Gated Roses in the Tenderloin, Spring 2022

I like cameras.

If you get a camera from 1932, or 1979, or 1912, and stick a roll of film in it, you suddenly possess the capability to capture, in silver salts, the specific arrangement of matter in an instant.
Film is a storage system for thin sections of time, and cameras are rudimentary, one-way time travel machines. 
These photos were taken with a variety of cameras, mostly medium format Zeiss Ikonta folders from the 1930s, some modern 35mm shots, and medium format film on much older, sometimes modified Kodaks.
I have stuff at Mission Local.
