tree climbers

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.

 

The most adventurous part of today was to hunt down packages containing prints, foamboard for mounting those prints and of course film! What a difficult undertaking, but after a lot of waiting and running around I have all the different bits and pieces together for the next proper adventure. If you want to see what’s been brewing, then you should come to the Rösslstube, Friedrichstraße 37, Dresden on the 06.06.2015, 7pm to the Vernissage of the release exhibition of the magazine Der Maulkorb #15! I’ll post a proper announcement tomorrow when I’m not dead tired after all that package hunting and from the accumulated tiredness of too much travelling!

But now to some pictures! These were a little more difficult to process because of the contrast. The right amount of visibility in the shadows while at the same time keeping the lighter parts intact gave me a little bit of a headache, especially in colour. This was a challenge in many situations actually, because going from shade to bright sunshine generally was 3 stops over there, not two like in most places where I shoot normally. This was from one of 3 Kodak rolls I shot on the trip. The rest was all done on cheap Fuji 400 film from the drugstore. Incidentally, what works best with my wallet also works best with my Pakon.

By the way, I find colour street photography difficult and I haven’t done much of it. I was challenging myself a bit on that trip. Depending on the outcome of this experiment I will decide how much colour I will take with me on the next trip and whether I’ll bother to figure out how to develop colour in bulk Kodak chemicals.

All pictures taken with: Leica M6 + Zeiss ZM C-Biogon 35mm f/2.8.
Kodak Farbwelt 400 developed in Fuji Hunt C41 Kit.

The girl in the background was doing gymnastics, but I was more interested in the boy.

Yes, the soil really was that red. Maybe even more so.

Kinda looks like the sculpture is spying on the couple!

Maybe the other pictures didn’t quite look like I was on a different continent, but how about a tree with spikes on the trunk? Never seen anything like it in Europe!
