Gold, Red & Green: A Magical Autumn Day on Film

I spent a wonderful few hours taking these photographs, I developed and scanned the film back at the lab, and I selected my favourites. I loved how the images all looked together, and I was sitting down to prepare my blog post, when I suddenly realised that I didn’t know what to write. Over the years my writing and I have had our ups and downs, but by and large, writing is the mode of communication with which I’m probably most comfortable. I don’t know whether it was plain old tiredness that prevented my thoughts and words from flowing, or maybe I felt that the images themselves were enough to tell the story of this blustery, bright then cloudy, free-spirited Autumn day.

Photographs taken on the Contax 645 at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire. Some images are shot on Fuji 400H, some on Kodak Ektar pushed two stops in development, and some (in a little experiment as our first time pulling colour film) on Kodak Portra 800 pulled one stop in development. All developing/scanning by UK Film Lab.

Thank you sig, it was such a lovely walk, with the wind blowing and the sun popping in and out, and I was so happy at how well the amazing colours translated into film.

England is still pretty alive, compared to Sweden. All the golden magic is gone.

These are very living photographs, Erica. One can almost reach for the leaves and smell the autumn air. No words needed.

Thank you Sonia, I am pleased you think so!
