Ektachrome is getting closer…

The news is a few days old now, but Kodak has announced Ektachrome will be sold starting Oct. 1:

Of course it says that it’s already for sale but every place I’ve checked says it’ll be delivered the middle of the month, but the super 8 will be sold right from Kodak’s website on the 1st.  Damn good news. I can’t say that the price excites me ($13 for a roll of 135 film or $40 for a super 8 cartridge) but I still plan on getting some and shooting it.  If you’re interested in seeing some of the first footage shot with this film, check out Ignacio Benedeti’s blog: http://mimundoensuper-8.blogspot.com/2018/09/ferrol-7294-trailer-especial-para-la.html

Fog in Garden of the Gods

Colorado gets about 300 days of sunshine and is very dry, so something that is quite rare for us is foggy days.  It happened once before when I was driving tours through but I didn’t have my camera that day, this one I did; it was early October (last year) and this cloud was thick, heavy and hovered over Colorado Springs all day.

People that day weren’t very enthusiastic about tours, which gave me plenty of time to drive around the park myself and take pictures.
