Here are a few images from a couple rolls of black and white film I put through my 1934 Leica III, with the classic collapsible Elmar 50mm – f/3.5 lens, during a three-day visit to New York City in March 2018. Ilford HP5 400 and Kodak Tri-X 400TX were the types of film used.
I recently put a roll of 400 T-Max Kodak black and white negative film through a 1934 Leica III and developed the film personally. It’s the first roll of film I’ve developed myself in around 15 years. The resulting images aren’t bad for an 83-year-old camera, wielded by a photog who hasn’t shot or developed […]
I’ve started exploring Calgary’s pathways this summer, thanks to recently purchasing a new bicycle – my first in more than 20 years. Here are some photos taken and edited with my iPhone. Feels good to be back on a bike – it’s been too long.

Farewell to the Herald from Stuart Gradon on Vimeo. After 10 years, today is my final shift at the Calgary Herald. I’m leaving to take a full-time web design course. Not an easy decision, but the right one – with the future in mind. Working for the Herald has afforded me a front row seat […]
With Werner Herzog’s ‘Fitzcarraldo’ and Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’ in our minds, my wife and I boarded the rather modest but dependable river boat Luis Afonso, for a two-night 900km journey down the Amazon River from Manaus to Santarem in Brazil. Here’s a set of iPhone photos from the trip: All images ©2014 Stuart Gradon
