I finally finished a roll of black and white film that has been in a camera I carry around from time to time; my Lomo LC-A+. This picture instantly reminded me of the day I spent a late afternoon at Gasworks Park. The weather was calm and so I wandered down to the water's edge, where I captured this photo. I really do love little time capsules like this, found on an old roll of film.

Well, this should inspire me to get out my wonderful 35mm camera which I've neglected for years to finish the roll that's in it. Surprise!! But it's hard to go back after digital, even tho the lenses are far superior. Gotta think about this now. I really like the background of this photo.

The reveal was great on this photo as I scrolled down. First the title, then the line of city scape, then the row of geese. Excellent.

I still have my Nikon F and its lenses, and drag it out from time to time. I like this photo very much; composition between line of buildings and geese.

This takes me back to my film days. This is a very professional image. Tells a story, rule of thirds, beautiful structured light and wonderful perspective. It's good to see a straight forward film image in these days of digital. I always say it's the photographer not the camera that thinks the image.

Thank you everyone! I adore shooting film, which is strange since I got into photography long after the digital revolution. Something about taking your time and getting the shot right the first time really makes it worthwhile. That and having to wait until you get the film developed to see what you actually got. :)
