Mmm, it seems to be full of Leicas. Could he be a member of this Forum?

Looks like he's zeroing in on the Institut de France on the other side of the Pont des Arts bridge over the Seine River seen from an archway entrance to the Central Square of the Palais du Louvre.

Very nice shot. Did you introduce yourself?

Thanks for the comments, guys.

 

Did I introduce myself to the girl carrying my Benro "Travel Angel" tripod? Naww, Stu, didn't need to--I've been married to her for thirty-five years and am just getting her to help carry my photo stuff so I'm feeling lucky.

 

Here in the U.S. I take my film to CVS/Pharmacy for development, get one print each and they scan the roll to CD in around an hour. The image files I get are around 850kb each, 1895x1272 pixels, or approx. 2.4 mp jpgs, 8-bit color, 72ppi. The first thing I do with each image I want to work with is convert to tiff (and save) and then make any modifications to that file. I agree, the quality has been pretty good for the 900x600p files I upload here. Any image I want to get serious with and print out in a large size on my Epson R2880 I will scan on my Minolta 5400.

 

Whoops, gotta go, that mysterious guy with the bulging Billingham is picking up the pace from the Louvre, crossing the Seine on "Artist's Bridge" heading toward the Institute of France like he once studied there, taking carefully framed shots along the way with what looks like an 'R4'--and it appears he knows Paris intimately. Surely he knows about this Forum. I will press on to try to catch up with him and solve this mystery if no one here can guess who he is...

Don ,

Thank you for having posted "the man with the Billingham"

In fact, it's me....

Absent due to work and sorry to answer now ....

I could see Don and his wife in Paris during their trip in Europa !

We spent some time together and Don was well equipped with cameras...

Good times indeed exclusively reserved for photography

, and we visited some famous places of Paris , like

"the Louvre" (first photo),or "the Pont des Arts"(second photo) over the river Seine...

... pictures are very well treated and post processed and they trace out this way of parisian life

Good time together and good memories of a LUF friend

Kind regards to Joan and You

Henry

Ahh--mystery solved--just like in the movies!

 

Hi, Henry--

 

Joanie and I will never forget meeting you in Paris and how kind you were to show us some really Parisian sights. Practically every day we see something that reminds us of that clear and bright and happy day (and night, when you took us to best photo sites of Champs Elysees, the Arch de Triumph, Sainte-Marie-Madeleine church, and last but not least, the Eiffel Tower bathed in lights). We'll truly always have Paris.

 

Thank you again and again,

Don & Joan

      Because of the covid-19 lockdown I am unable to go out on to the streets to photograph, not that there are any people around. I am therefore still working through my archives, and came across this image from Paris in 2002. Taken with a Leica M6, 50mm Summicron f2 and using Kodak T400CN film (which I used to love!). I hope you like it.
      I have also been revamping my web site using Adobe Portfolio, which is part of the Lightroom/Photoshop package, and like the results so far, although it is a work in progress. Take a look here

      Sharing my short article shooting Paris with classic Leica X1: https://www.juliuspictures.com/blog/2020/11/13/exploring-paris-with-leica-x1
      I found this little old camera is amazing. I hope you all enjoy it.

      Paris has always been a special place for street photography for me and, although I haven't been there for far too long, I try and emulate  the work of its' great photographers such as HC-B, Robert Doisneau and (dare I say) Peter Turnley. For me it is like fishing on a great trout stream in that you are always bound to have a good catch.
      This was taken in 2000 using my M6 and Kodak T-Max 400 film home processed. I think it was with the 50mm Summicron lens, although I can't be 100% sure.

      From my 'Paris' portfolio. Taken on an M6 using Kodak T400CN film commercially processed. I am sorry but all lens details have been lost, but probably a 50mm Summicron f2.

      Just trying a different way of copying pictures to post on the forum.
      Normally I would switch on my old desktop computer which is connected to my old scanner  and scan a darkroom print. Then transfer the copied picture to my newer laptop, which is connected to the internet unlike the old desktop. Then I can post it.
      with these pictures I have just re-photographed the print on the I pad I am posting them from. I think the results are ok for viewing here? The I pad picture files are a bit too big to load up three together.
       
      Paris in the mid 1970’s. Leica M3 with 35mm Summaron.
