My relationship to photography and being a photographer is changing a lot. It may represent a maturity in my vision and an understanding of the purpose of photography within the larger context of my life. Now I feel like I've given myself the reins back and photography is sitting behind me, leaving a trail of breadcrumbs of life and art.
I've been shooting a lot (relatively) of colour film lately to further experiment moving to the medium away from digital colour photography. Unfortunately, I still feel a serious lack of control over the results, unlike with my black and white film, but I'm finding a connection back to the digital Leica and a way of bridging the gap in creative process and outcomes. Below are some different rolls of Kodak Portra 160 and 400 (edited in Lightroom).
First roll back from the Yashica 124G. The lens is yellowish and hazy unfortunately.
Dreamy West End.
Square format portraits are fun.
Simon took my portrait on the Yashica.
Love this, though I’m finding the haze distracting.
My focus is way off, or the taking lens is off.
River wanderings with Lauren.

Bokeh makes me forget to check my background.

Lovely camera to shoot, pity about the quality.

Things to do while camping. Stare at fire, read, eat, swim.
Things for dog to do: lie, eat, swim.

Cane and corn and farm stuff.
Sad to leave.
