I brought film to my local lab this morning because Saturday is usually the slow day there. Except today, of course. I made some prints and then asked him to scan five frames of film. I thought he wouldn’t have time but he snuck me in and I got high quality scans done. And at a much better price than the Seoul labs.
All the film is Provia 100F. I made some basic adjustments in Lightroom.
I cross a bridge on the way to work every morning and made this photo using my Zeiss Ikon rangefinder. It’s not art but the stream and reeds are a nice break from all the ugly grey concrete in the city.
I’ve posted a photo like this before but I think it was made with a digital camera. This photo (and all following photos) was made with my Contax 645. This is a ferry pulled up for the winter at the wetland park.
Portrait of the Artist as an Idiot. Wetland park again.
This is a detail from a statue of a scholar the tomb of King Myeongju of Gangneung.
This is my favourite photo from my scans today. The stairs lead up to the king’s tomb but I liked looking down the hill at the turtle stele. To me it looks like the turtle is heading off to the next world.
I’m very happy with my scans today. I rather like choosing the best photos from slides and then scanning those. It saves me a bit of money (no roll scans necessary) and the photo lab can do my scans in just a few minutes.
