Some Native Japanese Film for a Native Haitian

Yesterday I spent the afternoon in Chicago, visiting a friend who is a native Haitian. Jeff moved to the United States over 20 years ago, but still has family in Haiti, including 2 uncles, one aunt, and several cousins. Last week, after the horrific earthquake that centered around Port au Prince, Jeff discovered that his uncles and cousins were left homeless, but safe. His Aunt Mona, however, an 80 year-old missionary whose home was right in the middle of the devestation, was unaccounted for. We all prayed.

Yesterday, Jeff received a phone call from one of his cousins. Aunt Mona was found alive and well. Praise God!

These two pictures of Jeff were taken during our visit, and were shot with my Leica MP, Voigtlander Color-Skopar 25/4 lens, and Fuji NATURA 1600 film. This film was only marketed in Japan. I was able to get hold of several rolls last year.
