I've broken out the Diafine lately so I don't have to worry about temperature control during the heat wave we've been having here in the Eastern US. Added bonus: I can develop different types of film in the same batch.

Here's a beautiful old Land Rover, fully tricked out for off-roading, that's been parked in my neighborhood for months (note stack of parking tickets under wiper). P3n, Pentax-M 35mm f/2, Arista Premium 400 @ 1000.
I want that aluminum car!!! That Land Rover is in a very good condition and it seems that it has visited many beautiful place on the earth. Could you tell me what (state/country) on the plate number is?

Here are a few more from the Chamonix 4x5 view camera

Columbia Gorge, Backwater Inlets


Caltar II-N 90/6.8, Arista.EDU Ultra 100 @ISO 200, FG-7 12' @ 70F


Tumbling Stream


Caltar II-N 90/6.8, Arista.EDU Ultra 100 @ISO 200, FG-7 12' @ 70F


The Arista.EDU Ultra 100 is pretty nice stuff, though I am having trouble finding the sweet spot for holding the shadows while avoiding blowout in the highlights. I have generally been able to use FG-7 at about double the box speed and get great latitude. Not so with this film. (Did I hear someone say pyro???).

Here's an old one, showing how with digital processing you can get good B&W with color film. Fuji 160S in a Voigtlander Bessa 66 from '37
Wow, an old-school Bessa. Looks plenty sharp and contrasty - not bad for a 70+ year old camera.

I've been trolling eBay for a decent, not too expensive folder - a Bessa or Isolette, since Ikontas are like gold. No luck so far.

Unfortunately I can't quite afford the new Bessa III...

Thank you! The negative was difficult to scan, but I like the results.

Not sure about the origin of the front plate that's visible in the photo. In the right side is a number plate from the Camel Trophy race which went through Central America - this car must have run it. In the back it's got a regular Pennsylvania plate.

There's a guy in my neighborhood - Skytop Rover - who imports very cool old Rovers, mostly ex-British Army. There's a good chance this is one that he imported.

I had trouble retaining a sense of texture in the blurred water without totally losing the shadows. I could bump the shadows, but then they looked muddy. As it was, I compromised by letting the highlights block up a little and accepting very deep shade for the shadows.

I am still working out how best to process this film. With appropriate development resulting in higher shadow density, I might have had more to work with.

Well it is lunch time here. I think I will head out to Pharos and buy one of these

ME Super smc m50f/1.4 and Ultramax 400 shot wide open

These are so bad for you, but taste so good. I can no longer finish this, but when I was younger no problem.
