A couple of year ago we were invited to visit Beijing and Shanghai. This picture is in a small and peaceful park close to Tomorrow Square – where we stayed in an impressive Marriott hotel.
 
Shanghai is an amazing place. The energy on the streets is indescribable. And so is the obvious wealth. As is the size of the city. When we got off the plane there were about 1000 taxis waiting for a fare to the city.

But you wouldn't guess any of that looking at this serene and peaceful shot Michael. Lovely.

I'm currently taking part in a challenge on Twitter, the challenge was; buy a camera for £2 or less and the cheapest roll of film you can and see what you can do.

 

I bought a Canon Sure Shot 105 zoom for $1, I then went to my local camera store and bought the cheapest roll of film they had. I spent a week shooting that roll of film, I'll post a few photos over the next few days, I was was not expecting amazing results from the combination and in that regard I was not disappointed, red-eye and missed focus abounded, but the important thing was I had fun and I'm actually happy with what I managed to get. :)

 

The first two photos are at my daughter's wedding and a baseball game.

Good on Ya.

Begs the question, why do we fork out great gobs of cash for our gear then?

I'm as guilty.

Because there is actually a huge quality difference between $1 and huge gobs of cash, that $1 Canon was the worst point and shoot I have ever used, slow zoom, slow wind and the longest shutter lag I have ever come across, you push the button then set a calendar event for when you expect it to actually fire.

 

As I said, I did enjoy the challenge but I was very happy to start carrying my XA2 again as soon as the film was done, there is a reason some point and shoot cameras cost $1 and some cost $100 and higher.

I've been very interestedly reading and viewing paulmac's interesting discourse and excellent images on the Black and White Images thread à la manière de Bill Brandt. Because the following was not taken on a Leica I can only post it here.

 

Thinking of Bill Brandt's famous and wonderful "Top Withens, West Riding, Yorkshire 1945" picture, I took this picture in 2010 thinking of it as a kind of homage to the great photographer:

Man, you definitely have the 'eye' demonstrated time and time again. This here is a brilliant study showing the visual power of lines, vertical and diagonal, plus that circle all in one frame.

Thanks. I had read quite a bit, some of it not very complimentary, on utility of Rolleikin (device allowing use of 35mm film in Rolleiflex/Rolleicord.) Found one at pretty low price and installed. I can see disadvantage some might have found; but, find that it is kind of fun. If you like format of old Olympus Pen SLRs, it is very much like that. I think I will leave it in the Rolleiflex 3.5 for a few rolls.

 

Best,

 

Wayne

Kodak T-Max 3200 -- at Smoke Jazz -- more rolls to shoot, just a first attempt, like it so far, like Tri-X without the push and able to shoot 3 stops faster, win-win as they say
