Despite the Indian Summer, fall is definitely here. Here’s a quick throwback to this past summer to fight the upcoming blues.
I shot this field of sunflowers not far from Carcassonne in the South of France. The day’s goal was the French side of the Pyrenees and, using the Scenic app, I’d plotted a curvy route off the beaten track.
I’ve been keeping an eye on the Lab-Box project for almost a year now. What started as a Kickstarter is now available in pre-order until october 31st (with shipping estimated for february).
Lab-Box is a solution for those who want to get into developing their own black and white 35mm and 120mm film. It’s an all-in-one solution that eliminates the need for a darkroom or -bag for loading and developing film. You just put your film in the appropriate attachment according to size, attach the cartridge to the main unit and crank the film into the main chamber, kind of like you would when loading the camera.
A lot of things happened in the past 6 months. Moving to Walem was one of them. The green belt around the old military fort was a lifesaver when I needed some fresh air, peace and quiet and time to think. At one point, walking up and down the path became a daily routine.
I snapped this shot with one of my favourite cameras, the Widelux F6B Panoramic camera that I got myself for my 30th birthday. I love how it’s intricate (and delicate) mechanics created the possibility to make cinematic widescreen pictures on 35mm.
