After a walk in Palermo and getting a wonderful book of Annemarie Heinrich’s work yesterday, we decided to go to the enchanting little bar in Barracas again to dance a few tangos and listen to some music. This time I took my Leica as well and shot a couple of rolls of RPX400 that I threw into the bag just in case. It was a bit difficult with the light at f/2.8, even shooting at ISO 1600. Before long I might need a faster lens actually and this was especially noticeable around here where I was mostly stuck at ISO 400. With these 2 rolls I will risk the 1600 because I wasn’t planning on shooting them in the first place, but I didn’t want to risk ruining the whole bunch by pushing them freely. After the tango we also got a chance to see La Boca and the Caminito at night and I even saw a bit of the real harbour. However, I didn’t take any pictures because I didn’t have any more film on me.

And with this the picture taking didn’t end: Today we went to the Feria de Mataderos which is normally on Sundays. It was today instead because of the elections tomorrow. I shot a roll with the Leica and one with the Rollei, which actually happened to be my 50th roll of this trip. I still have 3 more rolls left and wouldn’t be surprised if I finish them off as well. We actually have one full day left tomorrow and then fly back on Monday evening – volcanic ash permitting of course. (Of course, secretly I wouldn’t really mind being stuck here in this wonderful city a few days longer.)

All pictures taken with: Leica M6 + Zeiss ZM C-Biogon 35mm f/2.8.
RPX400 @1600 stand-developed in Rodinal 1:100.

I was practicing the skill of shooting on trains with the Leica.

It was working quite well actually.

Hanging out in one of my favourite bars. They have wonderful ginger and orange tea. A little dark for f/2.8 though.

This one turned out more balanced.
