I ran a roll of expired Fuji Superia Reala 100 film through my Zeiss Ikon rangefinder. I shot using both my Zeiss Biogon 35/2 and the Leica Elmar-M 50/2.8. In a word, film still has a lot of life left in it.
I was waiting for the signal to turn green and this old gentleman crossed the road paying no attention to the midday sun.
One of my favorite coffee bar in Qatar, located right within the Nissan showroom on Salwa road. They make some great espresso. If you are in the market to pickup the retro-chic ‘Francis Francis’ espresso machine, they have one!
I found this bush right next to the road. I have done another version of the same bush using my Fuji X-E1.
Chained wheelbarrows, Doha, May 2013
This is my favorite so far of all my film shots. The smooth transition of the tones makes me coming back to this image.
There are a few things I understood.
1. I need to change the lab I use to process my films. Too many artifacts in the film, and very inconsistent.
2. I need a better scanner. The scans are not sharp enough. They look so much better on the negatives!!
The last image convinces me that film still reigns supreme (at least over the affordable digital kind).
