I’ve finally gotten around to scanning a backlog of film negatives, with photos taken as far back as October 2010. I’m only halfway through scanning the images from the first roll of expired Fuji 110 film with the Voltron Starshooter, and so far it’s proving to be much more than just a silly novelty camera that transforms into a robot.
The Ambassador Bridge, which is the first thing I photograph with almost every new camera. Sorry about the spots; I cleaned up some but not all, and I think most of it is actually coming from inside the slide scanner I’m using (if anyone has tips on how to clean dust out of a Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 without opening it up, I’m all ears) (it doesn’t belong to me).
Here are a few taken during our October 2010 visit with friends in Milwaukee:
Lake Michigan, photographed right behind the Milwaukee Art Museum, which, incidentally, was a shooting location for the Transformers movie. Which I’m guessing probably had Voltron in it, although I haven’t seen it.
Our friend Michael, the Coolest Guy in the World, behind the Frank Lloyd Wright house he took us to see. Only half the house was completed before the original owner ran out of money in 1956, and Michael is standing in the area that was supposed to be/will someday become the bedrooms wing. If his friend who owns the house can afford to finish building it, that is. It’s already a million dollar half a house (and pretty amazing as-is). Anyway that’s why the outside wall is all insulation and tin or whatever, because it’s an unfinished wall.
Discount Liquor, a favourite place to visit when we’re in Milwaukee:
BONUS: a couple of shots of the Voltron camera hanging out in front of the Milwaukee Art Museum (which have been published here before, but whatever), the first taken with the Maxim camera and Lomography Redscale 200 film, the second with the boring old point and shoot digital. I don’t know why I didn’t take a photo of the museum WITH the Voltron; it feels like the nerdy meta-ness only came 3/4 circle.

First time wading in Lake Michigan. Hell no I didn’t swim. It was cold, y’all.

Little lakes, big lakes.
