Okay, let's see your stuff with any other camera, any format, any film, done anytime ... as long as it isn't a Leica M (it has it's own thread ;))

Cool shoes :thumbup:

Love the tonal range of the big format film. Easy to scan that size film on a flatbed like the 750 huh?

here is a color shot: from 35mm slide film (ektachrome?) shot with my first autofocus nikon and the stock zoom lens in 1991. S canned with the Minolta 5400II. location is about 17,000 ft in Nepal on the way to the Everest base camp. that peak might be Ama Dablam, Everest is out of view to the left

Marc: that was an easy scan, just done in the 4x5 neg carrier. I use Silverfast

I LOVE shots like this Gary. This is the stuff that's disappearing. I've got one somewhere that's similar taken in Hell Michigan.

You're so right.

This diner is long gone. Every building on the block was demolished about a month after I took this photo.....eventually replaced by hi-rise luxury condos.

I used to stop here on my walk to work for a cup of coffee or breakfast (in the days before I learned to love espresso). The diner was just south of downtown Minneapolis....very valuable real estate I guess.

When I learned it was going to be demolished, I asked the cook/owner if I could come back and take some photos. When I showed up the next day with my 4x5 and a big tripod....I could see it wasn't what he was expecting. Of the half dozen exposures I made, this is the only one I really liked.

I made a print of this image last year which was selected for the annual Alaska Rarefied Light Photography exhibit. I feel like it's one of the best images I've ever been lucky enough to capture.

One of my more recent images.....which was included in the 2008 Alaska Rarefied Light photography exhibit.

This just goes to show that even the most uninteresting image can spark some juror's interest. I honestly thought this would be the LAST image/print anyone would find of merit (besides myself, of course....but then, I really LIKE taking photos of old machinery, vehicles, run down buildings....and other assorted junk). :thumbup:

Here's a review of the RL exhibit in last Sunday's Anchorage Daily News.

http://www.adn.com/arts/story/598800.html

Believe it or not....they printed my photograph in the newspaper (with a few others). I guess this is my 5 minutes of fame! :eek:

Anchorage Skyline (and Ship Creek junk yard)
Hasselblad 501CM, 50mm Distagon (or maybe it was the 80mm Planar??)
Ilford FP4, Epson 750 scan
Print was very small (7x7 image area) on Premier Fine Art Hot Press paper (Epson 2400)
My only regret.....I should have made a bigger print! :ROTFL:
