More from that evening of Drinking

I was riding the bus home today, and noticed an Asian gal reading a motivational book titled 'Seven Elements of Being Success'. I'm no motivational speaker, but I imagine that one element should be good grammar-ing? Mind you, the book was in Chinese, with an English subtitle, so it was just a bad Chinglish translation, but still... Now your next logical question might be, if the book was in Chinese, why have an English subtitle at all? Great question. I like to think of it as no different than white dudes that tattoo random Chinese characters on their backs. It adds street cred, or something?

Anyways, I developed some film from Gregg's stag, and thought I'd share some portraits of the boys. Including coincidentally, one of whom happens to have a random Chinese character tattooed on his forearm. :)

Shot with the Rolleiflex 2.8E, on Kodak Tri-X 400, pushed 1 stop in Rodinal (1+50 for 16:30min @68 deg. F).


  1. It was my first time to tinker and try shooting with a Rolleiflex yesterday, and it was so interesting to try something new! Then seeing these incredibly sharp photos make me fill with GAS haha!

  2. The Rollei (or any TLR) takes a bit of getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, you'll love it.
