white noise, smoothed over, distant murmur, louder, peak, pulled out, fading, loosening, distant sound. a gentle vroooom, a week vrrrom

In the ‘solitutde’ of my home, the clock ticks away, the air mingles through the leaves. the air now rushes through the leaves. each gust pushing the other one out. Out you go! My turn. Must reach the other side.

The cars are driving on S.Van Ness. Always speeding, cannot stop. I wouldn’t either with that long vast stretch of road where everyone goes faster only to come to a stop at 13th. Cars come, cars go, no one ever stops. No one ever honks.

The clank and muffled clatter of the dishes being washed two floors below me. The pillow talk of lovers on screen a floor above me.

Each sound on its own wraps your senses. All together, it makes a quiet day at home.

As for the pictures below, all are Tri-X 400(some of which have been pushed to 1600), either with a Voigtlander Bessa R3A or a Contax G2. Two things come to mind as write that a) given any product you’ll find an ardent fan base on the internet. Convincing you to go out and get it. If you like the craft of manual film cameras, skip the Contax G2. It’s a film point and shoot. That might be your thing. Not mine. And I applied Yellow/Orange contrast filters to the below image. Black and whites really improve with the addition of a contrast filter. Time to get one eh?
