84810001I knew I was taking a chance when I continued taking photos with my old Brownie as darkness fell at the Riverside County Fair and with 100 speed film no less. It’s true, the results did turn out to be a mixed bag but I do kind of like this one. (Photo taken with a vintage Brownie Hawkeye box camera (lens flipped) and Kodak Professional Ektar 100 Color Negative Film.)

84710004I’ve already posted several photos here from my visit to the Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival back in February most of them Polaroids. I liked those images just fine until I got my Fujichrome Velvia 100F slide film developed. Not only do I love how this beautifully vivid film and colorful subject matter complement each other but the flipped lens on my old Brownie Hawkeye adds a dreamy effect I quite like, too.

saguaro2.jpgOne of my favorite buildings in Palm Springs, the Saguaro hotel, as seen through the flipped lens of my vintage Brownie Hawkeye box camera. This photo was taken with Fujichrome Velvia 100F slide film which I discovered recently, quite by accident, and now can’t imagine doing without. I’ve always been a huge fan of technicolor and I’m pretty sure this beautifully vivid film is as close as I’m gonna get. Here’s hoping it’s never discontinued!

foundart4.jpgAnother look at the back of the sign featured in yesterday’s post. Maybe it’s because I’m a fan of assemblage, collage or any kind of art that incorporates found objects but I really do find this sort of thing to be visually appealing. :-)

signh.jpgI stumbled upon a really cool sign when I was out exploring Desert Center not too long ago and tried in vain to get a decent photograph of it. Unfortunately, the sun was starting to go down and the late-afternoon light was illuminating the back of the sign. So here is a very close look at that! :-)
