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.

 

Out there it’s ISO 1600 weather, grey, cold and rainy, so I didn’t even bother taking a camera with me when we went out to run errands. And just as I suspected I only saw people trying to escape the dismal weather, boring! Photographically the day wasn’t lost though: One thing we did was to collect a package from the post-office, which included some folding bottles for my colour development chemicals. If I can’t shoot, I might as well try to develop the many colour rolls that I have had sitting in a drawer since the summer. It’s either that or finally putting them in the freezer!

Even though the weather is awful, I’m hoping that tomorrow I get the chance to shoot a roll of film when we go to a nearby town to dance some tango. Yes, I’m finally dancing again after 2 agonising years without it because of my illness! I was actually afraid that dancing would worsen my symptoms, but luckily I haven’t noticed any major issues yet. You can’t imagine how happy this makes me! Tango has been a very important part of my life for many years and living without it was rather difficult for me. I’m glad that it’s now back in my life in full force, listening to tangos every day, practicing, watching tango videos and documentaries (e.g. the BBC documentary about La Confiteria Ideal or my favourite video of Javier and Geraldine dancing a milonga) and so on.

To come back to photography though: Apart from watching tango videos I have also scanned the rest of the roll of which I already showed you some street shots yesterday. The rest of the roll was shot in a park nearby.

All pictures taken with: Zorki 4K and Jupiter 12 35mm f/2.8.

I love shots like this! Always a compositional challenge.

Those were two, if not three dogs!And the guy is not floating, he’s sitting on the backrest of a bench.

Back then it was still sunny around here. I miss that.

I was actually exploring the side paths in the hope of catching little details like this.

Good that I didn’t expose for highlights. Or did I?
