All Kinds of Doors

With COVID019 we are all receiving a lot more deliveries. One of me neighbors has everything delivered. We only see them when they are claiming a package.

So a Salute to Delivery Truck Door…..

First Doors for 2021: The Toscana

The Toscana was a ‘Snowbird resort catering mostly to Canadians and people from the northern Midwest USA. The most interesting Door at The Toscana was the Garage Door. Here from the outside, a very steep entrance. When driving in you almost feels like you’re going to hit it, mostly because the automatic door opener didn’t work very well. from the outside.

Here exiting from below…..

So I thought I would start the year with something different, In this case a joint posting of my images and my husbands. That will happen from time to time.

Below the typical Toscana Condo Entrance, crowded by parked cars:

There are several Condo Buildings, including more upscale townhouses……….

The Condos are where I stayed last year when I was at the Mayo Clinic. All in all, if I had to be sick, it was a pretty nice place to stay,

Prelim Discussion of IR-Sensitive B&W Films Part II: Washi-Z ISO 400

Arcosanti_Yucca

Washi-Z 400, above with a dark red filter.  I start with that statement because for some reason I didn’t shoot the first few images with dark red.  Instead I had used an orange filter for some reason:

Washi-Films were never intended for use in still cameras.  They were specialty films and most were developed for recording some type of motion, including a sound version.But nowadays these specialty films are creeping into the revitalized 35 mm film market.

And finally, two images from the Tonto Natural Bridge in Arizona.  Representing some of the early orange filter exposures.

So now what?  I’ve ordered more Washi-Z 400, and because the IR effect did not seem that strong, even with the red filter.  I’m going to try it with the IR-695 filter.  Watch for new results coming soon……
