MEDIUM FORMAT PICTURE OF THE WEEK – Rainy day

Rainy day

I walked up to Curbar Edge in hope to catch some interesting light that morning. The forecast was optimistic so I walked. Unfortunately light did not happen. Actually, nothing happened that morning.

There was no view, no light and it started to rain.  I did only one exposure this morning, this one on Kodak Trix 400.

I like it because of the mood of the shot, it summarizes the feeling that morning…

 

Do you shoot Kodak TRIX?

What’s your favourite B&W film?

Photography is a strong tool, a propaganda device, and a weapon for the defence of the environment…and therefore for the fostering of a healthy human race and even very likely for its survival.

Your own photography is never enough. Every photographer who has lasted has depended on other peoples pictures too – photographs that may be public or private, serious or funny but that carry with them a reminder of community.

Everyone will take one great picture, I’ve done better because I’ve taken two.
