first post of the new year
Happy New Year! About time for another post. It’s been so cold out lately that I haven’t been going out to shoot as much as I usually do. I just came back from a walk downtown to pick up a roll of film; walking there was okay, but walking back—against the wind—was pretty rough.
Got a package in the mail yesterday… a nice-looking Pentacon Six. It seems to be working all right so far, but I caught the flu and was in bed all of yesterday, so I haven’t had time to figure it out yet. I’m afraid that I’ll mess up winding the first roll of film! Results to come… 🙂 Until then, some 35mm scans.
The first batch is from a roll of Ilford Pan F 50 that I shot with a Canon AE-1 (28mm f/2.8 lens) with a severe light leak. I’m going to order a kit to fix it, since it’s in excellent working order besides that. It’s a shame that most of the photos on the roll are ruined, because I quite like some of them.
They were looking at the “Friendship Arch” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PhilaChinaArch.jpg) in the center of Chinatown, which was having some construction done to it. The light leak isn’t too bad in this one.
Not really sure what was going on here. There were no signs of a fire, but many firemen about.
I’m pretty sure there was a drug deal going on here. Good thing it was broad daylight and there were lots of people around, or else I probably would have been in trouble.
The next batch was taken with a Pentax k1000, 50mm f/2.0 lens, apx400.
Now a few from Boston:
In case you can’t see, his sandals and the newspaper both say “sports”.
Same character as the previous frame, taking a little snooze.
Hunter in a pretty scene.
Back to Philadelphia…
This frame and the next were taken in the Italian Market, where you can get some of the best pizza ever.
The last four were taken at the Perelman Museum, which is part of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
