Thinking about spring and fujichrome

On an almost daily basis during the work week I have been out wandering around taking pictures. I've been slowly exploring all the streets and little alleys within a 10 block radius of my work. It's been a lot of fun, but it's also been a lot of cold.

I was scanning through some film last night when I came across a roll I had taken last spring while out on one of these walks. This was probably from late spring judging by the blooms on the tree. It made me wish spring would get here sooner. Not only does the warmer weather make the walking around more enjoyable, the bright sky and vibrant colors make shooting fujichrome worthwhile. No sense in wasting such vibrant film when it's grey and dreary outside.

So here's a couple shots from last year to entice spring to arrive sooner. Taken from Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood:

I too envy your medium format-ness! Long time no talk, Matt. Glad to see you're making time for regular blogs again!
