Tried to pick up whatever fuji 400 neg. shop had other day Colton,goes fast
wound up walkin out with portra 160vc,ektar 100,why wife doesnt like me to shop.
What your doing with it impressive.
Thanks BillM,

I usually shoot Fujicolor 200 for C-41 color film cause I can get it cheap at the local Wal-Mart. Someone gave me 7 rolls of Fujicolor X-TRA 400 recently so this is my first time shooting it. I ran a roll through my SP-F and didn't like the results much but since it was free film, I used it to test the Yashica and quite like the results I got.
You should check your local Wal-Mart for some Fuji X-TRA 400, they have it here and it's pretty cheap, around $8 for four 24 rolls.

I like the hawk photo you posted. Portra 160 seems like a great film.

I got the battery issue figured out on my Yashica. I found an adapter on ebay that allows me to use LR44 type batteries. It fit perfectly and I put 2 energizer 357s in and the meter work perfectly +/- 1/3 stop compared to my Gossen.
I ran a roll of Fujicolor 200 through it to see how the meter work in various situations.
Here's a couple from the roll.


Yashica TL Electro, Yashinon DS 50/1.9, Fujicolor 200



Yashica TL Electro, Yashinon DS 50/1.9, Fujicolor 200


All in all it's a pretty nice camera and the Yashinon DS 50/1.9 seems to perform well. I don't think I would take it over a SPII though

High School Girls

I shot this for a community newspaper covering a high school event with togas as part of the theme. I always thought it was a great capture of youthful femininity. The variety of girlness in the front row starts from the left with a little secret trading, then the coy girl, tongue on upper lip, aware I was taking her picture, the next two sharing something with others behind them, and the excited girl about to clap. Cracks me up. Camera: Leica R4 + 50mm f/1.4 Summilux R lens:

Indoors, the Castro Valley HS gym.

Here's a self portrait I took during my annual (at the time) retreat to Yosemite after hiking up to Old Inspiration Point and finding a spot to meditate for the day:

that's certainly a view worth meditating over, beautiful shot. I'm trying to convince the better half that if we go to SF this year a side trip to Yosemite is on the books. She's not one for hiking though

Thank you. There is much to see in Yosemite that can be driven to, as well as short easy hikes to good spots. If you can visit in September, the park relatively empty. In the Spring it's also not crowded, and far more dramatic in terms of waterfalls, etc. But the summer is a touristy mess.

One more tip, apparently the park absorbed some condos and vacation homes that were privately built, which visitors can now rent from a private company, but they are nonetheless in the park (between the Wawona Hotel and Yosemite Valley). For a very reasonable rate you can have a studio/cabin/house with kitchen, hot tub, and other cool stuff plus privacy. We've stayed there and enjoyed it very much.

If we come at this point it will be late September or the first 2 weeks of october as that is when we normally travel. to late to really book for spring and we never take summer off (too bloody hot for one)

thanks for the tip on the condos
typically we always rent apartments when we travel despite my working in the hotel business (or maybe due to it now as it would be like vacationing at work)
