Your favourite photo(s) you took with a TLR

Hi all,
just post the favourite photo(s) you took with your TLR.
Here is mine, taken with my trusty Rolleiflex T.
A Japanese tourists group on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. They didn't post at all! The girl on the left was looking at me while I was focusing, with a "you won't take a photo will you?" look, and they all burst into laughers when they heard the little "click".
It wouldn't have been possible with another type of camera...
(there might have been a sligth light leak on the top left, or is it because te photo wasn't developped properly?)

Oh Lord, wasn't he the man who was shot dead in the streets of London 3 or 4 years ago?
Nice moving "à la Weegee" picture.

Browsing through my stuff from the 90s or so, I came across a couple... pretty sure they were taken with my 124G I used to have.

Wow, some great pics above. Ian - love that pipe! Now, if he had been sitting astride the pipe, ...! Thafred - don't apologise, the size is perfect, and the images are excellent. I love that shadow, and the colour shot is excellent - very well planned and executed. .

Ian and Thafred, wonderful images!

An image I shot at Beltring War&Peace show 2007, my skills and the Ciroflex lens quality pale in comparison to your wonderful photos


Film Adox CHS 100 ART, scanned from a contactprint.

It's not the best I've ever taken, but the slightly fuzzy quality does give it a ww2-period feel.

Maybe not my favorite, but I like the tones in this one: TriX at 250, Rolleiflex T.

It's called 645. One of the formats cleverly provided for with the RolleiflexT.
