It's a new Layout! BIRDIES!

Hello Hello!

Welcome back for more strange pictures taken with crappy cameras!
I've taken a liking to the Kodak 400CN B&W 35mm film.
Our film technology has advanced leaps and bounds since the original production of Belomo Vilias.
It almost compensates for how inefficient my machines are. (almost)

Speaking of inefficient machines. I recently broke down and purchased a Zenit 3M!
It's a real old Russian SLR originally produced from 1962 up to 70.
It's based off of a camera that's a copy of the popular Leica II's.
Which means it's a copy of a copy of a Leica. It's also alot cheaper. ^_^
I'm pretty excited!...but I must be patient. It's flying all the way from the Ukraine.
It won't be here anytime soon....

oh anyway! some pictures!
Some are from the new Highline park in Manhattan. Some are from the Met museum and even from a merrill lynch building that I visit for work every tuesday.
The subway car shot was a fun experiment. We were on the first cart going forward.
I squeezed my camera against the tinted window. Then I held the aperture open for 10, 12 seconds as we emerged out from the tunnel into the next station. And despite the window being tinted, I thought it came out quite nice.
There are also some pictures that are a mystery as to where I took them...that's not surprising is it? meeeh well what can ya do?

I hope you enjoy your stay here!

About Me

My photo
In search of myself, I flew across the country from New Jersey to Los Angeles. The universe brought me to the gates of an Ashram on top of a mountain. The mother center of Self Realization Fellowship in Mount Washington, CA. One week later I am employed as a tree pruner and gardener at the mother center. The path to finding oneself is a peculiar one. This is a record of my spiritual observations through nature and life while employed as an Ashram Gardener.
