“Memory takes a lot of poetic license. It omits some details; others are exaggerated, according to the emotional value of the articles it touches, for memory is seated predominantly in the heart. The interior is therefore rather dim and poetic.” ~Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie, Scene One, 1945
Fall, aside from being a special time to make photographs, is a near spiritual time of the year for me here in the U.P. It brings back a memories and plants seeds for new ones.
My Rolleiflex 3.5T is on the way back from a complete CLA and shutter service from Paul Ebel in Menominee, WI. Paul is one of the few technicians in the USA who are capable of stellar work with these fine cameras. Then I may use one Rollei for color and the other for black and white.
I am going to try Fomapan 100 in the Holga this weekend, weather permitting, to see if one more stop of exposure (compared to my standard ASA 50 Ilford Pan F) can make a difference in the low light I prefer to shoot in. A very questionable weekend as far as weather goes. It is in the 40’s and very windy and rainy today, with more of the same on Saturday, and a possibility of partial cloudiness on Sunday (my preferred light). The weather in the Western U.P. is like someone with a severe mood disorder-unpredictable.
