One of my favorites Chris, truly.
Thanks Wade! I wasn't sure about this one myself.

Yes please. And not just for the peace and quiet.
Tganks David! It is very peaceful when nobody is at the train station!

Very cool! Is the Roycester one of the ghostly riders?
He's not tall enough to ride by himself (has to be 42 inches. He's 37 or 38 inches tall - can't tell exactly because of the motion blur.)

Once again, that merry go round blur with the static front is simply wowser. Lots to like...just had to reiterate my thoughts again.
Thanks again!. I think this must've been 1/8 or 1/4 second, so probably a deep red filter (cause it's daylight.) I've not been taking as many notes as when I started the month! :arghh:

This is SO EXCELLENT! I presume this was with the Washi F? Did you know when you released the shutter the film would render the blurred highlights so well?
Yes, and this is how much of a math nerd I am: I counted the seconds for a revolution, and figured how long an exposure would be needed for a 20-30% elongation. And yes, based on the bald sky (Washi F is nearly orthochromatic - it's not sensitive to red at all. Makes indoor pictures especially challenging. But I love the 'sploochy' thing it does with light so much, I'm gonna keep using it for a while) it's Washi F. Why oh why can't they find a way of combining the light handling of F with the spectral sensitivity of Z. That film would be so close to HIE, which I consider the best film ever ...

ps, I just watched Time Zero on Panther's recommendation. I'm thinking, "Isn't it just chemistry that is needed to combine the behaviors of two films? After all, in the movie they duplicated what Polaroid did in the 70s, 80s, 90s and the first part of the naughts with real-time developing film, without any of the previous chemicals of process notes! Surely a company (Washi) that has all the components to get the film we want can do it? Maybe they need chemists? Hey, I'm a chemist! There must be a couple already in France though."

Lovely to continue the story of Royce and that train station

… and the impressive track construction, bridged, and it's length. With this film ;)

Day 25: Run!
View attachment 1648753

Ever notice how in any cartoon or comedy sketch, the protagonist always runs directly away from a pursuing train along the track, rather than taking two steps either right or left? This teaches the lesson of comedy over practicality.
Yeah, a monster, run! It MUST be like that: along the tracks. The only way to make sure the comic superhero finally gets over-run ;)

Yes, your math worked out ;)

Thanks for catching up! Now I've got some catching up to do myself!

In #27 and #30, Royce looks like he is jumping out of frame. You have quickly mastered the Washi F in my estimation. #28 Looks surreal. The lighting in this image is represented in a nearly alien way. #29 Looks like two of the bots from our other Octoberfest colleague. Is that what you were going for? If so, success!
