    Thanks Steve. I probably didn't make clear enough that we actually had him put down a few years ago, but thanks for your kind thoughts. We do think of him often, and Claire's great portraits of her Weimey always remind me of Jake. He did have a very good life. Lucky dog!

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

    It's always funny to me that when I go back to shoots from years ago I find frames that were far better than the ones we originally used. A trip to Westwood Music Sunday afternoon to have my old Martin 00-17 (1948) worked on reminded me that I had photographed Lyle on the roof of their old location on Little Santa Monica Blvd. for the cover of Acoustic Guitar Magazine - sometime in the late '90's, I think.

    This is shot with T-Max100 in direct sun with a red 25A filter, developed in T-Max Developer and scanned on a Howtek 8000.

    Peter, that's an amazing photo of Lyle. He has always seemed like a relatively normal guy, all things considered. Any tales to tell?

    And how about a photo of your Martin??

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

    Thanks Scott. Hard to make this short...I was told that I had to shoot within a three block radius of Westwood Music, and after fruitless scouting, from the alleyway behind the store I saw a ladder going to the roof. On the day of the shoot, we were setting up lights, stands, sandbags, extension cords, etc. on the roof, when Lyle's publicist told me he would "never" go up there. Well I continued and shot a Polaroid of my assistant and took it inside to show Lyle. He took one look at it and said "I love it, let's go" and away we went. As I was finishing shooting, the publicist, whose name is long forgotten, was getting antsy, looking at her watch and saying we needed to quit. I told Lyle that I thought we were done and in plain view and within earshot of the publicist, he said "...shoot a couple more rolls just to make sure you've got it..." Seems he was a feeling a bit oppressed by her as well. He made sure to thank my assistant personally and by name for helping and was one of the nicest people in the music business I've ever dealt with. The common denominator that day between Lyle, Fred Walecki and myself, was Willis Alan Ramsey, whose songs Lyles was teaching to Fred in between setups.

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

    Most of the musicians I've photographed have been great to work with, but a few have been that much more fun - people like Lyle, Robert Earl Keen, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, Bonnie Raitt, Utah Phillips, John Jorgenson, etc. The worst situation was trying to shoot Cheap Trick at a Sunset Blvd hotel, and dealing with two very drunken members of The Black Crowes - so drunk they couldn't even stand up.

    Great story, Peter. I've been a fan of Lyle's for years. His live concerts are among my favorite I've ever attended. He has an easy going way about him on stage, and a very intelligent and slightly odd sense of humor that I really enjoy.

    BTW, your website is like a trip down memory lane. Great, great stuff.

    Scott - The guitar won't be back for at least a couple of weeks. I thought it just needed frets, but it also had a loose internal brace, the bridge needs re-glueing and the nut has to be re-cut and shifted the slightest amount toward the base side. It's not really that pretty of a guitar. I'm pretty sure it was one of the lowest priced models - all mahogany with no frills. But, boy, it's one sweet sounding box. My girlfriend is the musician in the family, playing professionally in at least three separate bands here in L.A. including Lisa Haley and the Zydekats. Me, I just dink around and have fun but I do enjoy a nice sounding instrument.

    More old stuff....found and scanned a few faded slides from when I first got a used 'blad. I remember jumping for rock to rock shooting it like an Instamatic. B&W conversion.

    Such great colours! How much PP was applied?

    The darkening on the left is caused by my (gloved) finger, touching the (turning) shutter speed dial...

    Thanks! Very minimal PP done on that one, just the normal touching up for dust, and a little bit of contrast.

    I love your 15mm shot, whenever I used one I could never hold the camera straight and you see the curvature of the earth...

    Another night shot




    And our first snow - probably a quarter of an inch, but enough to cause panic around here

    We just got another 2 inches during the last hour.


    Forgot to ask: What film for the night shots?

    Edit: Forget about it. Just looked at flickr
    I have some 160 NC in my stylus epic, but haven't finished the first roll yet.

    Ollil: +1! It was introduced in 1932. Do you know how old your Leica II is? You should post a picture of it.

    Scott: Another excellent night shot! I thought it snowed all of the time in Baltimore? We get 10 mile gridlocks and abandoned cars on the freeways with 2" of snow. We just got 4-6" of rain in two days; so, lots of flooding. Beats hurricanes, ice storms and tornadoes, anyway.

    Cheers, Matt

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

    I've been scanning and processing down memory lane again. Here's a series from the early 1970's. My friend, Dianne, taken with a Nikkormat and Kodak Tri-X Pan. I posted one of these earlier, but, I've re-worked it. Hard to get the contrast right and have her face show well. Also, lots of spots and scratches on the negs. Cheers, Matt

    Thanks Matt,

    Mine is one from the first batch.
    Serial number is #86685 with the matching Elmar #99779.
    I bought it from hulk on the classified here.

    Ain't got a decent shot of it, but this may work:

    I also got a IIIc, converted to IIIf (the mysterious black dial IIIf with self timer ) in the mail yesterday, but that will be a Christmas present for me.


    I like those old portraits.
    They have there own style, which can't be artificially created.


    Regards

    Oliver: That camera's very cool! Merry Christmas to you! That's a great little camera, too.

    BTW: that same book is sitting on my coffee table about 4' from me. Thanks about the portraits. Part of me thinks that i could get more out of film if i was back in the darkroom.

    Cheers, Matt

    Scott, The highway photos are amazing. I really like the first snow photo with the graffiti in the background.

    OlliL, I'm so glad to see you posting from your Barnack. Mine is coming back later this week. I had to send it off for a CLA (and a new red skin was applied.) I can't wait to use it again. I just love the look that you achieved.

    Such great colours! How much PP was applied?


    Another one from the Leica II, with the Super-Wide Heliar 15mm

    Thanks Matt and Cindy!


    The IIIf will get a CLA in January, as it has a dim rangefinder.
    It will be my camera to use and the II is the collectors item

    Just kidding, I use all my cameras, because that's what they were made for and in my opinion, a Barnack is great to handle.
