Cactus in Winter

You don’t expect to see prickly pear cactus in winter, in Pennsylvania. I’ve photographed it along one of my walks before, but this time I had black and white film and that made all the difference.

This was one of the photos from my recent A Walk in Black and White Film. All photos were taken with Kodak 400 ISO black and white film using my 40-year-old Pentax K1000, on one overcast winter day, January 14, 2020. I used the scans from the company that developed them just as they came off the roll of film, no adjustments at all.

  1. Cactus are such incredible plants. They can survive on so little. Great shot.
