Sharing a Reel with Karen

2

An analogue pursuit shared by two people cut the distance between La Palma in the Canary Islands and Barcelona in Spain.

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve known Karen through Flickr. One day I discovered her wonderful photographs, the many different reels she used and the astonishing colors these produced.

Following her Flickr was all for entertainment.

But on another day, I was just jumping from Flickr to Flickr until I ended up viewing some incredible pictures of the MACBA in Barcelona, which, curiously, were hers.

I knew that she lived in the Canary Islands and I noticed that the photos were of Barcelona, so I had to ask.

Soon we decided to share a reel.

She wandered through the beautiful places hidden in the island of La Palma while I walked through my favorite places in Barcelona, both of us snapping photos along the way.

The experiment was a success. I can only tell Karen that it was a pleasure.

    Taking Close-Up Photos with the Petzval Lens and a Pentacon Six

    A Petzval Lens fit for medium format would be amazing, but unfortunately there isn’t an adapter by Canon for the Pentacon Six. The distance between the film and lens also doesn’t leave much room for experimentation, and only close-up shots are possible.

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
