Thanks very much!
Livery stable at Columbia Calif. Shot with Leica MP and Superia. I am not much of a color film guy as I do not develop it and the closest lab is 50miles away. However I am going on a 3 week backpacking trip in July from Yosemite Valley to Mount Whitney and thought I would shoot color on the way. I am satisfied with Superia for that. I love the Leica MP as a camera but was having trouble sleeping because of the money I spent on it so yesterday I sent it back. Now I cannot sleep because I let it go. Anyway bad for my emotions all around.
My sympathies, Ross, having been in that situation many times. Time heals, and perhaps you should look around for another camera you've hankered after, something a little less costly. The world's full of interesting cameras that take great pictures!
I would like to try a 4x5 sometime.
Water Tower at Jamestown railroad. Since the trains were not running they let me walk down the track for a shot.
Nikon F 50mm 1.4
Riding my bike (in parking garages is actually good exercise) and taking pictures...
A 24mm in f mount would be really nice, but I promised my self no more new (old) lenses or cameras.
Here are a couple from the Agfa Isolette III using expired Kodak Ektachrome 200
Developed by FotoExpress in San Jose, CA
Some of the colors may be a bit off and that is due to my poor scanning and post processing

I have one I'm not using, if you'd like to borrow it.
This has a wonderfully 3-D look to it.
I feel your pain. From time to time I think about a Leica MP.
Much as I like Arista EDU 100 Ultra in the 35mm format, I find it a little slow for hand-held work with medium format cameras. However, one day last week, with a wonderful light from a slightly hazy sun, I loaded a roll into a Mamiya 645 1000s fitted with the Mamiya Sekor 55-105mm f/4.5 lens and took a walk around town. The tonality of the results was impressive; the film was developed in PMK Pyro and scanned on an Epson V700 Photo using Silverfast SE software.
