jt—Wow, what a mood—like climbing down into the mines of Moria or something. This shot also exemplifies Cartier-Bresson's quip: "Sharpness is a bourgeois concept."
Thank´s. (cartier-Bresson was right — and deeply entangled with the bourgeois). In fact, the shot is taken late night in Port D´Essaouira (Morocco). Down below (in between) the two castel walls there are workshops of different sorts. These men are carpenters at work. There is another reference to this place. Orson Welles chose this place as the scene for his Othello movie.

Yes it's an old fishing community over 100 years old.

I never knew Finn Slough while in Vancouver, I shouldnt be, but I am just a touch surprised to learn of it. I thought most of the Finnish population lived on islands further North. Such as the village of Sointula.

Scanned this earlier
MZ-5n, DA*55, maybe Tmax or TriX 400.
I love the shape of the leaves surrounding the plane. That's what caught my attention. Nicely done.

Here is one more from that cold (-10C) february morning. The first was shot at f/8 and a half and this one at 8 or 11, handheld (and I forgot to note at what shutterspeed? 1/125 or 250, I think). I have an extender for the battery, but the real problem with the cold was loading new rolls because of stiff fingers..
This is incredible.

I’ve lived in Vancouver since 1964 and only heard of it a couple years ago from a lady at work who lives in Richmond. (It’s close to No 4 Road and Steveston Hwy.)

Next time you’re in Vancouver you can check it out, it’s a great spot for shooting.

I certainly will. When I lived there I was not so photographically inclined, but now I'd spend an afternoon just wandering Steveston (if my wife let me that is)

Yeah you can combine the two for a perfect day trip from Vancouver. I also go to Steveston once or twice a year to shoot the fishing boats.

On Sunday I bought one of these:



It is a 6x7 120 film shooting National Graflex Series II from somewhere between 1934 and '41, with a Bausch & Lomb Tessar 1c 75mm f/3.5 lens. So I put some Neopan 400 in it, and though not many came out (mainly due to operator error!) here are the results. HC-110, Epson 4490

Amazing images from a 40's era camera! That WLF looks like a shopping bag, haha.

I didn't see Nesster at the last CBA anonymous meeting. I guess this is what he's been up to. The OOF rendering of that lens is interesting.
