A couple more self developed images from the wonderful Yashica MAT 124 medium format film camera. Images were taken on Kodak Ektar and Porta in Graz, Austria

Volkgarten, Graz

Volkgarten, Graz – Yashica Mat 124The Volkgarten in Graz is next to my work. This day I was on the last of the three films and wish to finish the roll. So I could develop all three during the week.

The yellow church through the tree within the Volkgarten took some time to frame. I was glad my work colleague was patience while a moved and shoved the Yashica left to right and back again.

I was just interested in the details of the sparkling snow and wish to capture the magic of the light. Not an easy feat I must admit. However the Yashica shined through -(pun probably intended)

I want to create a retro feel with the phone box using the camera with the kodak film, I think it hits the spot.

Another shot, I had the idea with these roof top to make a image like a 1970’s album cover. Something like Pink Floyd …

 

Papers by the Mur Graz, Yashica Mat 124
Papers by the Mur Graz, Yashica Mat 124

The bundle of newspapers by the river Mur in Graz is one of my favourite in the three rolls of film I had taken. Two Kodak Ektar and one Kodak Porta. I don’t know why the bundle of newspapers were left by the shoreline. Maybe they were dumped there and forgotten. I just like the way the binding is tight and the paper is starting to shred under the tension. Along the weathering of the material in nature.

Finally a classic image of the City of Graz in wintertime even with snow too.
