Title: EW-VII as seen by Coop, Digital Stills
Post by: Coop on March 18, 2014, 10:25:13 am
Didn't do a whole lot of Digital this year.  In fact, only about 30 ish photos, and no more than 45 minutes in video footage (which is being edited now).

The gold lies in the 3x24 exposures of 110 film, and single roll of 36exp B&W film, which I am hoping to get developed soon.

If the 110 footage came out good, I may even shy away from B&W, as I pretty much had to force myself to use it, and ended up burning the entire roll in camp.

Anywho, here's what I've got:

Following Tascabe to DDAP:

Harry, the drunken navigator that has been accompanying me on all of my journeys since I was about 14:

Pre-event selfie... mind you, this is Thursday... been on the road since Tuesday, so already pre-gaming on tiredness.

I don't even remember who I handed the camera to, or what day this occurred... I think I was working on a commo wire run.

Trench Art.  An ash tray made by a Grenztruppen member, out of a soup can, with a bayonet and a sharpie.  "We're wet, we're miserable, we're Grenzers."

I think i meant to start a video, but instead took a photo, as I have a video clip that starts right here.  Anywho, my PKM in use by Satan's Pilgrim.

The good shit will be on film, so long as none of the hardware failed.

Stand by for the video!
