Reading

This mural is in Philadelphia. It caught my eye in the low light, and as a result most of the shots have motion blur (this was in the borrowed N75, which has a very slow 28-90). Today I got four rolls’ worth of scanned negatives back from the drugstore (CVS again, but everyone here uses the same automated color-calibrated junk), and the three rolls of black and white are more unimpressive than ever. Contributing to the visual train wreck is the fact that one roll (the origin of Alone I) was pushed two stops and another was pushed one. The decrease in shadow detail drives the scanners crazy.

While the black and white rolls are extremely unimpressive, the color roll came out fairly well (most of the scans worked, although the pictures tend towards the uninteresting and poorly photographed). I normally don’t shoot film for color, but an expired roll at the local camera shop caught my eye.
