We had one of our warmest days yet here in Calgary, and I decided to take advantage of the opportunity by grabbing my 50D and my spiffy new Thinktank doublewide to keep two more lenses in along with some spare CF cards and battery.
It doesn’t hold a lot, and honestly that’s a good thing as it forces me to pare down and only bring what I’ll actually need
This shot is just as I was about to step out onto the bridge where I took a few more photos. I was doing train checks pretty frequently as the track curves out of view on both sides. Fortunately I was already clear of the bridge when one did decide to come along!
Processed in Bibble Pro 5 using the Andrea film simulation plugin set to camera stock BN Kodak Tri-X Pan and BN Forte Fortezo for print stock after choosing to go B&W. I love B&W photography, but don’t have a lot of experience *yet* shooting it. Fairly pleased with this result. I’m a fairly prolific amateur, generally shooting urban/urban decay and a lot of night photography. These days I probably spend 20+ hours a week out with my camera just exploring and finding shots that speak to me. Some pictures that I post to flickr only speak to me for a little while… others seem to have better staying power.
