Last Sunday was a gloomy, foggy day by the shores of Lake Ontario in Toronto, but I was still happy with some images I got with my Hasselblad.
In yesterday’s post I featured images created using long discontinued Kodak Technical Pan. Thankfully, there is a worthy successor still being made today: Rollei ATP 1.1. This is another slow speed film with extremely fine grain and sharpness, but also requiring special handling in development. This first roll was developed using Rollei RLC Low contrast developer, which does a great job, but is not cheap. I have more of this film coming, and I will test one roll using Rodinal, a much less expensive developer, to see if I can get comparable results.

According to the calendar, we have a few more days of summer left, but the end of the season is near. I was at the Beaches last night, and the weather was lovely, the atmosphere peaceful, but to me tinged with a wistfulness, an awareness of the passing of time.
