From my first roll of film ever, I was surprised when I saw it actually worked Very Happy. Zenith TTL + Helios 44M about F4 or 5.6 and a cheap Kodak negative. Converted to B&W, added vignetting and some softening.

I even didn't see your flickr site...
I just read what you say here about a year of BW seeing.
It's very interesting that I spoke to you about your BW vision. It speaks itself through your pictures.

And I have to say that it would be a pity not to take colour photos like this one here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dementedjesus/5330852448/
Please feel free to come back to few colour ones sometimes.Wink

Thank You Olivier!

There's something so pure and raw about B&W that gets lost to my eyes in color ... seeing Life in B&W will also help me focus on the 'bigger picture' and get better at composition

Well, it's a choice I made to shoot in B&W - once in awhile I will allow myself the liberty of fun shots in color and of course, based on the situation Smile I would kick myself if I went to Keukenhof and shot only in B&W for example Laughing

For portraits 2010 again I mostly used S-M-C Takumar f1.4/50,
No.6 and 7 were taken with an AF Sigma 17-70 though,
the photographer No.9 with CZ Ultron f1.8/50,
and the lady of No.10 with Takumar f2/58

all on Pentax K-x ( most of those taken with the S-M-C I had shown here before but the other half should be new )
