Pinhole Day 2018 in Norwich by Jana Uyeda

I had the opportunity to celebrate Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day in the fine city of Norwich, Norfolk which is about 2 1/2 hours northeast of London. The event was coordinated by the great Alex Yates who picked us (the Americans) up in a giant van and gave a tour of his beloved city. He also organized The Pinhole World show at Frank's Bar to celebrate the annual event. 

For this event I packed my ONDU 66 and Fujifilm Neopan Acros 100. Here are my WPPD images but you can also view more at my Instagram where I share images on a daily basis.

On our first day in Norwich Alex took us on a trip to the coast where we accessed the North Sea at Salthouse.

From there we ventured towards lunch with a quick stop at St. Margaret's Church in Cley next the Sea, a gorgeously crumbling 14th century church. 

After a delicious lunch and a lot of tea we visited Baconsthorpe Castle.

The weather in Norwich was a bit terrible as it was rainy, cold and wet but we found many opportunities for tea and shelter as we toured the area.

I hope you enjoyed this first post and I'll have more images from WPPD soon!

New scanner, new life by Jana Uyeda

I finally got my new Epson V700 scanner up and running which means I can get caught up with the mountain of negatives on my desk.

Over Memorial Day weekend I headed back to the Olympic Peninsula with my Rolleiflex and spent time enjoying the scenery, driving along the winding roads and taking pictures of those never ending rows of evergreen trees. I've been visiting the area over the last few years and spent a majority of those visits in the Olympic National Park. This time I was traveling with my pug and National Parks were off-limits. I didn't mind the change as it allowed me to explore other areas like Neah Bay and Pacific Beach.

Next year I may explore more of Long Beach or perhaps take a trip down to Astoria, OR instead. Until then, enjoy these initial scans of my 2014 peninsula trip.

Picture Lake by Jana Uyeda

Last summer some friends and I ventured towards Artist Point, a viewpoint at the end of the Mt. Baker Highway which is generally covered with snow and closed to vehicle traffic. I started thinking about Artist Point again because I found this pinhole of Picture Lake, taken along the road as we wound our way up Mt. Baker Highway. It's such a gorgeous drive, I'll hope to make a return trip this summer.
