snowy days and not-so-snowy days
As the title indicates, Philadelphia was greeted by eight inches of snow last Wednesday, which was a welcome surprise. I took two walks while it was falling so that I could see the city with fresh snow, as opposed to muddy slush. I got pretty soaked, but my camera, as always, made it through unscathed. Following are some shots from that day and night, as well as some street shots from other not-so-snowy days. Hope you’re all doing well.
Pentax k1000, 50mm, HP5+ pushed to 1600 (as a side note, I’m not usually a huge fan of HP5+ at 400 [I much prefer Tri-X], but wow, was I impressed with the quality of it when pushed two stops!)
Taken from inside of my car
It’s rare that Hunter allows me to photograph him, so I was very pleased when I saw this one, as well as the next shot (though I prefer this one).
Days with less precipitation…
Pretty terrible composition, but had to act quickly.
My friend (her hat, actually) didn’t quite make it out of the frame…
Now some Tri-X and some not-so-snowy days.
Hunter, our friend, Denny, and I were walking to a flea market last Sunday, and I turned the corner by the carriage-horse stables to see this scene waiting for me. Needless to say, I was quite pleased. I think it will make a nice print. (I think it’s a little tilted, though… will have to fix that first.)
Watch your step…
Yes, you’re reading it correctly… his tent actually says “Block Captain”.
Well, that’s all for now. Should have more in about a week. Cheers!
