Silverwater Sizzles

Posted by Pete under Film


Last Saturday was the 15th Annual Silverwater Street and Custom Motorcycle show… and it was bloody hot! The forecast was for 42 (nearly 110 in the shade for you non-decimalised) so I took the opportunity of grabbing some cheap colour film from the supermarket. It doesn’t sell any other kind. I had some left over Tetenal c-41 to develop it in and at 38 degrees I wouldn’t have to waste too much water out the esky to cool it down!

Leica M6 TTL LHSA, 35/1.4 Nokton (I miss my ‘lux (and MP)), Fuji Superia Xtra 400 and ND8 filter.

By late morning everyone was already dripping with sweat but the band still needed to warm up…
