Black and White

Documentary

Black and white film always takes longer to get back from the lab.  When I was in the Maritimes, I loaded a roll of TMax 400 into my Pentax K1000 just in case I felt like using it.  During my time there, I hardly used it, and when I got home I hadn’t even shot the whole roll, and it sat in my camera for another couple weeks before I finished it off.

I like colour photography more, probably because I was raised and live in a world of colour.  They also seem more real.  When I look at black and white photographs, even ones I shot myself, they seem like they were made long ago.  No matter how modern the content, or how recent the event, I feel like I am looking back into the first half of the 20th century.

All photos here were developed and scanned by Downtown Camera in Toronto, ON.  Title image taken in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
