Off to Fergus with Friends


I haven't really shot around Fergus in ages, my friend Jean Pierre of 40+ years was in town for a visit and a group of old frriends from high school wanted to day trip so we went up to Fergus then Elora and had a blast. The camera choice this outing was one of my Olympus OM-1md's, the one with the wonky but not dead meter, I packed my Sekonic meter and ran with Eastman Double X black and white film. 

As motion picture stocks go, Eastman Double X is easy to shoot with like ORWO UN 54 and easy to process, if you can get D96, great, failing that D76/ID-11 or HC110 are the go to developers. I went with Ilfotec HC as I don't use HC110 anymore, and you know what. I love the results more than what I get out D76 or HC110. I shot at the native daylight 250 ISO and developed for seven minutes at 20c. The results you see below. 

Camera: Olympus OM-1md, Zuiko MC lenses. 

Film: Eastman Double X, Ilfotec HC 1+31.
