A recent trip to Almeria, just a few short weeks before restrictions on movement, found me, (in my sober moments at least), shooting monochrome Fomapan 400 on an old but much loved Pentax LX. The lenses in my bag were a 50/1.4, 28/2.8, and 135/2.5.
It was the first time I’d used 35 mm film for a few months, and the first time I’d used this actual camera since moving permanently to Spain some two years ago, so it was a great opportunity to simply relax, forget about what I might subsequently do with any of the photographs, and shoot whatever I liked the look of.
Some of the shots were taken at box speed, but others were pushed to 800, 1600 and even on a couple of occasions 3200, as I fully intended to develop using Rodinal stand development and knew from past experience that stand devved Fomapan gives lovely granular tones across the board.
So less natter, and a few shots I quite like….
