souped and scanned a roll of hp5 with lots of new shots of the granddaughters. also, the x100 arrived. started a steep learning curve, but i tell you, it is a nice cam; very barnack-ish ...

Mixed new batch of Kodak Rapid Fix. Marveled at the big layer of silver (I guess) that settled to the bottom when I poured the old batch in a see-through container and resolved to not make 1 gallon of the stuff last me a whole year again.

Scanned and Photoshopped the keepers from two rolls TMax400 35mm and one in 120mm that were developed yesterday. I hope to get into the darkroom next weekend.

It is nearly weekend again here. What will you be doing?

I will attend an arts festival in Pensacola on Sunday. Tomorrow is undecided yet.
It may be a good time for a Barnack.

i hope to get up shortly after sunrise, go to black creek, and exercise the x100; i may try to get into the city for a bit to look for some edges and angles and shadows amongst the autumn light.

That is understood,Paul. What you did was more important.

Since Kodak is pulling the plug on another great film I want to load a camera with some Plus X & celebrate what a great film it was!

Just got home from the HS football game. I will edit photos tomorrow (actually later today). Then I will just chill on Sunday. I'm taking 30 kids to a robotics competition Monday - I'll shoot lots there. I'll shoot with the 75 lux mostly.

I got today in the mail a gorgeous looking Zeiss 5cm 2.8 for the Contax. I will use it tomorrow on a Leica with an adapter.

Heading out to Grantville for a photo op with a 100-year old resident of the town that was the motif of my latest documentary. Will set up an interview for sound bites with this gentleman in order to begin work on the DVD version of the documentary.

Just back from a local camera show where for the grand total of $18 (incl. admission) I found a spare take-up spool for the Contax, a Fujimoto enlarger, and a Fuji enlarger lens. Fondled a lot of neat cameras, too, but managed to remain strong. Mostly because FSU gear was scarce. Except for one gold-plated monstrosity, there were no FEDs or Zorkis to be seen, but I did play with a number of Kievs and even one Leningrad.

Anytime is a good time for a Barnack...if I had one.

It rained all day yesterday, but it cleared up this morning and everything was sparkly and bright when the sun broke through the clouds.
So I went for a walk up the hill with the old oak wood clumps and shot some plus-x on my M6 and 21mm C-Biogon.

30 rolls of plus-x left in the fridge and 40 short rolls on their way ... then that's it.

Dave: Barnacks show up for less than $300 here and there. I like using a Barnack only occasionally since I have cameras that are more practical for use.

It is Veterans Day weekend in the USA.
The weather is wonderful in Pensacola. I am looking at a blue sky without any clouds (no great), but we have colder weather. It is about 53F now. It was 40F an hour ago.


I will pick up 8 rolls of scanned film today, so I will have some editing to do,

What are you planned activities for this weekend?

Another weekend, another attempt to get a darkroom set up... Foiled by the freak snowstorm two weeks ago, and last weekend we were driving back from our escape location.

I also have a roll to finish in a modest classic Voigtländer (Vitoret DR). Something should present itself where my wife wants to buy a chainsaw, somewhere in NH.

Shot some pics at the local Veterans Day Ceremonies this morning, and will probably load up the Iloca Aut-O-Mat I just repaired with my last roll of Plus-X.

Any actual photography is out for me this weekend because I had basal cell cancer removed from my nose two days ago, and my nose is still swollen and sore such that I can't hold a camera up to either eye, nor wear my glasses.

So I am going to read about photography, including finishing reading the book by Roger Hicks, "Successful Black and White Photography, A Practical Handbook" which I found at the Half Price Books store recently.

I'll be out shooting my $100 Rolleiflex. I got it at the auction site advertised as non-working. Surprisingly enough it seems to work fine, and my first test roll came out pretty well. I will shoot a few more rolls over the weekend, and post some results next week.

I plan to shoot a roll of Plus-X for the tribute W/NW Darren started in the bessa R. I have two rolls to develop & scan. One from a trip to Old Salem last Sunday afternoon. Also have two rolls of C-41 process film to send off to the lab.
