I got back from a family trip to New York yesterday so it’d be a fair assumption to expect quite a few photos from there in the coming days (and weeks!). I shot six rolls in total: 2 x Kodak Portra 400 (135); 2 x Ilford HP5+ (135); 1 x Kodak Portra 400 (120); 1 x Kodak Ektar (120). I’m still waiting for the colour shots to be processed, so don’t expect I’ll see those until next week, but I’ve started on the two rolls of HP5 and have scanned a few strips already.
I’m looking forward to seeing the colour shots, but the black and whites I took in and around a rainy Times Square have come out pretty well.
I’d have loved to have spent days just wandering the streets taking photos, but it’s not really possible to do it freely on a family trip, so I just grabbed stuff wherever I could as we went about our holiday. I’d really like to go back and take more photos, but it’s a long way from home and I might never get to visit again – I think if we make another trip to the US we’ll probably aim to visit somewhere else.
Here’s one of my Times Square pics to kick things off.

Do you use any waterproof covers for your camera when you shoot in the rain?
Hi. No, no rain cover was used. I just stood under shelter as much as possible and kept wiping the camera down with a dry handkerchief when it got some raindrops on it. The camera is small enough to shoot one-handed, so I can also use an umbrella with it (if it’s not windy!), although I didn’t have one with me on this occasion.
