....and a shot of my VW....
I like this shot the best of the bunch... probably because it brings back memories of my first car, a beetle. Is yours a 1964 1200 VW?

I just thought the"finely aged" B&W was appropriate for the old warbirds. I have several rolls hanging now - More of the neglected Mitchell, plus a lot of an old "Texan", a restored Avenger, and a restored Corsair. Didn't really shoot much more, the more modern planes didn't do a lot for me.
There is a restored A-26 and B-17 up at March among other things. There is an open house day every year that they have a B-17 crew present and let people crawl through her. I believe their open house is coming up soon.

Actually it is a standard '70, disguised as a '67 with the early bumpers and '67 engine lid. A lot of folks have trouble guessing the year since I shaved the trim and front signals, stock tag light, plus got rid of the dash pad and welded up an all metal dash when I put in/on the replacement floors, spare well, doors, deck lids, and front apron. It is a very "Cal Look Bug". Not much is stock on it, the purist restorers hate it. It is a good feeling when I see the faces of these sideways hat wearing kids in their bumble-bee muffler Hondas when I light up the tires and leave them like they are standing still.

Here are few point and shoot snapshots of some of the process
Jeff?s Bug

OK sorry for drifting way off topic, back to film shots...

When I was growing up, we had a family friend that used race VWs on the dirt track. He ran a service station and had a VW salvage yard out back. If VW made it, it was in the 'yard.

I just found out about a huge air-cooled VW salvage yard a couple hours north of here. I am putting a list of little parts I need together to put a rear seat in with the intention of using that as an excuse to head up and get into the yard in the next few weeks. Make a day of it with the cameras out in the yard taking picture of the wrecks. Might even make a weekend of it and head over to the Salton Sea that night and the next day to take pictures there.

Regarding B-17s, I actually worked for a Boeing sub-contractor for a year and a half or so in Seattle while going to school. The owner Bob restored a flying B-17. It was an incredible bird. I heard there was a lot of flap over it after he passed away. The Museum of Flight really wanted it, but the Director and Bob evidently butted heads a lot - not sure what ever happened to the plane. I know it was used in a few movies, but lost track of it.

Mmm cherries.... getting snack... ok back to the post:

Went for a day hike out on Black Mountain here in San Diego and brought the mighty SP1000 along. I was hoping to see some rattlesnakes or coyotes, but the only wildlife I ran into was a pack of loud 6-7 year old children with their teacher and then later in the day a guy with a mullet blasting 80's rock on a radio. Oh, there were also a few lizards but I was to big and clumsy to sneak up on them for pictures. A consolation shot of the trail with yet more expired film though-

Hi folks...Here are a few I took with a disposable I bought. I had to try one and what I found was a pretty cool street shooting rig as nobody gave it a second thought.

I had spooled up some short 10-12 shot rolls of that expired Kodalith I have in the freezer a while ago and decided I would get serious about figuring out the developing times and such this week. I loaded up a roll and Black Cat (that is his actual name) was laying on the black table with the bright sunlight through the vertical blinds hitting him - How convenient for high contrast ortho film... This first test roll was developed in straight Xtol for 6.5 minutes.
