The morning’s lovely soft light was the effect of very polluted and dusty spring air. Not a day for including the sky in landscape photos.
In autumn some older people buy chillies from farmers and then lay them out to dry wherever they can. Parking lots, sidewalks, anywhere there is a flat space and an inconvenience to passersby.
I think I posted a photo similar to this one on my old blog, but this one has nice light and a more interesting composition.
I don’t know why this block would be embedded in the concrete wall that surrounds someone’s house. Was it once a kind of peep hole to see what’s going on outside the wall? A mistake? An art project?
Sometimes I take the forty minute route to work because I get to walk past lots of trees and fields.

This chair is at the edge of a field, so maybe a farmer uses it to take a rest now and then. I can’t explain the concrete tiles piled up next to it.
Last month I got some Foma 400 back from the lab. There weren’t many usable photos on the rolls. Partly because of my poor skills and partly because the film quality can be dodgy at times. The edges are lighter than the rest of the frame or there are slight spots here and there. It’s not the lab and it’s not the camera because other films turn out fine. Here are a few of the photos worth posting here.
This scene is on the way to my university, on the short-cut over the hill. I’d like to make this photo again with my X-T3, perhaps in square format.
No, I didn’t buy a new panorama camera and turn it on its side. This is obviously heavily cropped because there was nothing of interest to the left and right of this plant.
Some businesses will buy a shipping container and have windows installed so they can use them as offices. This one was painted yellow (not so obvious here 🙂 ), though most places just leave them depressingly grey.
I liked the strong shadows here so I made a photo. LPG is how many homes get their cooking fuel. The tanks are usually kept out behind the house. Many have rust spots. They are delivered by madmen in pickup trucks.
I wish I had used Tri-X instead of Foma, but I was trying to find ways to cut down on film costs. A mistake . . . .
