The Last Photo Shoot of The Beatles, August 1969

On 22nd August 1969, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison joined John Lennon at his newly purchased 72-acre estate with Yoko Ono at Tittenhurst Park in Sunninghill, Berkshire. The photo shoot — they didn’t realize would be their last — captured by photographers Ethan Russell and Monte Fresco and Beatles assistant Mal Evans, included the Fab Four, Yoko Ono, a very pregnant Linda McCarney, Apple Corps' press officer Derek Taylor, Paul McCartney's sheepdog Martha, and two donkeys Lennon and Ono kept on the property.
It was just a photo session. I wasn't there thinking, 'OK, this is the last photo session.' — Ringo Starr.

Goodbye Kodak Professional BW400CN!

It's time to say goodbye to the much-loved Kodak BW400CN, a greyscale film that could be developed using the C-41 process, just like colour print films, which made it a convenient black-and-white option for photographers with no access to a traditional darkroom. Kodak BW400CN was popular with portrait photographers and advanced amateurs after powerful black and white photos.

In an official statement confirming the discontinuation, Kodak cited "a steady decline in sales and customer usage." The company also said that the film should continue to be available in the market for up to six months or so.

Rhythm of the Rain

"Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
 Telling me just what a fool I've been
 I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
 And let me be alone again..." - The Cascades
