Glass workers

I did all sorts of shooting assignments in my many years behind the camera. These images are from an industrial assignment in a glass factory way back in 1973. These are scanned Ektachrome slides that kept their color. They were all shot on available light.

The images I find

These images of Michelangelo's David in Florence date from the summer of 1969. They were shot on Agfachrome 59 that lost much of its color so I converted them to black and white.

That magical Micro Nikkor

The 55mm F 3.5 Micro Nikkor was one of the finest lenses that Nikon made. I used it to do all sort of archival work and for pleasure shots and it earned me a lot of money. I finally replaced it with the 60mm F 2.8 auto focus Micro Nikkor but it didn't have the magic of the old one. These photos were all shot on Kodachrome II with a speed of only 25. The lens was mounted on a Nikon Ftn.

Have a beautiful weekend

The wonder of Charleston

Charleston South Carolina a a truly magical city. Because it was spared destruction during the Civil War, it ante bellum architecture gives the city a sense of authenticity along with great beauty. These are Kodachrome images that were scanned to preserve them.
