Back in October/November 2021 I was going through my old posts looking at all the different photos I’d taken and deciding which ones I should keep and which I should prune to make sure I don’t run out of storage space. There were entire posts that I deleted to make room for new photos; I think now that I will bring some of those pictures back. A lot of those were family pictures and I have many more since the funeral so it might keep the blog going for a bit longer. As a mini project, it hearkens back to an assignment I did in my Intermediate Photo class, and it will be good to revisit this subject.
So here are more family hangout pictures this time post-memorial with my cousin Chris and his family.
I went back to my Nikon F2A (and good thing, too). This is the first time I used Ilford HP5 (except for large format) and my first impression is that it’s sharp but also that it has some of the same characteristics of XP2 in its look, namely to contrast. I’d say that they look pretty similar to each other, and a noticeably different look from my old Kodak standbys.
