Testing some Ilford Delta 3200


My pancake lens on my Voigtlander isn't the fastest at f/2.5 so in order to shoot in low light I have to use a really fast film like Ilford Delta 3200. I hadn't had much experience with the film so I decided to take it out for a test roll and I was very happy with the results. It has pretty heavy grain as you can see in the pictures but I like the effect it has on the pictures. Film just breathes so much life into photos. These were taken in a Barns and Noble... a place that's never boring even if you don't read much. And you can that not much reading was to be had by my friends and I. Since I was adjusting to this new film for me, not too many shots turned out so here are the best ones of my friends playing on cat keyboards and such.

Old Town Glendale


My family's California plans fell through when my sister got the stomach flu, so my dad, brother and I decided to drive about 20 minutes down to Old Town Glendale, Arizona. You have to drive through a pretty bad neighborhood but then all of a sudden you reach this beautiful neighborhood full of old houses and cool antique stores.

On the way back home I still had some film left over, and I wanted to be able to see my pictures as soon as possible so I had to finish the roll! And this old building really caught my eye so instinctively I had to stop. It turns out this factory first opened in the early 1900's and was a beet sugar factory and even made Orange Crush for a while. Pretty cool. I couldn't go in unfortunately, due to the fence, barb wire, two sets of razor wire and the possible security guard in the security office with the door cracked. It was a very interesting place though. Tons of old cars including an old hot rod hurst that I couldn't get close enough too get a good picture of. But overall it was well worth the stop.
