Winter is over

I have not posted much lately, too much work and laziness, which is a bad combination.

Here are a few taken during our gray season, looking at our grayish water under gray skies.

Buceo harbor under a drizzle.

Near Sarandi wharf, an old couple enjoys the view in a Sunday morning.

Thanks for looking! First two 35mm with Nikon 35-105. last in 120 out of the Super-Isolette. Film was FP4+, developed in Beutler.

Old Winston would be proud

In 1958, the local Montevideo government erected a monument to Winston Churchill near Pocitos Beach. He looks grim, as if the Germans were coming again.

The monument is in a nice, small square, looking to the beach (and to the storms, where they choose to visit).

Some words by Mansfield are transcribed below the bust. I believe old Winston, while he did care for words, would better appreciate a gin and tonic in our 30 C summer.  

What Winston is looking at: Pocitos Beach.

Thanks for looking! Yes it is film. FP4+ in DK-50 1:1 (testing old mix).
