Frank, your portraiture (and your photography in general) rocks. This series of the monks is great - and the last one is priceless . Thanks for sharing.

Best,
Kevin

@ Frank

Thank you for the kind comments. It's a rare occasion when I get him to look at the camera!

You always seem to make Reala look so good! Everyone of these guys have great faces with lots of character and I agree with Kevin, that last one is priceless. The little heart above the focus light is a nice touch!

P.S. I haven't forgot about that print I offered you, just PM me if you decide you'd like something printed.

Very alert eyes and I love that hair! What was this developed in, the coarse grain looks very nice here.

Wow, I can't compete with that stunning monk photo, but I did enjoy street shooting in Spain more than just about any other photography I did. Thank you, Javier, for the inspiration.

Many of my shots can't be posted on this part of the forum, because they are digital, but they are Pentax. However, Many of my favorites were from my little Olympus XA2. (Sorry, Pentax) This has to be one of the best street shooters ever. No one ever notices you. Fuji Pro 400H also has to be one of the greatest street shooting films, as well. Here's one to start:

Thanks for your comments. I just love those Reala film

I almost forgot the print stuff. Will try to get my kids out over the weekend and take some good photos so I can have a big print of their current sizes/ages. They grow up way too fast!

I love street photos too, actually most time when I'm taking film photos, I'd like to bring one of my favorite film cameras (either LX or Super Program) to some of my favorite streets here in Singapore, Little India or Chinatown. They look different every time I go there.

A couple more from down the street in Granada. I like the pattern in the last one.

Received my new to me Asahi Pentax S1a today, and ran a roll of Kodak Gold 200 through it. Used my Super Tak 35 3.5 for these photos. Everything seems to be fine. Nothing artistic here, just some shots in the neighborhood..

Here is the camera and the meter I used.

Thanks. Glad you like these photos too



Here are a few street photos I took quite a while ago with LX and K35/2 on T-Max 400. Looks a bit too grainy, but I seldom use ISO400 film ...

Frank, nice B&W and the Reala shots of the Monk are phenomenal.

Here's one from my first troll through my (new to me) K2.
