Move-In Special

Nikon FM - Illford HP5+ Kyle Troop Photography 2023

Move-In Special. First and last month’s rent to make this place your very own. It’s a little drafty and you’ll have to fight with the opossums for the use of the porch. And pay no mind to the empty mobile home lots around the yard, with this place you’ll be park royalty. The train tracks running right behind the property are value added and we won’t be charging an extra fee for this amenity. Welcome home.

These were taken with a Nikon FE 35mm on Lomography Lady Grey 400.

This peculiar spot is on the way to Blueprint Coffee. Sitting at the red light, there’s a great view of the building on stilts. It’s pulls my attention every single time. I happened to catch it mid afternoon one weekend and had a roll of film to finish up. So I pulled over and got to it.

These are on a Nikon FE 35mm with Fuji 400.

Ran When Parked

Nikon FM - Illford HP5+ Kyle Troop Photography 2023

Riding around Cartersville early one morning and passed by this staple. When it’s open, there’s rarely a parking spot open in the tiny lot. That doesn’t discourage many. These were taken with a Nikon FE on Lomography Color 400. 

I’ll have a Mexicali to go, and a sweet tea.

It’s like a Transplants song just writing itself in the parking lot of this pawn shop. I was out riding around intentionally looking to burn some film. But I didn’t expect to come upon this gem. The “Absolutely No Profanity” sign was the cherry on top.

Taken with a Mamiya 645 1000s medium format on Lomography 400. I really dig how Lomo 400 works for medium format. Definitely a fun roll.

Closed This Week

I often find myself riding around the roads and areas of where I grew up. If there’s an hour or two with nothing going on, I’ll be grabbing a camera and my keys. This time I headed up highway out of town when I spotted this one. I’ve seen the building for years. But a clear day and the right film lined up. I had just popped a roll of Lomography Color 800 in a Nikon FE. It was meant to be.

Also way rad to see a food pantry happening in this area.

El Camino Out in the Wild

Mount Airy NC El Camino Out In The Wild 1 Kodak Portra 400 Kyle Troop Photography 2024

Didn’t expect to see a rad El Camino in front of a skate shop on a random Saturday afternoon in Mt. Airy, North Carolina. But I did. And I had a camera. So here we are.

Taken with a Nikon FE 35mm on Kodak Portra 400.

If I drive past this spot, I’m stopping to take a photo. Couldn’t tell you how many photos I have of this place. Every time I find a new detail that wasn’t there before. So much activity for a tiny abandoned building in a wide open gravel lot. 

Some of these are taken with a Petri Racer rangefinder 35mm on Kodak Portra 400. The others are with a Nikon FE 35mm on Lomography Color 800.

The Park and HP5

Nikon FM - Illford HP5+ Kyle Troop Photography 2023

Summer mornings in the south are the best time to get out while the humidity is still low enough to not immediately fog up my camera. On this late summer morning I took the opportunity. Grabbed a Nikon FM and a roll of Illford HP5+ to take with me. I’m not very sports oriented. But the symmetry and lines of the fields and courts are always interesting through a lens.

ATL Illustrations

Nikon FM - CineStill 400D

It’s hard not to enjoy walking around Atlanta on a sunny spring day. With a Nikon FM loaded up with a roll of CineStill 400D, I set out on a journey for coffee with some friends. And while getting coffee was successful, the real treasure was the street art we saw along the way. Soon these pieces of art will be gone, covered up, and replaced. Enjoys the views of the fleeting.

After passing by the signs for Metropolis, IL a good handful of times, I decided to check it out on my way to St. Louis. Traffic earlier in the day kept me from getting there in time to go to the Super Museum before it closed. But the town was cool and the World's...
