Because of our vacation, I forgot about this roll. I got distracted by testing my new Rollei Giro 105 and Minolta MD Zoom 35-70mm f/3.5 lens. And then there was the vacation itself. I finished 11 rolls of film while away and have been slowly getting them developed and edited.
Both my Hi-Matic and the HP5 Plus have given me great results. I haven’t used the HP5 with the Hi-Matic before and, in fact, don’t often shoot black and white with the Hi-Matic.
Not surprisingly, I was pleased with the results.
I went out on 2 occasions with this combination. Early in April, Holly and I took a walk to University City where I shot 13 photos.
One weekend later in April, we took a walk to the Delaware River. I took 10 photos on the way there. Coincidentally, my 2 favorite photos from that part of our walk were images taken through a fence: the Starr Garden photo and the Phila Int’l Airport photo.
Along the waterfront, I took another 9 photos.
I was able to finish the roll on our way back home.
We enjoyed our vacation so much that returning to normal has been quite an adjustment. It was nice revisiting these photos as a reminder of 2 really nice walks we took back in April. As usual, neither the Hi-Matic 11 nor the Ilford HP5 Plus disappointed.
