Continuing with my hina matsuri photos

Continuing with my hina matsuri photos

As I mentioned in previous posts, the area I live in was fortunately not directly affected by the massive earthquake and tsunami. People here are going about their business as normal despite potential for a triple nuclear meltdown at the striken Fukushima nuclear power plant. I guess while I sit here too and wait for some good information (which has been in scarce supply), I’ll go about finishing up my series on the Hina Matsuri.

This came from a roll of film I was experimenting with.  I shot Tri-X at EI200 and pulled development a bit.  Some people say this produces really nice images.  I personally am not impressed and prefer Fujifilm Acros@200 over Tri-X@200.

Vintage Hina Doll

My girlfriend and I went around a historic part of town which had several houses and buildings open with many Hina Matsuri dolls on display inside, including some vintage dolls.
