I’ve been using Ilford Delta 100 for the past few weeks, bulk loaded from a 100′ roll. Where Delta 100 may not be a good option for a lot of people dealing with the dull and dark days of winter elsewhere in the northern hemisphere, it’s still a good option for me here in Southern California. While I don’t think it will ever be my “go to” film choice, I have enjoyed using it and like the results I’m getting for it. I’m still looking for a low iso film to use as we approach spring and summer. Here in Southern California the sun is extremely bright so using a higher iso film limits options for shooting wide open unless I use an ND filter which is always an option if needed. But it would be great to find a low iso film for every day use that has the flexibility of HP5 or Tri-X.
Here are a few of my favorite shots taken over the past week on my Leica MP. Some of the first ones are of a short hike I took to Torrey Pines State Park. Our favorite place to walk on a Saturday morning is the boardwalk at Mission Beach here in San Diego. There are always a lot of people and activities to capture. I just like to capture normal life in our city and this is a good place to go.
As always, thanks for reading!
