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

    I like these a lot more than the betterlight images. I don't know why yet, but I'm thinking on it. The aspect ratio is spot on, too; it makes me think of individual pool lanes as relating to your vision and taking visual "laps" through the space.

    edit: on that note, betterlight scans--the literal act of scanning--is rather reminiscent of laps and the motion of water itself. still like these more, though--maybe it's the almost saccharine feel of the soft focus in *this* environment that doesn't work for me as well. almost too obvious: the soft focus in the "hard" area. dunno. either way, you're the still bee's knees and I dig all of your work--i'm talking in degrees of awesome here :-)

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

    i like this format a lot.. i've dreamed of an xpan size/format digital rangefinder (full size sensor). The aspect ratio is just about perfect for pano, and I prefer the flat pano, rather than the sweeping kind you get with the Betterlight pano adapter.

    I took some Kodachrome at the same time with the xpan.. willl be interesting to compare the two when i get them back

    a few more from the shoot

    Just finished scanning some T400 CN shot last winter with the Contax G2 and 45mm Planar. I liked the way the warm/neutral split tone worked on this image - almost like the actual colors.

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

    Jim: Nice images. The aspect ratio does work very well. The second and third sets are also terrific. You have some very cool gear and you use it well.

    Carl: Beautiful B & W. The tonality's perfect for the subject.

    Scott: These are great images. The last night photo's excellent!

    Tokengirl: Those are uniquely wonderful photos. The curvature distortion make them seem unworldly. Exposure looks right on.

    Cheers, Matt

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

    I have to share these and this seems like the closest fit. Film (well actually a "print" on a glass plate) and certainly not taken with a Leica M.

    In the late 70's I had a part-time job as a garbage man at an institution of higher learning. These were supposed to be thrown away; but, I took a small box home. They've been sitting in the box for 30 years. The other day, I scanned a few. They all date from around 1900. One was dated 1888.

    What a wonderful collection of old photos. I wonder how far back this Alaskan glacier has receded since this photo was taken.

    Carl: Serendipity, and a little theft. I'm wondering that too. I've got a friend who's been up there a lot. There' seven big "tidewater" glaciers in AK and all are receding. Maybe, he recognizes this one. You know the AK tourist slogan: "See Alaska while it's still here".

    Matt,
    No, this was in Half Moon Bay, California.
    The couple were just out for a ride and happened to park across from the local rag, (The Half Moon Bay Review)
    The reporter came out to get their story.
    It caught my eye as my wife and I were there for my birthday, which is August 13 and the car was #13
    Quite a nice thing to see.
    Now, if he would have given me the car, it would have made the day complete.
    No Such Luck

    +1. Great image. I agree with Matt, it does almost look natural... sort of cave-like.

    A few more lantern slides.

    "Walrus among the ice floes in Bering Sea, Nome"


    "Barkantine Queen"
    Barkentine \Bark"en*tine\, n. [See Bark, n., a vessel.]
    (Naut.) A threemasted vessel, having the foremast square-rigged, and the others schooner-rigged.



    Downtown Seattle, probably around 1906 - 1909, just after the San Francisco Earthquake. There's a sign, second on the right, that identifies the "Seattle Agency of the The San Francisco Examiner Chronicle". The Examiner's offices were destroyed in the earthquake and for a while they brought out joint editions with the Chronicle.


    This must be the original gate to Woodland Park (designed by the Olmsted Brothers; now our Zoo); probably taken around 1902

    A ship with its masts broken down "wintering" in the ice.

    Jim: They're a great find. I googled "alt-process" prints. Pretty fascinating range of processes. It seems that a lantern slide might fit that definition. It's essentially a contact print made on to a treated glass plate (or sometimes a camera projection, or, something like that).

    Another hot 90+ day so I stayed inside and scanned some old Tech Pan negatives taken in the winter about 30 yrs ago. Nice cooling effect

    Big Icicles

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

    Carl: These are very nice. There's something almost therapeutic about scanning old negatives. I esp. like the tracery detail in the second one. Without the vegetation as a clue to scale, it could be an aerial of an Arctic landscape. The pressure lines around the rocks are neat.

    Cheers, Matt

    Thanks Matt and yes, it was very theraputic working with these old negs. They are quite thin, but scanned easily and much easier to print with my inkjet than the wet prints I made years ago.

    Great shot. How do you focus the 6x12?
