Oh the usual.
Go somewhere downtown, wander the streets looking for good stories to tell with photos.
Just before I walk out the door, I'll either schlepp my film SLR kit or grab the bag with the rangefinders, as the mood strikes me.

We have amazingly wonderful weather since a few days. The sky is deep blue, and there is a cool breeze in the morning and in the evening, with warm noon and afternoon.

Shot street photos this morning at the local farmer's market with the M3 and 50mm Summicron. Then later in the day went to the grandson's soccer game with and evil DSLR.

Shooting MF in Philadelphia around the fountain plaza leading to city hall in amazing light with a great cloudscape. The sculpture fountains were on and luminous, the architecture grand, and the nascent foliage beautiful. Mono and color today with the Pentax 67. A fabulous day and evening to be out shooting.

I will be shooting some portraits at a local music festival this weekend. Not sure which camera I'll bring out to play, but probably a Leica with a 90mm or a 135mm on it.

How is your weekend going so far?
I used the 75/1.4 Lux in a few shots at home. Not much else. It is steaming hot in Pensacola these days. The air conditioning indoors is more tempting than sweating outdoors to do some photography.

It is weekend again! Today, we had both sunny weather with blue sky, and then stormy rain weather as if the world was sinking into water. I used my Hasselblad wide angle MF camera, SWC when the weather was nice.

What are you doing this weekend?

In Minneapolis for the weekend with the MM and ZM 35 C-Biogon. What a beautiful city. And their Art Institute has an impressive photography collection. Not a dedicated shooting trip, but still getting in some street time.

There was a metal concert downtown last nite, I walked the streets around the venue before the sunset for some "street tatoo" pictures.
I wandered over to where my son had set up a dancer/model shoot in the street in front of a theater, but didn't hang around.

In the same general area this morning, a monthly "junk fair" was held, and I got some more street pics.
I am slowly losing the fear of street shooting, and in some situations I will engage, and ask permission.
I have been shooting the Leica Standard w/tri-x at 800.

I love using my Leica Standard with wide angle lenses. The shutter release is butter smooth.

Walked the mean streets of downtown San Diego today : ) with my X100 + TCL. Tomorrow I think I will head out to the desert and see if I can catch some cloud bursts in the afternoon with my digilux 2 and X100.

Hi Raid, the poll in this thread closed some years ago. It would be interesting to repoll to see the difference some years make in camera type use.

How can we start a new poll or how can we re-open it, Frank? You may have meant to have a new poll in a separate thread. Good idea.

I just shot a sheet of New55 color film in my old Busch Pressman 4X5. Disappointing results. The chemical pod didn't properly open so only 1/2 of the image developed. What did develop was interesting, not life-like colors, but kind of dreamy. This new film has potential, if they can fix the processing problems.

New55 is the start-up company trying to produce a 4X5 film similar to the old Polaroid stuff. They’ve been concentrating on their B&W film the past few years, but produced a batch of experimental color 4X5 Polaroid-type film to see if there was any interest in such a product. They only produced 400 boxes (200 exposures). I signed up for a box back in May (?) which came in last week. An interesting product, I hope they can work the kinks out.

I am going to shoot the 50 a while to prove I know what I'm doing with this camera, but I want a 3.5cm. I am just window shopping for now.

Raid, There's a Rokkor 21/4 in LTM??? Where did you get it?

Also envious for that Canon 19. I had a chance to buy one a few years ago and I remember passing because I thought they wanted too much $$ for it. I was wrong

No, I found an adapter Rokkor to ltm.
The Canon 19 is sold in two versions. Get the less expensive SLR lens without RF focusing. A 19mm lens can easily be focused without a RF. Then get Canon Adapter B (to ltm).

$295 on ebay now: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Estate-Canon...YAAOSw65FXqPX0

Went to the Georgia O'Keeffe exhibition at Tate Modern today. There were several photos by Alfred Stieglitz, mostly these were platinum prints and very dark indeed by today's standard. Since platinum is one of the most archival of all media one can only assume that they were intended to be like this.

A little fun this weekend, with a run up to Cicely, Alaska for some Northern Exposure at the Sunday farmers' market! (That would of course be Roslyn Washington where some of the show was shot). Noticed that Chris's radio studio has been condensed into a small window display now.

Just back form Hong Kong; so hot and humid - wall to wall with Chinese tourists armed with selfie-sticks and wheeled suitcases.
Glad I went minimalist M6+35/1.4 MS Apoqualia.

It's been brutally hot and humid in New England so last weekend I was indoors. This weekend there's a classic car show just up the road from my house and the forecast is much better. Perhaps I'll go bother some old-timers.

In recent months, it's been dark when I leave home, and dark when I arrive back from work, so I'm looking forward to doing some solid walking and shooting on the weekend!

Will walk to a beachside suburb near my house and then spend a few hours wandering and shooting. Will be shooting digital for a project I am working on covering the suburb, but also will have 35mm B&W film with me for another project I'm working on.

Looking forwad to some quality walking and exploring, and the weather is warming up too, so it should be a lovely day!

It's hot and humid where I live, so I stay inside. And my Wife is recovering from a foot surgery, I am taking care of her.

My new photo project is hacking the lenses from the Fuji GX680 and putting them in Seiko #1 Shutters, so I can use them on my three Plaubel Makiflexes. You unscrew the front and back lens cells from the GX680, and screw them into the Seiko shutters. I have ordered a 150mm F4.5 Fuji GX80 lens for a reasonable price, and am looking for the Seiko #1 shutters. I may also use lenses from the Mamiya RB67.
