You may be able to shoot with Fellini's film

This is the famous film for movies only that was used for some of the greatest films ever made. It will now be available as a still film.

FILM Ferrania has re intruduced or brought back to life its  classic Italian P30 black and white film, and it should be made available soon  but as a limited 'ALPHA' edition. This 80 ISO panchromatic offering is described by FILM Ferrania as ‘motion picture film for still photography,’ reintroducing the P30 stock first launch by the company in the 1960's. Says Ferrania, P30 ALPHA ‘has no peers in the modern analog film market. Good luck to them. Will they at least come out with the appropriate developer?

Little Italy in The Bronx

The Belmont section of The Bronx is the last surviving Little Italy in New York City. It still has much of it's original authenticity and feel. Here we have card players enjoying a summer Saturday in the Park. These are scans of Kodachrome slides that were for a project on Italian feasts and neighborhood for an Italian publisher. Before digital only slides were acceptable for publication.

Have a relaxing weekend


Not very happy



These vendors at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel feast in Brooklyn, NYC, appear to be rather angry and bored. Perhaps it was late and it had been a long day. After all how many zeppole can you make and sell before they get to you.

Marcy does it again

I have posted many photos shot by my very talented wife who does amazing work using only simple cameras. She can use the heavy stuff but prefers the freedom of the so called point and shoot. These images are from Puerto Rico and were shot on a Canon G-9. I just  love them.
