Week 30: Salmon River

There is a more famous Salmon River out in Oregon, but we have a small one here in Connecticut as well.  It was named before the eastern Salmon stopped spawning in this river, and restoration efforts have not had much luck.  Part of it is probably due to places like the small falls in these photos.  At one time this was dammed up for a small mill nearby, and I doubt they had fish ladders back then.

I took a new emulsion for me out on this day, Arista.EDU Ultra 400, loaded in my Fujica GW690.  I developed these in Perceptol, 10 minutes at 20C (roughly).  Each time I use this camera I am wow’ed by the negatives when I pull them out of the tank.  This was no different.

On this last shot, I tried to handhold 1/8 of a second.  It is pretty soft focus everyplace as a result.

I have to catch up on my color film processing to post my weeks 31 and 32 rolls.
