While You’re Waiting or Not Waiting

A couple of weeks ago I visited an historical site and made some photos using a Zeiss Ikon ZM without using a tripod. I liked some of the photos I got back but they are a bit soft. I’m not sure if this is because of the film (Ilford XP2 Super 400), my technique (though it doesn’t look like camera shake), or the scans. So I went back several days ago and tried to make the same photos using ISO50 black and white film in the Contax 645. I think I will wait until I get that film back before deciding whether or not to share on this website. I hope they are better than the 35mm photos but who knows? Perhaps the light wasn’t as interesting, etc.

In the meantime, here’s a cat.

  1. Interesting shot of tabby highlighted by light coming from either a window or skylight resting on that very comfy human bed or special cat bed. What I like is that the subject is surrounded by all that black shadow envelope. Nice work!

    By-the-way, I’ve got a ginger colored tabby who also enjoys snoozing on my bed during the day all curled up.

    1. Thank you for the comment. Kitty-Cat spends all day lying in sunlight and all evening curled up in my wife’s lap. At night he sleeps on the bed again, taking up my leg room. But he’s a cutie . . .
