Photo Friday

Still tons of scanned negatives to go through, but I saw this one and couldn’t resist posting it.  I absolutely love the contrasting pattern in the foreground.  This is at the palace of Versailles, just outside of Paris. Taken with my Voigtlander Bessa R using the 15mm Heliar lens on Fuji Neopan 400.  Scanned and no adjustments added, I did straighten the photo slightly (it’s tough to keep the 15mm level!).

Photo of the Week

Hot off the scanner….  Still working my way through last year’s European adventure, developed another two rolls the other day and just scanned them in this evening.  This shot is from Amsterdam, a biker flying over one of the many bridges.  A nice slow shutter speed gave me a little motion blur in the biker while still enabling a sharp foreground.  The brick pattern really makes this image (in contrast with the blurred biker).

Taken with my Voigtlander Bessa R, and I think my 15mm Heliar due to the great depth of field, but I could be wrong.  Film used was Fuji Neopan 400, I took a lot of Tri-X near the end of our adventure, and looking back at the two films, I still prefer Neopan, will have to stock up before our next trip.

Put up a collection of photos on Etsy as well, will be updating my store more frequently in the coming weeks.

Photo of the Week

Taken in Berlin, Germany from the cafeteria of the KaDeWe department store.  The enormous windows giving a panoramic view over the city were just begging me to pull out the 15mm and take a few pics.  I liked this one the best, it looks great huge with the curving window on the left hand side.
