Travel Light
30th October 2010
I love travelling light. So here is the stuff I took on the last trip to Yamagata.

From the upper left corner, clockwise.
Distagon 50mm, Hasselblad 500CM with Sonnar 150mm, Sonnar 250mm, A12 back, pouch for colour film, light meter, Nikon FM with 55mm micro, camera case for Ricoh GRD3 (empty because I used GRD3 to take this photo), pouch for BW film, Planar 80mm.

After I took this photo, I decided to leave 150mm at home, so it was even lighter!!!
Short trip to Yamagata
28th October 2010
先週(22日から24日)、山形へ小旅行へ行ってきました。前々から一度、立石寺(山寺)、銀山温泉、羽黒山などを訪れたいと思っており、ちょうど金曜日が、息子の小学校が休校だったので、3連休を利用してまわってきました。まだ紅葉には早かったようですが、3日とも天気に恵まれ快適に旅行することができました。モノクロ、カラーそれぞれ4本づつ撮影しましたが、まだ、現像は手付かずです・・・ここ最近はHalf Tank Methodで現像してますので、一気に2本づつ現像できず、時間がかかります。

Last week (from 22nd to 24th), we went to Yamagata. As I have always wanted to visit Rissyakuji temple (Yamadera), Ginzan onsen (hot spring), Mount. Haguro, etc. in Yamagata, and my son's school was closed on 22nd (Friday), we decided to spend that day plus the weekend to visit all those places. We were so lucky to have beautiful weather there and I used four rolls of BW and colour film. It might take quite a long time to finish developing all the films, because I use the "half-tank method" these days.
