This challenge made me think of some experiments I did in the 1980s. I was using a high speed film, Scotch Chrome 1000 with various soft focus and diffusion filters.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Magenta Rose.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Magenta Rose.

This photo dates back to the 1980s. I was experimenting with a grainy, high speed film and soft focus filters. The film was Scotch Chrome 1000, as the name suggests it was 1000 ASA.

I added more grain to this edit of the shot before adding a film type border with Snapseed.

Spirit of a Butterfly.

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is ‘Beautiful Spirits of the Natural World.’

I was considering various nature images, completely forgetting a series of photos from the mid 1980s. It was only when checking out a different image I was considering that I remembered the series. I was photographing a variety of nature subjects using Scotch Chrome 1000 slide film for its grain in combination with soft focus or diffusion filters.

The photo shows a Brimstone Butterfly feeding on Buddleia taken using a soft focus filter. Buddleia is also known as the Butterfly Bush.
