Wo ist die Brücke?

I shot some more Ilford OrthoPlus, this time in the Fuji GW690III. This is another camera I probably don’t shoot enough. But this film, I’m liking it. And initial darkroom experiments suggest it looks better as a lith print (images to come).

I took it down to Old City on a bright, cold day. I tried to avoid the usual Race Street Pier shots, and the streets were empty, so a lot of #peoplelessphilly shots.

Here is nobody under the bridge

 

Nobody here either
I think there are people in the builidng
I wouldn’t expect anyone here
Here is nobody in front of the bridge

Now

I thought that I would use the Ilford OrthoPlus in the Diana, but I am enjoying it more in the Rolleiflex.

Recently we had horribly warm January weather, so I took advantage and took a walk around South Philly with the Rollei. Maybe it was the weather or the fact that nobody is out on Sunday, but everything felt post-apocalyptic. The OrthoPlus fit that mood for sure.

I shot 4 rolls. Looking forward to printing these.

All the way to Tacoma

Spent part of this week outside of Phoenix on an business trip. As usual, I spent most of my time in the hotel, but I did sneak out one evening for some shots of the golf course with my Diana and a roll of Ilford Fp4.

The Tide is Low

I have been to the Washington Avenue Pier along the Delaware River a couple of times to shoot. But yesterday was the first time I was there with the magical combination of low tide and golden hour. The low tide gave me the opportunity to get down among some of the pilings for some more interesting shots. And the late afternoon winter light was incredible.

For the second time in a few days, I was out shooting with my brother and sister. I’m sure they took some amazing photos. I was a little hamstrung with just a single roll of MZ-3 and my Nikon Fm2. But I was not unsatisfied!

Holiday Stroll

Walked around South Philadelphia with my brother and sister this week. I took the Rolleiflex, loaded with Ilford Fp4.

Lately I have traded in photo walks for studio work. So this was a nice break and a chance to get outside and catch whatever light there was.

It was also fun to shoot with my siblings. We do this every so often and it’s always a good time. Seems photography runs in the family.
