  1. Here we are again, waiting to join in and share your work. Thanks for all the participation. I'll start with a photo from Down Town Los Angeles, I hope you enjoy. Don't be bashful, put them up!
  2. Leica M-P 240, 50mm Asph Summilux
    B&W Conversions via Nik. Film Simulation = Pan-Ex (above) and Tri-Ex (below).
    Botanic Gardens, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
  3. Film Simulation = Pan-X and Tri-X. I thought that looked funky! But I didn't figure out why until it was too late to edit/correct. ...

    ... here's this week's FrankenLeica:

  5. My posts. I had wanted to post some M6 (with HP5) shots made last weekend, but decided not to. One is on another post about the problems I'm having with dust, grain, grit, etc. Ah, film, it's a journey, and a challenge. So three shots from my monochrom m ('my debt') taken last weekend at dinner, and using a newly acquired voigtlander (aka cosina) 25mm color-skopar. My initial impressions are not that good. These were wide open with no flash in pub light (the batteries on my flash were dead). So at the upper ISO range of the m - you could, in febrile dreams, say it emulates film. Anyway, herewith. These are all at our local (rural hinterland of Oz) bowling club. The first is of the bartendress; if I can be politically uncorrect, a very generous women of immense character, vibrancy, and life. The second is of her son, I believe. The third is of a patron at the cheap and easy Thai/Chinese at the club (which is surprisingly, indeed, exceptionally good - if for any reason, in your sober moments, you ever find yourself lost in rural Oz, you could not do any worse than have a meal at this club. The ambience is crap; but the food is exceptional). Regards, Arthur (apiarist1)

  6. Did I say 'uncorrect'. Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Billblackwellphotography, your second and third shots are quite engaging. Well done. The third in particular, quite evocative. Well done. They are good, indeed, very good. Now, what do we do with the 'frankenleicas? I'm not sure. I'm not sure what we have to discern, and if there's a prize if we get it right. The story that Mary Shelley wrote of Frankenstein, in her teenage years, beyond her years, resonated with so much. Anyway, great shots, billblackwellphotography. I'll add one of the 'abortive' shots I made with HP5. It doesn't get worse than this:

  11. Whatever you like. I really don't expect anything from anyone, but I'll answer any questions anyone might have. I just thought there might be some interest out there. I'd say we could have a contest to see who could guess all of its make-up, but there's not enough activity in this forum for that anymore. Pretty sad, actually.
