Taylor Main Street Car Show

If you read my blog with any regularity you know I love car shows. Recently the city of Taylor held its annual Main Street Car Show. It was a beautiful Autumn day that had just a bit of a nip in the air from a passing cold front. It can still be very warm in the afternoon in late October and it was refreshing to be able to wander amongst the cars without breaking a sweat. 

I wandered around with a minimal camera setup - a pocketable little point and shoot film camera and my trusty X100F. While I love taking pictures of cars, I'm not fond of lugging around a heavy bag of gear these days. I find I enjoy myself more with my simple X100F over a camera body with an assortment of lens. The point and shoot film camera is just for fun. I like to shoot a roll or two of film from time to time, especially at events like these. I guess being around all the classic cars stirs up those feelings of nostalgia.


Film images were taken with an Olympus XA2 point and shoot camera using Svema  125 color film. The color you get from this film is interesting and different from any other color film I've tried. Being color blind (not completely) that's about all I can say about it. I'm not sure how accurate the rendering is but it seems to have a vintage feel to me, which works well for the subject matter.


All digital images were taken with my Fujifilm X100F using the in-camera Acros film simulation. These are only lightly adjusted for contrast. I love the X100F for being able to deliver a filmic look pretty much straight out of camera.
