Color filters are a bit of fun!
Masked man. Stuffed condor.
I picked up a roll of film I had processed and ignored scanning it for weeks. Photography just wasn’t interesting anymore. Yesterday I finally scanned it.
This hiatus showed me something very clearly: I prefer the looks of film to that of digital. Even the Fuji digital equivalents don’t come close to the beauty of film. However, in the pre-digital age, film was horrible because it was expensive and unsuccessful as far as I was concerned. Snapshots, bad lighting, poor composition, and more failures than success. And no education, just a camera and failed hope.
Now I think that digital helped me learn and digital helps analog. It’s good when things play well together, don’t you think?
Rare, and beautiful is the Amur Leopard.
Pop in two quarters, and the view is stupendous.
Low clouds, high clouds, sun. Late afternoon after a bit of rain.
I have not been too much into cameras or photography for weeks, but with the weather changing and my garage getting straightened up (a months long project!), at least I am finding an interest in something other than my messy house!
An element of mystery always catches me when on this trail. It is not through a particularly dramatic landscape, but its overgrowth always enchants me. As evening falls, it is the stuff of dreams or fairy tales or nightmares.
I will leave you to your imagination.
