Film Photo Friday No 22: Oxygen To Combust

Kodak's Ektar 100 is one of my favorite film stocks. Vivid and creamy no matter how cheap or janky the camera I use it in.

Like this one from a Holga 120N, for instance!

Film Photo Friday No. 21: Cenotaphs of the Big 3 No. 3

The aperture on this particular Lomography Diana F+ (I have a few of their branded ones along with a couple of the OG 1960's ones due to rescuing them when I find in the wild) tends to slip so the exposure is a bit dimmer than anticipated (because of not double-checking where it was set before I clicked the shutter.)

I kinda dig the muted tone on it though. I credit the Kodak Ektar 100 for that aspect of it.

Film Photo Friday 20: 29% Continents and Islands

A view of the world from a street in Raleigh, North Carolina. A city that has me scrimping, saving and downsizing for so I can move to it in the spring of 2020.

Film Photo Friday No. 12: Tavern Trinkets No. 1

The decor of watering holes is something that always catches my wandering eye when whatever other distraction finds a lull.

Film Photo Friday No. 10: El Rauncho

Their breakfast at this place was one of the legendary cheap "hangover cures" in the area. That was ages ago as the place has been long gone for a while now. How was the rest of their food? I never knew but figured there was more than just one reason why it was always (semi-lovingly) referred to as the El Rauncho.

Film Photo Friday No. 6: Light Station No 1

"What is there to see? What is there to do?"
"Have you ever seen the lighthouse?"

Yeah, that is a common conversation with people that visit my hometown. I've even seen it in altered states of reality.

Film Photo Friday No. 5: Orange's Yellow

This guy was lingering around our neighborhood for a few weeks. We could not take him in (we have three already and have plans in gear to move out of the state in the not too distant future. Finding a place to rent having three cats will probably be tricky enough. I imagine four would be a deal breaker for most landlords) but he was obviously someone's pet at one time. He was a super nice dude who loved to be sociable so we made sure to put food and water out for him on the porch and kept used to being around some friendly humans.

We did not see him for a couple of days so we figured he moved on. Then he showed back up and was roughed up and injured. We were not in a situation to help a stray out ourselves so I made a few calls to people who could. A rescue lady pulled some strings to get him into the county funded shelter even though they were full. She told me the shelter was now a no-kill and he would receive the best care available.

He is now better and up for adoption at the shelter. He will make someone an awesome friend.
