Roll No. 281 - Reclaimed Wood
It was early when I woke up and I had a roll of film to finish. It was dreary and overcast but that didn't stop me from heading out.
On the way from my apartment to the car, I must have changed my mind three or four times before settling on my desired location. I headed out on Highway No. 1 and hit the road bringing my trusty go-to camera, the Canon Elan II.
Since I only wanted to finish off the roll already in progress, I only brought the one camera with me. I'm usually toting around multiple cameras so it was relaxing only having one body.
This location I have shot before. I had been here shooting digitally (as shown above) and again with a roll of Kodak T Max 400 with the Hasselblad 500CM. The previous outings had been during sunset, which were very colourful and dramatic. This time around I wasn't as lucky but it wasn't all too bad either. The overcast sky, while completely boring and lifeless, provided soft light and let the fall colours shine through.
It's a great location and I like to shoot there because it has a lot to offer. Bonus points for being very accessible since it's not far from home.
Keeping it simple, I only shot through two lenses: the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 and the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 ART. The Tokina, technically an ultra-wide angle lens designed for crop-sensor DSLRs but I use it on my full-frame anyway, provided the wide shots at 16mm. The Sigma is the money maker, producing the up-close and personal detailed shots.
All photographs were taken with Canon Elan II camera and AGFA Vista Plus 200 color negative film, which was home-developed and scanned with the Pakon F135 Plus scanner.
