One for Adam following a recent conversation.

 

Milford Sound in the deep south of New Zealand, Fiordland.  It's a gorgeous place but if you don't take and liberally use military grade insect repellant the sandflies (small, stinging black fly) will eat you alive all year round.  It's a very wild place and nature wins here quite often.

 

Pentax 67 with Pentax 45/4 wide angle lens and Fujichrome Velvia 50.

 

 

Pete.

Saturation rules!  The intensity of Velvia's blues are always amazing (and some might say a tad OTT!).

Yes Velvia's colours are certainly intense.  

 

I'm disappointed by the resolution that pictures posted here are (understandably) restricted to because when I look at the 6x7 transparency through a loupe on my lightbox I can see each leaf separately in fine detail but the jpg and forum algorithms mush them together and the breathtaking clarity of medium format film photography is sadly lost.  Still, better that than nothing, eh?

 

Pete.

Know what you mean - quite a while ago I uploaded some 6x9cm Velvia 100 photos and whilst the 16 x 12inch prints I produced made the most of the transparency size, on the forum they did not really jump out as being from a larger format.  However, at least here we have the opportunity to post them amongst like-minded people and I'm very grateful to the forum for indulging us!

Two images that encapsulate photographic determination (madness?!).  The subjects must be completely bemused as why someone is pointing a camera at them in such dire weather.  However, your activities allow us to experience ( at some remove) just how bad the conditions were.  Bravo!

 

Here's one from the strong snow blizzard that we had in NYC last week.  People were engulfed in snow, looking like they entered into hyperspace as if they are in a Star Wars movie :)

More excellent minimalism!

Thank you Henry, and happy new year to you as well!  As far as colour goes, I shot one roll of Ektar last year and that was all, compared to over 100 rolls of B&W.  I will likely shoot a bit of colour this year but most of my work will stay B&W.

 

Here are a few more from Kyoto.

Very sad to read about this. However, no doubt you photos will be treasured by family and friends.

OK, this one's a bit difficult. I worked with Janet. She was a patient as well. And now she has died of lung cancer, as one of the unlucky 10% who never smoked.

She was one of those lovely people, so common here in a relatively poor rural community, who would do anything for you if you asked. It was my pleasure to know her for thirty years, and my honour to care for her as a physician. I still go up to the hospital when I hear that one of my old friends is dying and go in to visit them before they go out of the back door. This visit was one of the harder ones, which is why it has taken me a long time to catch up with her passing. So long, Janet.

 

Doc.

Pete,

 

to resize  photos for internet, I use ON1 Resize 10 software, a tad time consuming but worth it.

Amazing, Brendan.  Love seeing your stuff.  Great results with the pushed HP5.  What were your thoughts regarding using this film rather than Tri-X or another film stock?

Thank you Henry, and happy new year to you as well!  As far as colour goes, I shot one roll of Ektar last year and that was all, compared to over 100 rolls of B&W.  I will likely shoot a bit of colour this year but most of my work will stay B&W.

Nice one, Keith.  Love those cows :)

Curious cattle. One more from my latest roll of Tri-X (Hasselblad 500C, 80mm Planar).

 

A really good one, Steve.  The picture on the staircase sets a mysterious mood and the way the eyes are drawn up the staircase execute on this mood very effectively.  A keeper for sure!

It was great to meet up with Adam while he was briefly in London.  We had a nice couple of pints, a very pleasant chat, and met a film and tv star, Christopher Fairbanks (British members will remember him as the character Moxey from the very popular 1980's tv series "Auf Wiedersehen, Pet").  It would have been nice to go out shooting but it wasn't really the night for it.  Maybe next time.

Pete - Probably not my first choice film stock for a portrait, but Adox Color Implosion it'll have to be :) :)
