I saw this morning as well and thought it was flat cool!. Is that a 911s? Looks more like a T but I can't tell from the pictures
That is an old standard 911/911s/912 chassis I believe. If I remember correctly the 912 was the budget model but the same on the outside with cheap wheels and tires (which was more common here in the US - option upgraded like a 911 inside with a radio, more gauges, and the smaller engine). Very nice cars, though if I was going for an older air-cooled Porsche, I would probably lean towards a 356b (can't afford anything earlier and good luck finding affordable parts for a real speedster).

I didn't check what model it was actually. Will have a look if it's still there when I pass that way.

Anarchist street art. Shot on expired c41 color film. Post processed as b&w.

Some tests with slide copier+M75-150. Agfa CT Precisa 100 from a Pentax SuperA. Don't remember the lenses for sure but probably with Sigma SW2 24/2.8.

The British museum makes for good photos, no matter what, it seems...

Here's a veterans' cemetery decked out with flags for Armed Forces day - the flags had wilted a bit as I was there three weeks later. I was out with the KX and the 1933 Voigtlander Rollfilmkamera after I'd fixed it, so when I get the mf film developed there will be an interesting comparison. The roll film was Fuji 160S however...

Kodak Ektar 100, KX, SMC-M 50/1.7



a '50s style b&w conversion, green + blue filtering, and a slight split toning...

Mmmm an air-cooled German car.... I like this photo's "character" - you can see that car has been driven hard (as it should be)
Looks like a short wheelbase car, 65-68, but not an S or L. My guess is 65-66 since it's got steel wheels on it. It looks like the car's been "DOTed" or converted to US specs. I believe most euro cars came with H4 headlights, not those POS sealed beams and the turn signals are wrong(should have silver trim)

<- has a 73 T

EDIT: Looks like someone beat me to the punch.

I'm a bit tired of the sight of american flags (no offence intended) but this is still a nice picture. I prefer the color version and I think I would crop it a bit at the bottom.

Tri-x 400 that expired 27 years ago. I think I was a bit optimistic exposing this at 1600 ISO
The grain is beautiful though.

No doubt, all of those do. That's some intensely cool grain.

I hadn't noticed there was a dedicated film grain thread.

Will post them over there.

Grain is one of those things that you will love or hate. I for one love grainy images and as a result I try and expose for that.

I love grain too. One of the reasons why I wanted to start shooting film again besides digital. Of course there's ugly grain and nice grain, but the grain on these negatives is very nice as far as I'm concerned.

Yea, I know what you mean about ugly grain. I have some of those myself.
