Gotta love those Velvia skies......
Hard to beat a FN2n. How did the airlines deal with film and X-rays. Looks great.
I asked for a hand check at each of four security checkpoints. Three obliged without x-rays. One put my lead lined film bag through the x-ray machine, which probably showed them a big black square, and then they didn't even open it to look at the contents!
Aside from the Pentacon Super, the L-series Prakticas are the pride of Praktica production. I have a good sampling of them, and they are straight-forward and reliable.

Hello again. I believe a relative of Mr. Farron's "Tex Rat" is living close to me here in Tulalip. I have spotted this mutant sub species of Rodentia several time when it delivers it's driver to the Stanwood Farmers Market on Fridays. A friend of mine from U of Wa. has named it "Wa Wat".

I had previously posted photos sourced by the processor who emails me photos and I pick up negatives when convenient. The files emailed are 72 dpi. What a difference when I scan the negatives. I said before that they seemed grainy. Here are some of the scanned negatives
It's a first cousin for sure.
SOOO much better!
Hello again. Don, your picture just above mjferron's post is showing a "bleed" from Kodak's system of letters/numbers used on 120 film. Was your film 120 Kodak? This bleed-thru was first seen 2-3 years ago with Kodak's TMY / TMX films in 120. Might you still have a current batch of this film so emulsion numbers can be given to Kodak? Their response to the b/w "event" was very professional. People who use this film need to be alerted to a potential bleed thru to any work. Bill
Actually that is portra 800 film that i converted to BW with photoshop. I noticred that also. It also noticed on the color photo. I guess I will contact Kodak about this also
Four frames from a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus developed in PMK Pyro. The camera was a Mamiya 645 1000S fitted with the Mamiya Sekor 55-105mm f/4.5 lens.
$20 for steak and eggs? Do you get a whole cow and chicken?

Notice that it's "egg" not "eggs"... I don't eat out very often in this expensive little country...
Continuing to love the results from that Mamiya 55-105, Rick.
Thanks Mike. I'm torn between the Mamiya 645 1000s and the Bronica ETRs when it comes to 645 format, but that Mamiya 55-110 zoom lens often tips the balance.
Found a roll of UFX400 (exposed) rattling around in a Fed kit, popped it into my OA and. . . . vintage car pictures from last month. V800 scanned. Here are two. Aloha from the Mainland, Bill
