WTC 1995

WTC 1995

I took this picture of the World Trade Center in July (or August) 1995.
Seeing it now and remembering the experience is very strange, even a bit eerie, I must admit.
Don’t forget those who have lost their lives in the tragic event in 2001.

Of course I used a compact camera (Konika BM-201) with film (Kodacolor VR Plus 200) back then.
I decided to leave it as is, i.e. no post-processing of colors or anything like that.

I’ve been away from the blogosphere for quite some time, so to all my friends here – sorry I couldn’t stay in contact or visit your blogs during the last month.

The last picture about the motto “Balance” and yet another balanced rock.
I took this photo in 1997 in the Arches National Park (Utah, USA) with a Konika BM-201, an analog compact camera.
Usually, I try to show my latest pictures here, but I thought what better way to demonstrate that you don’t need an expensive camera for taking nice landscape pictures?
The 35mm film I used was a Kodak Kodacolor VR Plus 200. I prefer its organic, vivid and saturated colors over the somewhat neutral colors of today’s digital cameras.

Autumn Is Coming

The signs are undeniable – autumn is coming. Leaves are changing, falling, the air smells different, it’s getting colder.
I took this picture on Kodacolor VR Plus 200 film that expired in August 2005 (i.e. more than 5 years ago) – and all photos turned out fine with excellent saturated colors.
Interestingly, I learnt yesterday that Kodak is currently celebrating its 125th anniversary.

If you find a roll of film that is expired – don’t throw it away, but just give it a try. The colors you get are very different from the neutral (but sometimes boring) colors you normally get with digital cameras nowadays.

Have a great weekend!
