Way back in March we had a discussion about playgrounds as a monthly theme. Well, I loaded my HiMatic 7s with some color print film then and finally finished the roll last week. Nothing like taking 2 months to shot a roll of film. Had them processed and put onto a CD at the local WalMart. That's the best I can do, don't own a scanner but did buy a new computer (that's a whole nother story). The 4x6 prints are sharp. This Minolta has a great lens. Can't wait to try out the 7sII one of these days. So, with out further adeiu, here's the first of 3.

Neat designs! And you still avoided being seen as a creep! Good job! :)

Really a nice sequence, Brian! Don't say adieu quite yet, I for one would like to see some more. :-) I like the clean designs of the bright tubing against the plain backgrounds... I'm inspired to go looking at playgrounds too!

Thanks all for the input. Maybe it won't take me 2 months to shoot the next roll of film. Here's a variation of picture #2.

I'd personally not crop so much off the top as to actually cut the subject, and I'd prefer a colour balance between the first and second version. I must say though : "What the hell do I know?" and that it is an excellent shot - better I think than any I have ever taken!

Thanks David. The hardest thing to get used to with a rangefinder is using the frame lines in the viewfinder, especially the top one. It seems to fade in and out, or maybe its my eyes. With version 2, I was conscious of anchoring the bottom left corner with the rail and keeping the rails on the right side in the proper position that I might not have paid as much attention to the top as I should have. Again, thanks.
