Walking up and down Lowell’s historic Dutton Street was almost photographic sensory overload. There truly was a lot to see. And, this despite being a damp, quiet day. There were torrential downpours before, and after, I managed to fire off two magazines of film. Even managed to capture some nice light along the way.
On this day, I was not really worried so much about overexposing the frames. I had the Gossen Luna Pro F around my neck, and ISO50 film, on a day where the sun was not exactly blazing. Still, there were indeed some tricky scenes to meter. Not sure if I really nailed this one, but I like how it came out. A Hasselblad out on the streets? It can be done.
Ilford Pan F Plus, to my eyes, is magical. I really enjoyed shooting with this film, and knowing that the usually fear and hesitancy that can come with shooting with a higher speed film on a day such as this really was not an issue. I did have a roll of Tri-X in the bag, just in case. But, for a different look, it really is a blast to mix things up.
