One Quick Take

June 08, 2015 By: Jenna Category: Uncategorized


Ilford 3200, Canon EOS3, theFINDlab, freelensed.

I’ve been experimenting with freelensing on film lately. 95% of my shots taken using this method go straight into the trash, but then there are another 4% that are cool and interesting and close enough that I want to see what else I can do. And then there are the winners, of which there was one on this roll, but it was from second shooting a wedding and I’m not allowed to share my images until at least six weeks after the event. So you get this topsy-turvy shot of T2 instead as I muse about this hobby of mine.

Also topsy-turvy is our house and our life. I like change, but I also like organization/order, so now that the house is halfway unpacked I’m feeling pretty good overall. Next we’ll be in Europe and I’ll be feeling the best I’ve felt in a long time. Then a month devoted to coding because I’ll either be accepted to Hackbright, or prepping myself for a third attempt at getting in. Past that I don’t know much about what life is going to look like. We’ll live in this great rental house with a giant oak tree shading the front yard, T1 will start kindergarten, and we’ll keep on really liking each other. I’m a bit anxious to¬†know more things about what the future holds, but otherwise I’m feeling grateful and happy.

(Film from my birthday party comes back on Friday! That’s another thing I’m feeling happy about. Really, really, REALLY happy.)

T1 day Santa Cruz

Photo credit to Denise Andersen (Nana) for this darling shot of T1 celebrating T1 Day 2015 at the Boardwalk of Santa Cruz. He really enjoyed picking all of his meals and having access to unlimited show and spending the afternoon riding rides with his best friend. He woke up the next morning and told me he wishes it could be T1 Day every day! I told him that’s how I feel about my birthday too.

My mom is flying in and we’re going to spend the day in San Francisco tomorrow! I can’t get enough of those hilly streets and yummy food. I think we’re going to do a very quintessential SF afternoon with Dolores Park, Bi-Rite, and my first in-person visit to the Painted Ladies.

portra 800 hawaii scuba diving


Mamiya 645, Portra 800, pushed 1 stop

My color film from Hawaii came in this week. The delayed gratification that comes from waiting for the film to be processed is such a nice way to relive the trip all over again a few weeks later! This is my mom, moments before she disappeared under the water and left my sister and I to snorkel while everyone else went scuba diving. The next stop of the boat was our chance to risk our lives and rely on a tiny tube of air 30 feet under the water!

I have a new laptop, which should give me the structure I need in order to be more consistent about blogging the story of our life in pictures. I’m going to switch to doing Jenna Cole and film editing on my desktop, and personal editing on my laptop. Someday I’m going to be so sad when I look through the blog and see all the gap years where I fell behind! I don’t want to commit to going back and making up for lost time, because I’m not sure that will ever happen. So for now I’ll start with December 2014 and see if I can keep up. Maybe there will be a point in my future when I’m sitting around wistfully trying to fill up my time (yeah, that will never happen) and I’ll fill in the record of 2013 and 2014 on That Wife.
