Continued from Birdsong in Purple, Part I

Pentax Spotmatic, 35mm Film CameraPentax Spotmatic35mm Film Camera It's already the second half of August and my Buffalo & Western New York Landscapes photo gallery still has winter photos at the top! Wow! Let's change that right away with some color. And while moving from white to color, why not go with some crazy colors?

I think this makes for a great opportunity to wrap up the walk around Birdsong Park with a Pentax Spotmatic loaded with Lomochrome Purple special effects film. I am not big on filters and I am not big on special effects films, however, I am trying to keep my mind open and try different things out here and there. Who knows, maybe I'll find something to my taste!

I think it's a little more complicated with my statement above. I am very interested in alternative processes with black and white photography and some of them definitely form a departure from reality. You've seen me post a lot about Cyanotypes, a process that results in blue and white photographs. And I love those! I also tried my hand in lith printing and loved those tritone prints. Somehow, I am more open to crazy results with black and white photography whereas more conservative with color photography. So yes, Lomochrome Purple is definitely pushing the envelope for me! And if I ever get the Lomochrome Turqoise it will be no different. That being said, I love the light in the first photograph shared here, purple or not!

I have gone through a change of my likes and focus in Birdsong and the two photos above are from the surroundings of the creek flowing through the park. It is the creek and the wonderful old leaning trees lining its banks that have become so captivating to me recently. In contrast, the next two photos have no water featured, which is a bit strange given the fact the park is basically a swamp.

I love this park and it is really close to where I live. And I love making photographs close to home. There is always something new to capture and things are changing all the time. Sometimes, I find new subject matter, other times I go for a new take on something previously photographed. Now that I have selected the photos for this post I went back to the archives to see if I had posted more traditional versions of these. If you are curious and want to compare, feel free to scroll down once you finish reading.
