Drain with Boy


I don’t know who this kid is but he arrived in yellow rain jacket just when I was ready to take photos.

This picture of the Ross Bay storm drain was taken with an Olympus XA2 and expired no-name film packaged in the US, and likely long expired.

I think it’s Kodak of some kind, 400 ISO colour print film.

I liked the way most of the pictures looked converted to black and white – in colour it is too grainy and the colours are difficult to extract with scanning.

The roll will eventually show up on my 2016 52 Rolls project.

  3. I’ve always converted my colour scans to B/W just to see how the look changes, and some of them have turned out pretty nice that way! just like this photo of the storm drain 🙂
