A few from an old Minolta SRT-101 I bought from a colleague. I bought it sight unseen via the mail. When I got it it was super-grungy (and even after a lot of cleaning, it still is). It was interesting to shoot this old SLR, because it told me I definitely prefer (or have gotten used to) the handling/focusing of a rangefinder. Still, this camera was fun to shoot and had the cool Rokkor 58mm f/1.4 mounted.
Film is Efke 25 (my first time with the really slow stuff).
Developed in Adonal (like Rodinal), 1:100, 1hr stand.
I seem to have overexposed a lot of the shots. Half of the negs were as dense as a neutron star. I usually do much better at exposure than that, so I'm going to blame the camera and claim slow shutter speeds . Anyway, I've read around that Efke 25 is not tolerant of overexposure, so it was a perfect storm. These were some of the few I could save.
Thanks! Here is one more from the series, this one is actually my favorite
And a few more in color from the same night
and a Holga from the following morning
Scott/Ollil/Carl: Excellent images! Thanks for posting. Cheers, Matt
I can relate to this - Jasmine's absolute favorite treat is the crust, a/k/a pizza bones. She turns into a complete whining slobbering idiot.
I love the fact that your props were simply put on a black surface and lit by kitchen lights.
More home cooked B&W...rescanning some negs with 9000ED and Silverfast...I'm still at the "monkey and typewriter" stage.

To be honest, no clue! I found it while walking around a reservoir I frequent, so I figured I would take it's portrait at sunset.
This thing is big enough to catch a whale, I can't imagine what someone would use it for in a freshwater reservoir??
Afterwards I released it back into the water so that it could play with all of the other artificial things floating around!

Those things are about $6 a piece, so when I find them snagged on a tree or something I take them home with me and just replace the hooks.
Claire, the Xpan photos are amazing!
I went to the Broward County Fair this afternoon and took the Fuji Klasse W loaded with a roll of Ektar. After scanning the negatives, I went crazy in Lightroom to get ore of a cartoonish effect.
I don't usually crop, but this one just worked better square:
And after eating all that Fried-Crap-On-A-Stick, you'll be needing these:
Beautiful Xpan photos, Claire, and really cool photos from the country fair!

Your body of work is in the top 3 of my all time favorite's.
I just wish I could remember who the other two were.
Thanks all of you for the kind words. I'm looking forward to the Miami-Dade County Fair, which is much bigger and better attended. 109 days and counting.
Wow! Great shots Scott. Especially like those first two.
Thanks all, here are a few more

Scott, that last one if my favourite so far.
Since, I was last here, Scott and Claire have posted some amazing images! It's a constant joy to see the diversity that's created with a camera and film. Thank you!
