A walk around Swissvale

As part of my recovery from spinal surgery I have to walk as much as I possibly can. I’ve been walking between teaching online classes, between meetings, between working on grant proposals. A camera is a great companion for walks – it helps you notice and capture things that you normally walk by without giving them a second glance.

All the photos in this post have been taken with a Fujifilm XT-3 camera and a 23mm f/2 lens, using Fujifilm Arcos B&W film preset with a red filter. #swissvale #fujifilm #fujifilmxt3 #blackandwhitephotography
