B&W digital offers the photographer all the control in the world, but to my eye it doesn’t quite meet the beauty of B&W film.
My F100 almost ate this roll of film; it would not rewind and I had to pop open the back in a dark room under cover and pull the film out, and it suffered creasing and damage anyway. It’s a pity, because I don’t know when I’ll have time to go back and recreate this image of University Laboratory High School’s dedication stone.
I have not been idle during our unusually long and harsh winter, but I seem to have been unmotivated to post. Well, spring is finally here, and yesterday I found these in full glory right by the backyard gate:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
— William Wordsworth
