It is not sunny and hot anymore here so I am scanning...

Hope nobody's mind me posting 5 images on the same post?

Cheers,

They are indeed. The frames are beautiful, but the build kit is pretty pedestrian, mostly shimano nexus and off-brand bits.


We'll see how they sell next to the Pashley's and Batavus'.
You guys are bike savvy DO you have another addiction on top of LBA - BBA?

CSoars:
How do you like so far the move to MF - the first shots you posted were nice and clear. Are you still shooting 35mm with MX and K35mm/F2?

Cheers,

Bike racks at the local GO station.

Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4 (if my memory is any good) on a KX with Kodak Gold 200. This is from my first set of scans on an Epson V500 pecause I'm tired of badly cropped lab scans.

I had almost forgotten how nice a lugged and brazed frame looks. Thanks for sharing!

Same KX with the SMC Pentax 28mm f3.5. Dropped the KX on the rock out on that island. It got some new dents and more brass shining through the black and strangely enough it double exposed half a frame after that accident. Lens was undammaged, which was my greatest vorry. Camera still works.







The shots are from the island Tjörn in Bohuslän on the Swedish west coast. Last picture shows the traditional style of houses in the small villages there, where the population were living on fishing, but now largely lives on tourists and many houses have turned into summer-houses.

Lots of good BW work in this thread lately!

Here in Canada, there was a series on TV about a Swedish detective called Kurt Wallander with Kenneth Branagh. Some of the scenery could have been part of your photo shoot.
Excellent series BTW.

Great photo! I just got through reading a couple of rude/angry threads and your image is fresh air for the eyes. Thanks!

Thanks Luc!

Kurt Wallander in the novels by Henning Mankel lives and works in the city of Ystad in the state of Skåne at the southmost coast of Sweden. Tjörn island is located much further north on the west coast in the state of Bohuslän.

The landscape of Bohuslän is characterised by the smoth bare rocks that was left when the last ice age withdraw. As the land is still rising from the sea, new sea bottom becomes land every year. The Skåne landscape is much more fertile.

Three actors have made the charactere of Kurt Wallander on film/TV-series:

Rolf Lassgård
Krister Henningsson
Kenneth Brannagh

Lassgård is the by far superior actor of these three who makes a much richer charactere with all the inner struggles and fights that Wallander has to face besides murderers and such.

In the foot steps of Kurt Wallander

Ystad city


Kurt Wallander on Wikipedia

For all I know thay may have recorded the English version of Wallander with Brannagan somewhere entirely different, far away from Ystad, even in Bohuslän, England, Canada or wherever. Try to get a chance to see a Wallander film with Rolf Lassgård, you wont regret it. It takes a Swede to play a Swedish police with hangover.

Well I'm shooting with a waist-level finder and no meter, so it's taking some getting used to, especially the reversed image on the screen. But you're right, the clarity and tonality of the shots is incredible, I can tell the difference even at smaller print/resolution sizes. But to really appreciate it, you've got to see it big, at least full screen. A lowly 1200 DPI scan is still velvety smooth.

Although I do attribute that to using ISO 125 film that I processed well. I'm curious to see how the faster stuff turns out in terms of grain and tonality.

I sold the K 35mm f/2, great lens but pretty big and ungainly on the MX without the winder. I tried to split the difference by pairing my M 50mm with a M 28mm, but I'm switching lenses too much; 35mm is my ideal walkaround lens. See my Pan F 50 post a page or so back for some 35mm work.
