Two Versions Again

One is shot with the M6 and Summilux 50 on Portra 400 pushed to 800, and pre-flashed in Rodinal 1:100; the other is shot on the Hasselblad with 8mm extension tube on Portra 800 at box speed. ┬áNot sure why the highlights are so burned on the one…both were shot at the same time, with comparable settings.

PB & J

Sorry for the “messy mouthful” shots, but it was just such a happy moment…

Guessed at exposure and got lucky too.

Oil

The North Saskatchewan River Valley, and in the distance, plumes of steam and smoke rising from the Strathcona Refinery complex.

I’m not an “activist” per se, but Alberta has the world’s highest incidence of Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s, UC) Multiple Sclerosis, and Asthma–all autoimmune-related diseases in some manner.

Sure, maybe it’s the cold; but I often wonder whether there is a link…
