Great shots Phil. I love the visual impact of the first one.

Minnesota Zephyr, getting hauled away at present so no more pics like this ever again. I think its the way the blue paint on the nose faded to a slightly pale metallic that gave it the odd HDR sorta look.


An old truck/sign for Cassanova.


I blew the lighting on the landscape orientation version so I had to crop this from the portrait one. And yes its crooked but no its not fixable, the sidewalk is a hill with a slope (car is facing downhill) and the windows don't agree with the roof line or the sign as to what level is so something is always off.

Nice series of shots. Hope the train is going to a good home. They don't make them looking like that anymore.

There are potential buyers but no cash exchanged yet. The whole train would need a very expensive restoration, but its complete and essentially functional (they are using one of the engines to shift it around for crane loading). Its sitting on an isolated bit of rail and getting moved by truck down the road through town to the nearest live rail spur. Quite a bit more to the story, just look up Minnesota Zephyr on google. I'm leaving right now to take pictures of them loading the 230,000 pound locomotives onto trucks, then I'll have to be up at like 3am if I want shots of them going through town.

Here are a few more with my first roll of HP5+. Many are over-exposed, I'll need to take more care with exposure in the future.

Lots of nice shots over the last week, here are my latest entries from a trip to Seattle Centre in June.

Ah! Ha! Another RR 80s user. I have 100' in the fridge, and a couple of regular rolls too, but have not been shooting much lately. Beautiful stuff to work with. What dilution, times, and ISO are you using with the HC-110?

Hi Steve. I am addicted to the way this film handles. Usual process here is dilution-H for 14 or 15 minutes at 20 degrees, exposed at box speed and metered for the shadows. What do you find works?

I have been souping in Edwal FG-7 1+15 @ ISO 160, but have not been not been particularly happy with the results. The contrast is a little harsh. My plan is to do as you have done and use HC-110, dilution H at ISO 200 per the Le Duc article (http://www.maco-photo.de/files/images/The_Rollei_RETRO_80s_AJ.pdf). I will post when I finally get around to shooting again...(been recovering from a bit of shoulder surgery)...
