It isn’t often I get through two rolls of film in a couple of weeks. Normally I shoot about two rolls a month.
Why am I shooting so much?
I guess the first reason is travel. I shoot a lot when I am going somewhere. I shoot photos in the same time that people read books or listen to music. I take photos to not be bored.
I end up with lots of boring photos like this. That said, I think the main reason I shot a lot in the last two weeks was the excitement for being back shooting film. I’d used the M10P for a while and hadn’t shot any film.
Lots of these photos too. They don’t always turn out well. Rarely do they in fact. That said, some of my favourite photos were taken through the window of a train or bus.
A long time ago in Canada I had my favourite lens stolen. Honestly, I change lenses a lot. People will say I have never stuck to anything. I used the 40mm Summicron exclusively for 4 years. I couldn’t afford anything else but I loves that lens. I recently got the chance to get another. I love this lens. Feels like coming home.
All the photos here are Ilford HP5 at 3200.
This is a boring roll, I apologize. They aren’t always interesting.
I do really love the next photo though:
This was early in the morning. The air quality has been terrible lately, so much so that it looks like fog. The field had just been plowed. One of my favourite photos in a long time. It was very much how I’d imagined it would be.
I’ve been doing this a lot lately too. Cat photos are boring as well I guess. I love my cats though. I think I would be perfectly happy for a roll to consist only of photos of them. In this photo, Spoko is sitting in her favourite spot in our living room under a Nicholas Dominic Talvola print. He named her, so it is fitting that she loves this spot.
Maybe the next roll will be more exciting. I have several trips planned in the next little while. Including one to Kyoto / Osaka. Looking forward to that.
That trip will be with team Leica Korea, haha. More on that in the weeks to come 😉
Other than that, I’m happy to say if you’re in Korea soon I’ll be opening an analogue photography class at the Leica Akadamie here. During the class I’ll cover all sorts of film related topics from the basics of loading film to developing and even perhaps some printing.
I just realized half of this roll is photos of trees.
No trees here. Sucks this photo. They were all looking at me a split second before. I was super bummed when I saw it.
This was second last photo of the roll. It is boring but I quite like it. Iksan feels like this to me. It feels like Iksan.
The last photo. It is usually of my wife or one of the cats. Wife wasn’t in the mood so Spoko stepped up.
That’s all for today.
Catch you next time 😉
