This week I made my first trip to Yosemite, along with my family. All I can say is Yosemite is even more spectacular than I could have hoped for.
Camera: Argus C3
Lens: Argus Cintar 50/3.5

Development: Rodinal, 1+50, 15 minutes
It was almost the perfect combination today. The light was beautiful and I somehow managed to convince Sam to stand still while I took his portrait. He has bed head and he’s wearing his PJs, but his smile is beautiful and genuine. He will be 2 years 9 months old next week, and I’m glad I can capture images like this because time just seems to be flying by.
I’ve been shooting a lot of film this year and developing the black & white myself. It has been a really fun and energizing process so far, and I’m looking forward to shooting more as the year wears on. This one was taken with a Contax G1 rangefinder on Fomapan 100 and stand developed in Rodinal 1+100 for 60 minutes.
Here’s another photo from days gone by. This photo was taken back in July, 2007, when I shot with model Liz Ashley from Texas. Sometimes it’s good to go back and give a second look to photos you overlooked before.
