Santa Clara Old Quad

Sunset captured on Ektar in the Pentax 645Nii

The Old Quad neighborhood of Santa Clara is filled with Victorian and Victorian-esque architecture, some well preserved, others not so much. I wandered around shooting photos of the buildings one hot summer evening, using the Pentax 645Nii and Kodak Ektar film.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
