Because I have a lot of time now and no jobs (Corona) I started to look again in the archives.
These photos were taken for a food magazine in the 1990’s with my Hasselblad 500CM, Distagon CF 50mm and Kodak EPP
“Scanned“ with Panasonic S1 and Sigma Art 105mm macro on a small led light box.

Ydo those are excellent photos! I haven't seen images like those in a very long time.:):):)

Thanks for sharing and I am looking forward to more of your archived images being posted!

Waiting for a freshly processed roll of Washi-120 to dry.​

My Ilford multigrade paper developer is again nearly exhausted just from sitting. Sigh.
But I think there are maybe two or three decent exposures on this roll to play with. :D

Aaaah, how many times have I sweated up (and careened down) this very hill on my bike. I never view the hill from this perspective (only from the road), but if I recall correctly, this is where it gets steep. Thanks for sharing this lovely image!

P.S. Are those bisected people at the right-hand edge of the image?

Haha, me too! I come from Moraga, so it's a fun downhill sprint on the way home.

And good eye--yes, there were a couple of cyclists taking a break chatting there while I was taking the picture. I asked them to back up a bit, but not quite enough apparently 😄

If you drive here, you can hike up the fire road for a bit. They've done some restoration work on the trail recently to combat erosion.

Gawds, every time I see photos from a Plaubel Makina I want one again. LOL! I've never had one, they've always seemed just a hair too pricey for the very occasional use I'd put them to, but they always seem to make beautiful photographs!

They are nice and I've owned and sold many times. The Mamiya 6 and 7 are on par and that's the main reason I've not gotten back with Plaubel. Those tiny Mamiya lenses are fantastic, almost Leica-like.

Last year I sent a bunch of film images from the 90s to Digital Silver Imaging to get scanned on a Hasselblad Flextight scanner. Finally getting a chance to go through some of them.

Two more from the same roll. Same process.

Singapore modern high rise living, and the old school high rise in the city. The first image is the fairly new apartment block at Ghim Moh Link. And the lower one is the rear facade of People's Park Complex, the oldest high rise shopping and residential mall in Singapore. Taken from Pearl's Hill former Police Barracks.
