Week 25 | November 30 – December 6, 2019

The weeks are piling up. Nearly six months with it now. Half a year of weekly photos isn’t much. Not compared to Woody Campbell’s decade long photo a day marathon.

But the commitment to post once a week, the use of three unique cameras and living in (and traveling to) a beautiful area certainly helps inspire the practice.

Here’s a few from this past week:

Discovery Park | Ilford Delta 400 | Canon AE-1 Program

I haven’t used Ilford Delta 400 before. But there are favorable reviews here and here that spurred my interest.

I loaded my Canon AE-1 with the 20mm lens and went to Discovery Park on two separate but cloudy days. There was even a bit of rain.

My first pass at these, I wasn’t that impressed. But going through them again and finally selecting a few for posting here, I think this film is a worthy addition to my rotation.

West Seattle Parade

Summer in Seattle is Seafair. Beginning in early July and culminating with the Torchlight Parade, several Seattle communities host parades. The Seattle All City Band draws me to many of them.

This past week we were at West Seattle, Olympia, White Center and Chinatown.

The photos below all come from my Fuji x100f and were shot in jpeg only with the Astia film simulation.
