I'm off to Brussels with two new toys:
VC Nokton 50 1.5 for my Rollei 35rf
Freshly CLA'd Rolleiflex 2.8c

I'm so excited to have them both that I'm sure it will be difficult to choose, so I'm thinking that I'll shoot the Rolleiflex in the day and the RF in the evening.

Have a great weekend!
Rob

Did you get snow, Raid? Someplace in Florida got snow, so we have snow cover in 49 states. Would have been 50 if it had snowed on top of those volcanoes in Hawaii.

Bill,
No snow so far in Pensacola, but if there is snow tomorrow with driving distance, then I will drive my family there. The kids want to build a snowman.

Rob,

I have the 2.8D with the Planar taking lens. The camera is really awesome. Have fun in Brussels. I recall crazy driving methods in the streets of Brussles.

Hi Raid,

We took the train, I too have driven in Brussels and prefer to avoid it

Unfortunately we had a lot of snow and wind, not great weather for photos, but I did get a few good ones. Here is one of each per new toy. First the Rolleiflex 2.8c (square, obviously) then Nokton 50 1.5 on the Rollei 35RF.

Hi Rob,
Sometimes it is best simply to enjoy the trip and to put photography aside. There is more to life than photography! I need to remind myself too.

Well, it is weekend time again, and with the improved weather situation, there is maybe some photography for me this weekend.

I will use the Pentax 43mm 1.9 RF lens to give this beautiful lens the chance to show me what it can deliver.

What are your plans for photography this weekend?

Hi Raid,

Certainly, photography for me is just a hobby, and having good pics is more the icing on the cake than the point. Brussels was fun for other reasons. This weekend we have a "Murder Party". A friend is having his birthday party as a kind of live mystery Clue (Cluedo in most of Europe) game. I'm taking along the Rolleiflex and tripod to take portraits of "the usual suspects" (a.k.a. my friends) in 1930s period costume. The game should be great fun!

Have a great weekend,
Rob

This sounds like a very interesting and fun event, Rob. Using a TLR with flash will be very formal. Post your results here when you get the film developed and scanned.

Testing an OM2

An OM2 came in the mail yesterday and I have it loaded with BW400CN to give it a test drive. Meter seems to check out OK. So, I'm off. Fortunately there's a Costco less than a mile away, so I'll have developed and scanned film to play with on the 'puter this evening.

Have fun!

Although technically not the weekend, this Monday and Tuesday I have some klave off work and I'm taking what will probably be my penultimate trip for the Impression MK stuff I have spent the past year working on. Scary thinking about the time and energy I have put into this project; I can so get get why Gene Smith became so obsessed with his Pitssburgh Project!

I am about to leave our home, taking with me two "normal" lenses.
Pentax 43mm 1.9 and CZJ 50mm 1.5.

Life is good.

Hi Raid, I hope your dancing shoes served you well yesterday. I would love to see some shots from the CZJ some time. Your top 12 gallery is great, I love the light in the Lucca photo.

The Murder Party was unbelievably fun! I had no idea my friends could act so well, and it was like watching and acting in a play all at once. I fully recommend it!

I was not the murderer but I had many convinced that I was, and my role was just a common thug with correspondingly but realistic lack of command of French.

The films are developed but they curled when drying. They look like they have potential but are under a very heavy book until I scan them tomorrow. I'll try to get them onto Flickr tomorrow and post a link here.

I hope everyone else had a great weekend!

I'm going skiing and will only get back to it next week to finish the processing and put it together into a photobook for my friends. Until then, have fun next weekend!

It is weekend again, and I was out of town to attend a medical conference in San Antonio. I took with me the tiny Minox GT in my pocket, and I took severel photos there. Nothing special, but as I was on the 8th floor in the hotel, I had an interesting "view down".

What were/are you up to?

Today, I plan to hand a camera, lens, and a roll of Tri-X 400 to my son, and then walk him through the whole process from attaching the lens to the camera through hanging the exposed negatives up to dry. I am hoping we'll have some fun.

Spent yesterday morning doing a studio test shoot with the Zeiss Super Ikonta BX (533/16) w/Carl Zeiss Jena 8cm f2.8 Tessar. that I purchased a couple of weeks back. Shoot a roll of Reala, Across, Porta160VC, Pan F and Extachcrome EPP 100. Should get the negs back on Wed or Thu.

Today I'm working on processing and editing the bulb flash multiple exposure shots I took the week before last with my Bessa-I.

Done. We both had fun.

Unfortunately, neither of us loaded the film correctly (in our excitement), and both strips of negatives are devoid of images.

Oh well, there's always next weekend.

I just got back from a drive along the beaches with my family. I took some photos with the Pentax Limited 43mm 1.9 on the Hexar RF. The colors were beautiful.

Today I used a Hexar RF with 35mm Lux and also a Bessa R with a Pentax 43mm 1.9 to take some photos of a beautiful tree downtown. It was in full bloom.

What are your weekend plans?

Jay,
This reminds me of the times when I was able to do such [great] trips. Post some of the results when you can. That part of the USA is just incredible and a source of pride for all of us to be able to enjoy.

I may take a trip with my family to Mobile, Alabam. No clue what's there, but a friend wants to drive over there.

What will you be up to?

I used the black Yashica GT for the first time today.I put the setting to Auto, the F stop to 8.0-11, and with a Kodak 100UC film. I expect some nice results.

Usually there are some comments about the weekend, but this time it seems to be a weekend without comments. What is going on?

Thanks to the almost perfect shooting conditions, for this time of the year, my weekend came a couple of day's early this week. During this time of the year I keep my fingers' crossed for days with temps in the 60s and light overcast. Once I see that one is coming up the text messages and emails start going out to see which of my favorite subjects is willing to brave the so so conditions for an hour or so of shooting. Once I have a willing subject we set a time and location to meet and shoot. In this case that was Thursday afternoon during which time I shot a roll of Portra 160NC with my M4-2 and two roll of EPP-100 with my 533/16. Missed the courier for the day by 15 minutes so I'm not sure if my film will be back by tomorrow or Tuesday afternoon.

Fighting a light leak in my just acquired IIIf so i shot some Neopan 1600 with it yesterday, then decided to part disassemble it anyway without even waiting for those shots (alas, no smoking gun).

Took some during-the-storm shots of the pond and stream on the farm next door this morning with an evil Pentax.

Even with this kind of weather though, I can't get myself to do any developing or scanning.

I will start trying out my Egypt trip 50mm lens so that I know what I can expect from the lenses when I will use them overseas.

I know the CV 25/4 very well, so there is no need to "test" it again.
As for a fast 50mm lens, I may try the Canon 50/1.5 versus the CZJ 5cm/1.5.

What are your plans for this weekend?
The weather is improving, so hopefully you will go out and take photos.

I'm going to go out and shoot some Tri-X at some absurdly high speed (for me) and do a little Rodinal stand development. Just some fun testing

I have had good results with 3200 ASA and then adding some contrast and sepia coloring. Thee image looked really like a vintage image.

Silly me...I'm continuing my adventures with Kodak Gold 200, to see how my fave "low-end" color film's doing these days. (My local CVS has seriously stocked up on the stuff, among other film types.)
