Greg, jump on in!

I love Holgas! If I had one, I would be posting with images from it! Show us your hometown!

Wow, we drove all the way to the little town in the country to finish a roll and start a brand new roll for the Challenge, little did I know it would take almost three hours to finish a roll of Ektar and I would not have time to shoot the full roll.

The problem was, so many people wanted to talk which was great! But, I ran out of time and will return to shoot next week. I was even approached by a nice lady at the Bank who was wondering why I was photographing the bank. Apparently, they are paranoid about something but, in a town with a population of 300... in the middle of nowhere?


It takes so long to shoot one 12 frame roll!

Photos from a 15 mile stroll around the suburbs of my hometown, Leeds in the North of the UK.

I like to seek out run down, forgotten little corners of the city, and Leeds is full of them.

Photos taken on Ilford Delta 100 with my Balda Super Baldax. Suffering from some light leaks from the film door but regardless, it's a wonderful camera.

Love your series Arbitrarium! Sometimes the forgotten corners are interesting and tell us something about our times.

Every town has it's dark corners, some more than others. It's what makes them interesting. You found quite a few there on your stroll, Arbitrarium.

I shot one roll of Fuji Pro 400H on a Saturday afternoon in Liverpool with a Mamiya C330. (This is my first post here btw, so I apologize in advance if things don't go as planned.)
I started off near the mosque, where I happened to find a parking space and strolled towards the Mersey from there:









... the first four...

Next to the entrance gate to Chinatown, some people where putting up a banner commemorating the Hillsborough disaster:

Not a great picture, but the event is still very much remembered here, so I included it.



That's all folks.

Dave, I have a problem here!

Yesterday I went out to shoot my roll, Portra 160 in my Rolleiflex.

It was sunny, a little windy, very clear air.

I decided to shoot how my town changes coming from the suburban area to the center of the town, keeping an open eye to the crossroads. I'm always interested in crossroads.

So I drove a few minutes away from the center, parked the car and walk a little. Set the camera at F8 and 1/250 sec. I found three interesting point of view for the challenge and I shot without problem, than I drove a little towards the center and shot another couple of frames.

Than back home and I thought it could be interesting a photo from the balcony on the back of my apartment. A quick check of the light with my Seconic, again F8 and 1/250, A look down into the viewfinder and voilą, done!

No, not realyy, the camera didn't shoot. Opps, sometimes I forget to rewind it before shooting but...I tried and the rewind was stuck. No possible to move it. No possible to shoot any more frame!

Not sure what happening, today I'll try to open it in the darkroom by the laboratory where I usually have my color films developed and scanned.

I hope at least the first frames are ok, maybe my one will only an "Half Roll Challenge"

robert

PS: still 10 days to shoot another time another roll...maybe another camera

I was yesterday afternoon downtown Milan we rescued the half exposed film from my Rolleiflex which will be developed in the next days. Meantime verified that the camera doesn't shoot anymore left it to the repair shop which already had work on it 4 years ago.

But we're going to have a few holidays in the nest weeks so I guess both film and camera have to wait until beginning may

Hi, Brad!

I am running behind as well... so how about us dropping the deadline?

UPDATE!!!
There is now no deadline, just to keep this challenging thread open!

Thanks Dave. To be honest I was really lazy. I stood in one spot & just rotated the camera instead of walking around town!

I love panoramas. It's a quick way to use up frames when you are trying to finish up a roll. But that's not the only reason I shoot them. They just give so much more information to the viewer, and I don't many times have an ultra-wide lens with me.

Great use of the decatych, Brad. I always wondered what Galeton looked like.

I've always felt a lot of your photos of Danville could be anywhere in mid-western US, John (minus the mountains of course). Just shows how people brings their ways with them no matter where they settle.

I goofed this thread, I got excited and used more than one roll. You are right Danville looks mid-western down town, but outside it is typical California suburban housing developments: acres of big boxes. And with the new money surge we are losing some of our old buildings; too bad maybe I'll move to the Midwest.

Time to revitalize this thread...

My first attempt was not successful because my Rolleiflex stop to work after 4-5 shots...
Than summer arrived and it was to hot to shoot around...
Tried again with my Zeiss Super Ikonta going from the suburbs to the center of my town.

This is the scan of the complete roll, In a couple of week I'll scan the single frames and post a few detailed photos...

robert

Nice, Robert! Can't wait to see the larger images and some narrative...
This is just what I was hoping for.

As you know, I am far behind in my processing and posting here. I have been slightly pre-occupied with my work, it is time for me to process my rolls of 120 film and shoot some more!!!!
