Once again, I find myself apologising for last nights rushed post. I don’t like doing that. I’m determined not to break the sequence.
I have to admit, I only decided to do this, as I went to write this. Then, having decided on a “Photo of the week” I don’t think I will do this every week. It seems to be a bit of a cop out to me. Like I can’t think of anything original to write about a much loved hobby that I have participated in for the better part of 40 years.
I like this picture because of the detail and the colour, the quality of light on the water, the sharpness. It’s one of those pictures where I won’t look at it in black and white.
In my early days, I did a lot of B&W, partly because it was cheaper, and partly because I could process the film myself. I remember using the Patterson tanks and the chemicals, and what a nightmare it was transferring the film from the can to the roll. More than once I took the can out of the bag to find that I hadn’t put the lid on correctly. I have to say, not an easy thing to do, putting the lid on wrong. The tanks were very good for that. I will happily confess that I so much prefer the ease of digital. Being able to look at my pictures on any of my devices as soon as I get home.
