I was going to title this post "Soup and Quackers" (yuck yuck yuck) but there's no soup here, only my Mamiya TLR.
Shot with my Nikon f4s and dimestore B/W film under the natural light from a nearby window. This shot should have been with my Green Bank work, but frankly I'd forgotten about the roll and only recently found it.
You have seen this angel before, Hollywood Cemetery, filmed with my Nikon f3hp during the snowy day. Probably can't tell there's snow on the ground, we got a whopping 2 inches overnight, and the sunny day had most of it melted by the time I got there.
Ok so the title of this post has nothing to do with the picture to the left, I admit that. The weatherman is predicting snow for Sunday and couple that with having Monday off (hooray for state jobs!) this will be one view I will re-visit in the snow (providing we get more than our usual 1/16 of an inch)
Taken from the same batch as the rest. Kodak B/W film, nikon f3hp, overcast day, 28mm Sipratone lens
The parking deck near my office has installed solar panels on the very top deck. It had been closed off for some time while they were working on it, but it just reopened and I had the chance before work to see how it looked.
I've been carrying my f3hp with me and loaded with kodak (grrrr it's a drug, I'm addicted to their film) BW400CN film I'm really enjoying using it.
Results from the one hour labs are always unpredictable but that adds to the fun for me.
A great advantage (for me) to owning a used camera is I don't feel too bad about dinging it. In this case the f3hp came pre-dinged, so I'm less worried about adding more to it, and thus more apt to bringing places I wouldn't otherwise carry a camera.
Here is a river/bridge scene from near downtown. The 50mm f/1.8 lens really is a cracking lens, in autofocus or manual mode (as used here) and is sharp everywhere.
I *love* the Nikon system. Old camera, new lens, new camera, old lens, none of this poses a problem. Case in point the previous post was with an old camera and an old lens and no issues. This post is the same old camera (f3hp) and new lens (50mm f/1.8) and no problems at all.
The 50mm has a polarizer attached to the front giving the sky a slightly darker look, but not enough. Gonna have to go rooting around for a few ND filters.
I work downtown and have started taking a camera with me to work, just in case. Lately, I've been taking my new (to me) Nikon f3hp with motordrive. Coming down the stairs of the parking deck was this orange on a shelf.
I was using my old 35-70mm f/2.8 lens which had developed some severe haze after a weekend shooting at a beach some years ago, and I wasn't sure how anything shot with this lens would turn out.
I think in this case, the haze adds to the sense of isolation.
