Summer Flowers

On my way to work the other day, I stopped by to take a few flower photographs near a busy intersection.  All the commuters must have thought I was nuts.  But stopping by for 10 minutes to enjoy the beauty is not too bad, is it?  Taken on Olympus om-1n film 35mm camera with Kodak Ektar 100 film.  135mm for the yellow flowers and 50mm f/1.4 for the rest.  V550 scans.  

Malmo through the lens of Olympus 35 RC

A small set of photographs taken in Malmo, Sweden with ancient Oly 35 RC cam.  Film used was Ilford HP5+ pushed to ISO 800 and developed in D76 1:1.  I encountered several modern shapes which seemed to work well by themselves, or blended with the older formations made by man.  The train station also provided some interesting opportunities.

Chicago Chinatown Visit with Rollei & Ilford HP5+

Chicago Chinatown is situated south of downtown Chicago.  It is an interesting and vibrant community.  This was my first visit.  I used my Rollei 35mm camera because it provided autofocus and full automation with film, so I could focus more on the photographs.  I am attempting to develop my street photography skills, so this set is about the people in this interesting location.  Enjoy.  

Olympus 35 RC Rangefinder Video Review

I purchased this camera on Ebay a few months back, as my first attempt to get back into film photography and enhance my overall photography experience. I read some great reviews about this fun little cam, and I thought to give it a shot. I have run a few rolls through it now, and it's a keeper! Love the compact size, ease of use, metering, and overall sharpness. Here is a little video to go along with the post:
