Film: Agfa Crossbird 200 (processed in traditional E6)
June of 2015
I had one more trip to Oregon to make following my trip there in mid-March. This time, I would be likely to journey farther afield than Portland, and I would have much more of an opportunity to shoot during daylight hours. Thus, I could focus on far more than simply the lovely scenes of Neon present in my Portland After Dark feature. One thing I knew for certain was that in a retro-savvy town like Portland as well as its neighboring environs, I wanted to bring a roll of Agfa's CR-200, also marketed as Agfa Crossbird. I figured that the warmly nostalgic hues of this film would be ideal to have at my disposal for some scenes on this trip, and elected to use the smaller Zeiss folder for this purpose so as to enable more images to be captured. My last experiences with this camera were underwhelming at wider apertures, but I figured that most of the scenes I would shoot would be done at f/8 or smaller.
1 - Camas, WA - f/8 1/50 - I made one small diversion just to be able to say I walked in Washington State, and these few photos serve as my proof. While the mill in the small town of Camas gives it an odor, the downtown and Liberty Theater look quite nice, and made a fitting retro subject for this film.
