  14. Really great response on the first day of the new thread. Impressive. Most impressive.
    Looking forward to see more images as the thread continues.
  15. Over the long Easter weekend one of our local towns adopted a "British" theme to attract shoppers and tourists. I was surprised to find this old Rolls-Royce parked in the busy main street, in front of one of the hotels with the traffic whizzing past. I think it's a Rolls-Royce "Light 20" from a total production run of 40 cars dating back to 1904-06 and, if so, it's one of the three surviving examples, worldwide. Amazing, what one finds in small New Zealand towns.

    The camera was the Olympus OM-4 with a 135mm Olympus E.Zuiko Auto-T f/3.5 lens and the film was Kentmere 100 developed in PMK Pyro

  16. Great series, Rick. I like the perspective provided by the 135mm E. Zuiko. This focal length, once so popular that it was usually the first telephoto that users added to their SLR kit, was eclipsed for many years by the popularity of telephoto zooms. Those of us here at are giving these classics plenty of use. I currently have the following 135's: Minolta Rokkor MD 135mm f 3.5, Celtic 135mm f 2.8 MD, Tamron SP 135mm f 2.5, Sigma Mini Tele 135mm f 3.5 (MD), Soligor 135mm f 2.8 (Konica AR mount), Pentax 135mm f 3.5 (M42) and Pentax SMC A 135mm f 3.5.
    And one with autofocus: Maxxum 135mm f 2.8. Its formula is more complex than the usual 135 with its typical 4 or 5 elements. The Maxxum lens is 7 elements with internal focusing. A great lens that I should use more.

  18. I managed to develop two rolls of 35mm . One roll was from a Contaflex Super New which the meter was way too sensitive. The one and only time I used it before the selenium meter was performing nicely and I was soo pleased. Having kept it in the Dark, maybe was a bad idea?? So like the other week with underexposed frames, the first half of the roll was off but I noticed these were way off and tried to play with the DIN but even then it was off the scale. seemed liked the more I played with it the worse it got so I just ignored it after a while. I guess if I want a metered Contaflex, the Super BC is the way to go... what to do with the other three? The other roll I shot was using the Yashica Lynx 45mm 1.7. I had ignored this for many years and it too has a meter that is shaky at best. Back in the 80s when it had the proper batteries it seemed quite ok, but the rigged copper spacers and LR44s are intermittent when not also often "wrong" . I had a yellow filter and this worked out ok . Souped both in D76 1:1 Straight scans no tweaks..


    Contaflex Super ...the street side of the "Forum" which was an exposition hall that is now used for changing Art exhibitions


    Contaflex Super The left or back side faces to the Rhein I referred to this last week as the Rhein Terrace. Which is often used as a Gala Dance or Dinner hall.


    Contafles.. Ok I lied. I did lighten this one, as it was too darkk due to the underexposure. This is the TonHalle


    Lynx 45mm 1.7 This looked better in the fuinder the pole on the right is actually the gnomon of a Sundial.


    Lynx 45mm 1.7 A building on the Rhein promenade .. I need to read what it houses...


    Lynx 45mm 1.7 The background building is the reginal Social Security building the foreground? . The pavilion is in front of a government admin? building


    Lynx 45mm 1.7 This was the Mannesmann building, a regional behemoth company, now long diversified. My wife worked here for a short while before our first child.
  19. After seeing Rick's 135mm focal length images I decided to post a few that I've made over the years. Probably a few of these have been posted before.
