Clearly, this was the last shot on the roll, taken just as I was passing out off the table.
Sounds like a good time. Hope no gear was broken.

Cool colors.
You should post the camera, lens, and film used...

Swift1, I can't think of what to say... I like it. The sidewalk cracks make it, and the white stuff, whatever it is--birds on the line? The driver seems an accessory in all this, but essential. How did you find this, or how did it happen? I like the wires, and the ribs on the mirror, the light surround grids, the colors, the other ribs and chevrons, the lines and decay.... It works, but is this normal? Interesting place Ashland... Then that nice door on the right, green hose on the left. --Duplex, and they hate each other, right?

Dsmithhfx, nice response!

I saw your signature, but it doesn't really show what you used for a particular image.

Thanks David.
This is just something we came across while out taking photos. The old van has been there awhile, but I'm not sure how long the skeleton has been there. I was test shooting some expired film, and the colors came kinda odd but it worked well for that image.

Interesting place Ashland...
That is what many of us in the Northwest say

On the flip side, Ashland is no stranger than Portland and offers a somewhat drier climate. Nice place, Ashland. BTW, they have Shakespeare too...

I don't use ONLY Pentax cameras. In fact, my favorite camera isn't a Pentax; it's the Minolta Alpha 9. And I've also been enjoying my Nikon FM2 bodies lately, so here are some non-Pentax shots. I do use my Pentax M42 lenses on the Alpha via a chipped M42 adapter.


Minolta Alpha 9, Takumar 18mm f/4, Red Dragon redscale @64 ISO, Chicago


Minolta Alpha 9, Minolta 50mm f/1.7, Kodak 400TX @1600 ISO, D-76 Stock for 9:30


Nikon FM2, Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AI-S AF, Fuji Natura 1600


Minolta Alpha 9, Vivitar 135mm f/2.5, Fuji Natura 1600, 15-minute-ish exposure

I've only used it a handful of time, but the panorama crop mode on the MZ-3 is a bit of fun...

I have long admired the FM2 and have considered getting one several times in the past couple of years. Don't tell my KX though. I have enough discontent in the ranks as it is with all this K-1 talk.

Excellent photos, BTW...

Exposed at ISO 3, f:16 @ 1 second. Developed in stock solution D-76, Scanned on flatbed, not transparency.

Slight adjustments in GIMP.

Invert, desaturate, slight lighten, and added a bit of contrast. (Imagine that, adding contrast to a paper neg?)



This was just a quick shot as a test of using D-76 for paper developer. Not what i would use for a print, but it seems to help contrast on a paper negative.

I just really like the tonality of the candle holder globe in the sunlight against the dark background. There is virtually no grain whatsoever to be found. At 200% the scan shows pixels but no grain that i could see. Crazy stuff with the right subject.

Thank you. I'm impressed by them. I have one that looks like it just came out of the box and one that was REALLY used. I'm also sitting on an FE2, which on paper I should like more but I'm not sure yet. The FM2 is nice. Honestly, though, if you haven't tried an Alpha/Maxxum/Dynax 9 before, that's worth getting. It's simply unbelievable.
