in the long grass

Taken with a Zenit EM camera in week 135 of my 52 film cameras in 52 weeks project:

The first 2 years of the project are covered in this book:


The London 2012 Olympics are now officially open, this camera was made in the USSR in the late 1970s, a special edition was made to mark the 1980 Olympics which were held in Moscow that year. This seemed like an appropriate week to bring it out of retirement.

The film is Rollei Retro 100, developed in Rodinal 1:50 for 13 minutes at 20 degrees.

For this one I used a Hoya Dual-Color O/G filter which I recently found in the £1 rummage box in a local camera shop. The filter is half orange and half green, the orange darkens the blue sky, and the green lightens the grass.
