What is that guy in the background doing with the woman's bosom?
Copping a feel, of course. It's a weird scene.

Visit at the Tate's in London with a K1000 loaded with FP5+:



This was taken at f2.0 at 1/60s, very low light and I was focusing at the snake, unfortunately it's a little too soft:



The Tate:



Monument outside:



What I like about London is the crazy architecture you can find around:





Cityscape:



And you can find every monument you can imagine:



Family of ducks:



Still, I prefer the Delta 400 and BW400CN as B&W films.

I really like #5, the comp and lighting makes an interesting and somewhat playful image. Thanks!

I must confess that I was fascinated by that sort of beehive cluster of buildings on the Thames and I've taken many pics of them while I was approaching, I didn't post them because I thought it would be ripetitive, but since you appreciated them here there are others:





This is another peculiar building of the area: by the number of CCTV cameras I thought it was a bank, later I found out it was the heeadquartier of the MI6:



Still they are not my favourite pics, in other conditions I feel I could have done better.

I thought so. I suspect that boxes were most of what that lady had on

Just like in "Sky Fall", only in the movie, it got blown up.

Used a Rokinon 650 mm on a tripod, but the wind was kicking. Best of about 12 shots.
Grand Coulee, WA compressed into one frame. Pentax P3n film camera.

My neighbors seem normal, but then I notice stuff like these, and I just gotta wonder. And say to myself, "Crazy cool old people!"



Skull in a flower box??

#2 and #4 seem pretty cool to me. And #3 looks pretty normal this time of year. And no doubt even crazy old people thought they were going to be the exception and not end up being crazy old people when they got old too.

Yep, #3 would be typical for this time of year, but the evidence seems to indicate that the skull lives there, year round.

I am not a 16 year old kid myself anymore, so I get it, it just struck me as cool. For myself, I am obviously on the strange side of normal. They are on the drab side of normal in appearance.

I have not shown these B&W photos on this site -- taken on a trip to Belgium for the WWI 100 year anniversary -- I took three PENTAX bodies --for the B&W I used my P30n loaded with 2007 outdated Fuji Acros 100 I rated at 80 ASA and home-processed in FX15 formula -- I had a Vivitar 283 flash on a sych cord as well.
Through the coach window -- Flanders Fields as they are now -- peaceful farmland -- Yellow-Green filter, 24mm f2.8 SMC Pentax-A lens

Military Cemetery : Yellow-Green filter + 24mm lens

War Horse in Ypres Museum -- Vivitar flash, 35-80mm f4-5.6 SMC Pentax-F lens

St Georges British Church in Ypres, 24mm lens at f2.8, 1/2 second exposure

I have the P30t, and a P3N body, and I am curious as to how you attach a pc cord?? I have never noticed a PC port on mine. I ended up using my radio transmitter with a cord and a couple adapters to fire a remote flash.
What other bodies did you take??
