There Used to Be a Railway Here...
...and it was called the Downtown Historic Railway.
Some "Ektachrome Dreaming" on a cold winter night.
It seems Kodak does not want us to forget that they remain
on target for re-introducing a new Ektachrome slide film in 2018.
That prompted me to revisit a set of Ektachrome-200 slides shot on a
perfect September afternoon in 1999 on Granville Island, Vancouver, B.C.
The lovely weather provided many opportunities to shoot a number of Ektachrome stocks, including
also 100-S, 100SW, and 100VS, and to enjoy each Ekta-version's attractive palette in viewing my slides.
On this particular afternoon, No. 1207, a wooden sided interurban car built in 1905, was rumbling along
its scenic right of way on Granville Island, delighting its passengers with its sounds and open window charm.
This Ektachrome moment, receiving its first exposure, was shot on E-200 in my
Canon EOS-1, through a Tamron 28-200mm LD AF lens wearing a polarizer.
Presented now in gleeful anticipation of once again loading some "new" Ektachrome in a camera or two.

Adele Oliver 26/01/2018 21:29I recognize this one, Steve :-))) It was fun when they re-opened a small
stretch of railline to Granville Island, and one could ride back and forth for
free .... she stands once again unused in the shed - sadly - Burnaby Lake
a beautiful place where I cycle to fairly often ...
