A few minutes in the garden with a macro lens.
I got this old manual focus macro lens pretty cheap when the pandemic lockdowns hit last spring thinking it’d help pass the time. I ended up ‘essentially’ working through the past year though so it didn’t get the play i thought it would. I Stepped out the front door the other morning and saw the bumblebees on the coneflowers and took the opportunity.

I started out giving myself a project of picking my 12 favorite shots from 2017 because…. well its that time of year… Anyway, that quickly got out of hand, so I gave up on that and changed the self assignment to pick 12 shots from 2017 that I like but hadn’t posted. That morphed into putting together a cross section of shots from 2017 that represented some experiments, diverse content, cameras and medium (35mm and Medium Format film, and digital). 12 grew to 13… Cuz I wanted the Meek Mill pic in there… So here it is.
Cameras Used: Nikon D300 (Digital), Nikon F100, Nikon FE2, Zorki 4, Yashica D
Films Used: TriX, Kodak Portra 400, HP5, Fomopan100
