Yesterday’s forecast was dead wrong. Fortunately my flowers didn’t hear it.
I like magnolias because they’re unafraid to be the first ones out, and they’re more of a rugged beauty than the delicate ones who follow.
Similar to my last walk around Longwood Gardens with my medium format camera, this time with negative color film instead of positive. These are all 16 shots from the roll.
West Chester, the county seat of Chester County, has some great neo-classical architecture to go along with its quirky small town charm.
I had to finish a roll to try the new chemicals last week, these are the results. Taken with my Pentax 645n and 120/4 Macro on Kodak Portra 800 film. Developed in Kodak chemicals that…
I took Ben to meet my dad in Lancaster for a classical guitar recital. I think I expected something a little more challenging, but hey – this is Lancaster after all.

Shots from walking a couple loops around town while the weather’s been nice, including a shot of my hairdresser Jay, whose son Aiden is a continuing miracle.
We were lucky yesterday to have several of the author/veterans of Jeanne Rapp’s new book, “They Conquer Who Endure”, present to sign our copies and tell their stories first hand.
Baldwin’s Book Barn is owned by at least three cats. Or at least *they* think so.
Bits and pieces from in and around West Chester…
Do you remember slide shows, in an actual projector? Fuji Provia 400X is a “chrome”, or a color positive image, instead of a negative like most film.
Taking the Acela this week through New Haven, where I had a 45 minute layover. Shots with my trusty Pentax 645n and both the 120/4 Macro and 45/2.8, on Fuji 800Z.
This is the second roll from my Saturday visit to Longwood Gardens, this one color Kodak Portra 800. Like the previous post, it too shows off the beauty of the large 120 size negatives – and of course the beauty of Longwood Gardens itself.
