Another Place & Time: Arizona Monastery

This winter I visited my parents in Casa Grande, Arizona. They took me one sunny afternoon to visit St Anthony’s Monastery where Greek Orthodox monks work and pray. The desert grounds are dotted with palm trees, olive groves and orange trees; almost like Italy (or Greece, I guess!) but actually America.

The sky was very blue that day and the sun strong, which made for nice contrast in these black and white images.

Brownie Hawkeye Maui Edition

You might have noticed, I like photography. All the photos on this blog are my own. Either created in the lovely natural light of my apartment or taken somewhere on the road, usually outside of Canada and occasionally somewhere on the lower mainland.

I recently rediscovered an old camera of my dads; a cool little bakelite box, the Brownie Hawkeye. After doing some reading I decided to load up some 120 film and shoot off a roll. I didn’t bother to clean any part of the camera thinking that I want to see what 50+ years of dust and history looks like. While I was happy enough with those first shots, doing this gave me some insight into the toy camera, its focal distance and exposure. Armed with a bit of knowledge, I decided to take it apart, clean it and flip the lens. Flipping the lens resulted in images with a softer, ethereal feel and a very sweet, defined focal point. I captured the following Maui moments with the next roll of film.
