This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Fuzzy.
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.
A Fuschia flower.

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.
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.
This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is “The Look of Love” which made me think of roses, chocolates and this photo. Taken in the mid 1980s using a soft focus filter on the lens and a little known film, Scotch Chrome 1000.
