This summer I had my first really great crop of figs. This is one of the last, a few days before picking. We had some bird or rat problems – not sure which, maybe both. Rats are fair game to kill, but birds are our friends. However, birds are not really the best diners as they peck a little and take off, leaving behind damaged fruit. Netting helps. Hopefully the squirrels haven’t heard about the figs, or they don’t like them . . . No serpents thus far.
The Trip 35 is a zone focusing system, where the focus is determined by 4 different clicks, from about 3 feet away to infinity. Here I wanted to see how it did with a leaf at the closest level. The rest blurs out . . . not too bad.
I have never used Ilford Super XP2 400 film, which is a b&w film developed in C-41, used for color film processing. Not SOOC, but pleasing enough with some post. Although I was out shooting just to use the film up – to see the results – I did make a few photos I liked.
Looks like a cobra, but doesn’t act like a cobra, so it must not be a cobra . . .
I’ve considered deleting this blog . . . but now I don’t think I will.
