I really don’t know where to start this post. I have a lot of photos and some of them are  from quite some time ago, December 2009 more precisely… Those shots were taken with the Zorki, a camera which I don’t use that often because it suffers from heavy backfocusing, the rangefinder couldn’t be calibrated properly, even though I have been researching about it but nothing seems to work. Anyway, the results are kinda funny…NiñoPortezuelo

FIlm is Kodak E100VS, it was intended to be cross processed but I forgot to tell the lab guy to do so… duh…

Portezuelo

This is at Portezuelo, a beach near Puerto Vallarta, like an hour and a half away…

I took this selfportrait inside of the castle… the AE-1P in one hand, the rollei in the other.

Then, like a week or so after that we went to the National Anthropology Museum. I already posted some of the digital photos I took that day, but I just developed film from that day…

We stoped for lunch and took this photo there. I like it so much, there’s a lot of stuff happening there, you know, the dude on the phone, the guy looking at the camera, and the kissing couple just behind him…

Charla

Taken while having lunch too…

Lachapelle

There was a David LaChapelle exhibition at the moment in the city so you could find these all around… I never went to the exhibition, I’m not much of a fan of his work, but still I consider it quite important…

Sammy did some haute couture job for Mally’s wardrobe… and took some nice photos of the band playing aswell…

There was a family gathering with relatives I’ve never seen before, but anyway, it was fun!

Leonel2

He was the main reason for the gathering… he’s been doing a lot of research on the Family Tree, more than 35 years in the making.

Leonel

He’s actually a very cool man, there he was explaining to the young dudes the process of making the Family Tree.

Zelda

Zelda…

think that’s it for now… still got some film left to develop…

cheers!

ps- read the news today and saw this… really made me sad, he was such a big influence and a great innovator of our time… he did more for modern music than MJ (with all due respect) but people don’t know much about him and ignore all that he did, without him the music world wouldn’t be the same…

Comment by Ayari

It was a looong post 😉 I especially love the shot with lingerie hanging on a rope and the one with the guitar-backpack, made me smile 🙂 😀

Comment by Kamil

if i only knew what happened, the reason would be already destroyed/replaced/disappeared somehow. and i can’t scan it on my own, unfortunately…

and guess what. we bought zorki 4k two months ago, but even it was repared nearly in the same moment as we got it, it still have problems with winding the film. eh… i easily get pesymistic:) very nice set you have here.

Comment by Miss-Maple

yup, I’ve heard a lot of negative comments about zorki cameras, they always have a lot of problems, but I still don’t care, I like shooting with it, you’ll never know what you’re going to get. 🙂
