We missed the 24th, so I'm back-filling, with another image from Prince Edward Island. Shot on Kodak Gold with a Minolta 7000i, scanned on an Epson V370 Photo (I wish they didn't have both Photo and non-Photo versions of the 370), and converted to a toned B&W version using Topaz BW Effects 2.
Nice one, Dave. I've always been intrigued by Prince Edward Island...
Here's one for the 26th. Mamiya 645 1000s : 35mm Mamiya Sekor f/3.5 : Ilford HP5 Plus : PMK Pyro
Thanks, Rick! My wife prefers the color version, but I think the color is distracting.
I decided to visit PEI because my paternal grandfather was born there. We've pretty much established that the migration went Scotland to Ireland to PEI to Boston, but the details are lost to history due to poor record keeping and fires. That's the source of my interest. What got you interested?
And what was tethered with that interesting hitch?
Dave, I became interested when I read " Anne of Green Gables" at about the age of thirteen, Lucy Maud Montgomery's famous novel which drew inspiration from the island. Being island dwellers in New Zealand, we share many marine features and our southern islands have a similar climate, we have a similar history of colonisation and the same parliamentary system of government, with Queen Elizabeth as the constitutional monarch. I think I could slip into life on Prince Edward Island without too much difficulty...
The very informal knot merely secured a rope that divided off a section of cobblestones under repair.
I'll have to keep my eyes open for any shots I may have gotten of the Green Gables cottage. I recall not having much time to photograph it due to the light fading, but I may have gotten one or two shots.
Here's another "filler" to make up for the 27th.
Here's one for the 28th. Mamiya 645 1000s : Mamiya Sekor 55-105mm f/4.5 : Bergger Pancro 400 : PMK Pyro
I see a prancing horse. Is that a Ferrari tractor? I don't know if I've ever seen one, but I know that was their primary business in the beginning.
I also noticed a signature. I don't think I've seen that, before, either.
And we thought Devo were strange.
Hello everyone. Dave, you must visit the Puget Sound Music Scene. . . these folk are just warming up ! Research the origin of Grunge ! Aloha, Bill
