Cactus Flowers at Sunset

About 3 weeks ago I dropped off some slide film I finally finished up.  The problem was I couldn’t advance my film or rewind it halfway through the roll.  Off to the neighborhood repair shop, and voilà!  Just a this and a that, and the film worked.  I advanced a few and finished up the roll.

This is a view of my neighbor’s garden – he has one of the finest “southwestern” gardens I have seen because it is well kept and not full of weeds.  At sunset, with soft light, a row of blooms – quite lovely.

I was hoping to get a lot of photography done this week since I am off from work, but instead I decided to break my wrist and finger on Easter Sunday, just to do something different.

Awhile ago I loaded up the FM2n with Rollei Crossbird Creative Edition film. It is very, very green. That is okay, but not a good suggestion for landscapes . . . green and then some. Anyway, it is an interesting film, and when there is red in the image, and blues or turquoises, the color skews are not unpleasant. This is one of the two I liked as far as color from the roll.

A few weeks ago we met up with some friends in Ojai, California, for a luncheon date. We got there early, traveling through backroads, and then wandering through the different parts of town. This was taken in one of my favorite stores in the world, Rains, which has clothing to kitchen supplies, and much in between.

I used film and the Nikon FM2N – but don’t recall the film used, and am too lazy to look it up right now!
