Hin, did you check out all the big logs and log furniture in that gallery?
My company SwiftSure Timberworks did all that log work.
Beautiful work Colton. I have always liked the beautiful look of wood in buildings and furniture.

When I built my house a few years back part of the specification was that the lumber would be "real" wood wherever possible, no composite boards, no OSB and no MDF. All of the finish work is naturally finished wood, the cabinets and the trim around the windows, doors, etc. The fireplace mantle is a thick slab of figured maple and the cabinets are maple. He floors (where they are not carpet) are bamboo hardwood, including the stairway.

The wraparound porch is decked in cedar, and all the soffits are done in white pine.

Thanks.
Sounds like a nice house.

Apparently they were made with both Schneider and Rodenstock lenses, but the Rodenstock version was never sold in North America.
This was the first one I've seen with the Rodenstock.

Nice! I recently got a Retina IIa with the Schneider 50mm f2, just finished shooting my first roll.
Have you shot any film with it yet?

Not a bad camera:



Here's it's little brother:



And a few more:

Rolleicord Vb



Spotmatic and Fuji G690 BL (sold, the lens was great but it was not exactly as pleasure to shoot with)

Leica M2 with Canon Serenar 85mm f/2, Voigtlander Color Skopar 35mm F/2.5, and Pentax SV with SMC-Takumars: 1:1.4 50mm and 1:3.5 28mm.

This is a cool kit for a couple reasons. first, it's fairly small. Second, it's totally meterless. Third, the glass is all fantastic, and fourth, I have 28-35-50-85 focal lengths, which is close to my ideal 24-35-50-90.




This is a recent pawn shop find. A fully working (both shutters, glass is beautiful, RF needs adjustment but works) 3 1/4 x 4 1/4" Speed Graphic. My Graflex is apparently also a 3.25 by 4.25 but has had a 4x5 back grafted on. I may try the same trick here. Cost me all of $50.




And by what I can only assume is popular demand, The Toko 4x5 brass and wood field camera.

Always fun to get back a first roll from a camera (provided it worked correctly )
Please share.
I'm scanning the first roll from my Kodak Retina IIa at the moment will post some results soon.
