A bamboo patch in Sasayama (21mm Color-Skopar)

Hello RFFers! I had a chance to revisit a little bamboo patch out in the Kansai countryside this year. These are some grab shots from my forest stroll, shot with my handy Leica 1f and 21mm Skopar on Delta 400. Feel free to leave some comments or questions!

thanks for looking and comments. I am really fond of this spot, and of the Leica 1f 21mm Skopar combo!

Great work,

And yes the Leica If is perfect with small wide lenses. I use a 25 skopar on mine

Thanks for looking and commenting folks! For a casual stroll through the bamboo I was really happy to see I got some keepers. I have only had the 21 for a few years and and am still learning how to use it. I find it a challenge to use compared to the 35 and 50 I am used to shooting; a lot of times the frame needs cropping, or the subject just doesn't coalesce. This bamboo patch was a pleasure to shoot though and I didn't feel compelled to crop any of these frames (ok, I was tempted to crop the wooden spool a little but I resisted). I am hoping my success with this shoot is a sign that I am starting to get the hang of this lens. I continue to be excited to own this lens and use it more (it is the most popular lens in the CV lens poll after all ), and indeed this is the only new lens I have ever purchased for my rangefinder kit (new old stock from our head bartender). Feel free to comment or critique! (^^)

Delta 400 is my favorite film! Deep bow to Ilford for continuing bless us with its availability. EI500 in 1:4 Tmax = 21stcenturyfilmjoy

I really like number 6, it feels like the bamboos never end.
How do you like that little lens? I want a 21 but I'm not sure if i should get the Skopar or save a little bit more and get the Zeiss or the Super Angulon.

hi thanks! I like this little lens very much. Great sharpness and contrast, not too much falloff, no noticable distortion, super small yet with fine egonomics, screws onto my 60 year old Leica. I couldn't ask for more. Well except for f1.8, but I make due with f4 which is very usable on this lens.

You picked a perfect subject for your lens, and paired it with some good film. It's sad to see you were able to find some human detritus in among the bamboo, though it does create a contrast between nature and man-made.

Thanks! i heartily agree this subject was very well suited to the 21mm field of view. The wooden spool was part of the location I felt fitting to show. It is near impossible to go anywhere in Japan without finding traces of people. Im just glad it wasn't a rusty old washing machine or bag of trash
