| The beautiful art of film photography |
Just north of the island where we live, is a beautiful little island called Örskär located. The island has only a couple of summer houses, noone lives there the whole year around. There is also a hostel, a very nice season restaurant and of course, the lighthouse. One evening we took the tour boat to Örskär, ate a excellent Lighthouse Keeper dinner on the restaurant, and ended the evening looking when the sun set directly in the sea.
We are so lucky living like this, and we are definitely going back to Örskär soon.
My pinhole contribution for WPPD 2017 over on Lenslessness 🙂
Inspired by some of for me new groups on Flickr, and what appears to be “in vogue” right now, I found for next to nothing on Ebay this old Russian lens with M42 mount. Adapters which allows you to connect the lens to your desired camera is also available for a song on Ebay. Incomparable is the bokeh that can be achieved! But because in Sweden we have not yet spring and there is still no fresh spring green, I chose to photograph with black and white film, making the images more abstract than they would have been with color film.
I look forward to future adventures with this lens (and even a Zenit E that I also bought almost shamefully inexpensive at the same time) and some spring sunshine and rich greenery.
Until then, enjoy 🙂
