While making some boring brick wall tests to see whether a new 150mm lens would work out for me, I spied this growing on my neighbour's house wall.

Schneider-Kreuznach Componon-S 150mm f/5.6 on my F-Universalis with GFX 100S. As always, I'm delighted to be able to put the plane of focus where I want!

This sculpture was crafted by the Coexistence Collective, a community of indigenous Indian artisans spanning four tribes: Bettakurumba, Paniya, Kattunayakan, and Soliga. Each elephant was modeled after a real life elephant and made using dried Lantana Camara, an invasive weed that threatens protected areas in India.
There are over 50 of them on the cliff walk in Newport Rhode Island arranged as a migration

Was over at The Arts House, the former Parliament building for Singapore, now an arts venue, for the opening of the Cartier Trinity 100 Exhibition. This is a specially curated exhibition to celebrate Cartier's Trinity. It premiered in Shanghai last week, and in Singapore this week as the second stop.

Phase One XT/IQ4150/Rodenstock HR Digaron-S 23mm F5.6. With a quick 5 min edit.

If you can, try it with the appropriate CF – when I bought it I was surprised at the strong vignetting of this lens ... the CF is a must almost on it

Tillamook Lighthouse from Ecola State Park in northern Oregon near Cannon Beach and Seaside has been standing tall since 1881. Nicknamed Terrible Tilly for all the tragedy it has been a part of going all the back to its pre-construction when a master mason surveying the location was swept out to sea. It was formally closed in 1951, but is still very much a part of the landscape today.

But make sure your dealer will take it back if you decide not to keep it. I tried the CF with my first 23 when I started shooting a tech camera with an Alpa STC, and I used it occasionally. By the time I got to my third 23 (don’t ask) on the XT, I found myself never using the CF. Whether the C1 lens profile is just better at correcting for the 23 than it once was, or I simply like the curve of the falloff, I don’t know. You may love the CF. Only way to find out is to try it.

You like it? I find it has the strongest vignetting of all HR lenses, but ofc with IQ4 and XT it should be easy enough to fix. CF just allows you to keep more consistent noise floor across the frame as the correction especially in dark corners is quite the lift

I pulled out my sweet old Voigtländer Perkeo II yesterday and loaded it up with a roll of Washi film ... orthochromatic emulsion on thin Japanese rice paper for those unfamiliar. Another adventure to enjoy.

Sadly, I noted that my Perkeo II has developed a fault: the mechanical frame counter has the red "end of roll" flag covering the frame number and it doesn't seem to want to go away. Luckily, the frame limiter and shutter cocking, shutter release, and all the shutter and such seem to be working fine, and I can peek at the film backing if I forget what frame I'm on, just look for the number. But ugh, another camera off to service in a week or three.

Happily, or maybe abashedly, there are plenty more to use while the current five out for service are being tended to, and that won't change when I send the Perkeo II out... 🤪

I don’t have a problem with the vignetting while shooting with no movements. I don’t have the CF. And the 23 has a rather small IC, and anything more than a 2mm shift either on X or Y will cause heavy vignetting. I think its ok with zero shift
