Lassiter Mills Park, Raleigh NC

I was in Raleigh recently and had a chance to go on a lit­tle photo excur­sion with Karl. We went to the Las­siter Mills Park where I planned to shoot some of my FP4 film in the GA645. Fate had other plans.

I’d had the same set of CR123 bat­ter­ies in the Fuji for years and they finally gave out that morn­ing. Well, they had given out some­time in the lat­ter part of 2013, but I didn’t know that until that brisk Feb­ru­ary morn (Aside — it does always seem that Karl and I find pho­tog­ra­phy a bit cold). With no other cam­era on me but my iPhone 4S, I decided to shoot a “roll.” Below are my favorites from the session.

They are unabashedly dig­i­tal — cap­tured on a phone, post-processed to hell and back. But some­times you must embrace the media you have — the alter­na­tive would have been no imagery at all.
