Kodak Tri-X 400 | 0015

I noticed that the sharpest of my photos are the ones shot on film! Or maybe they look too sharp because I initially never had high expectations for film quality so when they turned out sharp, I immediately saw them as the sharpest! I still don’t know. What I do know though is I definitely prefer film, sharp or not!



When I checked the weekly photography challenge I was listening to Tim Bowness’ Where You’re Always Been and I thought it could be great to accompany my photo with a verse from the song even though the connection might not be very obvious.

Everything around you 
Seems unreal and seems so vast 
The playthings of the present 
Fading snapshots from the past 
You’ll still be here tomorrow
In the places in between
In love with your own sorrow
Where you’ve always been

I have many photos (some of which I have already posted here before) that apply to this week’s challenge more than this one but I wanted to share my photos shot on film for now so there you go.


K-TX 400-0001

Remember when I said developing my negatives in France would take a while? Well, scratch that! I got them. Something very lucky happened which I won’t bother go through here but what’s important is that I can finally see what my first couple of rolls of TX film look like. ^^

My expectations weren’t high since I know I was simply testing myself with this whole thing but I expected higher quality in terms of scanning at least. I also think the camera I’m using isn’t clean enough. On my front, I could use better focus on focus! Anyways, here’s my first pick, a mosque door at the center of my town. I wanted a better angle but I only have a 50mm prime lens with very limted space so that’s pretty much the only way I could have framed the whole door.

I took a walk looking for ineresting shadows (for WPC) even though I knew I wouldn’t find any; it was too cloudy. Anyways, I took some nice pictures regardless.
