Bustling or empty?

Meanwhile, nearer to the town market square, on another kind-of-square, people are still walking by, moving, but not frozen in action.

    I like, because of the long exposure, the almost surreal’ness of this image, in how it shows the area eerily, yet peacefully empty, but was most likely the opposite, and full of people, noise, commotion, regular daily activity and life.

    And, there is one of those oddball trees again! Those must be prevalent in your neck of the woods, as again, I have never seen such a weird looking tree specimen! 🙂

    And noting the Ilford mark on the top of the image, and my recently reading that Ilford opened the ability to purchase this year’s batch of film (… ? … or something like that)… did you get your order in?

    Oh, and speaking of film, I recently saw this new app that came out, that I thought of you, when I saw it… and have thought of picking up myself… where you can use to do like a digital EXIF documenting for images shot with film.

      Ah, the trees, yes, I forgot about them already. Good of you to notice. Maybe I should start a photo project around those trees, go and look for them myself, see if they are common here. I actually don’t know, so it might be fun to investigate! 🙂 Take a photo of one of those trees in each town I visit, something like that.

      Yes, Ilford has their yearly ULF film run, for all kinds of non-standard sized film. I’ve ordered some “extra small” sheet film last year, planning to use it in a home-made pinhole camera… which I have still to build, so no need to order anything this year. But it is great that they are doing this!

      As for the app, well, that is something. But I rely on my Moleskine and Lamy for that (google that if you want). I’ll keep it in mind, though, in case I ever get a iPhone.

    Well, you can always get one of these homemade pinhole cameras, and say you made it… I won’t tell 😉

    I still have my version, of your Moleskine and Lamy, in my camera bag from, I really don’t know how long I have had it in there… but, haven’t used for as many years! That may not be true, I think I did jot down some notes when I did that film shooting stint with the F4 last Spring. Mostly though, I never got into the routine of using it when I was shooting, and would curse myself when I would go to check my shooting notes, and find I never wrote any info down for a particular photo, or series of photos… and frankly would probably do just the same with that app thing.
