Nearly four years of pocket lint had stopped my Pixel from charging. A little TLC with the slim hook tweezers and some compressed air, and we're back to normal charging.

Little behind on those found color film rolls. Not a lot of photos on them, but a few good ones to do some research on.

Amazingly, the shutter is in pretty good shape, the slow speeds not withstanding (as per the norm). For now it's going to work fine for some fun 4x5 portraits while I restore it's proper 5x7 camera it originally came from.

Sitting down and discussing printing and photography with Ctein yesterday was an absolute joy. I'm now sitting with some of his dye transfer prints that'll be hanging on my very own walls and they are truly excellence to behold.

Working on an old and rusted aperture in from a Bausch and Lomb lens for 5x7.

A pile of found C-41 color film of various shapes, sizes, and vintage. Let's grab the chemistry and see if any images are on them.

Barely made it to airport, but on plane. Let another day of travel begin.

Sticking to my cafe as home base on the road mantra. That, and my body has zero idea what timezone I'm in, so this is the only thing keeping me alive at this point.

Deep sorrow to hear of an old friend passing away today.

Night time laser tag with the kids. Shhhhhhh, I'm going stealth.

Inheriting film loaders with mystery film always sounds like fun until you expose a couple test rolls to find it's all been exposed to light. Time to load up some fresh rolls.

Watching the twins discover and enjoy Victorious and iCarly is priceless. Enjoyed them the first time around when Alli was their age, just as funny now.

Instant film is my stand-by for silly around the house photographs and just general fun. With the holidays in full swing, I've been running through packs like crazy.

Still have an unopened box of PX 100 Silver Shade. Amazing how far Impossible film has come. I still dig (and buy a lot) of their black and white.
