Expired Boots 400 ISO film, Braun Paxette rangefinder. The streak of pink in the middle makes this the last time I buy cheap film off eBay...

Processed a roll of Legacy Pro 400 yesterday and went to scan today...NOT!!! The "curl beast" attacks again. The curl is so bad (both directions) that the V700 film holders pop up and will not stay shut. Some time under several books and maybe I can do something with them. Perhaps by tomorrow I will have something to share?


Steve

(...wishing the Nikon 5000 ED was working since it manages the curlies a little better...)

Go to Italy and buy a couple of bricks? Alternatively, some of the cheap Chinese stuff (Lucky brand?) might do as well.


Steve
I would love to go to Italy! I'll keep it in mind if I ever do...
I do have some rolls of Lucky colour film actually. Apart from the film base scratches, it seems to be reasonable stuff. Probably about time to shoot it!

Edit: That must be some nasty curl for the V700 holders to not stay shut! Curl in two directions - I hardly wish that on anybody. Hope the books sort it out. Seems I have had good luck with the book method lately myself.

p.s. Shot more Pan-X this weekend, will hopefully have something to share soon.

Very nasty curl. A few hours under the books seems to have helped, but I was able to get the Nikon to cooperate and will likely have something later today.

Should anyone doubt the quality of the Zuiko optics on the Trip 35 or XP2. Good work David!

Leaning a Little to the Right

As many of you know, I am not one to keep my cameras level, especially when shooting with the rangefinders. This last roll through the Kiev-4A illustrates that nicely, though I would hope that I would balance it out a bit next time with a few that lean to the LEFT!

All taken with Legacy Pro 400 exposed at ISO 800 and processed in Edwal FG-7 (1+15) 13 minutes at 21 C with standard agitation except for the chicken which was exposed for ISO 400 and was somewhat overexposed as a result.


Area of Refuge?


Kiev Helios-103 53/1.8

This sign is at a university campus near my home. The "Area of Refuge is a section of sidewalk with steps above and steps below and a fairly steep grassy hill to the side. All I can imagine is that if a wheelchair-bound person found themselves there, someone is supposed to come and help them.


Like Angles


Kiev Helios-103 53/1.8

I have photographed this set of metal sculptures many times and always find some new way to approach them.


Stepped Glass


Kiev Helios-103 53/1.8

I am a sucker for repeating elements in architecture, particularly when there are sky reflections.


Metal Chicken


LZOS Jupiter-12 35/2.8

Yes, it is for sale!

But wait! There's More!!

A few that don't lean...also taken with the Kiev-4A...


Stepped Reflections


Kiev Helios-103 53/1.8


Raised Dots


Kiev Helios-103 53/1.8

A sculpture of sorts near my home.



Piles of Stones


Kiev Helios-103 53/1.8

Low maintenance yard near my home. I can only imagine what it will look like once the weeds invade the rock bed. (Hint...not so low maintenance, I would expect.)


Walls with Windows


LZOS Jupiter-12 35/2.8 (Kiev/Contax)

Fences with windows are popular in some parts of Portland. I don't know if they are designed to let people look in or to allow dogs to look out. Either way, it is sort of different.

All shot with Legacy Pro 400 exposed for ISO 800 and developed in Edwal FG-7 (1+15) for 13 minutes at 21 C except the fence with windows. It was inadvertently exposed for ISO 400 and suffered somewhat as a result!

And finally, a few "wet" ones...


Not Sideways


LZOS Jupiter-12 35/2.8 (Kiev/Contax)

Latourelle Falls is the first major waterfall heading east on the historic Columbia River Highway as it enters the deeper portion of the Columbia River Gorge. The locals often pronounce the name as "lateral", though there is no sideways aspect to the falls that I can see.


Antique Base


LZOS Jupiter-12 35/2.8 (Kiev/Contax)

Just another photo of the lower Multnomah Falls. I just thought the photo had an antique look to it. The flow was very heavy and the mist was flying thick to give the hazy effect.


Antique Base v.2


LZOS Jupiter-12 35/2.8 (Kiev/Contax)

Lower Multnomah Falls from a slightly different angle. I could not decide which one I liked best, so posted both.


All taken with a Kiev-4A rangefinder camera shooting Legacy Pro 400 exposed for ISO 800. Development was in Edwal FG-7 (1+15) for 13 minutes at 21 C.


BTW...These pictures date back to mid-March, hence there are no leaves on the trees. It looks much different now!


Steve

(...in case nobody figured it out...I managed to get the Nikon 5000 ED working well enough to do some quick scans of this roll. Extensive curl made scanning with the Epson V700 almost impossible!)

Thank you David. I generally shoot with slower film and I find the grain and contrast characteristics of the Legacy Pro a little disconcerting. I may spend some time fine-tuning my development to get better mid-range and shadow performance. I suspect that if I drop the development time to about 10-11 minutes, things will look a lot better.
