Austin in Color, April 2016

Every­thing is hazy in Austin. A beau­ti­ful city with much more to explore than what I pho­tographed. But so hot, so dusty!

Raleigh, February 2016

February 24, 2016 at 11:24 am

Every few months I travel to Raleigh, North Car­olina and on these vis­its I try to explore down­town a lit­tle bit. This month I had another trip and took my Leica M3 and my (new to me) Mamiya C330. These are some of my favorites from three ses­sions — one late after­noon and one night­time walk with the M3, and one mid­day with the C330. The M3 had a roll of expired 400UC and the Mamiya was loaded with Ultra­fine Extreme 400.

I’ve got­ten to a pretty com­fort­able place with the Leica, but the C330 is still very for­eign to me. In fact, on three of my images the lens didn’t acti­vate — no idea what I did wrong there. I had switched out the 80mm 2.8 for a 180mm 4.5 and some­how didn’t set it up cor­rectly. Will read more and bet­ter luck next time. Big thank you to Karl Abbott for the roll of Ultra­fine — it turned out great in a Microphen stock dev!

Battle of Nashville Park, January 2016

There is a strik­ing statue in Nashville, really one of the most incred­i­ble I’ve seen in the entire area. It’s in a small park — barely an acre if that — set up as a memo­r­ial for the Bat­tle of Nashville.

Supe­ria X-Tra 400, Leica M3.

Raleigh, February 2015. Tri-X 400 120, GA645

February 26, 2015 at 2:13 pm

This is the roll of Tri-X 400 that I picked up from the Imag­in­gUSA Kodak booth. I haven’t shot any medium for­mat Tri-X before (to my rec­ol­lec­tion any­way) and I was very impressed with the breadth of tone that could be pulled from the scans.

As always, I loved walk­ing around with the GA645. Just a great cam­era. So sharp, so reli­able — my only com­plaint is that it shoots 15 instead of 16 on a 120 roll (and 30 instead of 32 on 220). But being able to use the same equip­ment for 120 & 220 with­out adapters is pretty awe­some. Which reminds me.…I have a roll of FP4 220 that needs to be used!
