It is Friday, and the weekend is waiting for us just around the corner.
It is cold here in Pensacola, Florida. This also implies that the water of the Gulf is ice blue and that sunsets are very colorful. It is a matter of choosing between a cozy warm room inside our home (and no photography of the water) and being outdoors in cold weather. So what is "cold weather" here? 34F-60F for these days.
I am tempted to try out again my Leica Standard!

What are your plans for the weekend?

So you are in the +1 / 15 C not much different than here (north Italy) ...I have a Delta 3200 in the M7 probably I'll try some late afternoon and some indoor shots...nothing special...

Last Sunday we went to Pensacola Beach, and I managed to capture some nice looking sunset photos. Since 2 days I have carried with me my cameras to Destin Beach, and I took a few photos there, but not many. I used the newly repaired M8 which had hot pixels and which Leica NJ repaired. The old Summicron 35/2 was chosen for the M8.

I took some photos yesterday (late afternoon) of some birds and boats with the Rokkor-M 28mm/2.8 in the M8 and the 50/1.4 Pentax-M on the M9. We have rain today.

What are you up to this weekend?

I’m stuck at work until after sundown tonight and it’s supposed to rain early tomorrow. If it clears up I’ll probably put some film through either a freshly CLA’d Pentax SV or a newly acquired Zorki 4, although I haven’t decided where yet.

If the rain persists I’ll be developing a backlog of Double-X.

I'll shoot my M7 with the cv 35/1.7 LTM (and adaptor of course) to finish the Delta 3200 film I have in since two weeks. Planning to shoot in the late afternoon. No special idea, more a test than real shooting.

We had a thunderstorm with flash flood warning, but it has stopped or slowed down now.

Rehabilitating 1950-1960 era negatives my father made. They came from the Kodak lab wrapped around a strip of cardboard. As a result they are kinked and won't lie flat for scanning and storage. Washing, rewetting, and hanging them to dry seems to be working well.

It's lovely today for early December in Ohio (58F and full sun). So I bagged up my Makiflex Standard and three lenses, grabbed a tripod (it's very windy!) and found a strong fully lit test subject.

Ended up using the 360 Tele-Arton, and exposed 120 6.5x9 Ilford Fp4+, 120 6.5x9 Foma Retro Soft 320, and three 6.5x9cm J lane Dry glass plates. The dry plates are rated at ASA 2!

When I find a strong subject, I often shoot the same scene with different kinds of film. I think of this as a form of "bracketing". And I end up with a choice of different negatives. And because I'm using a tripod this is easy to do.

It is Friday evening here in the US. The weekend is lingering around the corner! I have my camera bag "loaded" with M3, M8, and M9.

What are you up to this weekend?

Things have been slow photography wise around here lately so I'm going to check out/get a tour of a communal darkroom this afternoon as thought I'd try getting back in the darkroom and making prints from some the 4x5 and 120 B&W negative that I've shot over the past decade or so.

Tonight is the full moon. My D750 batteries are charged and I have a motel room booked so I can spend half the night shooting an abandoned grain elevator under the moonlight, in Indiana. Unfortunately now the weather is looking uncooperative...

It has rained or threatened rain nearly every weekend in NE Alabama since Thanksgiving. The one Saturday I could have gone to the flea market to take pictures, I had a family thing to go to. And the long range forecast is that this weather pattern will run the rest of this month.

I tried out the new to me Ultron 50/2.0 on the M8 in downtown Pensacola. I will continue this exploration also tomorrow.
