always wanted to take a straight photo to the sun
the kite gave me a good excuse
in february i went to cardiff by the sea
i had no idea power kites would be there!
and i had a black & white film for a colorful day!...
i took a couple of pictures with the little old digital camera anyway
and some with the black & white film
since i had to go to a dark room to develop
i sort of forgot about them

but... a couple of day ago, when i saw this
photo by the_thilo
& i remembered the colorful kites in shot in black & white... it is a very nice film! afterall, a classic T-MAX iso 100, black & white, perfect for high contrast, sunny days & a camera like the Nikkormat

unfortunately this picture has dust & scratches from the scan
yet it is straight staring at the sun
