Isolation Photo Project : Day 134 : Raksha Bandhan

Today is Raksha Bandhan.

If you're (still) into film photography, Jim Grey has put together a long list of film photography blogs you'll want to follow. I have a Pentax Spotmatic II and Pentax ES II loaded with Fujicolor Pro 400H and Kodak ColorPlus 200 respectively, but I won’t finish shooting the film rolls for many months. The cost of purchasing and developing these two film rolls is nearly the cost of one of the 300Mb/s 32GB SDHC UHS-II cards I recently bought. And if you're a fan of the "film look", I think there are many excellent films presets (or create your own) to help you make that look.

The expense and inflexibility of photographic films are some reasons that I abandoned 35mm films for digital over 20 years ago. Still, these websites are fun to read, and I think that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?

Celebrated on the full-moon day of the Hindu month of Sravana (July/August), this festival celebrates the love of a brother for his sister. On this day, sisters tie rakhi on the wrists of their brothers to protect them against evil influences and pray for their long life and happiness. They, in turn, give a gift which is a promise that they will protect their sisters from any harm. Within these Rakhis reside sacred feelings and well wishes. This festival is mostly celebrated in North India.

Hello, I'm Khürt, a Gen X-er residing near Princeton University in Montgomery Township, New Jersey, with a passion for aquariums, terrariums, and photography, capturing moments with digital and 35mm film cameras. I find solace in the woods through hiking, and my eclectic musical tastes span soca, Afrobeat, calypso, 1990s rap, grunge rock, and alternative genres. My tech interests are towards open-source software, Linux, UNIX, and Apple products, particularly macOS.
