Before I get into the post I want to share a few things I have learned recently. When you want to review, edit and publish a large number of photographs, don’t try to use new software and expect it to work like the programs you are used to . The second is that I need to request the “enhanced” scans from the company that has been developing my film. The standard ones, just ain’t cutting it. What I really want to do is get the gear and develop my own film but that’s a project for the new year.
Fall in the south means football. In my opinion, one of the reasons Atlanta couldn’t sustain a professional hockey team was due to the fact the NHL season overlaps with college football. Being originally from the North, we enjoyed football but it wasn’t a religion. Here in the South going to a college football game is an experience all onto itself. In fact to give you an idea of how crazy it is, the Georgia Tech fight song contains the phrase “to hell with Georgia” in reference to their state rival football team. I love the fall.
On this trip to Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field (I kid you not, that is how they refer to the stadium), I brought my trusty Nikon N90s and Ilford Delta 100 film. I kept a 50 mm lens on to give a feel of how the game looks from our seats.
