101 Monroe Street - Holga 120mm





101 Monroe Street = the yellow house in Radford, Taylor in the new river, Cathedral at the Zocalo in Mexico City, Kids playing soccer in the rain Mexico City, Andrea and I at Teotihuacan, Myself at Teotihuacan. Im going to make a silent promise here, no longer will I have anyone else develop or print my photos if they are black and white... a darkroom set up is a top priority for this winters list of projects. I cant stand seeing how digitized these pictures become after the developing company scans the negatives for quick, easy, low quality prints. Proof - its hard going from having a darkroom to trusting someone else to do a good job with your stuff. Self sufficiency is a goal.

totally dude.
with film it's ALL about the PROCESS.
Best of luck with setting up your first darkroom! can't wait to see the products. I love the image of the person in the lake.

I'm a fan of the holga. :) Nice pics and I don't blame you for not wanting your work printed commercially! (Good for you.)

Very nice photos. I would love to have a dark room. Although it would probably be a good idea to learn how to process them. lol

Diggin' the photos, Wes! Also hear you about the darkroom--so much better when you can develop your work to your own liking.
