Cats In The Fen
I discovered a nearly fully box of 100 sheets of Delta 100. After shooting some of it, I also discovered that it was the box ruined by xrays at the airport. Grrr. I manage to get some sort of image out of what I shot but I'm still really disappointed. The rest of the box is in the trash.
Shot on 4x5 Ilford Delta 100 with Wista 45DX
Out shooting with a friend from school. Found this old elevator in Plato Township.

I finally got enough film exposed to develop and here's the first shot I took with the new camera. It's a nothing shot. But no leaks and everything seems to work fine.
Rise & Fall
Mostly fall. I had this shot fairly well composed. Not a lot of front tilt. The front tilt on this camera is base tilt so while you are tilting you need to apply just a little rise or fall to keep the composition. I think I'll get used to that. But what I defintely have to learn is that I need to really tighten down the front standard after everything is composed. Otherwise it slides down when you're not paying attention. And you get this...
Weeping Cherry with Dandelions
This one, in my back yard on a day with very flat light, slipped down on me a bit also. OK. A lot. The sidewalk was not in the shot I composed. Used a red filter and waited for a long time for a calm few seconds to make the exposure. Not too much movement in the tree.
Another shot in the backyard with a flat, dull sky. Some wind to contend with too. Orange filter didn't seem to do much with the sky as it wasn't really blue.
Food trucks. They have become a fixture in Chicago and the competition is fierce. Bad ones don't last long. Good ones are tracked on Twitter so fans can find them.
I love when the light is reflecting off all the steel and glass, bouncing around the urban canyons. Here we find the city's silly attempt at bus rapid transit. The CTA just can't do anything right. Come to Colombia and see what BRT is all about.
When I unloaded the shots of the volcano (Nevado de Huila) I discovered there were a dozen of so shots left over from a day in Chicago. Way out of date but what the heck. Not time. Summer in the city. Back of my neck getting...
I went for a walk, looking for something to do with the last few sheets of film I had loaded. I have overlooked this little park.
