Haida Gwaii on Slide Film

My week 22 entry for the 52 Rolls project is most of a roll of slide film shot on Haida Gwaii a few weeks ago. I love the colours rendered by this film.

52 rolls


A few weeks ago I had a business trip to Haida Gwaii (known by the settler populations for a decades as the Queen Charlotte Islands, permanently renamed to Haida Gwaii a few years ago); this is the roll of film I shot during that trip. Today’s post is my 22nd entry in the 52 Rolls project and once again is via the Canon Elan 7N, 50/1.4 and 16-35/2.8 lenses.
