Full Circle

I developed my very first roll of film over six years ago now (it’s hard to believe it has been that long…June 2012!) At the time I was shooting with a black Zeiss Ikon, a 50 Lux, and a Voigtlander 35/1.2 vII.  For a variety of reasons, the gear is finally back.

Dystopian Reality

…or “The Rest of the Roll”.

The smoke from the BC forest fires has been shockingly thick here the last few days; yesterday it seemed as though the world was ending–sunrise was literally 90 minutes later than it should have been.

Our eyes have been stinging, and our throats burning…Apparently the air quality is the equivalent of a few pack-years worth of cigarette smoking.  The first photo was just as the smog started to set in…it looks a little like the set of Star Wars. The rest of the photos were taken before the haze descended.




Because of the sheer amount of effort involved in shooting, developing, and scanning 120 film, I am often disappointed in the final results obtained.

…Today was not one of those days.



We made these on our 18th Wedding Anniversary…because we won’t have enough to cry about in another few years.



Can’t decide which one I prefer, though for me I think the B&W might be a stronger image…

Colour-corrected Cinestill, because that’s what I had in the camera at the time.
