pacificyo its been a long long time since I've done any kind of street shooting, so I've been neglecting my #PJs100Strangers Project. Here is Roger and Cheri. I thought it was cute that they were on a date together riding bikes...would've been cuter if it were a tandem bike haha. #MamiyaC330 #SDanalogue #wwi9 #DELbeach #DELinstameet #igerssandiego 5mon

pacificyo another shot for #PJs100strangers from the #HimaticAF2. from left to right: Christopher, Jonathan, Arturo, and Gustavo. I dropped something in one of the dungeons and went back to retrieve it, but was spotted by this group of hooligans that decided to follow me in. They were really intrigued by my camera, and also curious about where the skate park was at. Is there a skatepark at #GriffithPark? Well at least I was able to teach them a little about #filmphotography. 2y

pacificyo another shot for #pjs100strangers. This one is interesting. I just got off stage at the magic 92.5 show and Adriana asks me to take a photo of her and put it on my website to make her famous. is my feed so syndicated that random people know about my project where i take portraits of random people? regardless, here you go Adriana...you are now famous....on instagram. 2y

pacificyo Another shot from the #Canonflex for #PJs100Strangers. this is "Arrow". I met him at the #writerzblok at #styleathon2012. Usually I ask people for their portrait, because they have something about them that stands out. It's this guy's glasses. How can you NOT photograph that? Also, it's safe to assume he is an aerosol artist. 2y

pacificyo I just developed a roll of Fuji Velvia 50F #35mm. Now for the return of #pjs100strangers. This is Pam. I met her at #AdamsAveStreetFair. We were listening to the same band, and I just noticed her perfectly poised...basically asking my camera to take a shot. I think she's done modeling before, because usually people I ask turn towards the camera...but she turned to the side and gave me this nice profile of her. Don't ask me why the image came out yellow. I didn't use any filters or color flashes for this shot. 2y
  •   valleychickk Nice portrait ! Lovely ! 2y
  •   nickmuller @pacificyo Fuji is the best with yellows and greens.. Did you use a yellow filter on lens or post?? 2y
  •   pacificyo @nickmuller actually I didn't. the film was cross processed. but I don't know why this shot turned out so yellow haha. The other shots had a tint of blue-green to them. 2y
  •   nickmuller @pacificyo Fuji is soo good.. It's a shame they are discontinuing the motion picture film stocks this coming year :(. Ill have to try cross processing sometime. Thanks man! 2y
  •   telenasaurus That film is amazing 2y
  •   dorkks26 Such brilliance....the eye of one man 2y
  •   pixelina Fantastic shot. 2y

pacificyo stranger no. ? for #pjs100strangers. randomly met John at #instawalkSDxSF. he just so happened to be dressed in a way that compliments the gigantic inflatable red lotus behind him. I assume he was at the civic center for the poetry festival, he looks like a potential future revolutionary. this was shot on the #canonflex #35mm SLR using cross processed Fuji Velvia. #filmphotography #igerssf 2y

pacificyo here is another shot from #pjs100strangers. Her name is Anne, and I shot this photo of her on her 89th birthday. She was such a delightful woman, she giggled as if it were only her 10th birthday. This rebellious woman was sitting in the front row at a rock concert in #balboapark. if I wasn't with #instawalkSD at the time...I would've totally asked her for a dance. :]....btw I've decided to turn this "100 strangers" project into a limited run book, possibly with the help of kickstarter. more info on that later. :] 2y

pacificyo this is J and Claire. [aka @kodakchromeiphone/@monochromeiphone and @backpocketcamera] met both of them through instagram. i think its okay for me to include them in the #pjs100strangers project, since they technically were strangers. anyway, they previously lived in #sandiego and are now in #portland. i'm glad they survived their oregon trail without losing any children to dysentery, or drowning in the river. i've found out recently that they are now ENGAGED! congratulations you two! have fun in portland! <3 This goo was shot on a #minolta #35mm #weathermatic. #sandiego #igerssandiego #lajolla #california_igers 2y

pacificyo here are strangers 9, 10, and 11. The Gorgeous Jackie, Max, and the enigma of a man that introduced himself to me as "Harry the Hippo". I met these 3 at the #obstreetfair. Harry's portrait was a double exposure highlighting the art he was selling or giving away. Their full stories can be found on my website. [pacificyo.com]. These were all shot on the #byclops #35mm #TLR camera. #filmphotography #sandiego #igerssandiego #recesky #pjs100strangers 2y

pacificyo meet Carmella. a really sweet lady I met at children's pool in #lajolla. Unfortunately my film camera hit my head really hard while returning to shore and rewinded itself. but she seemed so happy I wanted to photograph her, so I use my iPhone instead. side note: today I shot a stranger IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN during a swim. hehe. #sandiego #igerssandiego #pjs100strangers 2y

pacificyo I've started a project called "100 Strangers" where I ask 100 strangers for their portraits [on a film camera] and then tell their story. This is no. 1 and 2, Matt and Kim. when I shot this, they had just moved to #sandiego and we're engaged. I learned that they officially got married a few days ago. Congratulations to them. :] #filmphoography #igerssandiego#35mm #lajolla #lajollashores #pjs100strangers 2y
