Lovely, Thomas, and great choice of film. Where is this? How do you find the 6006? Sorry for bringing the "spanish inquisition" but I just bought a Rolleiflex 6008 and am interested to hear user experiences of the 6000-series cameras (and lenses).

This photo is from a series from some of my crazy, extreme photo adventures I  had photographing Mountains "Alpinists " and rock climbers. This is Alpes mountain range which is called   "Le Massive du Mont Blanc", Haût Savoir region  In France.  And this place is a White valley ( La Vallee Blanche - Chamonix ) the most beautiful region You must visit. I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

Thank you, this is in Verona near the Etsch in the old town in 2019. Well the 6006 is a very nice camera with very good results. The lenses are superb, but the camera is quite heavy. For few months I won an auction on Ebay and got a Hasselblad 500CM with a few lenses. It is not so heavy as the Rolleiflex, but I have to put this camera set first to the service to clean the central shutter of the lenses. The Rollei is more robust from my point of view. I think the Rolleiflex 6008 is a very good choice especially with the PQ lenses. Despite the Hasselblad, I kept my Rolleiflex equipment and lent it to my daughter's friend.

Thanks Thomas. I've twice had Hasselblads and never really gelled with them. The Rolleiflex - yes, I hear you, it is heavy! - but it is well balanced and the grip really makes things easy. Anyway, I'm still getting through my first roll and reading the manual as I go, so we'll see how it all pans out. I hope you get your Hasselblad back and running sweetly soon, and look forward to seeing the results. In the meantime, your daughter's friend could post here...

It's truly interesting to see Rog's and Steve's photos appear so near each other. I see distinct similarities. In both it's as if we're being forcibly zoomed in on a small part of a whole, it feels myopic somehow, with little details growing out of proportion and obscuring the reality around. Marvellous work both of you, and really enjoyable to be able to view both near each other like this.

This begs so many questions...Where was this photographed, what is it? Is this young boy really at work? There's a slightly disturbing feel to this image.

Lovely work Thomas. I really like the 'softness' of all the edges and corners. It reminds me of the work of Henry B Goodwin (and coincidentally there's an online auction today of quite a bit of his works).

Sadly the bike is not mine. 

Really nice image! Can't decide, what I've would done: Moved to the left to get more from the bikers as a backgroud or moved to the right to isolate the bike (which looks great in front of this housewall)
Colors and motorbike style are matching really good

ditto. what look like blotches on the wall are reflections off the windows to the left.

Those shadows are really nice!
