Another Saturday, another roundup of blog posts I read and liked all week. While I normally share posts from all of my interests, this week all of the posts I liked best are about photography!

I think Ilford Pan-F Plus 50 is slow film, at ISO 50. But this week Mark O’Brien shared his experience shooting ISO 6 film. Yes, that’s right, six. And on some shots, he wishes he had metered at ISO 3! Read Slow Poke. Shooting with Kodak 2366 b&w film.

Darren Rose pauses to reflect on the end of summer, and share some wonderful photos he took of late-summer light and of some ponies. The pony photos look like they belong in a fantasy novel! Read The End of Summer

Here are some stunning photographs from Mike Connealy on Fujifilm Neopan 100 Acros black-and-white 35mm film. Mike’s shot a lot of this film in medium format, but never in 35mm. He really makes the stuff sing. Read Acros

    Lots of lovely work in this week’s roundup — but today Darren Rose’s images spoke to me most. As you say, they have an almost mythical quality to them. Just gorgeous.

    I read Mike Connealy now and then. This was a good link on the Acros as he had a link at the bottom on HC-110 which I have a bottle of along with D-76, Rodinal and an Ilford developer. Some good information on using HC-110 as I prefer to develop B&W myself.
