Central Park in the seventies was absolutely phenomenal. On any weekend afternoon it was an ongoing show. Here are two guitarists shot with the Nikkor 105 F2.5.

I love the square format and the way the looking down focusing, showing you the entire negative and how things appeared size wise on the negative. The reversed image was a thing that one got used for. The film was Tri-X Professional developed in D-76 1:1 dilution. BTW, the location was Madison Square Park in Manhattan.

Leica's Oskar Barnack Award 2011 international photo competition will be open for entries from January 15 with a first prize worth €14,500 (~ $19,000). For this year's prize the winner will receive an M9 rangefinder and lens in addition to the €5000 cash prize offered last year. To enter, participants need to submit a series of ten to twelve images expressing 'the interaction between man and the environment.' There will also be a Newcomer award open to photographers under 25 years. Submissions are open until 15 March 2011. If you do not know who Oskar Barnack was, well it's really too bad.

I have been posting many photos taken with the Canon FT. It was my first serious camera and together with the 50 1.4 FL, the 28 F 3.5 FL and the 85 F 1.6 FL I was set to go. This shot was taken in Agrigento, Sicily. It has a strange feeling, late afternoon with the sun low in the horizon creating the interesting lens flare. It was taken in front of the Tempio della Concordia. The film was Tri-X developed in D-76 1:1.

More color more spring dreaming. More insanity. The lens was the 24mm F2.8 Nikkor, the place was the Queens Botanical garden. The day was beautiful.
