Expired film and kids

I've unsuccessfully tried a few expired films...they've all turned out fairly yucky, looking muddy and grainy. I recently gave it another shot with an expired pack of Portra 160NC and I really love the way it turned out. Here are a few examples. Oh and that blonde lady is my mother. She is just awesome.  

I've also continued to have a lot of fun with the Rolleiflex. It's a really handy camera for snapshots of the kids. 

The Hassy love affair continues

The more I keep shooting my Hasselblad, the more I fall in love with it. It's almost strange how connected I am starting to feel with it...I mean, it's just a camera, right? It IS, but it is a beautiful piece of machinery. Everything from that giant, bright & clear viewfinder to the sexy sound of the shutter has me completely hooked. Here are a few frames from my shoot with Kate on the bridge. Mostly Portra 400 with some Fuji 400H sprinkled in for good measure. Thanks for the Find Lab for doing a fantastic job developing and scanning.
