For once I have some cheapo 400 speed Fuji at hand for a dreary weekend. Loaded the Rollei B35 and took a few shots of my dog playing in the snow earlier. Now I think I'll take a photo walk in Lowell to finish it. Oh, and I have a Vivitar 28/2.5 for Konica to try out. I think I feel lazy enough to mount it on the FP-1 (which is program exposure only).

What, nobody else all afternoon?

Just before I left the house, the sun came out, so I grabbed a roll of 200 for the second camera. Worked out pretty well, I think. Hung out around Aiken St bridge in Lowell which is a little lame. Bridges are even easier to shoot than fish in a barrel.

^It was! What's even better, I came home to a fresh poppy seed pound cake my wife baked today. It was either drop the roll off at CVS or be home in time for cake though. Tomorrow.

...An Old Cherokee told his grandson, "My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us.
One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humilty, kindness, empathy and truth.
The boy thought about it and asked, "Grandfather, which wolf wins?"
The old man quietly replied, "The one you feed."...

-from Taskoni-

This is wonderful and it speaks of the truth!

Thanks for showing this!

Have a great week.

Ooops....

I used my Canon 1D Mark something or another this weekend!

Also have my Mamiyaflex (the one with only 1 focusing knob!) on a Manfretto tripod. Have Artista 100 film loaded.

Fun & Smiles!

The weather changed from raining with dark grey sky yesterday to sunny with deep blue sky today.

I will be enjoying the day with my family. It is a special day for me.
Camera gear: who cares really, but I packed a full size camera bag for today.

Well weekend over this side of the pond.
I took a quick trip to Manchester yesterday (sat) mainly to get a hood for a new Pentax 50/1.2.

Gave it a spin on an ME loaded with Rollie Retro 100.

Hi Bill,
This thread is a longstanding thread in which some of use share what we do on weekends photographically (or otherwise). Good to see you here.

Met my sun for the day yesterday and went through a film just shooting the odd things that interested me. I was going to go out today but the sky opened and it was very dark and gloomy outside I read and scanned and deved a few films.

Finished the roll of color 200 that I started last weekend, in the apple orchard next door to us. After a long chat with our dear neighbor who did indeed ask "can you still get film for that?" when I showed him my camera (that's the lowly Konica FP-1). Mind you, he's been around longer than Tri-X...

Now I have two rolls of C-41 waiting for me at CVS, and I just put some test shots on half a roll of more-than-expired Tasma film through Caffenol-C. Scanning all of this tomorrow.

I used the Contax G yesterday. The 90mm lens gave me some problems for awhile by not allowing AF, but then it worked again.

My wife and I went birding yesterday. The Blue Herons kept their distance, unfortunately, but we had a good time nonetheless. I used my new Minolta 400mm APO f5.6 Rokkor-X and 2X APO Rokkor Converter. Took a Minolta SRT101 loaded with Fuji Presto 400, and a heavy Manfrotto Tripod and Big Manfrotto Ball Head. Did get some very cool 800mm closeups of geese that were resting at a distance on some submerged logs. I am going to like this combo for birding. A good test session wringing out equipment.

Today I am mixing fresh B&W darkroom chemicals. Local supplies for these items are drying up, based on what I found today at the remaining "Superstore" and local shop. Did find what I needed there, but it looks like old stock to me. Luckily Midwest Photo is not far away and sells darkroom supplies, and there is always mail order. Have about twenty exposed B&W rolls to process in the next week or so.
