Recently, I had some time to kill between two events on a beautiful Friday in Libertyville, IL. Oly was already loaded with some Kodak Gold 400 film, and I thought it was a good opportunity to slap on the 135mm prime and go "hunt some orc." Well, some flowers and leaves, anyway. I attempted to look for some interesting combinations of color, pattern and shape. I wanted to achieve a more intimate rather than a global look. The film was developed and scanned by a lab in Kansas, and I was actually quite pleased with the quality of the scans. Photos were processed in Adobe Lightroom.
On my way to work the other day, I stopped by to take a few flower photographs near a busy intersection. All the commuters must have thought I was nuts. But stopping by for 10 minutes to enjoy the beauty is not too bad, is it? Taken on Olympus om-1n film 35mm camera with Kodak Ektar 100 film. 135mm for the yellow flowers and 50mm f/1.4 for the rest. V550 scans.
A small set of photographs taken in Malmo, Sweden with ancient Oly 35 RC cam. Film used was Ilford HP5+ pushed to ISO 800 and developed in D76 1:1. I encountered several modern shapes which seemed to work well by themselves, or blended with the older formations made by man. The train station also provided some interesting opportunities.
