Photo of the Week

Ahhh, Amsterdam.  One must wonder whether the railings along the canals are to keep people from falling in, or simply to serve as a place for all the bikes to be locked up…  This week’s photo is from a November trip to Amsterdam.  It was fairly cloudy that week but there were a few moments of sunshine.  I really liked how the point of view makes it seem like the bikes are clamoring for a view of the steeple in the distance.

 

Taken with my voigtlander Bessa R, not sure which lens, quite possibly my 15mm, and using Kodak Tri-X.  Processed with D76 and scanned on an Epson V700.

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.

Photo of the Week

This week’s photo is from a trip to Berlin last November.  I really liked the subway and train system and took many pictures.  I was a bit disappointed that what I thought had been a colour roll was actually a black and white.  Many of the shots just didn’t work in black and white, however this one, with it’s contrasty architecture, really lends itself well to it.

Photo of the Week

Started scanning some of my backlogged black and white film from last year.  I still have several rolls to develop, but I’ve scanned most of the developed stuff now.  I tried Tri-X, the film that everyone seems to praise.  Not sure if I like it, lots of dark negs it seems, might have to adjust my developing on the rest of the rolls.

 

This week’s photo taken with my voigtlander Bessa R and the 15mm Heliar.  Gives some great wide angles but also makes all the posts in the picture crooked…  Taken with Kodak Tri-X, developed in D76.  We had gone to Gare de l’Est for a day trip out of Paris, but due to some striking workers, we ended up heading to the local park instead.
