Christmas Lights

Took the Minolta XG-7, 50mm f/1.4 Rokkor, and a roll of TMax 400 into downtown Worcester, MA recently, to capture some Christmas lights. No tripod, handheld, with some rather slow shutter speeds, it was indeed at times a challenge to keep camera blur/motion shake at bay. But this was a lot of fun, and a rather warm late fall/early winter evening. And, no snow in Central Massachusetts since the freak snowstorm captured in this blog for October.

These were home developed with Kodak HC-110, utilizing my usual 49:1 dilution. This has indeed been a joyful year for film photography, one I will not soon forget. I am grateful for my family, my health, and the new friends I have made through this wonderful passion.

Get out there and photograph Christmas, before it comes and goes for another year. Merry Christmas, film photographers. And, digital photographers.
