This was taken with that first test roll of film from a few posts back, but I’m posting it today because we had an official tasting of my son’s basil (the varieties grown include Lemon, Thai, Sweet, and Green Globe—which is spicy).

Don’t tell the cops.

Two half-innings before the storm came.

Two photos from two halves of the very 1st inning… before the rain stopped the game.

Photographed through the chain link fence.

This is from Test Roll #1 (evaluating my M2-R and Voigtländer 40/1.4).

I thought I was shooting @ f/1.4, but realized too late I was @ f/2.8… hence the underexposure.

Still, I like the moment that was caught; in fact I like it more than anything else I’ve done lately.
