Tues 04.15.14 – More on my one day adventure to Chicago later, when it is not 12:41am and I am ready to fall over from being awake since 3:30am…
Last night did Christ the Sun rise from the Dark,
Thy mystic harvest of the fields of God.
And now the little wandering tribes of bees
Are brawling in the scarlet flowers abroad.
The winds are soft with birdsong; all night long
Darkling the nightingale her descant told,
And now inside church doors the happy folk
The Alleluia chant a hundredfold.
O father of thy folk, be thine by right
The Easter joy the threshold of the light.
Fri 04.04.14 – Wherein they promptly dragged me home, evening walk cut very short.
Wed 03.26.14 – A few months ago I downloaded the DxOMark Filmpack Lightroom Plugin, after seeing on a web site somewhere that the plugin would allow one to take one’s digital camera files and develop / digitally process them as various films – be it black and white film or color film.
Since I have fallen in love with Fujifilm Velvia 100 & 50 color slide film and Ilford Super XP2 400 black and white film this summer, and I really don’t like to spend time on post-processing, experimenting with the film pack has been fun. One just opens the images and presses the film you want to use, then save. Fast and fun.
Today, I took a photo of the Seal Beach pier before sunset as large, fluffy clouds were floating by. The top image is the original from my Nokia Lumia 1020 and the rest are various film pack processings. The DxOMark filmpack version of FujiFilm Velvia 50 is a bit over the top for my tastes, but I do like the black and white processings. Which do you like best?
