The Samsung WB35F is a noisy, low image quality, tiny sensor compact camera from years ago.
I got one for a few bucks, converted it to 720nm infrared, and I'm quite happy with the distressed rendering.
I wouldn't really use it for pretty things. But for gritty moody images, it's just perfect.

Emulating the Tri-X
2020
The T-max 3200 was one of my favorite film, but the TRi-X 400 always was my absolute favorite: I could shoot it from 400 to 3200 (and sometimes more) and always loved the rendering and grain quality.
Monsters in the woods
2021
The world is full of invisible monsters. These are the monsters I see when I walk in the woods.
Ice and Frost
2021
Winter is here. With the cold, first snow, and lot of ice and frost. I'm focusing here on the tiny ice crystals I can see eraly in the morning.
Lost in a white old forest
2020
Sometimes, a forest is just a forest. Sometimes, it is much more. Or something completely different. With climate change, snow where I am right now became pretty rare. As soon as I saw the first snowflakes falling from the sky, I got ready for some cold adventure.
An eerie walk, sand in the sky

Sometimes, the winds carry sand from the Sahara far away.

Phone can't take good pictures. Or can they?
Night walk
2020
Insomnia, boredom, loaded battery, unusual warm weather and the certainty of being totally alone during a stupid pandemic: that can only end in a night walk shooting stuff.
Lost in a golden forest
2020
I am less and less interested in reality. My photos are less and less meant to depict that reality. I want, I need, my photos to depict what I see, what I feel, and that is not what is commonly accepted as reality. This old golden forest may not be old, or golden, or even a forest. And that doesn't matter.
A lonely walk in a dead town
2020
Confinement or no confinement? A dead city is a dead city. Walking here is like walking in a graveyard, tough without the feeling of being in a sacred place.
Heat
2020
I love heat. I'm never more happy than when temperature is 100. I love the sun, the sensation of heat on my skin. Maybe I should live permanently in a place like Death Valley. It's pretty boring from a photographer point of view, but at least climate is just right for me.
