There was a photo here, but I missed it. That constant battle with street photography. I’ve talked about it before, so I won’t go into it at length. I’d just be repeating myself. Here’s the gist – I love scenes of daily life, but I also don’t want to be intrusive. One nice thing about film is that it lends itself to a softer focus, making it easier to obscure people’s identities. But to have gotten a decent photo here would have meant posting up and going for it. I most likely would have ruined this person’s quiet moment, and the dog would have had to re-read that page.
If you like street photography, check out Andre D. Wagner’s photos. He shoots film and then develops and prints the photos in his darkroom. I loved seeing boxes and boxes of contact sheets in one of his photos. I would find that level of organization and efficiency elusive. Goals.
If you’re curious about the level of work required, here’s an Ilford video on printing contact sheets.
