The Skyborn & Melody Drive-In Theaters


A few years back, my friend Ryan and I wanted to put on our own “Guerrilla Drive-In.” We had a film picked out, a potential projector to use, a location scouted, and a vague idea of the logistics. Once we had it all set: we’d spread the word and treat any curious friends and passersby to a DIY drive-in movie experience. All you’d have to do is show up, grab a free serving of wholesale popcorn, and enjoy the show. But in the end, we ran out of time. Summer faded, it got cold, and we had other things going on.

[35mm Ohio] Cars


Never had much appreciation for cars outside of utilitarian purpose.

Never saw those Disney movies.

Have seen Days of Thunder many times, though.

Got a roll of Porta 400 back from the lab that featured three automobiles of various eras.

So far on these 35mm Ohio trips, I've driven 2576.7 miles.

[35mm Ohio] A Rock Garden, The Road, & Columbus


I finished off a roll of Portra 400 in the Pentax, then switched to a fresh roll in the Minolta. Prior to this, I had pretty much timed my film consumption with the travel. I’d start a new roll when leaving and end a roll or two before pulling into home. That always seemed to work out story-wise—perfect for the usual, overwhelmingly digital format of QC/D where images tend to flow right along with the narrative.
