W/NW 2021 Pic-O'-The-Week #2

Discussion in 'Leica and Rangefinders' started by allancobb, Jan 13, 2022.

  1. Welcome everyone to Week 2 of 2022, the Leica and Rangefinders W/NW Thread! As we are firmly entrenched in January, here's a neighborhood winter scene the day after a recent snowfall.

    Leica M8, 35mm f/2.5 Voigtländer Color-Skopar PII

  2. Way down yonder on the hippy nation
    Vulture Fest
    technically a viewfinder, but Taxona
  3. M262 and 21mm f3.4 Super Elmar, hands-down my favorite ultra-wide angle for shooting in any light, including straight into it.


    and compressing architecture with the 135mm f3.4 APO Telyt-M:

  4. That's beautiful, Allancobb. We swelter here in a southern summer. Icy figures. I look forward to April here. Lovely shot. Regards, Arthur

  5. Where? They are good shots. I particularly like the second - a challenging contrast between history and the novelty of now. Good choice of lens. Regards, Arthur.
  6. Hi, my shots are 'round up the usual suspects'. We've gone haywire here with covid - don't know what's happening where you are. But it's 'tucker down' here. So my shots. Monochrom, adjusted ISO, 75mm voigtlander lens. My stepson to begin with, in a more lucid moment:


    And another couple, yes.


    Bad focus there, but that's it. Regards, Arthur. Keep safe.
  7. All with Leica IIIF and 35 Elmar 3.5.



  8. They are good, very good, barryfisher. Film? Processing? I continue to be amazed at the virtuosity of imagery on this site. It excels. I like the first shot in particular. A touch of life. Tiro, quoting Cicero, once said 'the years sweep us away, as the gale sweeps away the leaves' (or something like that); these images remain forever. Tell me about your IIIf. I have a couple, they are good, with summitars, and a couple of old Ruski reproduction, I expect elmars or summars. I enjoy using them, though they require discipline. Regards, Arthur.
  9. Thanks Arthur. The IIIF I bought on a lark at a Used Camera shop near me for a couple of hundred dollars with the Elmar 50 3.5. It needs a complete overhaul, new curtains, adjustment, cleaning etc. But it did take some nice photos, and I only used it a couple of times because frankly it was a bit of a PITA. I didn't mind precutting the film leader, but the focusing dance was fun to say the least. focussing with the eye at one window and framing with the other window. But in daytime you could zone focus and it worked fine. The last shot is at night. Film was most likely Tri-X in HC110, a fairly fast general developer we used at school. The thing that was so great at school, is the techs would hand out the developer at generally the correct temperature and in the developing rooms you could control the water temperature so it made for great developing environment.
  10. M8 + Voigtlander 50/1.1

  11. Thanks! Downtown Dallas, Texas. I’m fortunate in being one of the minority of people back in the office and so have some great streets to go walking during my mid-day lunch hour.
  12. Especially like, Barry.

    Different places, looked at in different ways.
  13. Thank you Arthur and great portraits as always. I'm not a fan of mid-summer myself and always look forward to autumn.
