Shot today, about 5:30pm, film developed at Wallies for a $1.90 (waited
all of 15 minutes, but was shopping anyway). These are with the Oly 35RC,
scanned at 2400dpi, Kodak Gold 200. I've ordered a bunch of film from
Freestyle that should be here by the end of the week. I also shot a roll of
BW through my Ricoflex some of the same or similar scenes and other
parts of Monte Sano Park. Have more scanning to do, but thought I'd post
these:







The black object on the ground to the left of the Teahouse in #2 is
dumkin Bill's camera bag! Laughing

And the last two:





These are just some test shots of things I might want to take with medium
format slide film. Last shot was different fstop and focus, than the first
view, this might be obvious even to the casual observer... Laughing

The very first image is REALLY fine, Bill. Man, the lens renders some nice looking colors and sharpness...of course, the good scanning helps.

I grew up and graduated from high school in Montesano, Washington...

Thanks for the kind words, fellas, the first shot is my fave, too. I was just
messing around experimenting, and with film, it's always have your fingers
crossed that it will turn out the way you hoped! Light is still a bit glinty this
time of year, will go back to reshoot this area again, later in the season.

Hoping my roll of BW film from the Ricohflex turns out OK.

Thanks again,

Bill

No1 for me too! I thought the hole was a round mirror at first. Makes you think

I SO MUCH love the shadows in these pictures, made by the house structure.
I mean, SO MUCH.

All your shots are excellent, my choice is for n.1 because it shows more of the shadows!

Actually, I am sure that if I was there, I would have probably made photos of the shadows only! Laughing

Thanks, everyone, it was a fun, late afternoon! If there's anything worthwhile in the 120 roll, I will post it! All of you have eyedrops by your
monitors, right? Laughing

@Chris, bag in every shot? Not funny! Evil or Very Mad Wink
@Poilu, hope to do much more film than I have in the past!
@Andy and Hacksawbob, glad you like it, the first one was an experiment that worked this time!
@Orio, I would really like to do a whole series about shadows! When I saw
how the round window and walls were casting those shadows, had to get it
on film!

Thanks again all, for your comments! Smile

Bill
