“If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up.”

Morning views  @Peak District on Fuji Acros 100.

I always liked that film. Shame is I did not shot it more before it was discontinued. But all is good, Acros is back and I can not wait to try fresh new Acros II soon.

Have you shot new Acros II yet?

MEDIUM FORMAT PICTURE OF THE WEEK – Rainy day

Hasselblad 503CW, f4 1/60s +0.6ND 50mm

MFPOTW

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?
