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

Nephew - Pentax 6x7, Takumar 105/2.4 on Foma 400 pushed 1 stop. I actually exposed this at 640iso and developed at 800. It seems like shadows get crashed easily when pushing Foma, but the scene was pretty contrasty as well.

This Foma roll comes from a specific batch with an antihalo layer too hard to wash away correctly (producing thousands of micro white spots). Foma actually was very kind and replaced the rolls with good ones, but I don't see why the "bad" ones should be just garbage. 

I have decided to order a new lens for the Pentax 6x7: a 75mm f4.5 (35mm equivalent). This might sound like a blasphemy for the super takumar 105mm lovers, but I want something wider and not radioactive to carry around with the kids.

In my early teens, "MC" and I would run our muskrat traps and then trudge through the fields to Gatherd's Corner (now long gone,) to chew the fat with whoever was there. Often times P. Fleck would be there. P Fleck was a bit of an eccentric, successful old farmer. What everybody who new him remembers is that he drove a Cadilac, but used it just like most other farmers used a pickup truck, hauling hay bales and small livestock in the back seat. It smelled like a barnyard in that Cadillac. Pete would give us a ride to anywhere we needed to go. Widows down, of course. Looking at this sign, I relived the magic of those years. It reminded me, no matter what has happened during all these years, I will always be that hick kid, at heart.

Thank you so much Rog for your very kind words. It is a very great privilege to have a drive-in theatre in the vicinity, and it has become a place I'll often go when I want some photographic inspiration. Not when the movies are playing, mind you - I find the whole concept of a drive-in theatre during the daytime quite fascinating. I should actually go along and see a movie, as I'd hate for this one to go the same way as so many others, at least before its time.

When you speak of the impact of Sugimoto's wonderful pictures (not to mention my favourite, Edward Hopper! In fact I have had that very painting, “New York Movie”, as my computer's desktop image for some time now :).) I remembered I'd taken the following picture a few years ago at the same theatre (same screen even) for a book my wife and I were producing. Probably the last time I saw a movie there (gulp!). From memory, the movie was called "Maid In Manhattan" and as I recall it was pretty dreadful:

What happened to the pillars with two speakers on each side (which often did not work) ? This photo though, and the earlier one, is a happy reminder of times past.

While on the theme, I love the way photo's are often a prompt to memory and enjoyed yours.

HI, nice images, I never thought, fomapan 400 might be that good at grain (for ISO 400 quite fine grain in my opinion.) What did you develop the film with? xtol?

Hi, thanks. It is grainy! Being 6x7 probably it is less noticeable. I developed it in HC-110 Dil B.
