Salvia

Salvia is the Latin name for sage.  There are so many kinds!  Russian, Mexican, hummingbird, white, purple . . . the California climate where I live is perfect for so many.  If I could, I would fill my garden with them – the pungent aroma, the colors, the variety are endlessly fascinating.  Additionally, they are easy to grow and don’t need much water.

Another cross-processed and rescued Velvia image . . . absolutely hideous in CP and barely salvageable in b&w!  What’s a girl to do?  The camera, though, does a fine job when the user doesn’t mess up.  The lens is a Xenar, uncoated, which gives it a particularly vintage quality that modern digital do not have.

Last weekend I went up to the local botanical gardens with three different film cameras, each loaded with different film.  I just wanted to use them up!  I haven’t sorted out what film is with what picture, or what camera, but once I do sit down – this weekend – it will be interesting to see what combinations end up being my favorite(s).
