Week 14 – . . .and then it doesn’t

Back in Week 11, Beth and I took advantage of the early spring sunshine to take a box camera to one of our picturesque local cemeteries.  I also took along my Nikon FG and some black and white film.

After trudging around in the snow enjoying the wrought iron and shadows, we stopped to haunt our favorite drive-in for the first ice cream of the spring.

Camera: Nikon FG

Lens: 28mm

Film: Eastman Double-X 5222

Developed in Ilfosol 3 for 6:00 at 70F.

Week 13 – Life Goes On

Spring is here and life goes on.

I have fallen behind with posting, but I continue to shoot film.  Finding the time to develop was difficult, and then the faithful Epson v700 began acting up.

I don’t really know what was wrong with the scanner. I performed all of the usual troubleshooting steps to no avail. I updated software, cleaned the glass, rebooted everything, and even tried a different computer.  I tried both VueScan and the Epson software. The results were consistently garbage.  Then they weren’t.

In the interest of striking while the iron is hot, I’m calling this Week 13.  These were shot with my Chinon CM7, a perennial favorite, with a 28mm lens.  The film is Eastman Double X 5222 souped in Ilfosol 3 for 6:00.  Feel the grain. . .

The roll began with some errands and Cricket. We caught the MBTA at the Hay St crossing. I was able to grab a few shots at a brush fire later in the day.
