    Something different, a cyanotye copy of 4x5 inch negative, size is ~8x10inch.
    Self coated Hanemuehle aquarell paper.
    Original negative were taken with a Wista 45D and a Schneider Repro Claron 9/210mm on Fomapan 200

    Voigtländer Perkeo II + Ilford XP2 Super
    ISO 320 @ f/8 @ 1/100
    Processing Lab-Box
    HC-110 1:49 dilution, continuous agitation, 10 min

    This young man was playing music in the parking lot of the shopping center as I arrived at the bicycle shop the other day. The music was haunting and beautiful, I stood entranced by his playing for several minutes and fished a few dollars out of my wallet. Several other folks as I stood there walked up, thanked him, and put money into the jar he had at his feet. On the jar was a photo of him with his young wife and child, with a very small note that said, "Thank you for helping. We lost our home in a fire."

    As I walked up to put my money into his jar, one of the shop clerks across the way strode out and upbraided him for "... annoying people with that music! I'm not saying the music is bad, but not everyone is going to like it. You're going to cost me business!" He was being quite the butthole. The young man said, "I'm sorry, I meant no harm." A half dozen people on the sidewalk shouted, "Leave him alone!" It was horrible.

    After the idiot clerk retreated back into the store, I walked up to young man and thanked him for his music, "You play beautifully, your music is wonderful. All these people love it. Don't let the fools get you down." He had a tear in his eye and gave me this quiet little smile and the peace sign. I asked if he minded I take a photo, and he nodded. I crossed the street to go into a store ... when I looked back, he'd left.

    A few minutes later, in the store that the clerk came out of, I saw the clerk standing there talking to his colleagues (and presumably he was their manager). "You just have to put a stop to such people, they ruin the business if you let them have their way..."

    I walked up to the group and addressed him. "Sir, I have a complaint."

    "About what?" he said in his best smarmy manager voice.

    "About the awful music you play in this store. It sounds like I'm standing in an smelly elevator. There was some beautiful music as I approached the store, I thought it was coming from the speakers in here—it's why I came in here!—but I guess not," I said back.

    I turned with my purchase and left. I saw his colleagues snickering as I walked away: he stood there open-mouthed and looking foolish.

    The photo was almost ruined because I hadn't rolled the film far enough into the camera when I loaded it ... the Perkeo does not have an index mark for the start point on the 120 roll. I lost about a quarter of the frame. Luckily there was enough left to make this photograph from the frame.

    Enjoy!

    Guadalupe River Trail follows the Guadalupe River right down through ... and under! ... San Jose. I love this view of the trail turning on its ledge next to the river as it passes under Highway 237 and also under a surface street overpass (San Fernando Avenue).


    Voigtländer Perkeo II + XP2 Super
    ISO 320 @ f/5.6 @ 1/50

    When the river is high, it can lap right at the edge of the paved trail...

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

    For the first time since January I took my Hasselblad 500C & 80mm Planar out for some fresh air yesterday. Loaded a roll of Fomapan 100 (having run out of Acros 100!) and made a quick trip to two nearby but different locations.

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

    From last week's roll of Fomapan 100, dev'd in 1:50 Rodinal for 9m 30secs (Hasselblad 500C, 80mm Planar). I rather like the tonal gradation the Fomapan/Rodinal combination gives.

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

    A few photos made with the Voigtländer Perkeo II, the second roll that I processed in the Lab-Box using HC-110 (1:49, 8 minutes @ room temperature):








    Nearly all were guesstimated exposure, f/11 @ 1/100 or similar for the outdoor shots.

    enjoy!

    Lovely work with the Hasselblad, Keith!

    My experiment ... um, mission ... to document the 10 day trip I'm on with only a Polaroid SX-70 (and an iPhone) is going very well. The camera has functioned perfectly, as has the film. I carried three packs of B&W film and one pack of color ... 32 exposures. I leave for home tomorrow: I have two exposures left.

    These are initial test shots made after acquiring a Shen Hao 6x17 Pano Magazine (SHPM).
    They were done in early morning light with a looming storm (not a lot of time).
    I will be shooting some color work in the near future and will share it here.

    A review of my experiences with the 6x17 SHPM will be posted on my website after I become comfortable using it.
    If anyone has any tips regarding operation of the SHPM, please do share.

    A really grainy film, Kodak Vericolor II, expired 1994 and exposed now.
    Camera Mamiya 645AF, 80mm lens, scanned with Plustek Opticfilm 120 and Silverfast 8.
    I would have preferred VueScan but interframe spacing is only adjustable in Silverfast.

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

    Can't remember if I posted these in this thread... apologies if I have already:

    A regatta from a couple years ago in Tennessee, there was a fog delay so I grabbed my Rolleiflex and snapped some photos. Film was very expired TMAX (400 I think) and developed in Xtol.


