Uhooru, another interesting shot. Greg M, great. The monochrom is such a fascinating camera. Viktor_gruber, I'm from the antipodes, where were these shots taken?. Two shots, from me, one with my monochrom to chronicle the savage frosts this year where I am (taken with a monochrom m, 50mm lens); the other a happy snap at my step-son's birthday dinner this last wednesday, taken with my newly acquired debt, an M type 240, with a collapsible summicron 50mm. The colour cast has not been corrected. Regards, Arthur (apiarist1)

Billblackwellphotography, that is a good shot. There must have been a dorian influence in the statuary of Madison's capital. When was the statue produced? I remember when I did my first degree, visiting the little garden off of the main quadrangle at Sydney Uni, there was a marvellous, quite large, bronze statue of Hermes (finger pointed to the sky, Apollo's messenger, reminding us that no message, or text, ever comes unmediated), and a small bronze 'garden art' of cupid, off to the side. They were mementos of the conflict, philosophical, between the Aristotelians and the neo-Platonists at the establishment of the university. And sergio_ortega|7, that last shot is quite breathtaking. I hope you have it framed and hanging on your wall. The other 'white sands' shots are good, though the horizon is a bit wonky. The flower shots are really enjoyable, but, to be honest, that last shot of white sands, is just so good. Regards, Arthur (apiarist1)

... When was the statue produced? ...


I have no idea. The roofline is littered with similar stone figures.


Here's one from Sacramento, CA - Leica M6, 50mm Noctilux

It does, victor_gruber, and thanks. Can you email me the file? I would appreciate it. Or perhaps, I just download it - that may be easier. I prefer b&w (now just mixing up some brew suggested to me by Bill Bowes - catechol), but wanted to try my new debt, a second hand type 240.


Yes, never been to san francisco, but the shots had that look. Keep seeking the light. And thanks, Arthur (apiarist1)
