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.


The March Hare


`Have you guessed the riddle yet?’ the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.

`No, I give it up,’ Alice replied: `what’s the answer?’

`I haven’t the slightest idea,’ said the Hatter.

`Nor I,’ said the March Hare.


That Lomo though…


This is Lomo CN 400 film…which it turns out, is apparently rebranded Ferrania Solaris FG Plus 400.  Now here’s where it gets even more interesting: This was actually shot at ISO 800, which is intriguing because it is cheaper (and seems to fare better…) than actual Lomo 800!

These films seem to be quite sensitive to exposure: under, and you are going to get some grain.  Nonetheless, not altogether bad value for the money.
