With virtually no photography under ny belt in the last few months I've been experimenting with the jpeg settings in camera, initially on my Leica D-Lux typ 109. These are some results from the monochrome photo style setting with some tweaks to contrast. They have had minimal processing in GIMP...
Halloween has started to take root. Fall starts 9/22, so please feel free to share any images related to Halloween in 2020. Could be interesting to see how a COVID halloween is different than other years!
I'll start off:
3 from a visit to Yellow Springs Ohio
A few weeks ago I went to Los Ebanos, TX to get shot of the international ferry that crosses the Rio Grande between the US and Mexico. This is the last hand pulled cable ferry on the Rio Grande--and some say in the US. There are full customs stations on both sides of the river. This ferry, which...
So last night one of my favorite singer/songwriters held a performance. I bought a ticket and logged in for the 45 minute show. Since it was the first time I'd seen her live, I had to take photos, yes?
Even had a blurry shot or two just as in a non-virtual concert.
It was an odd feeling and...
So, I love just going out and trying to find opportunity for image creation. I don't always succeed and at times I can get on some peoples nerves. By some people I mean my wife, whom I drug out with me today in 15F (-9 for the rest of the world) temperatures but we ended up at a coffee shop...
These are with the G85, 12-60kit and L. monochrome turned all the way up to 11.

Here are a few shots with Ilford Delta 100 taken in Sofia, Bulgaria with my Minolta XD. Starting with a couple of shots of the Museum of Sofia, formerly the city's public bathouse.
Just across the street is the spot where the hot spring water that used to feed the bathhouse is still being...
I see a thread for this film in the Colour Film Showcase but I assume that now there is a section specifically for B&W Film I should post this here.
Here are a few scenes from Sofia, Bulgaria a couple of weeks ago when the snow was falling. Shot on Delta 400 with a Minolta CD and Rokkor MD...
Nothing extraordinary here except for the contrast in sharpness between the puddle and the ground. I haven't used the A7 much at all, but I suppose the shallow dof of FF also applies to the odd focus of a reflection in a puddle. Any comments?
I think Kevin has set up this new section, so apologies if there is already a thread for Acros 100.
I took my old Agfa Isolette II for a stroll around the garden, trying Acros 100 out in 120 for the first time. Developed by AG Photo Lab, scanned on a CanoScan 8800F using Vuescan, minor tweaks...
A few photos taken at this years Fort Ross festival held in July. Yep I'm slow at getting to these. I have been a couple of times just wondering around taking the odd photo. A mix of 35mm film and digital.
