Early fast film

Early fast film
When colour films rated 1600 first became popular, at least in my

world, in the mid-1980s, I was very disappointed with them. They were

so grainy that I thought they were useless. But after three decades

of deliberately using increasingly grainy and blotchy film, I look

back at my negatives on those fast films with admiration. This picture

is from a roll of Fuji HR1600 shot in the summer of 1986. My two

nephews were horsing around in their driveway with their friend (the

one with the tripod leg). Their father had just bought a sporty red

car (he didn't keep it long).

This was in my Minolta X370 and I think I was using my first long

lens, a zoom of 85-200mm (or so).
