Thanks Bob! I know what you mean about the sepia, for lack of better words. When I was a darkroom hostage, I treated some of my B&W prints shot with the Pentax 645 to sepia.
Once I tried a copper tone bath. It was supposed to give a copper metallic sheen, and preserve the image longer. I don't know what I did wrong, but they came out kinda more reddish than I expected. They still looked great at first... but now, 25 years later, there is some additional copper staining that didn't used to be there. All I can guess is that my fix wasn't strong enough or the archival rinse wasn't long enough, and something kept on developing.

Anywho, I need to go back up that way and play with my K-1.

Thanks Bob! Some subjects are just fun to shoot, others are a little more of a chore to find an interesting perspective.
My next set will be a little more different, but some might geek out on them. Still working on post.

Nice barn convesion. I really liked some of the barns up in Tennessee last time I was up that way, I was suprised how many were old tobacco barns. All kinds of cool stuff in various states of wear and tear.

For the person taking portraits from the back row? ;) Certainly not for the incognito street shooter who is trying to go unnoticed, LOL!

I dunno...the 135mm was always an alternate to the 85-90mm holy trinity of primes to carry, and is a useful focal length. If you throw a 2x on it, you now have a 270mm F2.8, albeit at a slightly reduced IQ, but no worse than a zoom and probably better... so you just made up for its ungainly size by eliminating the large 70-200 2.8 from your bag.

Ya know, the hardest part of my day when I have to travel light, is picking what goes in the bag with me, and even then, I still bring too much of the wrong stuff and wish I had brought that "one" item.

These conversations are fun, heh heh. :cool:

I would imagine it could be even more difficult to mimic a well known image than to just wing it and do something original, where people would just take it at face value instead of comparing it.

What, you mean no pancake 135mm f1.4 version is forthcoming?
Darn, and I was starting to write the check. :)

Joking aside, we are a fickle lot aren't we. With IBIS we gain several stops, then with new sensors we gain more stops effectively, and yet, we balk at stuff we really don't want or need just because someone had the audacity to offer it in a K mount.

I wish more 3rd party lenses were offered in K mount, no matter how much I personally want or don't want one, because it is good for Ricoh if they do.

I can just imagine if most of todays Digital shooters who never shot film had to deal with the narrow latitude of slow slide film... or if they had to deal with the grain of real 3200 film... and that was considered exotic... iso512000? heh heh... I never saw a roll of that on the shelf. Sure, we pushed some films a few stops, but you ran out of headroom fast. Blurry clumps of grain were examined and praised for being almost recognizable! LOL!

These ARE the good old days, right now, we are just too caught up in sales hype and competition in the spec wars to appreciate it.

I know, it was totally campy brain-candy for kids that would rot your frontal lobe... but I can't help having fond memories of the watching a B&W 19" tube TV, with **Creature Feature on the UHF band. And if that doesn't date me, nothing will! :lol:

Beauty is in the eye... oh well, you know.

I tend to like the aggressive look of the smaller green heron family in flight, especially if their crest is up and they are excited.

Can't remember if I've posted these before, if i have, I apologize.

This kind stranger volunteered to demonstrate how hopscotch was done on the 3D chalk art.

I gave her a A for hamming it up like she was in danger of falling...

The trouble with some of these 3D effect type drawings is that you really need to almost be on a step ladder looking down to really get the effect.

I still enjoyed the exhibit immensely, more to come...

You just know there will be some weaving bicycle AFC tests being performed, hidden in some quiet neighborhood back street, just to be sure.
And someone will no doubt think they perceive an improvement too. :lol:

Thanks Bob! Looks like you will be heading out of fall colors and into the winter gray days soon. Should be interesting to catch some of the dynamic range when the white stuff falls, and how the critters fare.
Looking forward to those new adventures and you sharing them,
Eric
