Fog-shrouded Mission Street looks like a scene from an awesome ’70s horror movie

3D City: Color Mission

A bunch of scenes from right around Mission and 19th. Mission Jewelry & Loan, the old El Capitan marque, the skeleton of a bike, and ashes from a small church fire. Shot on a vivid roll of Kodak’s Portra film.

BTW, I’ve recently launched a Patreon for my stereoscopic photo project, thanks to everyone who’s kicked in so far and helped me reach the first goal.

3D City: Powell

15 minutes at Powell Street turnaround. I got to a downtown photo-walk 15 minutes early, so I snapped these shots (and a bunch others) all off while waiting for the walk to start. Crazy cause I never really had that much luck shooting there before.

This is the second roll of Ilford HP5 I’ve shot this month, and I think it works great for this project. The thing is that it’s rather expensive. The folks at Photoworks have been helping this project out with some deals on developing, but I wanted to ask you guys for help to. If you dig 3D city, kick in two bucks on my Patreon to help the good film coming.

Walk around photographing the city long enough and you’ll end up with plenty of photos of stairs. I was building up quite a collection and thought they deserved their own post.

3D City: Highs, Lows, Middles

My morning walk from the Mission to downtown is one of my favorite rituals. When shooting photos along the way, this walk takes about 30 minutes. Unless it’s raining, then I’ll be out for hours.

This batch was shot on my Nimslo 3D with a roll of Ilford HP5 (my default “foggy day” film) on a recent rainy morning, then dropped off at Photoworks on the walk back home where I’ll load up film for the next day’s walk.
