I did. I lived in the 14th, across the street from the Parc Montsouris, for four months (I was extremely fortunate, and got funded for an academic event). Hopefully I'll get a chance to live in the city again.

Thanks! Yeah, I remember hearing a famous photographer (who's name I currently forget) explaining that he actively looked to crop out modern technology/architecture in his portraits and reportage, in order to give his photos a more timeless feel. Quite good advice actually.

First shot is neopan 400 which I developed myself in HC-110 dilution B for 5 mins, and yeah, I was really pleased with how the tones came out!

Here is mine from when I used to own a Rolleiflex 2.8C with Xenotar and a close up lens set:

Taken with my (long gone) Seagull 4B-I, Ektachrome 64; I just had planned to shoot the stairs when I heard the childrens voices. The shot made my day.

The lavender wheel is a result of cross processing slide film

The art car belongs to a lady here in town, we have an active art car community...we even have an art car museum

It's been a while since I posted. Here's a "digital lith" image from a "portals" series that I did a couple of years ago. Originally taken with my Rolleiflex 3.5E/Xenotar on color negative film, scanned, and "digital lith" processed.

The rest of the gallery is here.

Motosacto:

Very good stuff. I noticed that all portal shots consist of portals in brick buildings, a nice touch.

A photographer friend of mine (Boyd Nicholl) who lives here in Bisbee, recently did a book called "Doors of Bisbee." I had the idea before he did; but I procrastinated and he didn't.

Here are few of my favorites, all taken with my Rolleiflex (Xenotar 2.8), made in 1956, and still my favorite camera.

Todd, that's a wonderful shot of the horse.

Here's are a couple I grabbed on the way to work last week with my 3.5E3 Xenotar Rolleiflex on HP-5+:

Thanks Ted. You can say that they're bulky, clunky & ugly - but they still take decent pictures.

Indeed. They are all of that, but it's the photograph that counts.

TLRs were the main camera I used for 40+ years, so I'm not sure I could identify a "most favorite" but here is one that comes from the top of my list:

5 Wise Guys, Riverside Church, New York, Mamiya c220, 80mm lens

I seem to get consistently pleasant results from my Yashicamat 124. Maybe I should use it more.
This is on Ilford SFX with red filter. A thin neg, but just useable.

I have not a scanner for my Rolleiflex negatives, I have to ask a fiend do it for me. Becaue of this reason even if I'm using my father's rolleiflex a lot I have not many files.Just a few here from the sound check of a jazz concert. Special guest Yuri Goloubev at the bass, Marco Zanoli at drums Marco Bianchi at vibrafono (i don't know the english word for vibrefono). I like to use the rolleiflex when taking pictures during the check before the play because is very silent and the musicians are not disturbed

Robert Blu:

The English word for vibrefono is "vibraphone."

Very nice pictures, and you should post more. Just curious, after the music starts I suppose it would not matter what camera you used in terms of loud shutter noise. Like a Hasselblad, for instance, or a Kowa 6.

@tedwhite: thanks for comment: yes it is true, after the music starts taking pictures is less difficult, but not always is covers the "click" of a fotocamera. And I like to sit and just enjoy the listening...
@trittium: nice set of pictures: I'm very impressed by the first one, where the concerned face of the woman in a warm light comes out against the blueish cold background. very good.
