Clearing, looking east in the Darling scarp forest… More on XP2

Clearing looking east about mid day...Leica M2 ƒ/8  Summicron 40mm Ilford XP2 film.

To some extent I am re learning how to use film. As I mentioned in a previous post I haven’t used Ilford XP2 400 film much before. Its a bit inconvenient because I have to take it into Perth to process, this was dropped of 2 weeks ago and not picked up until yesterday there just has been no time or other reason to drive into town. Its a really great film, lovely tonal range nice dense blacks and the finest of fine grains this could almost be digital… I expect this kind of performance from a medium format film but this is 35mm. I’m tempted to buy some XP2 in bulk there seems to be some really good deals on offer at the moment!

Half tree track …

Half tree track the long process of an old tree returning to the earth ...Yashica Mat f8 Fuji Neopan 100 exposed as 400 Stand developed in Rodinal

This is an another image of  the ever changing life of a tree in the forest. This remaining spike of tree in the foreground died likely fifty years ago. In the twenty years that I have been photographing this area I have watched it degrade from a hollow tree to two spikes and now to the last single spike of timber and a buttress. Sad but in the general area there are quite a few saplings that are the direct decedents of this once huge tree.
