MacroChrome

It’s in some way fitting to share some nice, peaceful pictures for Armistice Day, even if I had no idea that this particular weekly roll would appear on this particular day. If you’re free at 11:11 on 11/11, take a minute of silence to remember all those who die in war and take another minute to ponder the beauty of peace, and then come back and check out these pictures.

I shot most of the roll—and everything shared here—with the PK-13 extension tube on the Micro Nikkor 55mm f/2.8. It’s not the sharpest combo ever or the easiest to focus, but it worked great for this week. Film for this week is the Film Photography Project’s RetroCrome 320. The oranges and reds are luscious, and while it has a tendency toward cupping during drying, it scans fairly easily after cutting and sleeving and spending a night pressed between books. The grain and color are both pleasant, and I’m very glad to have a couple of rolls left.

Overall, I’d give the FPP’s RetroChrome 320 a 3.9.
