently - I get caught up concentrating on my Hasselblad images, and neglect the kinds of things that my simple, beaten down, scratched but still beautiful pinhole camera can do.


And of course, this is Latourell Falls, in the Columbia River Gorge.

The sea said goodbye to the shore so the sun wouldn't notice

The sea it wrapped its arms around you


I'm grateful to be able to live the kind of life where, in a month's span, I'm able to photograph deep forests, snow-swept hillsides, bouquets of blooming flowers and rather epic-looking coastlines. I'm grateful, really, that I live the kind of life that allows me to photograph at all, to have the time and energy and funds (sometimes) to enjoy this life that is unfolding around me, every day.


The lyrics above, by the way, are from a song called "Sloom" by the group Of Monsters and Men. I'm also exceedingly grateful to say that I'll be experiencing this group perform live tonight, at a sold-out concert, signing songs I've come to love.


This image was made with a Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera, along the cliffs near Neahkahnie Mountain, a few weeks back.

Two birds in the shape of swallows

vanished during the making

of this picture. The birds were taking

their time, warbling low over the wheat

that bent its head, the route they took

towards the hills marked by a short

twitter and a longer trill.


Had they known to stay still

I'd have caught them on film,

but with heartbeats that raced faster

than my own, I knew better

than to force their lives

to fit the pace of mine.


And so this picture remembers

wheat and hills and sun but not

the birds. Let this be a lesson

in how not to merely vanish

from the Earth: slow down, stay

in one place long enough to know

you'll be remembered. Leave something

of yourself: an image or a story

or just a few words, maybe about

two birds, and strung together

like so: so the world

will know.




Taken with my Zero Image 2000, somewhere in the Palouse of Southeastern Washington.


This is what it looked like, just a couple of weeks ago, no sight of spring yet....

Some of the ice is gone now, some is still there. It is still freezing at night.....

The Wreck of the Peter Iredale at Fort Stevens leans persistently into the ocean, as if wanting to return. I am sure that it will, in small pieces, over time.


Taken at sunset with my Zero Image 2000 pinhole. I loved the red-orange glow along the side of the wreck and the deep blues that were coming into play all around it.

much thanks to Ray for his feedback and help with exposure times, and for his general coolness...

This image was taken some time ago, but I've resisted the urge to post it (though I love it) until now. Don't ask me why; my choice in posting photos is rarely influenced by a single force.


This particular night I remember well, and if I close my eyes I can still feel the wind on my face, the water around my ankles (for you should never come home from the beach with dry shoes), and the clouds streaming across a blue blue sky. I can recall walking down this beach slowly, into the waves, out of the waves, clamboring around the Peter Iredale wreck, working my way through a roll of film on pinhole.


And to cap it all off, the final moments at these shores consisted of this shot, holding oh-so-still for two minutes. With that kind of a scene spread out before your eyes, two minutes can hold the wishes and dreams of an entire lifetime yet to live.
