YYC Street Shooting - Stampede Friday

Totally unrelated to the photos in this post, but I feel like I want to petition MacDonalds to sell a Bacon McFlurry. Don't thank me yet, this doesn't exist.

Anyways, back to the photos. Took my new (to me) Olympus XA rangefinder out for a spin on Friday night with Cody, Megan, and Chris, and ran a couple rolls of B&W film through it. This little cam is awesome - compact sliding case, fully coupled rangefinder, and a nice Zuiko fixed 35mm f/2.8 lens. We are going to have many street ninja adventures together...

This dude was fascinated by my Rollei, so I let him play around with it. Meanwhile, his female friend (I presume signficant other) impatiently stalked off. Gotta love this guy's priorities.

This lady was playing Street Matchmaker. She chatted up some dudes on a patio, then snagged some girls passing by and introduced them to each other.

Me, doing my best impression of Beaker

Shot on Kodak T-Max 400 and Lomography Lady Grey 400 black and white films. Both pushed to 800 - developed in Ilfosol 3, 1+14 @ 68 deg. F for 14 minutes.


  1. You have a ways to go to nail BEAKER (Megan does a wicked Beaker, and an even better Monty's cat), also, I really like the stoic ME, all plaid and observant. I gotta develop some Stampede pics...
