Signs.

Allah azza wa jall has put all manner of signs here for us, if we only just look.

In Sura Al Baqarah, He tells us

إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَالْفُلْكِ الَّتِي تَجْرِي فِي الْبَحْرِ بِمَا يَنفَعُ النَّاسَ وَمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مِن مَّاءٍ فَأَحْيَا بِهِ الْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا وَبَثَّ فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ دَابَّةٍ وَتَصْرِيفِ الرِّيَاحِ وَالسَّحَابِ الْمُسَخَّرِ بَيْنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ

Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people, and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and dispersing therein every [kind of] moving creature, and [His] directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and the earth are signs for a people who use reason.

Ya Allah, help me to remember You, and give thanks to You, and worship you to the best of my ability.


I shot my last roll of Silberra Pan and Ultima side by side in the Lomo LC-A and Cosina CX-2. My (new to me) CX-2 has a meter issue: it works fine when the meter is wide open (ISO 400), but overexposes wildly (but still varies the shutter speed) at anything else. So compare/contrast is largely impossible. Still. Here you go. Silberra Ultima 200 on the left; Silberra Pan 200 on the right, both souped in Ilfotec HC, 1:119, for 1 hour, with 4 inversions at the beginning, 4 inversions at 30 minutes.

I’ll be doing this all week… so enjoy.
