There is so much wonderful work in this thread I can't even possibly begin to praise it enough. Thank you folks for sharing it!!!
Thanks Cindy, you would probably recognize the camera I used for the first one!
For reasons I don't quite understand, I bought myself a 55 year old Rolleiflex C for Christmas.....

Have fun and btw: great shots
+2, those XPan shots are amazing
Thank's Cindy, I suspect that it will be a struggle for me as well but we will see how it goes. It was an impulse buy, based on my current addition to MF, 6x6, and Zeiss Planar's. You never know until you try! I hope it works out because this thing is just insanely small and the shutter is virtually silent.
My Rollei was a big 2.8F TLR. It just didn't seem intimate enough. I'd love to see a picture of the Rollei C. I have a Rollei 35S scale focus that I still use.
Speaking of small, I just got my little Leica iiig back from a CLA. She also got a new red "coat".

I LOVE all the shots you people are posting - and for Christmas I am going to reload my XPan - thanks for keeping it 'real'...everyone
I'm going to start where i left off a week ago.
Scott: "Bowlegged" (I had to study it a bit); "Picnic" (very inviting, as long as no one's "cut bait" on the table); and "401" (nice reflection; feels like nowhere). Very eclectic set.
Scott: Exceptional B & W's! Ditto to what Cindy said.
Scott: The "chevrolet" is extremely well done. Beautiful color, nice snowflakes and street lamps, in the second. The dark area at lower left really pushes you into the photo.
Scott: Why not? Great stark scene. Your photos sometimes bring "nothing" to life (the bus interior), and sometimes, make "nothing" even deader (park bench). The bus seems populated, while the park is lifeless. Warm and cold tones?
Claire: You're "kicking butt" with your "new best friend"! I can see George and Paul and it probably says that the Beatles are now on iTunes. Awesome vertical.
Cindy: Cool camera. Where did it go for the spa treatment? Is that water a little higher now?
Scott: Excellent composition using light and shadow definition.
William: Like a watercolor.
Scott: Holga and Hassy. Nice comparative set of photos.
Happy holidays to everyone. Cheers, Matt
More from my increasingly distant past.

Thanks for looking. More from my misbegotten youth.

+1, Matt those are sensational
A couple of homeless guys posing for me. We had a nice talk for a few minutes - funny how they were more enthused about the holidays than I am for some reason....not sure what that says about me....but I did walk away feeling better about things...
BTW I think the Holga did pretty well here!
Happy Holidays everyone!

Amazing pictures Matt, they have a great dynamic.
Scott the Holga did well, but so did you.
Cool picture of these two guys.
Thank you, Steve. It is amazing how much smaller the Barnacks are than the Leica M's, but the iiig is still heavy and well-built. The iiig actually came out after the M3 was introduced. Mine is from 1956/1957.
Matt, Youxin Ye did the CLA. He also put the "red dress" on it. I bought the skin from cameraleather.com.
Cindy, Oliver, congrats, those cameras look incredible
Mike, nice photos, looks like the new camera suits you!
(I, too, am the guy with the camera at Christmas)
