Fun with MF images 2021

Bit of fun this one...

Last year, I went to Sydney's Turimetta Beach for the green rocks and the sky didn't quite 'sing' (shot with Pentax 645Z). Decided to composite it with a recent shot taken from the same place, with the same lens, but Fuji GFX100S. The two files seem to play quite nicely together, don't they?

the Acros red simulation is quite delicious
on cloudy rainy days i set the camera to jpg only and always use Acros-RED...looks best on those dreary dull days

Thanks, very impressive to be honest, would have never thought this is an ooc image.

Today I took a portrait of my colleague's father, he will turn 66 soon. In the past, every now and then, we met at his house to have lunch. His house is located in a very central part of Beijing in a hutong and he has a nice small yard where we sit for an hour or two and talk and eat what he cooked for us.
My colleague asked me to take his picture today and who am I to say no? Even though portraits are not my specialty.
I brought my Leica M10M with V4 noct and my beloved Contax645, 80F2 with the P65+ / Image taken at F4

The M10M images turned out horribly due to user error, but the C645 images did really shine, even though I took those images at Iso200.

I am starting to fall in love with the Contax system again.

Not my usual style of image, but I had to get out today to record the final trip of one of Sydney's famous Manly ferries. Plying their way the seven nautical miles from Circular Quay (in the centre of Sydney) to Manly wharf (on the city's Northern Beaches), the ferry is one of the historic sights people come to see and enjoy. The current vessels date back to the 80s, but they are about to be retired and replaced by smaller, soulless, modern heaps of junk! It's been very controversial, with enormous campaigns to save them; so far, two out of the four vessels are to be kept to operate weekend and special services, but they won't just be the whole, normal fleet as they were. And two of them are being retired. The Minister responsible for the decision has stood down from state politics, so I guess the decision will just stand without anyone to carry the can. Oh well!

Today was the last trip of one of the vessels, Queenscliff. An emotional occasion that attracted big crowds to watch. Here are my two sons, Archie(7) and Henry (5), watching as she departs from Manly for the very last time.

Yesterday, there were some nice Sydney storms. Hail, tornado warnings, heavy lightning activity, etc.. I headed out once work permitted (which meant I did miss out on a lot of the best stuff) but snagged this. Well, not quite this. The lightning strike wasn't quite where I wanted it to be, so some editing was involved.

Very sad. One of my go-to activities whenever I visited Sydney was to take the Manly ferry or the one that took multiple stops around the bay. The newer soulless ferries just aren’t the same. A similar thing happened in London with the Thames albeit a while ago now.

At least for now, two of these nice big ferries remain in operation, albeit in a more limited and somehow artificial way. But they are there, plying their trade between Sydney and Manly, so they must be enjoyed before an excuse is found to retire those too, by the people who 'know the price of everything and the value of nothing.'
