Icelandic Analog: Shark Museum

During our road trip through the West Fjords of Iceland, we stopped by the Shark Museum in Bjarnarhofn. The museum itself is really just one big room with lots of stuffed animals and an area where the guides give frequent talks about the history of fishing in Iceland and how they take poisonous meat from Greenland Sharks (also known as Sleeper Sharks) and ferment them until they become edible. Weird tasting, but edible.

Behind the museum is a large shack, where they age shark meat until it becomes hakarl. It’s a shark shack, if you will. These photos were all shot on my Lomo LC-A+ camera, using Lomo’s 400 ISO color negative film.

Icelandic Analog: Abandoned mini-golf course

Following up on my previous two collections (Hornbjarg and Lomochrome Purple), here’s another batch of film photos from our recent trip to Iceland.

During our roadtrip through the westfjords, we stopped at a lovely hotel in Heydalur that had great food, tons of boardgames, and some hotsprings. As we walked around, we found a mini-golf course that had become overgrown and forgotten. We begged the staff to allow us to play on it, and eventually they lent us some balls and putters. We had a blast playing through the weeds and mud and enjoyed the company of a beautiful and fluffy cat along the way.

Panoramic Double Exposures From Around The Mission District and Mission Cliffs

I’ve shared some of my panoramic double exposure film experiments here before, but I just wanted to share another batch from around my neighborhood, The Mission District in SF, and from Mission Cliffs Gym.

In case you are wondering, these WIDE shots were all captured on film, with no digital composing. I’d take a shot on my LC-Wide camera, advance the frame half as much as usual, then take another shot. The resulting shots create surreal landscapes that blend into each other and take up about 6 to 14 inches of 35mm film. You can see more analog photos in this style on my Flickr page.
