Here’s a sweet shot large-format, black & white shot of Kirt’s rig for a recent photo shoot at Little Girl’s Point on Lake Superior near the Michigan/Wisconsin border. You can see more on Flickr & for sure check out his website to view & purchase his work!
Here’s a shot from last week in my hometown of Leland by Mark Smith who writes:
The tribal fishing boat Waabi-Maang (White Loon) fires up for another fishing season in Leland, Michigan. I have been fooling around with a vintage lens here .. quite a trip! (if you look closely you can almost see the storm coming – 8 inches of snow tonight. Thanks, Spring.)
View Mark’s photo background big and see more in his slideshow.
PS: The lens is a Contax Sonnar 2890 – here’s another photo “Branches to Branches” that Mark took with it.
High on the list of “Things That I Want, Yet Somehow Don’t Have” is a waterproof camera. Lance does have one, the Nikon AW120, which is apparently not only waterproof, but also shockproof and freezeproof. Sounds like a ton of fun!
You’ll need a camera like this today on the Lakes as the winds are really whipping things up all across the state.

Marianne took this shot using a Great Wall df2 camera using tri X/hc110 film. Another friend of the blog, Mark O’Brien, has details on The Great Wall camera on his blog.
You can see more shots that Marianne has taken with this camera in her amazing Great Wall DF2 gallery.
You can see it bigger in his Holga slideshow.

Is it cruel or welcome to post photos like this in February? Please discuss below…
EllenJo writes that because her hands were wet it was hard to advance the film, so she ended up with some cool “happy accidents” like this. Check this out bigger in her blue slideshow and I hope your weekend is full of happy accidents!
