I went for a hike the other day at noon. Silly thing to do in the heat! Still, it was a great thing to do, moving from watery creeks to woodland and then into the heat of the chaparral. Shade became a goal after a point, and under a tree I found this lovely bush. No idea what it is, but it was quite lovely.
I finally had time to scan my film I shot last weekend up at the botanical garden. I have just recently picked up an Olympus OM-4T. To see if it worked, I used it completely on auto mode, essentially aperture priority. It worked really well! The film is an old standby, Ultramax 400, which is a pretty nice, inexpensive color negative film. I pushed a bit here and there in post, but the beauty of the film always comes through.
