"Mr Utterson beheld a marvelous number of degrees and hues of twilight; for here it would be dark like the back-end of evening; and there would be a glow of rich, lurid brown, like the light of some strange conflagration."
R.L. Stevenson - Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Summer time seems to present the required patience and time to draw me back to using a film camera and the generosity of this dear friend enabled me to shoot my first roll of a professional grade film. After exposing the final few frames in a street off Broadway I dropped them in and picked up my photos this morning. Like these three, many of the pictures show the evidence of light leaks and the unpredictability encountered by an amateur using film, but the warm tones and the precision are far greater than I seem to get on digital no matter how hard I try.

I loaded another roll today, and I'm giving film another whirl.
(In between some posts from New York, I'll try to share a few more.)
