Rock Church and Live Oak

The classic view of the Old Rock Church.

Live oak for framing. Puffy clouds. Empty field. Yep, all the basics.

I was working in B+W with Efke 25 and had it processed in dr5 as a positive.

The came out fantastic. Did duplicate shots and had one set done in dr5 and the other done as a negative.

The negatives are nice but the positives are WOW!

I'll be doing a lot more dr5 with black and white.

The Rock Church

Another church in the countryside, the Old Rock Church.

One of my favorite places to photograph. In the archives of this blog you can probably find four or five other images of it. As you can see, I never really tire of photographing this building.

Can you blame me?

I was working in b+w and with Efke 25 film. To learn the film I was making two of every image and getting half processed as a traditional negative and half done as a positive with the dr5 process.

The negatives turned out great! Still waiting on the positives to come back from mail order. Not sure if my longer term goal in b+w will be to go all positives or negatives. Either way it has given me renewed interest in film since my color work was limited to the edge of the day and b+w allows me to do film more throughout the day.

Old Church

An old church southwest of Fort Worth.

Texas has a great many old churches to photograph and this is one we happened upon one day on a drive.

It's small and not famous, but it was one I liked and return to revisit. I made the image in B+W and I am still waiting for processing-ok I am sending them off this week.
