sawdust and diamonds
One beautiful thing about living in Belgium is that you are close to lots of things – one of them being France. I picked up Marine in Lille and from there we continued to Cap Gris Nez – a beautiful coastal area west of Calais…what I liked is that you could see the white cliffs of Dover on the other side … what I did not like is that everything was fenced in – you were forced to walk along a paved pathway with a rather high fence left and right. Especially if you want to take pictures it limits you quite a bit… later we found an area that was accessible and allowed us to shoot. Weather was colder than the previous days – but because we had to walk quite a bit, we never really got cold – but I wish we would have had a bit more sun for more intense colours here and there… no make-up, no styling and therefore no making-of pictures this time…
I briefly talked to a friendly photographer passing by… who spotted me while I was sitting on the ground refilling my film inserts… I think he took some pictures of us while shooting … so maybe there are some making-of’s out there 🙂
The technical details:
Zeiss 2/80mm – shot wide open all the time
Fuji Acros 100, Kodak Portra 160NC and Fuji 400H – all rated at 100.
some more pictures might follow… still some scanning to do.
