Who Needs Colors?

This summer, I’ve tried to carry two 35mm cameras with me when traveling. One was to be loaded with black & white, while the other was with color. On top of that, I’d try to alternate. Of course, this is mostly impossible to perfect.

It’s also potentially confusing, since it’s hard to remember which camera has which (I’ve since developed a simple system, so it’s no longer an issue).

I knew we were going to pass this line of hoppers, so I was already regretting not having at least one of the cameras loaded with color film. Nevertheless, I stopped, grabbed a couple of shots and went on with my day.

I’ve been vigilant not to take two pictures of the same thing from the same angle. Mostly, I’ve been successful. But I really wish one of them was in color.
