open 25 hours a day

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.

 

Since my health is acting up these days I’m neither shooting nor developing as much as I would like. However, I’m using the downtime to edit the remaining rolls from my last trip. I only have a couple of rolls left to edit and I’m already quite pleased with the results. A number of the shots are somewhat different from what I usually shoot, because there just wasn’t so much happening on the streets, but there were still enough street shots to keep me happy. I also shot a mix of colour and black and white, so the atmosphere keeps changing from roll to roll which is interesting. Normally I just stick with one or at most two types of film when I travel, but in this case I kept switching between Kentmere 400, T-Max 400, Kodak Farbwelt 400, Kodak Gold 200 and Cinestill 800T. The result seems a little disjointed, but I think I picked the right kind of film every time. I won’t be travelling anytime soon, but next time I think I will follow a similar strategy, because it worked rather well.

All pictures taken with: Leica M6 + Zeiss ZM C-Biogon 35mm f/2.8.

Can you get books about Roland Barthes at a newspaper stand in Europe? I very much doubt it.

This is probably my favourite of this lot. I have no idea why.
