About My Blog

Here you can find work in progress, Holga photos, travel photos, snaps from around town and, occasionally, ones from the file boxes that have never found a spot to call home. The nice thing about a blog is that I can show you new work in a less formal fashion than on my web page. I post on a regular basis, so check back. You can follow me on Instagram @ jonnycakes7

When I visit Mom in SoCal I like to take an early morning walk. 
I usually carry a camera and my trusty iPhone. These are a 
few things that caught my eye while wandering.
These three photos were made on the phone with the Hipstamatic app.
Simple subjects!

In the process of “decluttering” my work area I found a strip of five negatives.
Two had red X’s across them. This was one of them. Two competitors in the 2003
world disc games. I have forgotten where they were from?

Gloomy Tuesday

Natural Bridges yesterday morning. I was biking by and saw that the
beach was almost empty. This lonely lifeguard tower caught my eye.

Two of the water tanks on the Chinquapin fireroad, UCSC.

More from Winter 2023, Highway 1, near Moss Landing/Castroville.
I’ve always loved these roadside signs.
I posted iPhone versions of similar photos March 2023. I like these black
and white Holga photos better!

I found a couple of forgotten contact sheets and negative files from Winter
 2023 when I was “unclattering” my work area. Alice at Waddell Creek.
 Made with a plastic Holga 120N and the always dependable Tri-X 400.
