Nissan Skyline R32? I can't tell, is it right-hand drive?


Steve
Yes, R32 GT-R. It is right hand drive.

Only time I've ever seen no one around the Brandenburg Gate was when the wall was up. (For obvious reasons ) The Gate was in East Berlin, with the back part facing West Berlin and then the wall behind that. So the view from the West was not very good, your shot was from the better looking East side.
I was amazed & irritated at how many people would look at the camera, and then stand directly in front of it and less than a metre or two away. Not even "in the frame" so much as "blocking all of it".

I've got some night shots from the western side that are relatively people free, but the scans still need a bit of work before I'm happy with them.

Better than all the rats here in Vancouver, I think?
My neighborhood's been taken over by squirrels. We have lots of tall trees, and they are everywhere. Tree rats are all they are. Cute little tree rats. Don't ever let them gnaw a way into your attic. They can do huge amounts of damage.

I just got my Pentax SV back from a trip to see Eric, and am currently about 2/3 way through a "test" roll in it. Yesterday, I was going through photos I made with the SV, and I decided to rescan this frame from 2011. This was the 2nd frame I shot with this camera, right after I first got it.

I think the fact that you have to work out the exposure yourself (whether with an external meter, or otherwise), seems to help with the quality of each frame from a meter-less camera. On the other hand, that lack of convenience can make the roll of film seem much more difficult to finish...

It can definitely help you slow down at first and think about the photo more. Between my 67 and the SV, I definitely learned a lot about reading light and shooting with no meter at all. In 2011, I started having more trouble using my hands, and I couldn't really operate my external meter, so I just learned to shoot Sunny 16. After awhile it kinda becomes 2nd nature and doesn't really slow you down at all. I just looked (out of curiosity) and pretty much every photo I've done so far in 2018 was done using an unmetered camera, and maybe 2% were metered using an external meter. I do have some shots on unfinished rolls in my Pentax 645 and Contax G2 that were shot with Aperture Priority AE...

I've been shooting using my "mind-meter" more and more as well, though not nearly to the extent you do. It's rather freeing in a way.
I also thinks it helps that you know Ektar like the back of your hand at this point.

Hehe... knowing the film you're using really well definitely helps... and Ektar is kinda like having a variable speed 25-400 ISO film.
Oddly (for me) I haven't shot much Ektar this year... I've been shooting a lot of Fuji C200 and Superia 400, and more B&W film.