    Later on that afternoon we won the gold medal in a mixed 4.

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

    Very hard not to like all the photos in this thread!

    I discovered an iOS app for light metering that I hadn't seen before, and like a lot: LightMeterW. Ultra simple and easy to use, minimal features, and it works with an incident dome as well as reflected readings. I'm spending some time calibrating it against my most difficult manual metering camera, the Polaroid SLR670m ... The current SX-70 (ISO 160) film from Polaroid Originals is very short on latitude and the manual exposure settings are 1 stop increments (shutter speed only). It's very tricky to get just the right exposure for this stuff; this app is making it a bit easier.

    LightMeterW is the first metering app I've found that is actually easier to use than my Sekonic L-358, and darn near as accurate.

    The app is by David Quiles, who also did the very nice, full-featured My Light Meter Pro and f/Tools apps.

    Wonderful photo and memory Carl!

    I too was born a lefty but after a childhood move from the US west coast to the east coast, the new school system forced me to relearn how to write with my right-hand! 😡
    Of course in due time educators, etc. finally figured-out it did more harm than good and stopped forcing the switch.
    I write right-handed with a left slant (people think I write left-handed), but most everything else I do left-handed.

    Celebrate our uniqueness is what my left-handed granny use to say!

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

    Your son, Graham? I was just listening to an old album by Laurie Anderson and I see this wonderful photograph...

    "O Superman" by Laurie Anderson

    O Superman. O judge. O Mom and Dad. Mom and Dad.
    O Superman. O judge. O Mom and Dad. Mom and Dad.
    Hi. I'm not home right now. But if you want to leave a
    message, just start talking at the sound of the tone.
    Hello? This is your Mother. Are you there? Are you coming home?
    Hello? Is anybody home? Well, you don't know me,
    but I know you.
    And I've got a message to give to you.
    Here come the planes.
    So you better get ready. Ready to go.
    You can come as you are, but pay as you go. Pay as you go.
    And I said: OK. Who is this really? And the voice said:
    This is the hand, the hand that takes. This is the
    hand, the hand that takes.
    This is the hand, the hand that takes.
    Here come the planes.
    They're American planes. Made in America.
    Smoking or non-smoking?
    And the voice said: Neither snow nor rain nor gloom
    of night shall stay these couriers from the swift
    completion of their appointed rounds.
    'Cause when love is gone, there's always justice.
    And when justive is gone, there's always force.
    And when force is gone, there's always Mom. Hi Mom!
    So hold me, Mom, in your long arms. So hold me,
    Mom, in your long arms.
    In your automatic arms. Your electronic arms.
    In your arms.
    So hold me, Mom, in your long arms.
    Your petrochemical arms. Your military arms.
    In your electronic arms.

    Great photo. It brought up a lot of emotions and memories of my childhood with my brothers.

    Yep, that's my son. Occasionally, he'll hold a pose long enough for me to get a capture of him on film, but usually I have to resort to my Sony camera

    Another shot, I was using a hood on my new 50/4 that was causing some hard vignetting, which I didn't notice for a few exposures. Chalk it up to learning. Still, I kind of like the circular shape in this one:

    He's a handsome young lad; I'm sure he's a joy and a devil... All boys are, I think. I can vouch for the devil part personally; the other you'd have to ask my mom.

    I like this new photo as well. It kinda looks like a spiral galaxy seen in a field of grass! Very cool.

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

    Sinar F1 with Voigtlander Heliar 150mm f/3.5 Made in 1929
    Picture taken with f/3.5, Fomapan 400 4x5" sheet film
    Developed in Adox FX-39 II

    I searched a little bid about this lens and I find out that it costs around $90 in 1930 incl. a dial set Compur II shutter.
    A fine ounce of gold costs $21. Incredible how expensive lenses were. The standard Heliar 6" with f/4.5 were available for around $60. A lot of money as well.

    The book: The Recognitions by William Gaddis
    A brilliant story about fakes and lies, he wrote it in 1955
    In German the name of the book is, translated: the faking of the world

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

    Voigtlander Perkeo II with the Color Skopar 80mm f/3.5
    Fomapan 400 developed in Adox FX-39 II
    Voigtlander yellow filter 2x

    I like the voigtlander lenses and this Color Skopar is a gem, new computed by A.W. Tronnier in 1948 and he described it as nearly apochromatic corrected.
    One of his other lenses is much more famous, the Apo Lanthar.
    BTW: the Voigtlander lenses and cameras were made around 35 miles away from my home town.

    The problem all of this old cameras is that the film is not 100% plain, in the consequence that the pictures are sometimes less sharp partial but it gives this images a kind of its own charme.
