  • Dusky mums Nikon F2AS, 55mm f/2.8 Micro-Nikkor Kodak Ektar 100 2015 These are more of a muted purple in real life, but I like how this photo turned out anyway.

  • Tennessee mountain flowers on Kodak Ektar 100

    While I was in the Smokies in September, I took a couple hours to myself and walked down and back up the hill with my Nikon N2000 and my 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5 Zoom Nikkor lens, with Kodak Ektar 100 inside. I shot all sorts of things on my walk, but I can seldom resist photographing flowers before I pass…

  • Summer flowers on Kodak Ektachrome E100G

    For my birthday this year my mom bought me a bunch of new flowering plants for my front garden. She did most of the work planting them, too. What a nice gift! I so enjoy walking through my garden for a minute before I get in the car to go to work. I pull off a…

  • “Route 66” Coreopsis Nikon F2AS, 50mm f/2 AI Nikkor Arista 100 EDU (expired) 2015 Really, that’s what these red and yellow flowers are called. Check it out.

  • Bold lilies Nikon F2AS, 50mm f/2 AI Nikkor Arista 100 EDU (expired) 2015 Sometimes a forgotten roll of film comes with an old camera I buy. I always shoot those rolls, but it’s a roll of the dice: I could score, or I could crap out. I scored with this roll.

  • Favorite Photos Week: Early spring crocus

    I wonder how many photographers can remember the moment when the bug hit. I can: this was it. I had been shooting film on my early road trips, but processing costs were killing me. I figured that an inexpensive digital camera would save me a bundle over time. I chose the affordable Kodak EasyShare Z730 for…

  • You probably wouldn’t do the things you say you’d do if only you had more time

    The tiger lilies and the phlox in my front garden always bloom last. Their annual emergence is my sure sign summer is here. The days on either side of solstice are my favorite time of year. The days last so long, with 15 hours of glorious daylight. It’s usually temperate in Indiana, with highs in the 70s…

  • Flowers marking the passage of spring

    A woman named Verna built my home and lived in it for more than 30 years. My neighbor tells me that a few years before she fell ill and died, she landscaped the yard. The house became a rental for several years after that, and her beds got little love from tenants. When I moved in,…
