    While this is a very good photo, I have noticed one trend in your Iran series, if you don't mind me saying. In most photos people are photographed from the back. The undoubted talent as a portrait photographer, that we've become so accustomed with in your family series, then doesn't come across.

    Is the observation that you were not comfortable photographing people in iran a fair one?

    Sizifo,

    Good observation. I did realize the same thing once I had developed all my films. For some reason I never felt comfortable enough to engage people in portraits. Maybe it was the language or the difference in culture. To be honest I'm still trying to understand my feelings about the country.
    I did try a few times but I mostly got people making funny faces as the enjoyed the presence of a foreigner in their country. I wold have loved to photograph a lot of women over there but I knew and was also told that is is a total no-go as it is forbidden by the law for a man to approach a woman ( and to photograph...) unless they are family related or married. I was not ready to test the law shall we say...

    I do have some small regrets about the portraits but I will hopefully go back one day.

    Cheers,
    William

    It's the first thing one assumes, that due to the cultural differences, and fear of some insane law, it would be more difficult than in the west. Taking photos of strangers is a difficult issue anywhere of course.

    In any case, I was only wondering, and thought it was a fair comment. So thanks for the reply.

    Swiss Kiss

    Here's a very fun picture from a few years ago, taken in the little alpine hamlet of Gimmelwald, about 4,000 feet up, where the animals are very friendly. M4-P, Voigtlander 21/4.

    There is no truth to the rumor that the Swiss Ministry of Tourism has permanently banned me from the country as a result of this photo.

    Enjoy!

    Oops, I goofed, it was the 25/4 VC lens, which was later replaced by the 21.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    That last one and these were with a Hexar AF, which is basically a Leica, so I will post them here. I messed up the film though -- I had some TMY that was at least 5 years old and through some x-ray scanners, and I developed it in Rodinal. It is so grainy for a "cutting edge" 400 ISO that it is almost funny.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Stuart, very nice ! That Rolleiflex in your second posted photo looks very similar to my one. Is it a 3.5E ?

    Helen, pushing the SA to the limits ? Great night shot ! There might be some flare caused by the shade in the upper part, though.

    Cindy, nice to see you using the M4-P ! I think you do very well with the Epson V700 ! It was my only film-scanner for 135 and 120 for two years.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Cindy -- that first shot is really excellent. I love the look -- the combination of the lens and the film makes it look like it was taken in the 70s. It has such a lovely understated color palette.

    Gabor -- thanks for the comments. Yes, the Rollei is a 3.5E. How can you tell? It is the Xenotar version. It was slightly beat up when I bought it, but the glass was great. I had Nippon Camera Clinic service it, and put in a Maxwell screen and now it works brilliantly. Currently I am letting Eva borrow it, as she loves medium format, but only has a Holga.

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Thank you Gabor and Stuart.

    Stuart, I noticed the Rollei, too. My Rollei is the reason I gave up my Nikon V scanner. It has been a little bit of a learning curve with this Epson V700, but it can handle the 120 film that the Nikon V couldn't.
    The combo of the M4P and the Canon 50 f/1.2 does have a retro look.

    Thanks, Helen. My grand daughter, actually. See what she has around her neck???? ...my G1. I couldn't get it away from her.
    Seriously, we were on a walkabout in historic Charleston. I'm glad to share my love of photography with her. She took some nice photos with it. I bought her a nice p&s for Christmas, but for some reason, she prefers the G1.

    Is not Film so Incredibly Satisfying

    (and even more so for me sometimes with its Imperfections)

    How are YOU enjoying the Nokton 1.1;
    Is it Easy to Focus ?
    Which Film Did You Use ?

    Re: How about more and more fun with Leica M? (Film)

    Helen,
    Thanks. I used Kodak BW400CN so that I could take it to a local lab.
    I find film to be so much more fun. If I ever get the scanning down, I think I will shoot more film again. The warts make it interesting, digital perfection can be boring. I think that is why I like alternative lenses on digital. They sometimes have warts, too.
    The Nokton is a very sharp lens with nice bokeh. The low-light capablility is great. I do not like the 1 meter close focusing distance. I wish I had my lux back. Will I ever learn???

    Gabor,
    Thanks.
    I have had a lot of M's over the years (M3, M6, MP, (3xM5)). This is my favorite because of the way it fits in my hand. (I did sell it to Woody at one point when I thought I would just use my Rollei for film, but Woody kindly sold it back when I realized my error.)
