NEW YORK NEW YORK – I’m continuing to experiment with film – today shooting medium format with my Mamiya 7. This camera, which is effectively a great big plastic Leica (getting 10 6x7cm images on a roll of 120 film), is noted for its remarkable lenses. Mamiya, for example, copied the design for the lens on the Hasselblad Superwide and actually improved on it in the 43mm wide angle (giving the equivalent angle of view of the Hasselblad Superwide or a 21mm lens on a full frame digital camera). The scans came out beautifully. I’m including a small gallery to give you a sense of how these are coming out.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – A rushed day – today I literally took one picture – a butt depository in the alley behind our building. But at least the light is good. My Leica Nonochrom turning the mundane into mumdane plus.

DICKSON TENNESSEE – You read that correctly. We made a flash trip down here on some personal business. Images taken with my Leica Monochrom. I’m getting good use out of my relatively new Leica 90mm macro lens.
