I was excited to use this film for the first time whilst Kim & I were on holidays in Queensland.
I used the majority of the roll at the Markets in Redcliffe. I love to take photos at markets; it is a cosmopolitan atmosphere of people from everywhere wandering around browsing the stalls, excited kids, bright colours, music, the smells of exotic food cooking, dogs enjoying a day out; it is a street photographers dream!
The rest of the roll I shot whilst on a photo walk along the Hunter Street Mall and Newcastle Beach during a lunch break.
This film surprised me because I had expected a grainier finish to it but, in fact, it has a soft grain finish and has given me some lovely sharp images. Looking at the photos of the Markets, it has shown a very nice tonal range of the colours into monochrome. It was also perfect for the Hunter St Mall shots on a cold and gloomy winters day.
Now that I know just how good it is, I might make it a regular along with the Fuji Acros 100 that I use regularly. I have a roll of Fuji Acros 100 in the Emi K 35mm viewfinder SLR (see my last post). That film is almost finished and I will post its' outcome on here shortly.
I have also been working on a family project too; stay tuned for more on that!

|Although this would have looked very impressive in colour, I love the tones that have come out in B&W. Great shapes as well. Redcliffe, Australia.|
|There is some fantastic building art around Newcastle. This one in Bolton St on the side of the car park looks|
amazing! Redcliffe, Australia.
|This was such a cold and dreary day. The Kodak 400 T Max has caught this perfectly.|
