Another image from the roll of FP4+ shot with the Hasselblad and the 50mm/F4 Distagon lens in Taylor Creek Park.
I have been in a funk photographically for a few days. Too busy to do much in the way of photography and not all that happy with the images I was taking. I did go out yesterday morning to Taylor Creek Park and finished off a roll languishing in a film back for my Hasselblad and got a few I liked.

Ilford Fp4 Plus film, developed in Rodinal
I like the combination of Ilford HP5 Plus and Microdol-X Developer (I am using vintage packets of the latter; once it’s gone it’s gone so I will need to switch to the equivalent from other suppliers). It was a very dull day light-wise in the Beaches recently when I shot this but film/developer combination managed to pick out enough contrast.
On the way to Muskoka recently my friend Bill and I stopped by the side of the road to photograph this scene. I was a challenge to work around a sagging power line in the middle of the frame. I shot this with my Hasseblad (square format), and in post decided to crop it as shown, and I quite like the way it turned out in the end.
