Film Photography: Urban Greenery in Fort Washington Park

Last week I posted some slide film pictures of the Little Red Lighthouse. Today, I'm sharing a dozen pictures taken on the way there. I shot these on the new Kodak Portra film (both 160 and 400 ISO). The trip to the lighthouse is interesting, especially if you just decide to wing it and not check the directions on how to get there. If you go, I definitely recommend doing a little research rather than taking the meandering path I did to figure out how to traverse the multiple roadways that cut through your path on the way. That said, if you have the time and strong legs you could follow my route and find some strange stuff. View of the George Washington Bridge and Early Morning Traffic on the Parkway, Kodak Portra 400

I liked the sunlight falling onto the path as I walked through Fort Washington Park. Scenes like this are really an oddity for me since we've moved to New York.

I stumbled across this scene when I took a wrong turn. Definitely a story here... Kodak Portra 400

And finally, my destination of the Little Red Lighthouse, Kodak Portra 160

About half of these pictures were from my first roll of the new Kodak Portra 160 film. It's very similar to the 400 in terms of scanning and characteristics. Of course these shots are from the Hasselblad 501cm.

If you are interested, my last blog post has about a dozen pictures of the Little Red Lighthouse on Fuji Slide film.
