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!

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

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

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 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.

Thank you Ted and Simon.
I am planning to take out the Flexaret more this year as it is usualy resting on the shelf bacause of my RF preference. And you may see some pictures of this young lady as well, as she is a good friend of mine and my wife so we spend some time together. In the meantime, you can see her here. :o) (taken with Leica CL)

Until now, these two. Sorry for the horrible scans. My scanner doesnt like medium format film. And neither does my enlarger. I took these two days ago with my Yashicamat, during an American car show. Though the second one was not part of the show.
