A roll of Acros 100 B&W film that was left in my camera after a trip to Montreal, Canada with some leftover frames that followed me to the beach.
In my experience, a good party never starts as one. It builds bit by bit until a hazy, yet unshakable memory has been created in its aftermath. This was no different, filled with smooth rap, clusters of strangers making introductions, and the sharp buzz of a tattoo gun. Art covered the wall's as the floor to ceiling windows facing Union Square reminded the partygoers of the world beyond our little bubble. A few of us came away with fresh ink, some of us escaped unscathed. A bedroom door opened, smoke rolled out with a handful of glassy-eyed individuals. The evening was going up and down at the same time. This is where things become questionable, we must now rely on our photo evidence. . .
This roll of Portra 800 sat in my camera for nearly a month. Rarely do I go that long without shooting film, it was a busy month for work, what can I say. Although there is a wide scope of lighting situations over that time. Sunset, daylight, backlit, overcast, you name it. Overall It was a pretty interesting month I have to say.
I recently inherited a camera from my grandfather after his passing. The camera is a Chinon CX II, made in Japan in 1976. Turns out it has some pretty amazing clarity for being 40 some years old, don't let the grain of the Ilford 3200 fool you. I hope you enjoy this test roll.
