Since moving here, I’d been wanting to photograph the people who go downtown. It’s a mix of tourists and natives — there are enough great parks, museums and activities to bring the locals but the reputation of Broadway draws in the visitors.
These are a bit of the findings on a warm afternoon in February. Some on the Shelby St Bridge, one from Cumberland Park (this really neat space basically under the bridge) and the rest from walking around Broadway.
All FP4+ in the GA645.
I was in Raleigh recently and had a chance to go on a little photo excursion with Karl. We went to the Lassiter Mills Park where I planned to shoot some of my FP4 film in the GA645. Fate had other plans.

Well, they had given out sometime in the latter part of 2013, but I didn’t know that until that brisk February morn (Aside — it does always seem that Karl and I find photography a bit cold). With no other camera on me but my iPhone 4S, I decided to shoot a “roll.” Below are my favorites from the session.
They are unabashedly digital — captured on a phone, post-processed to hell and back. But sometimes you must embrace the media you have — the alternative would have been no imagery at all.
