The Konica 3200 was one of the fastest color negative films ever made. ISO 3200 might sound lame these days when sensors are advertised with speeds reaching into the millions, but back in the 1990s, this was a revelation and gave ample opportunity to experiment.


Of course, we were talking about grain, while today it is called noise.


One of the unconventional uses of these high speed films was to take portraits at parties when it was getting dark and the usually shy victims were getting relaxed and more tolerant towards photographic intrusion.


I am normally hesitant to post pictures of friends because these are, well, private in the sense that they are not of general interest.


But friendships become memories


and posts like these messages in a bottle, to be lost or to be found.
