Redesign The World

The Hill
The Hill

Being trapped in med school prevents me from enjoying sunlight and good company, heading to the hospital as the sun rises and leaving as it sets… seeing friends by night, refueling with caffeine by day.

There are so many things I want to do.. but they have to happen slowly. Especially photography. I need months to take photos, months to wait for an open day to develop film, months to slowly scan my negatives, and months to organize, print, and post.. I’m still building a camera I designed last year… about half way done now. (You’re highly encouraged to play with film and chemistry; painting with light is infinitely more fun than pushing a shutter button.)

Drivin To Grill
A police car spontaneously combusted on 94.. the Weinermobile was prepared, and the folks on the train were as excited as they were hungry. (Vertical banding due to moving rapidly while the film turret was turning.)

(Above are three shots I recently scanned from a roll I took over the course of last year…)

I’m sure I’ll post more eventually..

The Tower

After completely disassembling my Widelux (and after buying special tools online), I now have accurately timed and fully operational 1/15, 1/125, and 1/250 shutter speeds (all three the camera can do). Saved myself ~$300 in repairs. 🙂

No crazy springs or other scary stuffs, just an impossibly large array of incredibly tiny gears that needed to be individually oiled and cleaned, then carefully placed back in the exact order, in the correct orientation, in the right spot, with the right pressure, on the right teeth marks.. it took a short eternity, but now everything works!

I’ll post more photos from my first roll soon. For now, my free time (hah..) will be dedicated to enjoying the 1/15 and 1/250 shutter speeds.
