Speaking of going back in time, does anyone even wear a wrist watch anymore?

My Invicta Bolt Zeus automatic chronograph taken with Pentax LX + 100mm f4 macro using Lomography 100 film




I grew up wearing the more traditional 36mm watch for comparison. Shot using the same setup as above. It's bigger than a traditional watch . . .
Mmm...it appears we are discussing about watches, another of my passions....few days ago I received a battered, dinged and ugly Micro-Nikkor 55 mm f2.8 that I had won on ebay for a ridiculous amount of money (i think 30 or so)...to be honest I didn't even expected it worked, the focus is vey hard, the filter thread is damaged, the in built hood is bent, it arrived with no caps and it's full of scratches, however I decided to play a little bit with subject at close range, one of the guinea pigs was of course my Longines Istituto Idrografico Marina Militare, a reissue of an old chrono from the late 30s assigned to the Royal (Italian) Navy...here there are the results.

Please be indulgent, it's the first time I do macros (or micros?)!

Very nice. The everyday, surprising with abstraction and detail. Great image.

I just bought a *ist film camera to experiment with. These are a couple of shots with Fuji 400 speed film.

(with FA 31 limited about f2.8 I think).



(with DA *55 at f2, I believe)

LF Lee, if you don't mind me asking, how far over do you expose your film?

And stop tempting me to buy a 67!

Hi ... this is overexposed by 2 stops (set iso to 200 and +1EV).

67 is really a great cam ! Monitor the price a bit and you can get good deal....

I'd like to get a 67II but the prices are in the Hasselblad range!

FWIW, the only big feature the 67II has that isn't on the 67 is auto exposure.
If you don't need AE, I'd recommend the 67.

A few from my Grandfather's and Dad's slides and negatives collection...... Scanned using a cheap 5 MP scanner so not as good as some here!!!

First one is Kodachrome that I think was an entry by my Grandad into a competition probably sometime in the 1960s. Second is my Dad in an action shot! This would have been around Edinburgh again in the 60s, not sure what film this is. I can't be at all sure of the camera used but my Grandad was a Pentax user later so it's entirely possible an earlyish Pentax may have been used (these are all 35 mm). The last is my Dad in 1973 with his brand new Pentax Spotmatic F and 50mm 1.8 and the final image is that same camera today (ok taken with a Q but to illustrate)! Both my parents passed away over the last few years and I have loads of childhood photos all taken on that camera. Maybe in 20 years time my daughter may want to play with it too...... We'll see....

See images in my next post! For some reason didn't upload.....
