I have no idea what this is used for. It’s outside Bahr’s Seafood Restaurant in Highlands, NJ.

Shot in Asbury Park with my #contaxiiia on @kodak Eastman No. 10 #film that expired in March, 1931 (yes, the film expired more than 90 years ago). Developed in #hc110, 45 ml of syrup to 450 ml of water, at 40 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius) for 9 minutes. 1/25 seconds at f/1.5. #filmphotography #staybrokeshootfilm #allthroughalenspodcast #fossilizedfilm

Doo-Wop Wawa. Another example of overlapping photos from my #contaxiii on #kodak2238. When Wawa wanted to build in Wildwood, they went before the zoning board and were told that their usual cookie cutter store wouldn’t cut it and they should attempt to fit in with the vernacular Doo-Wop architecture that defines the city. So they went away and came back with this. #film #filmphotography #filmisnotdead #allthroughalenspodcast #rodinal

I took my #contaxiii when we were on vacation recently in Cape May. One of the rolls I shot was a too-tightly-wound roll of #kodak2238. I wound up with a whole roll of overlapping photos. Some of them didn’t suck. This is the view from the back porch at Mermaids, a restaurant on the beach where we had breakfast one morning. #film #filmphotography #staybrokeshootfilm #filmisnotdead #allthroughalenspodcast

I wonder what the story is here. The Wildwood boardwalk is replete with opportunities to make bad choices.

Returning to the theme of Hot Texas Wieners, Libby’s Lunch in Paterson is one of the first places to originate the dish. They’re located near the Great Falls in Paterson on land owned by the city. Unfortunately, they are on the verge of shutting down, as their landlord, the aforementioned city of Paterson, is not happy that they haven’t received rent in the past three years. Oops. We went there for takeout this past Sunday so we could experience the greatness of their take on the Hot Texas Wiener while we can. #rollfilmweek #rollfilmweek2020 #film #filmphotography #contaxiii #rodinal

In a corner of northern New Jersey, the local delicacy is a grilled hot dog covered in onions, mustard, and chili. This is referred to for some reason as a Hot Texas Wiener. River View East in Elmwood Park is one of the classic spots that specializes in this gastronomic experience. I’ve eaten here often, as it is about a mile from where my wife grew up. But I’ve never had one of their Hot Texas Wieners. Going to have to rectify that oversight at some point. #rollfilmweek #rollfilmweek2020 #film #filmphotography #contaxiii #eastman5222 #doublexx

First roll through my new-to-me Contax III. Eastman 5222 Double X (via @cinestillfilm) developed in #rodinal 1:50 for 11 minutes. The camera has an f/1.5 Sonnar lens, and I’m loving it. I’ve had three Kiev rangefinders, which are essentially the same camera, but this one feels more solid than the later ones I had, which were made in the 1970s. My Kiev II from 1952 fells very similar to this, though. All my Kiev’s are broken, sadly, and it’s hard to find anyone willing to fix them. The 1952 would be worth fixing. Anyway, I’m loving this 1936 Contax.
