    Chairs

    Taken in my hometown of Southampton with the Leica M9 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5 in 2016. Just processed into b&w from the original .dng file using Lightroom Classic. 1/500th f4.8 @ 200iso. Gerry

    Lancôme

    From the archives - Brittany, France. Leica M6 + 50mm Summicron f2. Film is Kodak T400CN commercially processed. Gerry
  4. Like so many I am in a lockdown situation, and as a safeguard I have not ventured out for many week because of my age and heart condition. Those around me are keen to keep me a live for some reason! 😄 I have therefore been exploring the home environment, and also exploring my under-used 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH. Here is one from my garden which was taken with the Elmarit on my M240, and then converted to black and white in Lightroom CC. Technical details are 1/90 f8 @ 2000iso Init is pretty dark under the oak tree). Hope you like it! Gerry
  5. I just now happened to stumble upon this essay on the M10 Monochrom which is accompanied by a nice set of sample images. In thinking about the concept of a black and white only digital camera in general and about the M10 Monochrom in particular, I was smitten with a thought that I cannot shake free of: The M 10 Monochrom may well be the pinnacle of the digital M camera. It is going to be an awfully hard act to follow. If anyone can best the M10 Monochrom, it would have to be the gents and ladies of Werzlar. https://www.popphoto.com/story/gear/hands-on-leica-m10-monochrome/
  6. Life is pretty quiet photographically for me at the moment, mostly due to really bad weather with heavy rain which makes street photography almost impossible. This means I am continuing my journey through my archives, and this I had forgotten. It shows a typical English pastime - playing bowls. The white clothes are the standard dress for everyone, and afternoon tea is almost compulsory. English tradition at its best. Leica M3 + 50mm Summicron f2. Ilford 400 Delta. 1997.
  7. Here's an interesting article about the "new and improved" Acros II black and white film from Fuji: Comparing Fujifilm NEOPAN 100 ACROS II to original ACROS. What's the difference? https://emulsive.org/articles/comparing-fujifilm-neopan-100-acros-ii-to-original-acros-whats-the-difference
  8. While we suffer an interminable wait for the (alleged soon to be) M10 Monochrom, I have to ask: Why not a Q2 Monochrom?? Think of the possibilities that a full frame, 47 MP, ISO 50,000 Monochrom with a 28mm f/1.7 lens and a silent leaf shutter would have to offer! To the gents in Wetzlar, I have to ask: Are you listening? To everyone else, I ask: What are your thoughts on a Q2 Monochrom?

    Old-timer

    It was in 1997 when my wife and I first visited New England. I wanted to attend the annual Star Island ‘escape’ of the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists, and it was to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary. Both of us had always wanted to visit the area for the fall colours, so we scraped the money together and did the trip. One of our days was spent travelling the road which was the old route of i95 before it became a multi-lane highway, to discover a little of rural America north of Boston. It turned out to be a fascinating drive with abandoned wood-built hotels, and large empty barns, both of which had died when the traffic deserted the road for the new superhighway. During our travels we came across a car lot selling rusty old heaps of autos which I did not understand why anybody would pay the price, but which I enjoyed enjoyed photographing. Today there is a programme here on cable TV in the UK called “American Pickers” and I understand the American restoration market more, and therefore the old-time autos sat by the roadside. As it was, I was just fascinated to see them and photograph some of them.I was new to Leica having bought my M3 double-stroke about 6 months earlier, and was using Kodak T400CN film so I could get it processed as I went to avoid x-ray problems at the airport. The lens was a beat-up 50mm Summicron f2 because it was what I could afford. I have just been going through the archives, and I particularly like this image. I may be wrong but I reckon the price would now be about 4 times what is shown here.If anybody knows the make and model of the auto, or the location of the car lot I would like to know.Hope you like the image!Gerry

    Berber Children

    Two small Berber childen, one shoeless, and wearing dirty dresses sit outside their cave home in Tunisia. This is from 2002 when North Africa was a safer place to visit. I wonder where they are now? I used a Leica M6 and I think this was taken using the 50mm Summicron f2. Gerry

    Ali

    Guarding the local convenience store in the heart of a multi-ethnic community Ali, an immigrant from the Middle East, is proud to be working and contributing to society. Taken with a M9 and 35mm Summarit-M f2.5. Hope you like it! Gerry

  14. Grabbed the yellow foil tube, ripped it open, popped the film into the SWC. Meter to 320, shoot pictures, practicing my scale-focusing technique. Got home, popped the roll out, into the darkroom, "TMax 400 - hmm, HC-110, 4.5 minutes 72°F normal" Developed away. Poured out the developer - looked like a slasher movie - red gore everywhere. What the....? Got the film into the stop bath, and then grabbed for the backing paper in the trash. "KODAK EKTAR 100" (My mistake of course - but gosh-darn Kodak for giving up on the old color-coded individual wrappers. Green for 400 B&W, Red for CN, Purple for Plus-X/Tmax 100. I've loaded and exposed the wrong film before, in the distant past - never unintentionally run a roll through the wrong process before, though.) Went ahead and fixed - there are images there. Dense reddish base, of course. Finished as for B&W, wash and Photoflo. Actually - for underexposed two stops, run through the wrong chemicals for the normal (wrong) time at the wrong temperature - the results are amazingly usable! I wanted B&W, and that's what I got. Not God's gift to the Zone System for tonality, perhaps, but certainly within the functional range for gritty street shots. A bit on the contrasty side - and with ZERO latitude. Shots that were right on the money scanned very well - but 1/2 stop under were really thin on shadow detail. Bit of sludging on some frames - if they were important shots, I'd rewash and use C-41 stabilizer instead of Photoflo for the final bath. Very fine grain. Interesting that Ektar 100, usually known for bright reds, in this case reproduced red/orange/pink very dark (DOGGS kiosk was pink, drink crates red, traffic cone orange).
