Shot in 35mm film on my Minolta X700 12 years ago, before I started this photoblog. Film still seems to have a richness that is lacking in digital.
Since I am still in a boot due to a foot fracture, recovering from broken ribs and some other skeletal issues I have taken some time to look at some older images to see if they can be re-edited, etc. , such as this image. Actually am going to go out this morning with my camera and see how things go.
Hope everyone has a good Sunday!
From our rose bush:
Maybe I have finally captured a good image of a red rose?
Partial view of our rose bush this year. I have been shooting red roses for years and it seems the color red is not my color to capture. Very frustrating. Something about red……no matter what technique or approach I use, it seems to always end in a near miss at best. The proof of that is above :-). My best effort or result to date, in my opinion, is a shot I took 10 years ago with my Minolta X700 35mm film camera. There was a black background and the rest of the image was fairly dark, but the result looked pretty good.
