Walking around with the Rolleiflex
Last Sunday I rode my motorcycle to the town of Grapevine, which is part of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Grapevine has a quaint and historic downtown area with a train depot, some wineries and places to eat, and an active Main St on weekends, especially when the weather is nice. I took my Rolleiflex with a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus 400 ASA and also my x100f digital camera. The purpose of the trip was to get better acquainted with the Rolleiflex and shoot in full sun to make sure small exposures work correctly. After I scanned the negatives I was blown away by the quality and detail of the images! I ordered five rolls of Ilford FP4 125 ASA film to try with a fine grain emulsion. Here are some of the images from this outing.
