At the gate

At the gate
Fujifilm Velvia (expired 8-2006)

The south entrance to Crown Hill Cemetery is down a side street off 38th Street in Indianapolis. The entrance is a giant concrete affair built in 1885, with several peaked arches and this blue-green gate. I like this gate and have photographed it many times.

I’ve put more rolls of film through my Yashica-12 this year than any other camera. As I’ve taught myself to develop black-and-white film this year, I reached for the 12 because of its excellent image quality. It’s been on my desk ever since, so it was a no-brainer to load this roll of Velvia into it.

    The Yashica 124 was my first decent film camera when I got back into the hobby. At some point I upgraded to a Rolleiflex. Unfortunately I had to sell it at some point. It’s the one camera I regret selling. The image quality is great, it’s comparatively small and super quiet. Some day I’ll have to get one again.

      I’ve always wanted to try a Rolleiflex. But really, I love these Yashica TLRs so much that if I never get that Rolleiflex chance I’ll be ok.
