I was rearranging my 35 mm storage when I found this cameraRolling out images from a more than 2 year old partially exposed roll of Ilford HP5. I know it’s that old because I found some photo notes.
So We’ll start with three of the older images. I love this Power Plant and always go there to test new films and new cameras. So I decided to make a photo project to capture images from everywhere the Plant is visible. I only got this far. But I will pick this up as a theme for Frugal Film 2020.
I finished off the roll this Fall with my Zenitar Fisheye lens:
So this camera is one of my two options for the Frugal Film Project 2020. What do you think?
OK, I’m a believer. Photographers were always raving about Ilford HP5. But I didn’t share the fascination until this past Spring. On my Journey to Phoenix I wanted to take 35 mm B&W film. The only thing I had in the fridge was Ilford HP5. So I grabbed the 5 rolls and headed out………
And I’ve finally discovered the situations where the ‘GRAIN” works for me. Here is a summary of my HP5 Best Case (all HP5 except where noted):

September on my Other Blog is all about B&W in the Garden.
Something that I want to spend more time on……..B&W Flowers. More from the Mayo Clinic Cactus Garden……
Above: same flowers, different perspectives.
Below: Same Flowers, different f-stops; right has more bokeh.
My home garden is blooming….time to move outside and work on some local B&W Flower Portraits.
P.S. : I will actually have more B&W flowers coming in August. Developed a roll recently that is all flowers from my garden.
