'67 Mustang, shot with a '65 Zeiss

Once upon a time, the building was a service station, and I thought it mad a pretty cool period looking backdrop - as it most certainly would have been old in 1967 too - for these shots.
These are too cool - old car, older camera, and even older building. I like the second shot best.

I really like this shot. I think it's all the detail combined with the vertical lines of the building against the diagonal lines of the cables. You're making me wish I could take my 645 with me when I go to NY in a few weeks.

Thanks for the kind words. Going out for a drive to take these shots was a lot of fun.

The size of those ship's props can really be amazing.

Yes, those are nearly 18' across, and the ship would have been fitted with four of them designed to push her to a maximum speed of 28.5 knots (32.79mph).

This is a very cool shot. I have been trying to figure out how you took it, and where from, even since you posted it.

2nd best day of my life.

So yesterday was probably the 2nd best day of my life. If you want to know what the first was...ask my wife.

I decided to go to a thrift store close to my house to sniff out some cameras. They didn't have much...a pile of cheap point-and-shoots, and a Yashica T4. I casually picked it up, shot a couple of shots around the store with the film that had been left in it, and then casually asked the staffer how much he wanted for it. He laughed and said, "That? $2."

Then I went to the darkroom at a local university. I've never been in a darkroom before, though I've been shooting film for a long time. A friend showed me around, and we developed 2 rolls of tri-x that we pushed to 1600. Both rolls just came out killer--and then we went into the enlargement room and started printing. Wow. Life changing.

We printed till 1 AM, and I printed some negatives I had posted here previously (Tri-X from my friend's wedding). It was definitely a memorable day

Anyway, here's my new Yashica with its "brother", the Contax T2.



And here are the prints we made last night.



I just had to share.

Are you hand holding that 300mm on the 6x7 shot?
