Mele Kalikimaka

Every year at Christmas I head back home to Honolulu to celebrate the season with my family. Not much changes here, and I’m honestly not a fan of sunny 80 degree weather (a true Seattleite) but I miss the local food and deep green mountains of Manoa Valley.

Let’s See How Things Go

A little while ago I borrowed a friend’s Zero Image 4×5 camera to get a sense of whether or not 4×5 pinhole was something I would want to pursue. You see many, many months ago I had purchased a Calumet 4×5 with a wide lens and long rails at a really good price from a … Continue reading
