The 70s Look?

January 22, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

This was a fun Sunday afternoon in the city of Buffalo, NY. It was freezing but the sun came out and so had I and my camera. A few years back I bought a roll of experimental 35mm film that was supposed to produce muted colors shifted towards the blues reminiscent of the 70s, as well as some pretty strong grain. I thought I'd shoot it in summer when everything is colorful to take advantage of the film's strengths. But somehow, I never found the opportunity.

Using my links (Amazon) to do your shopping helps me share more photographs and write the stories behind them. And by all means, if you buy a photograph, that is the best reward and I appreciate it very much! You can get prints or whole framed and matted ready to hang solutions with just a few mouse clicks.

When the sun came out on a Sunday in the middle of a Western New York winter I decided it was about time. After all, the film actually expired back in November 2017 and we were into 2019 now. I loaded it into my Pentax Spotmatic and headed for the city with no clear target in mind. That proved to be another nice side benefit. I ended up taking a 4-mile walk from Shea's down Main Street to Canalside, over to the Erie Basin Marina and back to my starting point around the City Hall and Lafayette Square.

In the end, the film did exactly what it was meant to. I hope you'll enjoy this nostalgic detour from the world of digital perfection.
