Fish Pond – Holga B&W

Fish Pond

I took this shot on a roll of Fuji Neopan 400 black and white film (pulled to 250 during film development) at Balboa Park, the same day I took the colored shots that I posted last week. I didn’t think this was going to be a very interesting shot when I took it, but turns out I love it. The detailed ripples on the water, the way the fish seems to be swimming in the path of the light, and the reflections of the trees and building in the water all just work together. It helped that I had to do absolutely no dodging or burning to get the print to expose perfectly.
