weekend exploring

Film. Kodak Portra 400.

A bit of exploring last weekend.

I’m finding that I’m not a big fan of the Portra.  I like the old Portra 400nc.  By far, my favorite film is Kodak Ektar.

Working on a few projects that I hope to share soon.

Is it really the last weekend in October?

    Oh don’t say you don’t like Porta 400…. I just fell in love with it :)
    Mind you, I haven’t tried Ektar, perhaps I should!

    Love these photos. They make me miss Ontario!ReplyCancel

    Ahh…. exploring is my favorite thing to do.So many treasures to be found. Took a 2 hour photo walk this past weekend; filled the camera with great things! :-) Love the little stream here. Good stuff!ReplyCancel

    I bought some film but hadn’t had the chance to shoot them yet.. It’s crazy how October flew by.ReplyCancel

    That bench is in a perfect spot between the two trees.

    I think I may do some exploring this weekend too. I feel like going for a drive/photowalk and looking for something pretty to photograph.ReplyCancel

    These are so pretty but I must admit I was disappointed by the new portra too!ReplyCancel

    I’m late here, but wanted to say that I’m not a fan of the Portra 400, either. Ektar 100 is my favorite now; Portra 400nc used to be my favorite. Now if I want a softer look, I cross over brands and buy some Fuji 400H. I see that you’re still posting many photos from 400nc. Did you stock up earlier or is there a place you buy it online? I regret not stocking up last year.

    By the way, I adore your photos.ReplyCancel
