Love the big sky Bill...
Leica M3 and 35mm Summicron
Just a UVa protection filter was used. I have a set of B&W filters (red, yellow, and orange), but I've actually never used them - in fact I only recently removed them from by camera bag.
Well, Billblackwellphotography, bravo. Your capture of contrast is exceptional. And Sergio_ortga|7, really like your shot. You've balanced the light well, and captured a moment. So, my shots from the week. All taken (and I apologise for 'hogging' the space) at my spouse's and her son's carers Christmas gala. My spouse's late age son has 'global developmental delay', though, of all her children, I think he is the most mature and sensible. Late age marriages are a task. But I ramble. So the shots, all with a monochrom m, 50mm summicrom collapsible, and a flash. The first is of my wife and her son - the theme of the night was circus: he's supposed to be a ringmaster, and she a ringmistress. The second, one his carers. The third, a carmen miranda lookalike. The fourth, a young man, trying to be a clown. Finally, a young man who also attends my wife's son's day care program ('House with no Steps'), which he likes to call 'going to work'. Indulgence for the excess is requested. Look forward to further photos. Regards, Arthur (apiarist1).

Remembrance Day ceremony, May 2018
WW1 Field Kitchen display
Leica M-E with scratchy Summarit
Rick's field kitchen shot again points out that the Summarit is often unfairly disparaged. This is a nice shot, scratched lens or not. f5.6 or 6.3 equivalent?
Some lovely photographs. Billblackwellphotography, I would give my eye teeth for your control of contrast and saturation, as I would of your's Bill Bowes.
Rick_van_Nooij, they are good shots (although I was a bit dismayed by the deep frown of the person on the right of your first shot). Tell me a bit more about your images, their context, how Remembrance Day is remembered where you are - not sure where that is (I have seen some other shots of yours, here and on other sites, of, apparently, what appeared to me, people re-enacting WWI/II events - not sure) if you would. Look forward to more of your photos Rick_van_Nooij. Arthur (apiarist1)
Rick, the guy on the right has the scowl down pat.
Sergio_ortega|17, I'm sorry, it didn't connect to me that you used an M3. Tell me about the film you used and the processing. It's a great shot. Where? Regards, Arthur (apiarist1)
Cheers for the replies everyone.
This particular Summarit suffers a bit of glow and slight reduced sharpness in spots compared to an absolutely pristine specimen I keep on a IIIf, or my Xenon that is married to a wartime IIIc. Of course the Summarit/Xenon formula isn't known for its super sharpness to begin with.
Arthur, May 4th is our national remembrance day for all those who died in World War 2 (initially) and all other conflicts the Dutch were involved in that came after. At 8 PM the country grinds to a halt and holds a 2 minute silence. We celebrate Liberation day on the 5th of May.
I cover a lot of Living History and re-enactment events with vintage cameras, usually in matching period uniform.
Yours truly as a Photographic Section Officer, US Army.
