Grain

I had forgotten how much I love the look of silver grain, the moment when you see your developed film for the first time, or even the scans. And sometimes there is the odd shot that makes my heart jump from the sheer beauty of that grain. Just the grain itself…

Both Icarex 35S with Zeiss Tessar 50/2.8 and Kodak Trix400; lab scans. Light leaks and all (or wherever this kind of streaking is coming from – hints highly appreciated), these two images make me really happy. Their beautiful grain does.

Happy Mis-takes…

After I finally had gotten around to collect the few rolls of film I had shot over the last two or three years and had them developed last week, I also got back some unexpected double-exposures. I rarely bring myself around to play around with double-exposures on purpose, so when they happen by accident (= by me being sloppy with marking exposed rolls of film properly), I do enjoy them. Here are a few I cropped out of a continuous 15-frame-or-so-negative. I think these date back to summer 2016 or 2017… Not sure. North sea, Norderney.

All shot on Portra 160, lab-scanned.

Also, I just switched to wordpress block editor. If something looks dodgy in the layout, let me know. Still getting used to the new editor…

Wiener Festwochen

Just got two rolls of film developed, so here are a few pictures I took during the opening of the Wiener Festwochen. Used Ilford Delta 3200 for the first time, and I have to say I really like how it came out. Nice grain!

This guy had brought his own chair with him.

She looked so thoughtful…

Little guy for sure saw more of the whole thing than me!

His gaze amazed me.

My favourite picture… Don’t know why, but I really like it.

Some weirdness going on with my lens…

Smile!

Watching…

All picures taken with my Kiev 4 rangefinder. Lovely camera, my Russian lady!

Wonder which picture you like best…
