Ilford Delta 400 | Rollei 35 S

Back from Moonphoto comes this weeks scans: Ilford Delta 400 shot with the Rollei 35 S.

The first three shots are architectural. Two from Ballard, including the first one of the award winning Ballard Library, and the third a building on the campus of Northwest Hospital.

Other writers have gushed about this film. I won’t go that far. My favorite black and white film is probably the Fomopan 100. But I may have been misusing this film. With the high, bright overcast sky, my pictures seem washed out a bit. I’d like to see more inky blacks; more charcoal.

But the following are acceptable to me. Especially the second and third.

Carkeek Park | Ektar 100 | Canon AE-1

Going through the archives and finding some work that I want to put here.

In 2016 I traded my Nikon DSLR for a Canon AE-1 Program and 50mm lens. Loaded up with Portra and Ektar and Tri-x, I began a slow return to photography that has only recently begun to accelerate.

Here are some of my first efforts with the Ektar 100. Carkeek Park makes a pretty compelling subject any season. But the fall to winter season and then winter to spring are my favorite periods.
