50/1.8AI Portra 400 (EI800) X1

This is fantastic, Philip. Took me a moment to work out what was going on... a sense of mystery pervades... striking and compelling.

No Go Mountain
M-A APO 50 & Summilux-M 50  Portra 400

This, for me, was a clear instance of (I forget the technical term) seeing something that is not there. Mount Rushmore, in this case. It was not until I came back and looked a second time that I realized it had happened to me.  I cannot believe George, Abe, Teddy, and Tom are not there.

This thread is moving really fast. Coming back after 10 days I´m completely struck by the amount and the quality of the pictures. Of all the pictures.  So please excuse the space I claim with my answers and comment...

great color contrast. I think the 135 is underrated-you show how to use it.

Ouch, drama and pain ! Or is it passion and fever ?

And a new scanner Adam! Since I am more or less completely analog, I needed a scanner and found the Braun FS-120  (also for medium format). It is much easier than I thought and it makes live much easier....

The starling: Generally despised by the public.......and by myself; as I move through this life, I have to re-evaluate things, the starling being one of them. It is a wonder of the animal kingdom.... Sort of a feathered cockroach.......and unashamed. :)

I can´t recognize if it´s really a starling--however: great color space. Very nice indeed

Found Photo-notes
M-A APO 50 & Thambar-M  ADOX Color Implosion & Portra 400

A filmmaker's Photo-notes for a film he didn't make, unfortunately. There was a report about radioactivity, but it was unverified, the report and the radioactivity. Look at the grass. Weeping. It was more a case of too much fiction leaking into the present tense without subtitles. If there were subtitles, even the text would be suspect, and nothing usual to be rounded up. There was, however, a restaurant napkin scribbled with a note about Tacita Dean's preoccupation with green flash. All, very shady.

Wow, Rog, this is really impressive. And the legend you supply is absolutely convincing.

Chroma Vignette
M-A APO 50  ADOX Color Implosion, Portra 400, E100

Thomas Bewick was an engraver known for the end-grain wood engraving he used in carving vignettes he popularized in the British Romantic period. The vignette style he innovated, an illustration with blurred edges, is significant in that it echoes the indeterminacy of British Romantic fragment poetry, verse that was purposely ambiguous in beginnings and endings. The hallmark of the fragment poem was to prompt the reader to create in the imagination that which was implied or missing. It is interesting to note the parallel with the photograph vignette, as opposed to optical vignetting.

Rog, I completely agree, no matter if it is poetry or photography, the should always be ambiguity and  enough space for imagination. Your color fields do this perfectly on an abstract level, others, say @benqui show the same in their field.

One of my new interests is "commercial voyeurism."  This is a dry run with Ektar.  There is tons of detail and you can see some of the people very clearly in the offices and what they are doing.  The Ektar was just too slow, though, and many of the people were removed due to the motion.  Despite the long exposure (2 minutes +) it was surprising to see so many people in good sharpness at their desks.  Slaves they are!!!  I am thinking that I should aim for the early onset of the sunset when there is still a bit more outside light and slide film with good reciprocity failure tolerance, like Provia 100F, so that I can expose for the highlights and get a much faster exposure.

More to come... :)

I've been revisiting some of my earlier Kodachromes. Kodachrome X, which became Kodachrome 64, was my main colour film through my early shooting days of the 1970s. The building in this picture has been replaced by a far more modern one, but I'm pleased to say the sign survived:

fantastic stray cat. Are you channeling Raymond Chandler? The hard boiled private eye waiting behind the reflecting window-waiting for the mysterious and beautiful woman asking for more than one favour ? Now it´s your turn, @benqui😀
