Tag: Elicar 55mm f2.8 Macro

Leaves or Petals?

I’ve been a bit off the grid for the last few weeks, focusing a bit on some other things rather than photography.  I actually never thought I would miss out on looking at my photos and taking them – but I do!  I guess I do like photography more than I thought!

These are – I think – bougainvillea flowers, but as they were shot on Kentmere 100 awhile ago, I don’t remember.  Taken with a Nikon FM2n, an Elicar 55mm f2.8 manual-focus macro lens, and, obviously, B&W film.  Another surprise is that I really like the quality of image with the Kentmere.  Ya learn something new every day.



Another image from the roaming of a year ago.  I put off developing the images because I thought I would do it – that is, developing my own black and white.  I found I like the sense of accomplishment – but I don’t like the stress – of home developing.  So, I had them done in a lab which accommodates each type of film.

Kentmere seems to be a pretty nice film, and it is reasonably priced.  I have more true b&w I want to use and process, such as Ilford Delta 100 and Fuji Acros 100.
