my son on his wedding day
M7, tri-x, minolta 5400II
Thanks Lloyd,I gave up with this as a silver print but scanning the neg has brought this and a few of my other mistakes to light.
A couple more,much the same ,but then.....
thanks Lloyd; i had the M7 briefly to try out rangefinders anticipating getting the M8. this was probably shot with 50 lux. i still find a low keeper ratio with the rangefinder, mainly due to focus errors
Scanned from a print,Cornwall
Jim: Such aN ELEGANT Shot of your Son and the 50 Lux is Dreamy for his Wedding Day
neil: that shot of the Woman with the Updo, SEXY & Graceful bACK
IS SOOOO BEAUTIFUL
LLoyd .its a contest that they hold every year,the idea is to swim the course up and back around the pole under the water,visibility is zero;...you can see where the Japanese get their tv programme ideas.
Ok... I'm relieved. Thanks. Neil. I thought perhaps there was something worth seeing there, and having been there, I couldn't imagine. I was afraid they were looking for bog bodies.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bog_people
No,no,this is just the British at play,much more unusual
Preamble: It is generally acknowledged that I am not right in the head...
I know that spring has sprung, and shiny happy people are frolicking through beds of freshly sprouted flowers. Me? I can't stop taking B&W photos of urban decay...even though I was in Paris and Frankfurt this week, and the weather was perfect. Didn't take a single picture!
Instead, here are some pics of downtown Baltimore
I'll snap out of it soon, but in the meantime here goes....

Nice series, Scott. Hey, Spring is no impediment to art!
M3 with DR 'cron. 100tmx @ 400ISO D76 13.5 minutes.
Indeed! Is that a scan of a darkroom print?That's just flat beautiful!!!
Thanks, I'm a sucker for hight contrast. I used a little bit of everything in these.
#1 Neopan 400/rodinal
#3 & 4 tri-x/ D76
#5 Delta 400/Xtol
I've settled on Neopan 400 though, with either rodinal or DDX, depending on the look I am after.
FAB set Scott....My Eye Candy: shots 1,3,4
The devils spoon,a prehistoric theatre on the road to perranporth in north cornwall.Leica m4-2 with 50mm summicron ,kodak technical pan at 25asa.
thought i would sneak this one in here of my son a few years ago; shot with a contax G2, scanned from a print with the epson 700
A bit of curb talk on the seedy side of town
M7 + 28/2 Cron; TMY-2
Cheers Lloyd. I'm having a lot of fun with this new TMAX-400. Since getting the M7 about a month or so ago, my M8's have been bookends.
First scan from my "new" M6- Fomapan R with CV Heliar 50mm at f:2
B+W and developing has helped me to slow down and look at things I normally wouldn't. Like this old pond.
M3 DR 'cron 100tmx D76 ( recycled ) 7.25 minutes
I don't know Scott -- she seems to be interested in his rather long pole...heh. Nice shots though. I am sure she will come around.
Here are a few from Easter...then a draft for a photo series I am doing on dead fishies.
Great pics, but the fish looks a little overcooked .
I keep trying to convince my company to have a meeting in Iceland...we have offices in the UK, Germany, US, and Iceland is roughly halfway between. Hopefully someday it will happen.
As for the pole, well...I am hoping he is overcompensating for something

i don't think my daughter would appreciate your comment
a Creamy soft falloff behind...
The sad 'Ave of Arts' is Lovely...
heres Two ....the Pier M2/ 21 SA & Ces't Moi by Eric M4/35 cron (don't know what that blob is on the straw)
MUST BE another Lesson in Developing or old developer or Film that was x rayed.....
blob looks like an air bubble got on the film.
with the film in the tank, no chemicals yet: fill the tank with 68 degree water, tap the tank bottom several times with the heel of your hand to dislodge bubbles, pour out all the water, then proceed with development as ususal.
gets the tank and film to the correct temp, pre-wets the film uniformly so it will absorb developer evenly without streaking or bubbles
