On April 18 I joined John Linton and Suresh Dagubatti for a photo walk along the paths I’ve carved so often in Providence. I have “known” John for a long time but only from Facebook connections and met Suresh for the first time. The weather was a bit gnarly with a fine drizzle and the light was flat. But we were taking pictures and happy as clams. This was my first time shooting with Ilford Delta 3200, loaded as the night blanketed the day. I enjoyed the freedom extra film speed imparted to the hand-held images. They are very organic and gritty and I like them. Apparently Ilford DDX or Microphen are the preferred developers for this film. Having neither I developed it in HC 110 dilution B. I purchased the Delta 3200 at Hunt’s Photo. They have stacks of TriX and HP5 on the shelf but two lonely rolls of Delta 3200 sat orphaned on the shelf’s edge. It’s not a popular film as the inventory demonstrates. I suppose I could have done more creative things with a tripod but I wanted to go stealth and made do with steadied hands. I will shoot this film again soon. Camera was my beloved Leica M3, 50mm Summicron.
