Sage in Bloom

Blooming Sage

I took this photo a few years ago with my pre-WW2 Voigtlander Brillant. It is a simple camera that gives lovely results, as only a vinage camera can. I wonder if it is from their uncoated lenses.

I haven’t been to the local botanical gardens since last year, where this picture wast taken, when I fell down a hill and came home looking like something out of a horror film. A bit trepidatious to return, I admit. However, after the rains of last months, I know I have to go. The hills are greening, and the air of spring is in the air.

Definitely time to get out. I think more Ektar is definitely indicated, too.

Tree & Path

I’ve been doing a “silent 365” in black and white this year, but I want to make a comment here.  The camera which I used to take this picture is a 1935 box camera, a pseudo-TLR, the Voigtlander Brillant.  It’s an interesting camera – has a few quirks – but I was really pleased with the results.  This is an image taken on Ektar 100, 120mm, and converted to black and white for th is project.

 

Ssshh!
