Ilford HP5 Plus 400 | Rollei 35 S

A few weeks ago I ran a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus 400 through my Rollei 35.

The simplicity of the Rollei is a pleasure. No menus to scroll through. JPEG? RAW? None of that. No fretting about lenses or filters. Just a bit of worry about the focus.

When it works out, it works out well.

Some shots from the ‘hood:

Week 24 | November 23 – 29, 2019

Thanksgiving week. Oldest daughter home from college. Youngest one working on applications. Weather is cold and clear. Days too short. Dark by 4:30.

My film cameras are loaded with slower black and white films. Really too much sun to be using them. I shot a bunch of family stuff at the Thursday dinner.

Culled through this week’s work and grabbed these:

Three of the photos I took from my car. Almost feel like that’s cheating.

Northwest Hospital | iPhone 8 Plus

A short medical procedure had me at Northwest Hospital on an incredibly clear morning. Although I had my x100f with me, I took some shots with the iPhone. Some editing in Lightroom and I came away with some shots I rather like.

Here they are:

Week 21 | November 2 – 8, 2019

Sun this week. Warm? Warmer maybe. But the turning of the clocks back has pushed us into the darkness. This is where the drive to shoot starts to wane. Fall colors are still about, just not as abundant. Soon the rains will come.

Here’s some from the past week:

Nordic Heritage Museum. Ballard, Washington. November 3, 2019. Fuji x100f. Astia.
Ballard, Washington. November 3, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.
Loyal Heights, Washington. November 6, 2019. Acros-R.
Fremont, Washington. November 7, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.
Fremont, Washington. November 7, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.
Seattle, Washington. November 7, 2019. Fuji x100f. iPhone 8 Plus.

Week 19 | October 19 – 25, 2019

No film this week. Some Astia jpgs with the x100f and even an edited iPhone pick.

I struggle with the color on the x100f. I wrestle with shooting RAW and using vsco presets. But I don’t want to get bogged down with more choices, more technology.

Anyway, here’s some shots from the past week:

Loyal Heights, Washington. October 19, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.
Fremont, Washington. October 24, 2019. Fuji x100f. Acros-R.
Ballard, Washington. October 25, 2019. Fuji x100f. Astia.
Ballard, Washington. October 25, 2019. Fuji x100f. Astia
Loyal Heights, Washington. October 25, 2019. iPhone 8 Plus.
Memorial Stadium, Seattle, Washington. October 25, 2019. Fuji x100f. Astia.

Week 16 | September 29 – October 4, 2019

More film this week. Many more shots with the Rollei 35 and the Canon AE-1 than with the Fuji x100f. I’m waiting for the Cinestill x-pro 50 scans to arrive in my inbox.

I also picked up some zines. Four from Conspiracy of Cartographers arrived and a few others are on order. Ordered some esoteric film from Analogue Wonderland

Here are a few shots from the past week.
