Dedicated to the One I Photographed

OK, this is it, the big black & white film thing. I shot these pictures on Fujifilm ACROS 100 with a Bessa R3A rangefinder camera. The experience was close to religious. I hope to improve on my technique and I hope that anyone who looks at these images can share in my love of the monochrome image making process. Well, enough with the time consuming chit-chat... let's look at the pictures.

Welcome to Yokosuka Chuo train station

This is where we take a chance on love, or a least a chance on having a nice day.

The beginning of a life time friendship.

Or, maybe a game of umbrella swordsmanship.

Shochu! ready to pour.

Watering hole

I'll write you a poem, you smile and we'll say, come fly away...

When evening turns dark.

Of course, work never stops for some people.

Yonegahama... where the one I love called home.

A rainy day in Chuo!

Dry docks number 1 & 2... a lot of history here.

History comes in many forms and faces.

The long and winding road.

There is nothing like a live performance to bring it all together.

I've got a lot to learn about this black & white film thing and I'm so happy to have started the journey.

For today it's enough to share my happiness.

Some people say, "it's all good"... I say "people are good"; and that' s enough.

Thanks for stopping by!
