Walking around Denver with an iPhone




I finally broke down and purchased my first iPhone, the 4S. Im not sure if that outs me as someone who is behind the times, poor, or just un-hip, but for some reason I waited until the 4th iteration of the iPhone to go ahead and give it a shot.

When I ran into a problem with the mirror on my Pentax K-5, I decided to send it in for a repair before the warranty expired. The loss of my camera for what could be 6 or 7 weeks has me concentrating on my oddball cameras. I have a couple of SLR cameras from the eighties, as well as a Leica C2-Zoom. Throw in the iPhone and an Olympus Pen E-PL1 and I have plenty of alternative options to continue exploring and practicing photography.  The Leica cost me $50 on ebay and is a fun, if not cumbersome, camera to shoot with. It’s the only Leica i could afford, and I’m pretty sure it has some parts from a Japanese company in there as well.

I don’t claim to be great, but I love shooting. This is a series of images taken with the iPhone and the olloclip lens attachment. The wide angle side of the lens gives you great coverage for shooting buildings downtown. I see a lot of distortion, but I don’t mind it so much. It’s iPhoneography, in my mind it is just for fun, but it still never ceases to amaze me how far the cell phone camera has come.

Pentax MG

The Pentax MG was introduced in 1981 and remained in production until 1984.

It is considered an entry level 35mm semi-automatic camera.

The Pentax MG was a manual focus, aperture priority camera, with no manual settings of speeds.

This is one of my film cameras.
