I got this little guy at Bonorong Wildlife Park in Brighton, Tasmania on the 22nd of May 2012.
There are many wallabies running free within the wildlife park and they are not afraid of humans, however they are very difficult to photograph as they generally try to sniff the camera to see if it is food or not!
I got this shot with my beloved Rolleicord V twin lens reflex camera which dates from 1954 and still takes lovely photographs through its Xenar lens!
The negatives are 6×6cm taken on 120 size roll film.
The film used for this shot was Fuji Superia 100, from an old stock I obtained which had been refrigerated since fresh. I am quite happy with the results from it!
I scanned this image on a Kodak Professional PCD 4050 film scanner and then did dust spotting, levels adjustments etc in Photoshop CS3. No other processing has been done.
Edit…I originally titled this as being a Bennet’s Wallaby, but I have been reliably informed (by one of the keepers at Bonorong no less!) that it is actually a Forester Kangaroo, a slightly larger and less common species.
Apologies to macropods everywhere!
