Going out after a good rain leaves some wonderful reflections on a lot of surfaces. When the sun breaks through the clouds the light shines and casts a lot of interesting shadows. I  think I want to capture more puddles and light on the future.

My start in film developing

I just started to develop my own black and white film and have a few rolls that I have developed. I have some from the trip out west from earlier and from earlier in the year. It was interesting doing your first roll as I never have taken a class so it is all new to me. I have been shooting film for about 2-3 years but always had a lab to develop and scan, last year I started to scan myself. I have shot color a lot less too but I hope to develop C-41 soon but been enjoying black and white film and leaving color for my X-Pro2 which does a fine job. This photo was taken on one of the photo clubs outings and this couple was sitting enjoying the view of Richmond.

Lee Bridge over the Island

The Lee Bridge is right in the city of Richmond. It is route 301/1 and there is awalking bridge underneath that is meant for pedestrian use. Taking that leads you to Bell Island in the city which is a great park to get away. The Lee Bridhge travels right on over the island and you can some interesting angles from in.
