The Olympus Pen Goes to the Beach, Okitsu

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

I finally finished the roll of half frame pictures from my Olympus Pen camera.  This time the Pen came with me to the beach is Okitsu, Chiba Japan.  The lovely little pics to warm up my love of analog.  All things considered this little camera, is a great companion.  We both had a great time at the beach.

The first film roll came back from my local friendly photo shop.  The roll is from the Olmpus Pen EE S, half frame camera.  My Ricoh died on my once we got to Oahu, so It was like the old days, using a simple point and shoot to capture the environs that surround myself with.  Most of these were taken in the little north shore town of Haleiwa.  Home of surfers, laid backs, and all around chill people.

Look and See.

Election Day, Tokyo Style

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

The elections in Japan are short and sweet compared to those from back in the US.

There was only a few weeks of heavy campaigning and the trucks driving around the hood

blaring the “VOTE FOR ME,” rhetoric.

The streets are busy, in the morning as people rush out to vote before the heavy rains to come.

I started to take a few steps back when the political posters were the subject.

These are the results.

If you are here, in Japan, go out and vote.

Here Comes Another Classic

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Here comes another classic in the shape of a vintage Olympus Pen EE S half frame camera.  Those of you

might remember from a few months ago I tried to liberate some dusty cameras from a store display in Ichikawa.  I wasn’t able to, but I found this Pen EE S at the camera show in Shinjuku on Friday.  Its a solid point and shoot camera that first appeared in the late 50’s and was widely used by the Japanese public.

These are the first images, shot mainly in and around Shinjuku and Okubo.
