Every once and a while someone will ask me what I’m working on or “how is the photography going?” Well, since you asked, I’ve been printing (in the darkroom), toning, spotting and hand coloring a series of Holga photos from Spain and Portugal. I plan to have them up on my web site in the next couple of months. This photo, made in Parque Del Buen Retiro, Madrid, is a preview.

If you haven’t been to my website (www.jonkerseyphotography.com) recently check it out! I have a new Holga series up under the “new work” heading.

Just back from a trip to Oahu where I focused my photographic attention on Waikiki Beach. I'll be posting some photos from the trip as I develop the film, make contact sheets and edit the images. Meanwhile, today's photo was made with Holga 120S. Printed on a newish photo paper, Ilford MG ART 300. It's a beautiful paper for Holga images. It's super textured, making it excellent for hand coloring. I took the photo last year on Waikiki Beach and hand colored it recently.

It was his first triathlon. Nervous and excited, he'd lost 70 pounds training.

After nearly a week of frosty mornings I started thinking of warmer places. I recently printed and hand colored this Holga photo. It was taken last fall, along Route 44, on the Dominican Republic's southwest coast. It helps to warm me up!

Here's one from a box on the shelf.

The two or three regular followers of this blog probably noticed that I haven't posted in awhile. Usually, that means I'm off somewhere making photos and having a good time. Unfortunately, that's not the case this time. I tweeked my neck a few weeks ago and finally had to stop everything. No camera lugging, darkroom working or photoshopping (not to mention no surfing and no biking). Happily, I enjoy reading on the couch. Anyway, I'm on the mend and hope to be back to regular photo activities soon. In the meantime, you have "Kites". I took this a few years ago at a kite flying contest and only recently printed and hand colored it.

This is a photo I made for "Photo a Day" way back in 2008. I recently made a nice print and applied some Marshall's photo coloring pencils and paint. The bits of color punch things up a little and draw attention to the chalk drawings on the asphalt.

I was sitting at my desk Saturday, waiting for the rain to ease up so I could go out and make some photos. I've had this umbrella photo around in a couple of forms for more years than I care to say. Sometimes this happens. I'm undecided. Should I go further with this? Well, Saturday I was doodling and finally finished the photo (for now). And yes, the umbrella was pink!
