Hi Guys.
I posted this in the street thread, but wanted to post it here also.

Here is perhaps one of my most favorite captures. I took this On Monday while packing my gear to go home. I looked out the back window of my truck anD there it was. A perfectly framed image that shows the joy of a couple in love

I took this with my Spotmatic SP2, super tak 35F/3.5 and Ilford XP-2 400 film.
Nice composition, nice timing= Very nice shot!!!!

Cheers,

Luc

We went out to the Cabrillo National Monument last weekend. It was cloudy, windy, lots of dust blowing through the air, and a constant drizzle - I am sure that was because I brought the camera along.

I went up in the old Point Loma Lighthouse early in the morning and they had the original keeper's bedroom behind glass. I was the only person there besides a ranger and I... "accidentally" hit the light switch and managed to get one shot off with the SP before getting my scolding from the helpful ranger. Close to what I was trying to get but not exactly...

Once again the 28 year expired Plus-X in the SP1000 with the 55mm 1:2 lens

Thanks Guys. I am going to have it printed and I am going to put it in my office.
Not often I take a picture that ''I'' really like.

Javier, that's what I call a Classic shot. Wow...

The only thing that bothers me is the bright seatbelt clamp. I would clone it out, print the photo at 12x18 and hang it on a wall where everyone will see it. I might also retire from photography after that

I botched the focus on this one (the first pumpkin is blurry), but I still like it. Taken with an MX + FA 20mm f/2.8 (yay for Pentax compatibility). Film used was lowly Kodak CN400BW, developed and scanned at a drugstore, hence the tonal suckage (blame the tools! ).

I like it, Halloween is one of my favorite days since I can scare the poo out of little children and not get in any trouble...

I have to turn on the "Chiller" channel while I am cleaning the house now...

Nice moody shot.

Still funny and I don't mind the flat tones so much on this shot, fits with the light subject matter.

Home developed expired C-41 color film from an unknown manufacturer. Messing with the development temperatures on C-41 films can result in some very interesting (and beautiful) color shifts!

No kidding! The last shot makes for a very pleasing abstract. I have a few expired CN400BW rolls on the shelf (should probably put them in the fridge or freezer). I should experiment with home developing and see how that goes.

Thanks! I haven't tried any c-41 b&w film. I prefer silver. Also easier and cheaper to develop at home. I'm curious what you can do with the c-41 b&w when you adjust the temps on those though.
I have more film than food in my fridge at the moment

K1000 Pentax 100-300mm @300mm with f5.6 Fuji NPS160

I just thought I'd share the photo that almost made it into Reader's Digest.
