Black, White, and Processing

Posted 2009.09.05 19.03 in Hobbies, Photography by Stephanie

So, when was the last time you developed your own film? I haven’t done it in at least a decade, but today I picked up some Tri-X 400 Pro film, some chemicals, and took a walk around the neighborhood. It didn’t take too long to shoot a roll of 36 frames through my trusty Minolta X370. I’ve got a ‘new’ old lens on there, a Rokkor 45mm f/2 that I bought through eeeebay.

Processing was pretty simple and didn’t take long, and I can’t tell you just how rewarding and exciting it is to open up that tank and see the images on the film. It’s almost like magic, really.

Anyhow, below are some of the shots from today. They’re nothing terribly special, just shots that caught my eye between my walk and getting home.

Misha Musashi

Misha Kitten

 

 

This is Misha Musashi! She came into my life in September 2000, but didn’t become my room-mate till October 2000.

 

 

 

Misha kitten

While on vacation in Memphis Tennessee, visiting my friend Athena, we found this little stray on the streets. Cold, lonely and hungry, she took to cosy apartment life immediately, and adopted me right away. Before I could bring her home to Canada though, she had to get her shots and travel papers.

Athena made these arrangements, but it took some time, so I couldn’t bring Misha home right away; I had to make another trip back to get her. Ok, most folks think I’m crazy to drive 2000 miles for a cat, but then most folks haven’t met Misha.

 

 

Misha Cat

Now she lives with me in a 140+ year old house in downtown Brampton. Since Misha was an only-cat for two years or so, she isn’t really keen on having other kitties around, but as long as they stay out of her way she’ll tolerate them.

 

 

 


Some Haikus About Misha

A dash, streak of black,
The lunge, claws in my back; it’s
Misha Musashi!
Harsh night, busy street
Stray kitten found, needs to eat
Moved into my heart.
