What is this?

Recently, I bought a Rollei 35 S. I've been wanting one for a while, ever since I saw a Japanese woman use one six or seven years ago. It's an attempt to rekindle my interest in photography.

I tend to assign use cameras I own for specific tasks and I've decided to use the Rollei for black and white shots. (I already carry a compact Contax T3 camera for color shots). I've also been thinking of re-designing carte blanche pedicure in order to post larger pictures, but decided that it was too daunting a task. So, I've created monochrome to post black and white photos (reserving the other blog for color photos) taken with my new camera and also with my Leica M6 (with a few Holga shots here and there probably once I decide to start carrying it again). I've also decided to limit the number of photographs on this blog to 1000. So when I reach 999, I'll stop. The posts will be haphazard.

I'll also try to write something about the photographs in this space, either where I took it or why or something else about it. I'm not sure how this blog will work, but I might also find myself posting links to other work that I find inspiring or interesting. So we'll see how this goes. Please bear with me as I work out the initial kinks.

If you have any questions or comments or requests, please feel free to contact me.
