I finally got into the darkroom and started developing some films from last October… I’ve got 5 done, but still have another 5 to go. Things have been busy but it’s something I should really make time for. This week’s picture is from a roll that I only got developed a few weeks ago, and it was taken last November…. I see a trend here.
Anyways, the photo is of the big ferris wheel at Place de Concorde in Paris (it’s not always there, but was for the Christmas craft fair going on). Taken last November with my Agfa Optima on Kodak E100 slide film. I’d spent the afternoon walking around that end of town, went to see a photo exhibit at the Petit Palais, and grabbed this shot on my way back to the Metro station.
I’m really glad I started photo Friday, while I sometimes struggle to find interesting posts on other days of the week, I always have a great idea for which photo to use each Friday. I should really start putting pics aside when I edit them as I often forget the one I wanted to use (which has the great consequence of me usually finding others equally as good or even better)…
This week’s photo is from our recent trip to London. Taken on Totenham Court Road, this was the front window of a camera store I’ve seen many times and even bought film in several year’s ago. I liked the colourful storefront and grabbed this quick pic with my Agfa Optima, using expired Kodak E100. While the film expired a few years ago, it’s been kept frozen and hasn’t let me down yet, unfortunately my stash is almost out and I can’t afford the fresh stuff.
