Ziplines

Part of the continuing birthday celebrations with my mom.

These are the ziplines at my work so I’ve been able to be up there a few times, one of the perks I suppose.  This was the first time I took my still camera over the canyons.

Jeep tours 2018, Super 8 edition, Part II

More screenshots from this Summer’s film processing.  I do it as cheaply as possible but the costs do add up.  Leaving the film out of it the total for me was still somewhere around $600 for 30min of footage.

Great memories, though, and hopefully I will get that documentary made at some point.

Jeep tours 2018, Super 8 edition, Part I

This is the remainder of the Super 8 film that I shot, this was Summer of 2018 (plus one roll from last Summer) and I haven’t really used my movie cameras much since.  Processed by Spectra Film and Video, scanning by Nicholas Coyle Film and Video.

A collection of coworkers.

Old cars, etc.

Because again, in Colorado and the Southwest, there are a lot of them.

The first is my pastor’s old Chevy that he’s been working on for the last few years.  The others are at the place I was recently staying, the owner is a big fan of vintage Willys and Plymouth vehicles.  There will probably be plenty more on this in the future.  I hope Jim Grey approves!

Schoolroom shenanigans

It took almost 7 years when I started going back to college, but I did finally graduate.  I have a lot of memories, and also a lot of degrees…because I ended up getting a double minor (in visual arts emphasis on photography, and film studies).  But through it all I had my camera, especially since the first class I took was Intro to Photography, all the way back in Fall of 2013.  So here is a rather large gallery of memories, with many classmates I’ve known over my time at UCCS; I forget the names of some of them!

I don’t expect anyone else to get anything out of this, it’s more a self-indulgent nostalgia trip for me than anything.  Some of these were never published, some have been posted to Facebook only.  Thanks for the memories…

Scout

I just found out one of our drivers died recently.  He was a new guy, started back in 2019.

I don’t know that I have many pictures of him, though there is a 4×5 shot that I took right before we were closing down for COVID-19.  I got it developed but never had a chance to get it scanned.  The pic above was taken in May or June 2020 right after we opened back up after shutdown, the pic below is from Territory Days in 2019, I don’t even know that he had hired on with us yet but he certainly looked the part.


Tri-X in the Spotmatic, but you’ve seen it before so I wasn’t going to tag it again.

RIP, Scout.
