Hey June…

June in Sea-Town…

Found: Old 120 negative. Delta 400, I think… stuff from Mexico, and Steilacoom.

I got a pretty sweet deal on a second hand F3. Since I sold my F100 and the D100, it’s the only thing I can mount my lenses on. I like the F3. It’s compact, light, and handles like a tank. Don’t know if I should keep it, or sell it

TMAX on the F3:

N was really excited to see Jenny Lewis playing…

Then I decided to use a PanF on the m6 – these are random May leftovers

After the game, Martha parked her car in the International District… you can find super random stuff there… music coming out of this small place was just awesome.

Did I mention that Mariners lost? I guess I needed not make it clear.

…And time fot more Delta 100 on the F3

Le penseur…

So that’s it.

I am feeling much more into a colour mode now, so I will shoot more Ektar/Portra.

I have a pending photoshoot with a friend. I never do photoshoots, so I am a bit scared… more excited than scared, though…

I’ve been thinking many things lately… will probably elaborate on them one day… once I have enough time.

…for the time being, I think I’ve never been so well in my life. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for all the good things that come in small packages – or a sheet of paper – or a simple tick box.

Hope life catches you well!!
