Paris in Monochrome: Street Scenes

It is somewhat hard for me to characterize this set of photographs, because they fall into a strange space somewhere between travel, street and snapshot photographs.  I always enjoy Paris, but it was difficult for me to focus on only one style - or even on only one camera - the entire time I was there.  I always try and compose the best I can under the circumstances, but some were taken in a rush, or while exiting or entering various Parisian venues.  Still, there are a few that are dear to me - and a few that may even tell a story - if you stop and listen. 

Technically, Leica M3 with 50mm Summicron F/2 DR lens was used, while films ranged from Ilford FP4+, Delta 100 for daylight and Delta 400 shot at 800 for dark / low light shots.  The low light shots were taken on Olympus XA.  They were developed in house, scanned and processed in Photoshop CC.  White frame added for effect.

Barcelona Snapshots

This is a selection of film photographs taken in and around Barcelona, Spain.  Barcelona is a beautiful city, but I found it somewhat difficult to photograph.  Many small streets, narrow passages, and lack of light in certain situations.  I hope these give you some sense of place and people there. Enjoy!

Photographs were taken with Leica M3 / 50mm Summicron and with Olympus OM10/24mm Zuiko.  Films used are Ektar 100 for color and Delta 100 / Pan F 50 for black and white.
