I have been trying to come up with a blog theme since the last time, but I have not yet. I’ve been busy with some GIS work.
Yesterday, I looked out the window about noon and there was a tornado of bees. It was a forming swarm. A little while later I found it in coalescing in a nearby shore pine. My friend Randy had an empty Warre hive ready, and with some ladders, and a bucket, the two us captured the swarm and gave them a nice home. It is likely from the Warre hive started last year, but it is difficult to tell yet. The weather turned sopping wet since then. I do like being a beekeeper, and after a long haul, with one hive surviving two winters, and another one, we will have to learn about honey harvesting from these fixed-frame hives. Most first-time beekeepers have worse luck overwintering; I'm pretty sure it’s the alternate design of the hive that gives them a fighting chance.
I got a film scanner but I don’t really love it. It is working for 35mm, and that has been great. I want to put up some of the film scans that have come forward, but I don’t really want to do all of the work tonight to explain their chronology. Fair enough? I also have some nice stuff from an evening shoot that will make more sense in a separate entry. So, besides the Leica blog last time, it has been quite a while since an all film blog. So enjoy!
Exposure latitude with transparency film is tough. I still like the funkiness.
I couldn’t get very good results from my own scans of color roll of Ektar 100 the light-leaky Leica. Here is one from the lab:
My Fuji Instax 210 has broken! This is the shot before last. I tried some stuff to get the scan to look nice. Time for a new instant film camera
