An estimated 15-20 thousand people descended on Montpelier, VT to march on the Vermont State House on the 21st of January, 2017, to rally for women’s rights, gender equality, and LGBTQ rights in opposition to the vapid and vile rhetoric of Donald Trump, his supporters, and his presidency. I was there with one fist in the air and a camera in my other.
I’ve been developing a lot of film, scanning in the prints and putting them all up in my Flickr feed and a Facebook album lately. Here’s some of the goods.

Roll #3 was developed today. There are a few I very much love. Please, taste them.
I got my first pair of film cartridges developed from my initial tests with a classic Canon AE-1 Program 35mm film SLR. The results were fun. Ten shots in particular stood out for me. I am not fond of the film developer’s digital transfer, though. The noise grain in the darker regions are not on my prints, just the digital copies. Hit the jump for a peek.
I am uploading and posting the last sets of photographs [devArt link] my now dead Nikon Coolpix 5600 took. Rest in pieces, 5600. You will be remembered. I’ll also be putting up the first photo I took with Cora’s new Nikon Coolpix S210. That is one sweet piece of digital point-and-shoot camera. It will definitely hold me off until I get my hands on a Nikon dSLR (likely a D60) kit. I swear I am not being paid for endorsement! It’s like Leo Laporte once said, in the digital camera world, you have two groups: Canon people and Nikon people. I am definitely a Nikon person.
I was first introduced to the Coolpix line when I received a 3200 [pic] for my birthday. I was then let loose on the world, capturing innumerable photons with that little baby. It left me, however, when it was stolen at a show in South Burlington. I mourned deeply. Time passed, and I eventually decided to purchase another. I was adamant in my new camera being similar. I stayed within Nikon’s Coolpix line and picked up the ill-fated 5600. Over the next few years, I took gigabytes of photos with it. It went almost everywhere I did. I miss it now; but I also look forward to the future. RIP, Nikon Coolpix 5600.
