Direct flash from Contax T2, Ilford Delt 400. I like this trashy style with the flash, will try to use it more often.

A wonderful series, Marc. You have found a model who has qualities of both Brigitte Bardot and Jean Shrimpton, and your style here is very much evocative of David Bailey. These things combined, along with your already well-established talent for fashion, lead one to be very excited about where you will go with this style. Have you more from your street walk?

You did it again Earnest. Looks like it is a good study of the images written in a computer language and with hidden scripting on a mirror code to make it more interesting.  

Thanks, Cyril, for picking up on the computer language ploy--just a few decades beyond Kafka and his mirror to the alienation effect of corporate confluence. Oh, my, alliteration of the alienation effect. I hope Phil likes it. Nothing quite so mundane as a field of nothing but ones and zeroes, eh? That's just my nudging in the ribs for Kafka. Corngold's book is for real, though, and it's really interesting how Kafka's business occupation is reflected in his writing.

Cheers,
Rog

At the civic centre subway station I thought I spied Fedora man from above, but he moved too fast to get a sharp picture...

M4-P, 50, Ektar100

Oh, my, I give this an A for awesome, but then after some reflection, I want to give it a B for ballistic or just settle for brilliant. Whatever the vocabulary, which so many times can hardly define the emotional subtext of the visual, this blurred field of action is mesmerizing. I am seeing it printed large, very large, very, very large on a gallery wall, on a museum wall, on a billboard that even risks instigating traffic tie-ups. Bravo. And, yes, Ernst Haas is the man in color (Color Correction, too), you're right, even though he shot horses on the set of The Misfits but not blurred from what I've seen.

Cheers,
Rog

Come along with me for a portrait street walk, where you stop on interesting places to take some photos before you go to another place...

M4, Apo 50, Cinestill bwxx with Iso 400, X-Tol (1:1), 11 min

It was the first time that I used this film and I really like it a lot. Don't ask me why, maybe it is the look-and-feel, can't explain it exactly.

I like it too, and it pushes well, even 2 stops, but I prefer it at box. As for your subject, well she would make any film speed shine!!!! 🙂  great job as always

Some Murano glass-art, gorgeous, and exceptionally clever.

I'm guessing that this lovely piece is now taking pride of place at chez Gary back in NZ?

 I think you have a film working here that would catch the eye of Jean-Luc Godard.

 Cut and print

A story of kodachrome ❤️. I've been rescanning and reprocessing select pictures in order to get a reinvigorated look to them. I've been finding the old kodachromes hold up brilliantly over time. This is one such example - the picture was made during an evening dust storm over the Nile, viewed from the Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan. The colours here are true to the kodachrome original - bearing in mind that this transparency is 32 years old:

Aswan, Egypt 1987

Canon A1, FDn 50mm f1.4, Kodachrome 25

Well, thank you Rog! That is as generous a compliment as I could wish for!

Nah Phil, it was definitely nice, but heavy and I suspect (never checked of course) expensive.

I schlepped a tonne of Hasselblad and Leica gear about on this trip, hauling an equally heavy/expensive lump of art wasn't in the equation.
