T-MAX 400

I finally got around to getting my roll of T-MAX 400 film processed last week, and I’m in love! The roll had been in my dad’s old Nikon FM since July. Oi. But when it’s film, you want to save it for just the right moment, you know? Or you just don’t want to carry two camera bodies. ;)
These were all shot with the 50mm lens, I never take it off! I love the combo of a wide-open aperture with the soft buttery-ness of the T-MAX film. Unfortunately some of these prints got a little ruined when I opened up the camera a bit too soon, but I still love them. I could have sworn I rolled the film up all the way, but no!

First up – from the downtown LA photo walk back in July.

And a horribly underexposed Teddy, but of course it’s made precious since his passing earlier this year.

My parents being adorable (this was soon after dad’s neck surgery last year, hence the brace):

Dad’s girdle-style brace, that he’s still wearing as he recovers from back surgery (yup, another surgery in the same year):

And if you’re still with me, I think this shot may have overtaken my favorite photo of Dante to date:

What do you think? I’ve got a roll of Kodak Portra NC that’s up next, can’t wait!
