Exploring Nezu

Exploring Nezu

I spent a lot of this weekend scanning my images from last weekend's photowalk around Nezu.  I haven't done a photowalk since last August when a group of us explored Yanaka.   I really enjoy doing these and plan to hold another one when I am in San Francisco next month. I got 4 rolls back from the lab earlier in the week.   It is amazing how long it can take to scan that much film.  I am trying to be selective by making contact sheets and then determining which images to scan but even then I end up scanning images that I don't end up keeping.   It can take  around 10 minutes to scan an image at 3,200 DPI so these can be costly mistakes.   I decided to start with my Asita roll.   I shot my first roll of Astia a few months ago and just fell in love with this film.  This is such a magical film.   I was lucky enough to buy a stockpile of expired rolls on eBay as it is no longer made.  If I find more I will buy it in a second.

Today's configuration: Leica M6-J various lens Astia 100 RAF film.

We started off at Nezu Jinja Shrine.  It is a huge beautiful shrine.  I could spend hours photographing the details here.   I was bright and sunny but I imagine it is stunning when it is a little overcast and a bit damp...
