A little color among all the B&W's / Nikon D-200

Shot in the main green house of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden with the Micro Nikkor 60mm F2.8. A nice change and a touch of color to interject among all the B&W scans that I have posted recently.

A real oldie / Yashicamat 124

Shot in Grand Gorge, NY. this photo is one of my earliest attempt at taking a "photograph." The Yashicamat, had opened my eyes to the 120 format that I absolutely loved. The film was ANSCO 500 developed in ANSCO Hyfonol. That is really old stuff.

Malaga, Leica M-4

Once again the M-4 with the 35mm F2 Summicron. Panatomic-X developed in Agfa Rodinal 1:75 dilution.

Another from the archives / Yashicamat 124

Summer where are thou... Canon 1DII

Thinking of that late summer afternoon. Shot with the Canon 16-35 F2.8 L.

The Elton Hotel / Canon Ft

What do you do during snowy wintry days, you scan old photos. This shot of the Hotel Elton a block away from my Studio in the East side of Manhattan was shot on one of those June evenings when the sun hangs around. I just love the long days. The late night is coming from the west side and is illuminating the walls and fire escapes. The lens as the fantastic Canon 50 mm F 1.4 FL. Tri-x developed in D-76 1:1. I just love that lazy summer feeling that this photo captures.

Shoemaker in Chinatown / Nikon SP

What a gret camera. The Nikon SP rangefinder was a real gem. I shot this outdoor shoemaker in Chinatown in Manhattan with the SP and the 35mm Nikkor F 3.5. The film was Tri-X developed in D-76 full strength.
