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.
It’s been a while since I took this shot and it took me a little bit to figure out just where this had been… It was a field of poppies in Chantilly, France of course. We were there on a visit to the chateau (which I highly recommend, I liked it even more than Versailles, certainly nowhere near as crowded). It’s fall in Paris right now, and the leaves are turning and this summery scene was what I needed to see today…. Taken with my xpan, 45mm lens, expired Kodak E100.
