A dreamy black and white photo of a path through a wooded area with tangles of trees and fallen branches along it. A small border collie mix pup is in the distance in soft focus and running towards the camera. Taken with my Nikon F3 HP using a Tokina 35-105mm lens and black and white Ilford 400 HP film.
All of these images were taken with my Bilora Box camera which is a medium format camera produced in Germany. Mine is probably from the 1940s. It takes 6 x 9 cm images on 120 roll film. The shutter speed is 1/50 and, without a tripod as I was when I took these, it's basically impossible to get a steady image. So these photos all look like they are from the early 1900s to me. However, I took them in 2015.

Ilford HP Plus 400 bw film.
A maple tree growing nearly horizontally over a pond is beginning to bud with its red blossoms. Three sliders have crawled out of the water to sun themselves on a branch that reaches into the water. The dark pond waters are disturbed and reflect the red hues and pale greens of the few green plants in this mid-winter image. Due to the use of the lens extender and the bright sunlight, the colors have taken on an almost unnatural quality and the image is a bit painterly at the edges such that the image almost looks like a photos processed in the 1970s.
