lazy sunday walkabout. (with film!)

12 Mar 2014

. . .

It was a sunny but brisk Sunday, just the wee-est bits of spring poking around.  Olivia, Nick, and I wandered around the East Village, down along the edge of  NYU and Soho, and finally to the Lower East Side, with our cameras in tow.  Though I have shot with film since entering the digital world, it was for a client, and not for my own edification.  So, feeling like I needed to reconnect with analog, I brought my long-neglected Leica M6 with me.  Nick offered up a roll of expired Kodak Ektar 100 — by far my favorite film stock — and voila!, some gorgeous, wonderfully saturated shots.

Here was our afternoon, from start to finish.  Only one of these photos — the ‘Open House’ storefront shot — was edited in Lightroom for contrast, to counteract the late afternoon haze.  Otherwise, all of these photos are as-is.  A good reminder of why film is the best.

We ran into the fellows working at Carbone, getting out their fancy chairs in preparation for the dinner crowd.

An afternoon filled with sunspots and shade.

Gotta get back into my Backdrop Project now that it’s getting nice out again!
