In to the Unknown

I discovered a number of older 35mm film cameras that were part of my father’s estate. They are the point and shoot variety and I have decided to give each of them a try. First up is a Canon SURE SHOT with auto focus, 38mm 1:2.8 lens and has built-in flash. My method for keeping track of the images is to take an image with my phone each time I capture an image. This will give me both a visual reference and a geographical reference.

When I finish the roll, I plan to try my own developing using CineStill DF 96. I will then digitize the images by shooting the negatives with my DSLR. I would love to take the images into a wet lab, but don’t have one readily available.

Instant gratification not included!

This image could also have been better with a shorter exposure to bring out the detail in the flowing water.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Tamron SP 28-75mm F/2.8, ISO 50, f/11, 20 sec, 10 stop ND filter.

In hindsight, I think I could have gone with a lesser stop filter and shorter exposure to maintain more detail in the water.

Although I was enjoying being near Lake Superior and Split Rock Lighthouse, this single pussy willow bush caught my attention.

Dream Walking

On a trail, eyes closed, I see differently.  I hear the silence between the notes sung by birds.  I hear the stream flowing nearby.  I am here, in this place, at this moment.  And it is enough, for this moment and this place.
