modern driftwood

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.

 

In the winter a big storm hit San Sebastian and a flood damaged all the four bridges and part of the beach front. The next day I went for a walk with my Zorki to see the destruction. I developed them, scanned them about a month later with my old Epson v330 scanner and then forgot all about them, because I was busy posting more recent stuff. Of course that’s always the danger when you shoot a lot.

Last month I was definitely taking it easy in comparison. I didn’t shoot any digital and apart from that just my leftovers of K400 film with my Olympus XA and one roll of 120 with my Rolleicord. Last night after shooting a roll of 120 in the Rolleicord and some 35mm in the XA I tried something new and developed film in two tanks at once. I guess with normal development this would get confusing quickly and invite mistakes, but with stand development in Rodinal it actually worked quite well. I still have 4 rolls of 35mm to develop and will probably develop them in one go as well. Now, if only I could cleverly minimise the scanning time as well!

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

Nowadays not only driftwood ends up on the shores after a flood. I wonder where the rest of the car is.

Not many surfers out there because it actually still looked too dangerous. These two came back out after a very short time as well.

There was sand even on the other side of the street.

Police tape to keep people off the beach promenade the night before.

The flood took a whole stretch of railings.

The flood took some of the railings from the first bridge as well.

Already the next day the repair work was going on. They actually finished repairing all the bridges and the the railings at the promenade before the summer. Only the repairs on the breakwater at the end of Zurriola beach took longer and are finishing now.
