On a whim, I bought 5 rolls of Tri-X pan film the other day. I used to live and breathe Tri-X when I worked for a Los Angeles daily some 20 years ago. I’d been a bit vexed by the cumbersome viewfinder that came with the Leica 16-21mm zoom that arrived two Christmases ago.
Realizing that the viewfinder was calibrated for the film, not the digital, Leicas, I pulled down my old M4 body (It may have been on the shelf for ten years), performed the once-familiar ritual of loading the camera (it’s all but impossibly hard), screwed it up first time around, then reloaded, this time correctly.
So I hauled the camera around Saturday morning snapping random scenes,later dropping the film at Keeble and Shuchat for processing. One shot, a study of the oak next to our driveway is above, other pix are on Picasaweb. Remember grain?
