Jussi, I want points for recognizing McSorley's from the ketchup bottles . Had my suspicions confirmed as I scrolled down. Nice series. I miss the cheap BW400CN 3 packs I used to get at Walmart. They're still carrying Fuji's consumer films in 400 and 200 asa, but have quit carrying Kodak. I was looking through the archives the other day and realized how much I enjoy the photos I've shot with that film.CVS carries single 36 exp. rolls, but at a grossly inflated price and it never goes on sale. it's easier to pick up a roll of TriX at my local photo store. Plus I still have a roll of Acros in my fridge.

Best,
Kevin

Took a trip to the Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture this summer and I just got around to developing. Here's roll one, frame one of Acros in HC110:

While planning another trip to the coast, I reviewed last years shots and decided to scan one in that I didn't the fist time around.

That was screaming out "medium format" even before I'd scrolled down to camera details. Great shot with the detail you'd expect

Particularly like the second shot. The sidewalk looks overexposed but I suppose you exposed for the cycles which look just fine.

It was my first time using the Retina, and also was using a cheap old Kalimar light meter. And, it was a really bright day, with 400 speed film, and a camera with a max shutter speed of 1/500 .Next time I'll be a little more careful with the exposure, and I'd really like to get a better meter someday too. I did really enjoy shooting with it though, as old as it is, it is in fantastic shape, and as far as I can tell, everything works perfectly on it.

Here she is....My father bought it at a garage sale years ago, I am not sure if he ever used it.

Thanks. The post your medium format has turned into a digital thread with so many people having the 645D now. It's nice to have a thread that celebrates BW film.

thanks for posting the Retina, it may be my favorite 35mm camera of them all. Unfortunately my IIa locked up, so I'm left with a IIc

Taken just after sunrise on the US580 near Altamont Pass with a KX and a K-series 50/1.4 on Ilford HP5+. Sadly, there was no McSorley's or grilled cheese available.
That is an interesting interpretation of the scene. It's really moody.

Better late than never. Cute shoot. Did she have to stop texting on phone for a minute for you to take that. That looks like a good push for that film. It still retains a good tone range. Last week I found a roll that I shot about 15 years ago hidden away in a utility bag I haven't touch for that long. I guess I should develop it.
