A foggy night on Melrose Avenue

I took a walk on this foggy night on Melrose Ave with my Contax G2 rangefinder film camera with a 45mm f/2 lens using my favorite film Fuji Acros 1600.

It’s a shame Acros 1600 is no longer in production.  It is a versatile film with a sweet grain.

Shooting with film is fun and forgiving especially with a simple manual focus SLR.  You’d have to wait to see what develops (no pun intended). But that’s okay because when seeing your prints for the first time, a new world opens up.

Suddenly those frames come alive with imagined possibilities which helps you strive to become a better photographer.

Soon your compositions turn into marvelous stories that can be shared for a very long time.
