This is a sample from my personal photographic archive, posted as one of over a thousand examples of my photography here on EMULSIVE. While occasionally pretty to look at, these photographs mostly serve to show some of what’s possible with film photography.

  1. Getting back to B&W where I started in the mid 50’s. Yes I am an octogenarian
    Just purchased a Leica D Lux 7. Plan to shoot in bw if possible
    Meanwhile I’m going to start with my Mamiaflex G in bw as well as my Canonet
    Yes I have and like use my older film cameras including Nikons.
    Don’t operate my darkroom any more looking for a good film processor. Any suggestions ?

  2. Ohhhh such a nice picture with many character.
    Great old lens which gives something special. Canon LTM are winner, easy to find one nearly mint for a very good price.
    Not a uggly lens made in dictature, all these kinds of something “artisan”, artisan of very very big mass production and dictature country number one pollution maker.
