Hollyhocks! I have a few coming up, but not like these. There is a garden in our neighborhood which is one of my faves to visit when out on a walk. I spoke with the lady of the house about it one day, and she said, “I just throw extra seeds over the fence.” Well, she might, but whatever she does, it works!
Taken with a Trip 35 and Fuji Superia 200. And finally developed.
A break from the silent 365 project.
Spring is here! In my area, orange trees are in blossom, filling the air (i.e. my back patio) with sweet smells. Flowers are blooming, bulbs are emerging, and the butterflies are flying around! We have not seen such abundance in nature for years here – drought and fire. Today, it is cloudy and overcast, the sky is ominous. It even rained while I was out for a short hike through Wildwood Park to catch what remains of the super bloom. I took my trusty OM-1 and 55mm macro lens and a roll of Provia slide film. I’ve really begun focusing on using film, and enjoying it a great deal.
This image was taken with Fuji Superia 200 and a Niikon N90S camera, and my first roll through this new-to-me camera. The lens is likely my 28-85mm macro lens. Having a film camera with autofocusing is a new one for me – I have an F100 but it is a little quirky – and it performs beautifully. ITh just finished a roll of Ilford HP+ 400 iso, shot at 800, and in development (if the lab doesn’t screw it up) at +1. We’ll see what happens!
Anyway, a few words from yours truly, in need for a spot of color!
Yeah, and in a pano no less! I couldn’t remember if I had rewound the film in my Trip 35, so I cracked it. The last few pictures were exposed, but the result is that this panorama actually has genuine light leaks, not ones put in place by software. I rather like the results.
