D and I recently took one of our day trips out to Leura, a small town in the Blue Mountains that is around a ninety minute drive west of Sydney. We had been hoping to catch the leaves in all their Autumnal prettiness, but wound up being a little early for that (although my sunglasses made everything look deceptively red and orange ... on the drive out there I kept exclaiming "oh wow, look at that tree! So gorgeous!" whilst D had absolutely no idea of what I was talking about). So we spent a few hours wandering around, taking photographs, eating, drinking coffee, buying chocolates from Josophan's (which were ridiculously good) and doing umm a little bit of shopping at Maison Montage for some glassware that we didn't really need but was so pretty that I couldn't resist (really I could have bought out half the store, finances permitting, but ... well ... they did not, so I just gazed at everything in a forlorn sort of way until D dragged me out of there). It was all quite lovely, really :)
So anyway, these photos were shot on Kodak Portra 400, which I am quite taken with. I am loving film photography but it is a pricey hobby (the Portra 400 is $24.00 a roll, not to mention the cost of developing and scanning), so I need to lay off just a wee bit and revert to my D700 for a little while (sob).
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter, by the way!
