Pictures from a summer month spent in my beloved Minneapolis! All color images were taken this summer on Kodak Portra 400 with a Leica M6 TTL and various old school lenses. All B&W images were shot in Oct-Dec 2013 on Ilford HP5+ and just recently developed. All images were developed and scanned by Richard Photo Lab in California. You can find the rest of the series here: Twin Cities Camera Walks.  *  *  *

Twin Cities Camera Walks VIII (Final)

Twin Cities Camera Walks VIII (Final)

Well it looks like I lied to you when I described my previous Camera Walks post as my last from Minnesota. It turns out I had a few more shots left in me in the final days as I said goodbye to my beloved Twin Cities. As of Tuesday Dec 10, I’ve become a resident of my original hometown and birthplace, Ramallah, a small city in Palestine only 12 miles (20 km) north of Jerusalem and 40 miles (65 km) east of the Mediterranean Sea. I’m posting these final Minnesota images from Ramallah, and this shall be my seventh and

It’s been a hectic Fall– I’ve been preparing for a permanent move to my beloved home in Palestine. Minnesota has been a wonderful home for me over the past 12 years, and I’m forever grateful for the beauty and happiness this place and its people have brought into my life. But the time has come to make the trek back to my birthplace, to the place I’ll always call my final home, where I’m hoping to find a peace of mind that’s been eluding me thus far. I’m sure that while there I will be trying to make sense out

The sixth installment of my “Twin Cities Camera Walks” blog series was entirely shot in Minneapolis over the past month. It’s been a sunny and comfortable Summer in Minneapolis so far but we are ‘far’ enough into it that we are becoming aware Fall is around the corner. As much as I’ve loved the Twin Cities this may be my last Summer here, and with that I will try to get out as much as possible and shoot this beautiful City and its people and preserve for myself the wonderful memories.

It’s truly been a long winter this year in Minnesota. It’s April and there’s still some snow remaining on the ground. It’s also been a long winter for me personally, having suffered an accident last Fall which I’m still healing from. The accident meant I couldn’t walk much so the camera walks had to be shelved for a while. However in the interim I managed to catch a few pictures  since December, which you will find compiled in this post. Some were shot digitally and others on film. It will still be a couple of months until I can return

I haven’t been shooting much lately due to a minor health issue that’s kept me off the streets, but what I’ve finally accomplished is to have 5 rolls of film from mid-late Summer developed and scanned. It was exciting to look at those negatives for the first time, after months have passed since shooting them. Film is wonderful for so many reasons; this is certainly one. I’ll be posting my picks from these 5 rolls in this and the next blog posts. You can see the other posts in this series here: Twin Cities Camera Walks. (Technical info below) Technical Info:

Twin Cities Camera Walks is a new series that I’ve started on my blog to publish street photography images that do not fit into a grouping or a particular sequence. I’ve often had these images accumulate, and sometimes they were good, but I never knew how to present them. This is the first in the series, all shot in the Twin Cities spanning the months of May and June. (Technical info below) Technical Info: Leica M6 TTL Carl Zeiss c-Biogon 2.8/35 ZM Kodak Tri-X film
