Analogue love: ‘Stares’

Another novelty of the blog: from now on I’ll be sharing some {of the tons of} analogue photographs I have.

I took this one last February in Madrid, in the calle Postas, in my way to the Plaza Mayor. It was almost Carnival so the costume shops were full of masks staring at the visitors.

Otra novedad del blog: de ahora en adelante iré compartiendo algunas {de los millones de} fotos analógicas que tengo.

Tomé ésta el pasado febrero en Madrid, en la calle Postas, en mi camino hacia la Plaza Mayor. Era casi Carnaval así que las tiendas de disfraces estaban llenas de máscaras mirando fijante a los visitantes.

 

This photograph was taken with my Halina Paulette and an Ilford FP4 film. And, despite the other analogue photos I’ve shown you, I had to adjust the brightness/contrast because, out of nowhere, my scanner decided that the main colour was grey, not white, not black, just grey… leaving the photograph looking not a single bit like the original print.

Esta foto la tomé con mi Halina Paulette y un carrete Ilford FP4. Y, al contrario que las otras fotos analógicas que ya os he enseñado, he tenido que ajustar el brillo/contraste porque, de la nada, mi scanner ha decidido que el color principal era el gris, no el blanco, ni el negro, simplemente gris… dejando la foto sin que se pareciera ni un poco a la copia original.
