A grass found in a local public garden. I rather like the addition of the sunspot, which I got in a number of images on this roll.
Another photo from the misty, moisty morning I climbed out of bed . . . . While the Galaxy S5 takes OK panos, I like the stitching-together process better. Here is a view of Mount Clef across the grasses of the small valley in Wildwood Park nearby my home. Today we expect 86F, and tomorrow 91F. I think I live in hell sometimes, even though it is very pretty! I am tired of this heat – ongoing heat – and dream of water falling from the sky.
A new-to-me film, recommended by one whose photography I admire: Kodak UltraMax 400. Not an expensive film. I shot the roll at the recommended iso, using the automatic exposure element in a Ricoh XR-10 camera, and a Vivitar 28-70mm lens. The guy at the photo lab suggest I shoot all 400 at 320 iso instead – longer exposure, better color. I’ve loaded another roll of the same film, in the same camera, to test it out at a lower iso.
This image was doctored a bit in LR.
Everywhere, the hills are brown. The only green is found near creeks, or where Jimson weed is growing.
