    Anthony, Nice.
    Maggie, I am enjoying looking into a slice of your family's past. These photos are great. You have a treasure here.

    Thanks, Cindy! I've really been enjoying unearthing my old negatives and sprucing them up. Some of them were treated about as well as one of Michael Vick's dogs, if you know what I mean. Scratch city.

    Here's on from my Canonet that I just finished restoring:

    Mr. Mashek At His Desk, Oakland, NE, 1979


    Not a perfect retouch job, but man, Photoshop sure beats those little brushes! I don't think I would have even tried to restore that back in the wet print days.

    Thanks all for the love.

    I am having a hard time keep up with the thread.

    A question for Maggie. Did you use any filter with the HIE shooting indoor? I have some in the freezer. In the next couple weeks, I am going to take them out. I totally forgot about them.

    I always used the deep red filter with the HIE, IIRC. It's been a long time, but I think so, you know?

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    I've been musing about getting an F6. I have a lot of Nikon glass; so, why not? These were with a Nikkormat and are from the early 1970's. I'm trying to get the measure of the V750 and old negs. Tri-X Pan (which isn't in Silverfast's Negafix?). Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt

    Anthony: Nicely done. I like the heavy shadow at the bottom.Is that a shrine? I also see a camera with a cross through it!

    Maggie: How in the H do you remember all of those people's names? Very impressive feat, and, nice photos. Why are the chairs on the desks and what did Mr. Mashek teach?

    My negatives resided in shoeboxes until about a year ago. Michael Vick's dogs had also passed my way.

    Professional: Nice work!

    All: Why are there no women posting in the Nikon Forum? I went through an old thread and saw Maggie and Cindy there.

    Cheers, Matt

    Thanks, Matt! Most of the folks in the photos have been family and I grew up in a very small town, so we knew everyone in school. My class was the largest to ever graduate from Oakland-Craig HS and we had all of fifty-two kids!

    Mr. Mashek taught math and chemistry and was my favorite teacher. I'm a big science fiction fan and he turned me on to a lot of great books. He was also a very funny guy and class was both fun and tough. I loved him. (My sister, however absolutely hated him and my dad even went and threatened the guy when Sue was failing geometry- she's the youngest and can do no wrong and I'm the oldest and can do no right...)

    The chairs were probably up on the table because class had either not started yet for the day or it was the last period of the day; we put the chairs up so the custodians could clean the floors after school.

    I don't post in the Nikon forum because the only Nikon I have is my F3! (Which, BTW is a great camera and would be a great choice for a film SLR- they're pretty cheap now and rugged as all hell.)

    Maggie: I'm not sure that I have any photos from my high school years. It would be interesting to see some of that again. Strangely enough, the high school that i went to is about seven blocks from where we live now!

    Nice scanning and photos. Hammering a Dodge and Zombie are very cool.
    I'm probably going to wait on the film Nikon and see what's the next gen of Nikon FX's. Cheers, Matt

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Here's a grainy self-portrait from about 1972-3. Nikkormat and Tri-X Pan.

    I left the uneven film edge to show that I don't crop film (I just read that in a book; actually, I was supposed to leave the sides like in a contact print)! Didn't straighten it either; although that was a really old house. Maybe it is straight? Cheers, Matt

    "Don't shoot, I'm just the piano player!" "Too late, self." That photo would make a great album cover. The piano is fantastic and you've got a seriously badass/Beethoven look going on there!

    My Nikon scanner only shows the edges of frames- I get white bands on the top and the bottom, so I can't duplicate the filed-out negative carrier look that all of my wet prints have. (Except the ones I cropped! )

    For me, it's the reactions in the crowd that are the real subject of the photos.

    Great SP, Matt. What's ironic is that we had very similar hair at the time. (Actually, I was in the Marines in 72-73, so it was very short right then, but once I was out...)

    Lloyd: I got out in 1971. I'm guessing 72-73; but, that entire decade's a blur!

    Yeah, I know about the blur. (I was in from Feb. 1970 to late July of 1973.)

    Early 1970's. Nikkormat with Tri-X Pan. I've been working on scanning these two images. So far this is my best effort. These guys are sitting in the un-renovated Pike Place Market. Probably should have made their tones similar (just noticed!). Cheers, Matt

    This is a great shot, Matt. And the truth is, if you hadn't said it was from the early 70s, I would have thought it one from your more recent Pike's Place Market collection.

    Yeah, there are beaches alongside reservoirs. Dam a creek, pour some sand next to it, viola: BEACH!

    Lloyd: Thanks. The thing is these guys wouldn't be hanging around the market. Like most major cities, we've "cleaned up" and gentrified the old, affordable, areas of downtown. They'd be out somewhere in a home, or a cheaper neighborhood away from downtown. BTW, I just bought a film nikon (Steve inspired me to buy!). I've got all of those lenses; so, why not. Cheers, Matt

    Here's another Pike Place Market photo from the early 70's that I just scanned. Potatoes are 3 lbs. for 25 cents. Nikkormat and Tri-X. The VP750 did an excellent job of cleaning up scratches/etc. Cheers, Matt

    Steve: Thanks. I love the camaraderie that these two guys appear to have. He does have a distinctive schnoz! I think I did score a used F6. It was supposed to ship ON; but, it's on "hold"? Hope they didn't sell me something they didn't have. Cheers, Matt

    Maggie: Thanks. Maybe "ugly apples" because it's a large yellow apple with red streaks? I'm going to try scanning/reprocessing some of those that I posted earlier. I think i'm getting better at it. Cheers, Matt.

    Hey, congrats (hope the "hold" is over soon). Yes, good logic, no reason not to get one. I look forward to seeing your results.

    I have a couple of film Nikons (though not the F6), need to dust 'em off, I'm thinking.

    Time to defend the honor of the mighty F3, I reckon!

    Some more shots from my archive:

    Bathtub, Minneapolis, MN, 1987


    Dad In The Fairway, Fremont, NE, 1989


    Rio Verde Mom, Rio Verde, AZ, January, 1987


    Rio Verde Dad, Rio Verde, AZ, January, 1987


    F3HP and Nikkor 28/2.8; the first first on is Tri-X, the second T-Max400 and the last two are XP1.

    Good stuff, Maggie. I especially like that first one.

    I still have my F3 I bought new in 1980. Great camera (albeit under appreciated, I think.)

    Thank you, Lloyd! I've had an F3 since 1985, and the current one since 1987, when my first one was stolen by my then-landlord, the scumbag. They're one of the finest cameras ever made, I reckon. Heck, IIRC, no other camera has had as long of a production run as the F3.

    Oh, and I mislabeled the first shot- that was on XP1, not Tri-X.

    Maggie: Great photos. The F3 is clearly no slouch (in your hands). This photo's a classic! Excellent. Cheers, Matt.

    Thanks, Matt!

    I think the only weakness the F3 has is it only has one mechanical shutter speed if the batteries die. Oh, and the dumb-*** hotshoe. What was Nikon thinking?!?!?
