Dairy Farm

Dairy Farm

There is an old dairy farm just down the road from where I live. I had a roll of HP5 with me and a "new" film camera to test one afternoon as I passed this place at sunset. Here are some of the frames from that roll. While I love my 4x5 large format camera, I would only have been able to take 1 or 2 of these shots had I been shooting with it. Sometimes 35mm is easier because I can make more photos in a shorter window of time. For a run-and-gun session Im happy with a couple of these.

I found myself in an area I love to photograph with a little time, a couple rolls of film, and a camera in my bag. I burned a roll of Ilford HP5 which I later developed in New 55's R5 Monobath. I love that stuff (even if it is the most toxic stuff I've ever used in the darkroom).  There are a couple of print-worthy shots from the day which I'll eventually share, but here is the stuff that didn't quite make the cut.
