FILM: Cabo Rojo lighthouse
Lens: A50 f1.7 Camera: K1000 Photo Location: Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico ISO: 400 
Posted By: ismaelg, 06-19-2012, 08:58 PM


On June 16th, for my birthday, I organized a photo-trip with friends from our local photography forum. (Among the participants was Pentax Forum's "matoqui")
This time, we went to the Cabo Rojo lighthouse in Puerto Rico.
I took my K20D as usual but I also brought my ~23-years-young K1000 with my A50mm f1.7 loaded with a roll of Kodak BW400CN black and white C-41 film.
These images have minimal post process and were carefully scanned at home.

Let me say it just one more time:

Lovely Ismael. Long live film indeed but somehow, sadly, I don't think that is going to happen.

Sorry for the late reply. I was working out of town this week.
No, I did not enter because it was closed. I heard it is deteriorating and they plan to restore it soon.
Of all places I can still get BW400CN at Walgreens.
My scanner is an old Epson 2400. Outdated but I've been experimenting a lot to get the most out of it.
I know it is hard to keep film alive but as long as I can get it... Long Live Film!
