Montgomery & Sutter
San Francisco, CA
This one is a bit of a cheat. This whole photoblog was supposed to only be black & white street photos, shot on film. "Life is/in Analog." Get it? Well this is a digital photo. I've been slow on...well, everything...but especially on developing and scanning negs. I'm slowly catching up. Emphasis on slowly.

You know, I've been shooting a lot still, a lot of street stuff. Given that I have a desk job in the heart of Downtown SF that's about all I have time to shoot right now. And I've even been shooting a lot of it in black & white. But I've been slow in developing and scanning. I want to get contact sheets made. I've got about 100 rolls that need contact printing. Seriously. And I still have about 20 rolls that need to be developed. This weekend maybe.
But looking over my Flickr account I haven't even uploaded any new black & white (film) shots since August. That's lame. There are plenty of digital photos -- bands and street photos.
Anyway, here's an old one I rediscovered. To me it has a sort of very old, classic feel to it, but it's just not quite there. Being closer, or a different angle or something would've made it a really great shot. As it is I think it's just good, flawed though.
I will actually be posting more in the near future. I swear.

I guess if you're reading this you probably know about the (current) big-daddy of Photo Blogs, Rob Haggert's A Photo Editor. It started as a great and much-needed (or at least appreciated) inside look at the Photo Editor's world. A real treat for photographers and other editors alike. Instructive in so many ways. Since leaving the office-life, Haggert has kept the blog up, commenting more on trends in editorial and commercial photography. He also often shines light on other photo blogs.
Today's little gem is the photoblog by David Burnette called We're Just Sayin. If you've been around politics at all, in anyway, and seen an older guy lugging around an old Speed Graphic camera, you've seen Burnette in action. His thoughts and insight into covering the biggest events of the day are like candy to someone like me who can't get enough of the inside, behind-the-curtain going ons of the PJ world. It's a wordy blog, lots to chew on, with a handful of photos. Good reading for a slow day at work, you know?

So I have a pile of about two dozen rolls of film waiting to be developed. Just moved, still getting situated in the new place. Plus, you know, I don't have a great set-up right now for developing. Thus, I tend to wait until I have a bunch to do, grab a slow Sunday and knock 'em all out. Then there's the scanning.
Anyway, just a quick note to let the three people who check this that it's not dormant.
Hell, maybe I'll actually start posting photo-related crap on here, turn it into more than just a picture blog. Sitting at work, I'm bombarded by a number of good photographers site, photo essays, books, blogs, etc. I'd be happy to share.
