Winter was cold. There were a couple of days of snow. The car slipped in the snow. Finding a spot to park is complicated in Capitol Hill. N got here before we had planned it, and it was awesome. I have the most awesome manager ever. I don’t really like my car, so I’ll swap it soon enough. Vancouver is pretty when the sun comes out. My mentor is the person that knows how this place works… from A to B. Haven’t spoken that much to parents; no news is good news. Good news is even better. I wish I could afford all the toys I want. The lifeboat laptop just got an awesome battery. This blog post.
(This is a tribute)
This is a film entry.
It had been a while since I used my F100. Amazing body… super tight, and a shutter solid as a rock. No big deal here. The F100 and the M6.
Delta 400 – m6
Can’t remember where this was
After Steilacoom, I put the M Motor on, and misplaced the base plate. Contacted the US offices, and the replacement part was like US$350.
I was bitching about losing it when Paula said she had found something similar in his apartment. I tied loose ends, and remembered that I put the baseplate on the pocket of my jacket, which I took off that day during a dinner Paula hosted.
Paula found the baseplate of my M6, and I took her picture… she’s cool
Paramount Theatre — good venue
Ghosts at PF Chang’s
Kermit making funny expressions
Typical Capitol Hill lamp post
Windows – metering experiment
View from the Needle
Weird light coming from the horizon
Using a telescope with the M6. This was cool
Pizza – lonely night

Yours truly through the good ol’ trusty CV 35mm f1.4

Late night, post dinner… everyone on their own world

Dressing rooms – Anthropologie. I still can’t get over the “Girl Power” I felt there. Definitely a no-man’s land.
Waiting for the night bus
Sleeping guy at Barnes and Noble
Kermit paying for his lunch. Trying to play with shadows
Kermit and his little self hanging from the rearview mirror
Ektar 100 – This was shot on the F100. For 17mm you need the full frame to use it properly. No d700 for me for now. Maybe some time in the future.
I think this is where Nath lives. Reminds me of a cylinder.
Hardcore 57R337. (Wolf, B., 2008)

I went downtown with René and proceeded to document his day. It was fun.
“Downtown is too far to walk; I take the bus”
“Let’s have a bite”
Not sure what he was having for lunch
Looking for the perfect emo t-shirt… tight and dark

So the Twilight guy is in the cover.
Nothing really brilliant. Had lots of fun, though. Should do that with my friends more often.
Dirty apartment chandelier
N posing on the bridge
The flowers by the window. LOVE this frame.
The flowers at 1.4 using the 85.
Portra NC400 pushed +1.
This is the m6. I wanted colour for St. Patrick’s day. Only had a 400 so I decided to push it 1 stop. The results are not thaaat bad, but I wouldn’t do it again unless forced to.
Girl with dreads… her dreads were super cool
Booze –> Friendship
Julie with a funny expression talking with Pablits
Moni taking the photo of some random dudes; I was giving her shit for so doing.

Leaving the bar. Outside, smokers.
Another lamp post.
So that’s about it. I’m happy… things seem to be working out fine.
I will upload the digi-frames soon.
Hope life catches you well…
