Consider my kickoff image as something of a placeholder to start things here, on account of (1) my shooting film (and Gold 200 at that), and (2) my having to leave the driving, scan-wise, to CVS later in the morning, as my main desktop rig is sitting disassembled in my new abode, awaiting my arrival with the rest of my stuff (snowstorm-delayed, as was my ill-fated Kodachrome shipment to Dwayne's), leaving me mostly scanner-less for the first time in years. Looking forward to seeing those scans. The conditions in Propect Park were near-perfect: temperature hovering around 40° F, no wind, and clear skies.

Anyway, wherever you were when they shot the 'works, let see your shots!

Barrett,

Didn't really shot the 'works here, but these are from where I were.

Barrett--

Still feelin' for ya 'bout the Kodachrome thing. 'nuff said.

Much obliged. I'm getting over it...slowly.

What is that zoomy thing on the OM2n?That be a Sigma 21-35mm f/3.5-4.5, which (I've been told) is relatively rare in OM mount. Snagged it off the 'Bay a few years back, then discovered the (permanent) lens hood was oriented the wrong way! A trip to Nippon Photo Clinic in Manhattan took care of things, but the cost for that made the lens a bit less of a "bargain." Still a good optic, though. Results shortly.

Thanks Barrett.

I also sent my last roll of Kodachrome to Dwayne on Monday via USPS. Have not heard anything yet… :p

From last night:

Tree of Lights, Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NY, January 1, 2011

(Technical: Olympus OM-2n, Sigma 21-35mm f/3.5-4.5, Kodak Gold 200, f/11 and really "being there")

I have a few more interesting snaps on that roll, but I like this one best.

Conditions in Prospect Park were perfect for a New Year's night. Great band as well.
