Two more winter images with the Kowa Six, this time with Kodak’s Porta 400 print film. ¬†We didn’t really get our snow until later in the season. Just cold and bare ground. Nothing particularly interesting about either photo to me except, again, the advantages of medium-format photography when it comes to the quality of the image.

The Kowa Six’s 6×6 format shows off the depth of color that Fujifilm’s Velvia 100 brings to the image. This was shot with Kowa’s older camera — designed similar to the Hasselblad, but with a fixed film chamber built into the body. At 4 pounds-plus, not well suited for handheld photography on the bikepath. I love the big viewfinder, which seems brighter than my YashicaMat or Zeiss Ikoflex TLRs.

There’s no shortage of activism on display in Vermont, especially during the political season.
