KHC,Maggie & Tareq...Outstanding Work!!!
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'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
Long gone thrift store near the Pike Place Market
Pioneer Square, original Skid Road District, 1st & Yesler looking South
1st Ave. near the Pike Place Market.
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.
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.)
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

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
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! )
That first beach one is really great Maggie! Great expression and I like the composition with the glasses, reflection and other person to the left...
Wow, you guys are strolling down memory lane! I love the "old" stuff! If i ever unbox my epson 750 that ive had for 3 weeks i'll join in!
Matt....That Shot Is Rolling Stone Magazine, Rock Star Material!
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

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
Matt, I Too Hope Your F6 comes Through. Big Congrats!
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.
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.
