As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

Being in the Basque Country also has its downsides. One of them is that doing paperwork concerning the Spanish government always involves metal detectors and x-rays. Sure, I can understand the notion. After all I know with which methods the Basques have struggled for their independence in the past. However, obviously it’s annoying and even more so for a film photographer like me. The other day I therefore couldn’t take any film with me at all although I was running errands in town. And since I’m not shooting any digital this month it meant walking around completely without a camera again. What an odd feeling! One would think that walking around without having to keep the eyes open for subject matter would be relaxing, but actually it’s rather frustrating instead.

The pictures I’m showing you today were taken with my Zorki before my last trip to Germany. It was already getting dark and I was exploring some rather narrow side streets, so these turned out a little thin and grainy. However, they still have something about them.

All pictures taken with: Zorki 4K and Jupiter 12 35mm f/2.8.
Kentmere 400 developed in Tetenal Ultrafin 1:20, 16min.

Self portrait. Shame it’s so grainy. I should try this with medium format on a brighter day instead.

I just couldn’t walk past this one without taking a picture. I guess it might need some colour though.

Something I like about the people in San Sebastian is that they take care of their elderly.

Backyards and patios are rather dark and small around here. This is actually one of the bigger ones.

No wonder that most flats are rather dark around here!
