5 star general



So I have owned a moped for about 8 years, and it hasn't run in at least the past 6. I was always too busy to work on it, out of town, or it was raining, but now the old 5 star general is tearing up the the streets of Portland. the moped is from 1980 and when I bought it for $75.00 in Montana it only had 150 miles on it, and as you can see from the pictures it only has 200 miles on it now, not bad. 200 miles in 29 years. Nothing beats the wind blowing through your hair at 30 mph.

Omniscope





New camera and a new print. This is an omniscope pinhole camera that I have been making for the last 2 weeks. The light that comes into the pinhole runs parallel with the film plane that is wrapped around a cylinder. I am horrible at describing these things. I guess that is why they made the Google thing.

The photo of the St. Johns bridge was taken with the omniscope (duh). It was scanned from a print on Ilford warm toned fiber paper, and shot on Fuji Acros 100. Anyone have any opinions about Across 100? I kind of like it and I kind of dislike it.

Good night.

Old Man Jones and his photography




My pal old friend Bart Jones has an interview about his skateboard photography career on this website; 100%typical culture. thats right Bart has a career. Big timer. They used my photos and some of my words for it so you should check it. Not that reading a Bart interview needs any selling.

The Dark Side


i have fallen into the grasp of the darkside. i bought a digital SLR last week and it arrived at my doorstep today. I don't really know what to do with it yet. I know I want to do some documentary photography with it. It also has about a 500 page instruction manual that I probibally won't read. Don't get me wrong I'm glad I got the camera, it was a smoking deal, and I can't wait to get nasty with the bugger.

My next photo purchase is going to be one of these bad boys. I have been researching 4x5 press cameras for a long time, and the Busch Pressman model C is an over looked gem. Everyone just wants a Speed Graphics, but not me I want one of these. Full tilt, rotating back, and it weighs about 20 pounds. What more could you want in a camera?
