110/2.8

Newest lens acquisition for the 645 system…arrived from Japan despite the postal strike.

Minimum focus is a tad long for my tastes (1.2m) but it is hand-holdable at 1/60s.

Tri-X pushed to ISO 1600 in D76.

Field-Testing

Shortly after these were taken, the lens completely discombobulated and had to go back to the seller.  Unfortunately the shipping will probably cost me as much as the refund I get back.

In any case, I think I am going to like shooting with the combo…though at times I still wonder why I haven’t given up on MF completely…

So so labour-intensive.

Tri-X 400 pushed to ISO 1600.

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.
