Happy little fella

Taken with my Minolta Dynax 7 with Minolta 50mm f1.8 on Kodak HD200 expired 2005, developed at Camera House Fremantle and Scanned at home on my Epson 4990.

 

So we had to go into Fremantle on Saturday morning to go take my boy Link to see one of his grandmothers who hadn’t seen him in a while. Since we were heading that way, and I knew Camera House Fremantle would be open and still did in house development with pretty quick turn around, I took the remaining 5 rolls of c41 I had left after my not so successful dev with the latest cheap kit I tried. I have had plenty of success in the past with the Unicolor c41 kits, bu these Cine-Mech kits I tried were rendering physically dark negs which were not scanning well.

Taken on Minolta a7/dynax 7 using Minolta 50mm f1.4 on Kodak hd400 expired 2005. Home developed in Cine-Mech C41 kit and scanned on Epson 4990.

Still going through the 5 rolls I dev’d last Friday and trying to get all the scanning done. Just when I think I’m ready to give up shooting 35mm c41 and sell all my lovely film stocks to focus on larger formats and b&w, I produce some scan or portrait that just makes me start to fall in love with it all over again.

I dev’d this roll in rodinal, using the stand dev method and scanned the negative on my Epson 4990.

Was out to dinner at the pub with the family, had brought this spidey toy along for the little fella. Had some fun with it while waiting for our meals. 🙂

Placed the little fella up on top of the car after dinner at the pub. I took two shots, however this is my favorite.I have plenty of him smiling but this shows his attitude.

Introducing Link Atticus Perera

So in the wee hours of the morning on September the 1st 2016 at 1:09am the love of my life gave me the greatest present ever. She brought my first born son Link Atticus Perera into the world. It has been 11 days since so I thought it was about time to share some images from this personally monumental event with you all. I do hope you enjoy. 🙂
