    Re: LX3 images.

    It's great to see this thread still going. I had an LX-5 for a while but gave it to a friend and went back to my trusty old LX-3. It just seems a better fit somehow.

    Hello All,

    I saw this in a small country church which was preparing for a wedding, and thought it might amuse the romantics among you.

    Cheers,

    Re: LX3 images.

    Hello Allo,

    Well I've been on the point of upgrading to something a little more sophisticated but...I love a bit of procrastinating...so instead I've downloaded a trial of Nik Silver Efex and it is so wonderful it's almost better than a new camera(emoticon overload)

    I've been thinking of a Fuji x100 or a Pana GX1 (time will tell)

    In the meantime I enjoyed making these.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Re: LX3 images.

    Had a bit of a disaster a couple of months ago when we managed to crack the rear LCD of the LX3. No joy in getting it fixed, but with time I have become used to it, although I do feel a twinge of pain each time I see it!.....

    There are a couple taken of a cycas as its new leads began to unfurl.

    Hi Hilton,

    That was tough luck. Doesn't seem to have affected the capability of the camera or the the photographer behind it
    I can almost hear those new leaves unfolding.
    I've tried twice to destroy my camera (once by drowning and once by hitting it hard on tarmac) but it just keeps on working!
    Here's another tree.

    Re: LX3 images.

    Hello All,

    Wooly mammoths still roamed the green fields of England when I started out in this sight seeing business using a wooden camera on a wooden tripod.

    I find it faintly miraculous that using the modern equivalent of a piece of film smaller than my little finger nail I can take a thing called an ooc Raw to make another thing called a b/w jpeg look fairly interesting, all in less than 10 minutes.

    And you say it's all done with noughts and ones.

    Very clever, Grasshopper.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Thanks, Jorgen for the double thumbs up. Much appreciated

    LX3 is a great little camera, sometimes I think there is magic inside it!!

    Here are two more.

    1st is Speed Sleeping, or Let the Train Take the Strain. 1/25 sec.
    2nd is cog wheels near the Kennet & Avon Canal.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Re: LX3 images.

    Hello All,

    Ha ha, thanks for the compliment.

    'Creative mind bender' sounds very much like a cocktail Zaphod Beeblebrox would have ordered at The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, in Douglas Adams' 1978 BBC Radio series The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Listen if you can.

    Here's an interesting pic which appears to be a colour snap but is actually a B/W toned in Nik silver efex. I wish I remembered how I do these things (must get more organised) but I think this is using split yellow/blue filter. It has ended up to me looking like a now defunct film such as Adox, with a hint of perfectly balanced fill in flash! (tho' none used).

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Now Adox was a Film.

    It does date you.

    If I remember well Adox has a 10 or 25 ASA film -- the enlargements were limitless and one would use one's body for dodging!

    There also was this German B&W paper (cannot remember name) that Kodak bought and "killed". That was the last time that I used a Kodak product. Went over to Agfa.

    Re: LX3 images.

    Hello,

    Yes, Adox, the oldest photo-chemical company in the world. I'm surprised body-dodging printing never caught on.

    I never used the b/w film but I notice they are still making it and there are some good examples as they even have their own Flickr group!

    I had an Adox Polo camera in the early 60's, re-badged in the UK as a Gnome, and used Adox transparency film.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Re: LX3 images.

    Hi Howard,

    Thanks a million. It is still a great camera, all things considered. I like it because I never have to focus it or care a too much about the right exposure! All I have to to is fit the shapes and angles into the given area!

    IOS is great and here is 1/4 sec completely hand held of something called a "chaotic pendulum" in the Gothic Parish Church of St Mary Redcliffe in Bristol-(a favourite of Queen Elizabeth the First[!]). You can Google to read about it or watch it working. Also an interior shot.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Re: LX3 images.

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks.

    Yes I think there is something about the attitude of the child, almost Janus like and wondering on the edge of innocence, what's happening over there.

    The delicate egg shell creaminess of the processing highlights the fraility of life, a fact only emphasised by the one dimensional nature of the looming building behind.

    Still, enough of that, here's an interesting block of flats and a big ball in Bristol.

    Cheers,

    Re: LX3 images.

    Is the tram line still there?

    I worked? in Brissle for about 18years, mainly in the building I mentioned, starting in about 1967. Back then the docks were working. The best thing about that place, was seeing it in my rear view mirror.

    Not much better now.

    Best wishes,

    ..so that was in fact The Great Hall at Christ Church College, Oxford.

    It had been prepared for a banquet that evening.

    Unfortunately I was not on the Invited List.

    Here are 3 more around Christ Church; and the round Radcliffe Camera, which houses a Science Library.
