Between February and March I had a rough 2 weeks straight on business trip. I drove down from home to Frosinone for a couple of days, drove straight down to Foggia to teach a class, came back to Naples on Friday afternoon to say hi to my parents, then drove right back up to Rome late in the Evening. Saturday morning I hopped on a train that took me to the airport where I took a flight that eventually brought me to Israel.
I got there late in the evening, and the next morning I was already at work. Israel has a different work week, that starts on a Sunday and ends on a Thursday.
I didn’t really get any time to discover the city. All i was left with were the late evenings, so all my photos were taken around that time and on the drive to and from work. At least i wasn’t driving…
It’s really different from where i’ve been up to this point. Mostly due to my ignorance, but i had some tension going in. The beefed up security doesn’t help, but after a couple days i eventually got used to it, and can’t wait to get back there this Summer.
So the pictures are really not that great and all taken with my phone.
I wasn’t sure whether they should have stayed in color or black and white, BUT i fixed my Pentax a few weeks ago and already got some rolls through, so there’s gonna be tons of film rolling (pun intended) in the blog soon.
To my surprise i developed 5 rolls, and soon enough 6 more are on the shelf waiting. The house is shaping up nicely and i have my desk and scanner back all working AND the 24 inch monitor (which helps a lot when editing).
Looking forward to 4 days off work now, so hopefully i’ll get some more down time to write, develop, scan and shop for some developer and film. And who knows… i got my eye on a Mamiya M645…… we’ll see!
