I lugged my Rolleicord all the way to Japan, and Hong Kong this last few weeks. That’s a long way to carry a big old camera (alongside all the regular Fuji kit) just to take a few frames. It was worth it though; it’s simply lovely to use such a great piece of kit and feels very special doing so when far away from home.
I’ve just had two films processed in Hong Kong (at the usual dot-well photo) – both Kodak Portra 400. I’ve never had such a variety of shots within 24 frames and here are what I consider to be the best of them. I was absolutely amazed that the long exposure of the Japanese waterfall came out sharp and well exposed. I mounted the Rollei on a Gorillapod in the pouring rain, balanced on a slippery bridge when holding an umbrella, thinking I’d completely cocked up the long exposure control. I seem to have done something right, albeit by accident!
Needless to say, all are completely unedited on the computer (as I prefer with film shots).
