Brendan vs Jesús - Pinhole Swinger Film Swap

Brendan vs Jesús – Pinhole Swinger Film Swap

Brendan vs Jesús

An interesting variation on two of the constant themes of my blog, pinhole photography and film swaps. At some point during the WPPD trip to Amsterdam we were all invited to place a roll of shot 120 film in a bowl. You then picked at random from the selection and re-shot the roll in the classic film swap mode. The difference here is that you both shot using pinhole cameras.

I was very lucky to…

184/365/2014 – Journey
I have been known to play the occasional computer game. This is one of the ones that actually gets re-played.
It is visually stunning and has a haunting soundtrack.

The plan was for a run around the Irish countryside watching the Poc Fada but the weather conspired against us and the event was canceled for player safety.
Back up plan – trip to the…

Since the gates first opened on the 21st of February 1832 people have been dying to get in here. There has been a total of 1.5 million people interned in the the graveyard. To give that a little context, Dublin city has a current population of half a million people. This makes Glasnevin one of the most densely populated areas on the planet.

The graveyard is beautiful with a very rich history. It…

All Along the Banks on the Royal Canal – Pinhole Obscura Reblog

The Royal Canal - Dublin

Its a wonderful thing to be surprised by something so familiar. As a Dubliner I have looked at and passed over the royal canal literally hundreds of thousands of times in my life. I never really paid much attention to it. It was just a body of water that bisected the roads that I needed to drive on. Its narrow humped backed bridges can be a source of traffic congestion on the roads near my…

Brendan vs Jesús on Flickr.A pinhole swinga with the wonderful and talented Jesús Joglar.
We both placed rolls of shot 120 pinhole camera film in a bowl during the Amsterdam WWPD meet up last april and managed to pick each others rolls at random.
In theory since we both used Zero 4x5 cameras with horseman 120 roll backs everything should have lined up…..I feel like since they did not it can only be my fault…
I enjoyed the collaboration and really love the results.

Killinthomas Turf Camp - Pinhole Obcuura Reblog

Killinthomas Turf Camp – Pinhole Obcuura Reblog

Disconnected - Pinhole

In the years 1939 to 1945 large scale turf camps were built on the Bog of Allen with a view to harvesting turf on an industrial scale. This was part of Irelands efforts to be self sufficient during the second world war. The camps were home to men from all over Ireland that came to cut the bog for fuel. 

The bog camps are long closed and not much remains of them but the hidden inside the Killinth…

Religions have been founded based on the debate over using plastic or steel reels. Personally I like the AP plastic reel. I find them easy to use and at this stage I have about 10 of them so I always have some dry and ready to go.

Always make sure they are fully dry before you use them as the film will stick to the plastic…
