Some shots of friends racing at a track I used to work at. I usually shot tmax 400 or delta 400 and pushed them one or two stops as needed.

I have to admit, I probably am sick, masochistic and a little twisted too. I've had friends point this out to me on a number of occasions. How do I get in touch with that therapist?

Sometimes big chunky grain can add to the appeal of a shot

The blocks were waiting to be melted down and used to cast fire hydrants, valves etc. They were shot at Terminal City Ironworks in Vancouver in the mid 90s. They closed down a few years ago. Couldn't compete with offshore products. The round valve handles were wooden dies for making moulds (they used a sand casting process) and the guy in the bottom shot was getting ready to pour hot iron. The crane shot was made from the paper neg on the right. I love the grain in tmax 3200. Nothing like it in the digital world.

I really like the olympus om cameras. I've had an om10 (my first camera), om4, om4t and still have an om1. I sold my oly gear when I felt the need for autofocus and bought a Pz1 and later an Mz5n. When I took Media Resources in the mid 90s our student cameras were the venerable Pentax K1000. I also relly like the olympus stylus epic...the Timex of point and shoots. It takes a licking and keeps on ticking. I carried the stylus in my coveralls pocket when I worked in a shipyard and it took a lot of abuse in some nasty environments and always worked. Nice sharp 35mm lens too. I've used all of these cameras fairly extensively in the past and have nothing but good things to say about all of them. (wish I still had that om4t)

I found this thread to be very sad. How old are you people? (Not everyone. There was SOME interesting info in it) The saddest part is I've just spent a couple of hours reading this thread. What does that say about me? Maybe I should borrow that old canon and beat my head with it. That would be just as enlightening.

This is my first post on here. I don't usually have much to say, but do find this site an invaluable resource about everything Pentax. In the mid 90's I switched from Olympus to Pentax because autofocus was a big help in what I was shooting (harness racing). My photography instruction when I took Media Resources a Capilano College was taught with the K1000 so when it was time to go autofocus I bought a PZ1 and have had Pentax ever since. I did keep 1 Olympus OM1 though. My present camera is a K10d and battery grip with a DA16-45, DA50-200, FA 50 1.4, Metz58 AF-1 and Pentax 360 FGZ. I'm very happy with my gear. Like I said earlier I may not post much on here , but have spent quite a few hours expanding my mind here. By the way, I bought the Metz flash after reading about it here. Great site and a great resource. I look forward to spending many more hours here expanding my mind.
