Swirling Pathway

Minster on Sea, England. 2022

The sunlight periodically appearing through the clouds catching the grasses and I think I managed to capture the scene, although metering wasn’t that easy. Image was taken at f/2.8 at ISO 100 with the built in red filter setting. It was one of those occasions I wished I’d had a neutral density filter with me.

Although this was shot on a previous roll of Kodak Pro Image film, it might be one of the last roll of colour film I shot. Ever since Kodak’s announcement of a 20% price increase on film I’m beginning to doubt whether or not the use of colour is sustainable. You only have to Google colour film prices. Last pack of 5 Pro Image I purchased was £26.00, now anywhere from £37 to £42 RRP. With current prices and the added development cost, which for me is working out at £13 to £14 per roll. Seems silly when I have a digital Leica M-P (Typ240) sitting at home.

On a side note, I also noticed the price of a bulk 30M roll of Fomapan 100 has gone up. I last paid £42, which works out at £2.10 per roll for twenty 36 exposure films. Now listed online between £58 to £60.

An image we can all relate to here in the UK and Europe at the present time.
