AntiFA at a BLM event showing their true colors.

I took two pictures and the one with the better focus/sharpness was spoiled with a person moving into the frame at the last second.




I asked this person how old he was. He said 16. He's not even a tax payer contributing to society but yet he knows the grass is greener with another system.

Yeah, they are grain-size white specs and not too dense fortunately.
Ok. I've had this a couple of times recently too. I find I can live with it as long as it's small liike you describe.

I really like this - a classic layered landscape shot on 35mm film - nice!

First test shot with the original lens that came with my Crown Graphic. It had a sticky shutter when I got it so I wasn't using it. But I finally sent the lens in for a CLA. Here Mr. Steller's Jay posed for peanuts.

Why can't people just stand still long enough for you to check focus, shutter speed and f-stop?

A large format bird shot - that's something different!

WOW! A large format film shot, with thin DoF, of a bird! Now that's impressive!

He stood still just fine. It was me and a slow shutter speed.

He was pretty cooperative standing still after picking up the peanut looking for another which made it easy to prefocus on a spot.

I am still in camera test mode and testing out some of my old girls to make sure (a) they run reliably and (b) I can remember enough of my former skill set to be able to get a good picture. The amount of times lately I have forgotten stuff is worrying though most screw ups are down to be unfamiliar with the various cameras. Like forgetting that I turned off Program mode so the speed its showing me is not the speed its going to shoot at its what it wants me to set the dial too. These were fired off with a Minolta XD7 and an OM1 both running manual - pics of people with 50mm f1.7 lens, pic of dandelions with 35mm. All shot with FP4. Scanned from prints on lo res scanner and then tweaked a bit with Pixelmator and Smart Photo Editor on a Mac.

"I asked this person how old he was. He said 16. He's not even a tax payer contributing to society but yet he knows the grass is greener with another system." He should go there then - I dont think its against the law to travel there - you never know he may like it. Some people do (or at least say they do )

Took one of the 6x7 heavy weights out for my annual freighter shoot out, the distance to the freighter is about 3.5KM. Could not get all the DOF I wanted, as I was down to 1/30 shutter speed already do to the TC & red filter light loss.

6x7 & 400/4 & 2x TC & red filter, shooting Tri-x 400:
