Greetings to all. These were shot with an M3 with 50 Cron or 85 Nikkor on Ilford FP3 at the downtown street market 50 years ago.

I am so happy to see you posting images from your 85 summarex. I will be posting some from mine tomorrow. This is a very special lens and for me much better than the 90 APO which is certainly a wonderful piece of glass.
Let's all of us celebrate the old Leica looks
Cindy nice idea . I did add (film) in your title. Thought it would describe the thread better
Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
Tres Coooool .... Old World Charm at its best Love the Tones
Fab.... a Picturesque Lakeside with the background of Mountains looking like cut outs
love the Dancing Ray of Light
Best - H
kinok1: Did you do some photoshopping on those photos? Very high contrast, low saturation, and grainy - like beach bypass. I like the look, just curious if you played around some either in exposing, developing, or photoshop. Very different from what I've gotten from Portra 160.
CV 15mm and Portra 400NC:
(my brand new) 50 ASPH Lux and Tri-X:
Nikkor 50/1.4 and Tri-X:
Slight desaturation and a contrast boost in lightroom. I've been a lurker here on this forum for a long time. Love the people and the information. Always good. I've been shooting more and more film both personally and professionally, and a big thanks to Cindy for starting this thread!
Can non-M leicas Play? IIIG, LRM col. 50mm 'Cron C41 B&W with Alien skin
Now i have to buy a Film M, just to post some images here
@Kinok1: Your fotos are beautiful. Very stylish.
This is from a camera store in Victoria, BC, Canada in 2004. Probably M4-P and a 35/2 Summicron almost wide open, Kodak ISO 400 film converted to B&W.

John: Love the Shadows Mixed w/Light
Riccis: beautiful backdrop of Colour in your Landscape
Just SHOOT ....
Cindy: Thanks for the welcome. I've been here all along enjoying the info, chatter and photos, but haven't posted before. I took these photos when I was much younger. The market was located in downtown, Columbus, Ohio, open on Saturday only, and was quite busy. Many people rode the bus downtown to do their weekly shopping. These were taken with a Leica IIf and Elmar lenses and later, an M3.
Helen: Thank you.
More market photos circa 1960:
Thanks for looking!

Same details as above but this was taken in Scotland
p.s.Is there any chance that we could have a film section on the main menu
Cindy, thanks for starting this great thread. Really inspirational stuff all around!
D Brown, the market photos from 50 years ago are fantastic.
M6 50mm f2
Helen,this was taken with kodak tech pan (25asa)that I talked about before.
Okay, here's one from a few years back, apropo to this thread. Camera repair shop in Hanoi. M6TTL with 24mm. Fuji 400 NP color neg.
Beautiful B&W! Was the lens the uncoated 50/3.5 Elmar?I took these photos when I was much younger.
d. brown : another GREAT set
bigfeet: Cool Bikes
charlesphoto: Would love to get lost in that shop
Neil: Love the Tones and just the overall minimal composition in your shots....
I didn't see FREESTYLE selling the Kodak tech pan /25 so till looking for it
Wow! I just dropped by this thread and there are some great photos. Thanks for posting and please keep them coming.
Helen: You live in a rough neighborhood! Bizarre and fun. Nice shot.
Taken somewhere near Hastings I think,standard lens.
Guy,Jack!!!!!!!any chance of an analogue section on the main menu??
Taken at Crufts a good few years ago,Ive cropped and straightenedthis just to show willing and to try and loosen up a little over these things.
Lots of lovely shots - the charm is certainly there.
I had an M6ttl for a few short weeks in 2006 (until the M8 came along). Here are one or two results:
I can't honestly remember which film I was using, but I think they were all shot with the 50 'cron or 90 f2.8
I haven't shot a frame of film since, and despite the attractions . . . I'm not intending to!
Just this guy you know

D.Brown,wellcome and what a great set of pictures,beautifully printed.Do you still use film or have you moved over to digital?
Leica M4-2 50mm f2 Tri-X
p.s.How about a permanent Analogue section on the main menu??????????
Here are a couple from 1972, when I was a student in Boston. Both M2, DR Summicron, Tri-X.

Just Blows my mind this whole M /Film Series...Superb
Marc , I simply ADORE the Woman holding a shoe, with that wild hat & glasses....I'll probanly go that direction in my Old Age
and the Beauty & simplicity of the Door w/the milk bottles ...Lovely
Neil, Wht is that ...in Film it looks so Charming...like a victorian Toy
Peter, The shot of the Homeless (?) man is Priceless
WHO NEEDS DIGITAL is right
I'm in Heaven !!
That lady was shot in Miami at a flea market ... she is a notoriously eccentric "semi-bag lady" with excellent taste for the cast-offs of others. Something we all may become if the ecomony sinks any further It was a M6 with a 21/2.8 pre-ASPH held clandestinely at chest level using hyper-focal distance focusing.
The milk bottles were shot years ago in London, I think it was done with a Leica CL with the CL90/4 ... a terrific little lens BTW.
Wouldnt it be nice to have a section for analogue cameras on the main menu where owners of other makes could join in,hope theyll join in any way,but a bit of pressure from everyone and maybe this could be a little more permanent.
Helen,with your wonderful enthusiasm Im sure you can bend Jack and Guys collective arm.
The toy in the photo was made by me as the last in what was a series of images,if I can find the rest Ill print them and show the series and you can make up your own mind.
