Too many things going on and I’ve neglected the blog. Here are a few things from the past month.

In my mad rush to pack due to last minute schedule changes, I left the charger to the GXR at home. Film will have to wait until I return to have things developed so I am left with the iphone camera. “The best camera is the one that’s with you”

charity auction 'black paint' miniature Trip35

I’d like to thank Bellamy and Japan Camera Hunter for this opportunity to raise money to help those in the Tohoku area of Japan. A thank you to all those that placed a bid and donated to the cause on their own. This one-of-a-kind prototype is off to Japan to the generous donor/winner.

Thank you

prototype: black-paint mini trip35

The Olympus Trip35 has a special place in my heart since it was the first camera I was allowed to shoot with on my own. Inherited from my grandfather who passed away twenty years ago. Unfortunately the camera was lost somewhere in the family home and when I returned to shooting with film, quickly sought one out for myself.

***This miniature’s parts move like the original, including; shutter-button, film advance, film rewind, lens, open back. Cast in brass with palladium/silver plating, hand-lacquered, heat-treated resin, 100% hand-crafted

This miniature of the Trip35 is a tribute to my grandfather and the beginnings of my passion for photography.

I have made one prototype black-paint version of this miniature camera that will not go into production. This is the only one. I will auction this for charity to aid tsunami/earthquake relief in Japan with the help of my friend Bellamy Hunt @ Japan Camera Hunter.
