Overcast

The last week has been so hot- nearly 100F for several days – and sticky with 9% humidity! Yeah, laugh, but in a dry climate you become so aware of moisture, it’s absurd.

Right now, as I write this, the sky is yellowish with smoke from the nearby forest fires. The entire western US is ready to go up in flames, and when I think of our upcoming road trip, all of which is through the western US, I wonder if anything will be left for us to see.

Thus, an overcast day is just what I would like to see. Rain would be great.

This was taken with the Olympus XA4 and Fuji Pro 400H film.

Yellow

I have no idea what kind of flower this is, but it is strange to see in a field of dried grasses and weeds. Its luxuriant and big – large, fuzzy green leaves and flowers that are about 5 inches across. It’s a viney-like critter.

Camera here is the small and mighty Olympus XA4, Fuji Pro 400H film, and home-scanned using a Pakon 135 NonPlus. Some post.

Another film image from the 1930s Voigtlander Bessa Rangefinder, using Fuji Pro 400H film.  There is an Impressionist painting which keeps flitting across my mind every time I look at this picture – hence the title.  I think it is a picture by Renoir, of a lady in a white dress looking around a tree in dappled sunlight . . . .

Touches of Light

I’ve been on quite a roll using my older cameras.  This is one of maybe 2 or 3 images (out of 8 possible on a roll) taken with my only 6×9 camera, the classic Voigtlander Bessa RF from the 1930s.  This my first experience with Fuji Pro 400H 120mm film.  My scans were not the best, but worse was the amount of crud on the film.  Processor or me?

Overall, pleased with both film and camera, especially how dark the trail was from being underneath so many trees, the fact that it was early morning, and that I had to handhold the camera – no tripod! – to get what I wanted.  Oh, I guessed at all the exposures too!
