Having no computer and no scanner sucks.Here’s some old stuff.
Three pictures of my significant other,Anna.
They are 1-2 years old.They are not posed.
She looks much better in real life.
We moved in three months ago. It is fun living with her.
The package from Oleg Khalyavin arrived at the post office with the CLA’d jupiter 12 and summitar.Total work cost – 25$.That man is a magician and a darn nice guy.
I decided to cut down my cameras to two systems+MF.
I am keeping the nikon kit and want to get a leica m2(if I can get one for the rediculous price bracket I can afford) adn the yashicamat(unless I can get a more comfy MF to replace it – like a small 6×6 slr or rolleiflex or maybe an RF of some kind – something light and comfy).
I am intrested in selling:
pentax k1000+50/2 SMC A
yashica 14e(very dead meter,rest seems ok)
zorki 4 with j-8j-12summitar 1939 uncoated(1958 and 1959) CLA’d and handpicked by Oleg(I will sell the lenses that I wont use on the leica – I hope to find it with a 35 or 50).
vilia auto (with lantanum triplet)
k mount to m42 adapter(LOMO one for ALMAZ)
m42 x2 teleconverter;set of 4 non auto extension tubes
m42 50/1.8 pentacon auto; m42 135/2.8 pallas magenta(both auto)
some 49 filters.
intrested? email me.
I’ve been to this guy’s
expo about a year in a mental hospital wonderful.I talked to him and a press photog for 40 minutes or so. Played with the press photog’s x-pan II(I like a leica M2 more. I want one. Wanna sell me one?). Neato. He shoots BW film(tmaxdelta 400) for editorial work. He told me he pushes it for high contrast up to 1600. I am shooting a roll of tmax400@1600 now as an experiment.
The exhibition was shot with an EOS 5 on tri-x. All wet printed on ilford paper. Kobi is a darn nice guy and I hope he suceeds in his further projects. He is in the market for a leica now. I enjoyed talking to him so much I forgot to ask him to sign the book(stupid!stupid!stupid!). All the book proceedings go to the hospital.
Walked around and shot a couple of rolls with the nikon with the 50 and 28.Shot some people and graffiti.
I like Tel Aviv. People are such exhibitionists they like their photo taken. It’s not a struggle like here,people don’t ask for explanations,they understand your an amateur street photographer and will talk to you about it. Lots of beautiful girls(more then average beautiful-we are in Israel-we have good looking girls everywhere).I’ve seen 4-5 potentialy anorectic girls.
I am in the AM martini(5/1 – gin/vermouth) after work(can’t sleep the night after a nightshift)
so there’s stuff:
Tom Waits – Rains dogs cover facts.interesting
was loaned a 3rd party 300/4 in m42.the glass is imaculate but there is oil on the blades and using it stop down is a pain. Shot some at 1/1000 – difficult to focus a f/4 lens with no split screen(on a pentax k1000 via adapter).The lens used to belong to a private detective.
some old pics.again.I have a lot of new stuff but just can’t afford scanning it now.
I am trying to transfer a couple of positive moments I had in the last couple of years.
canonet,ilford pan 400@800
The other one is a lazy free Sabbath at my army base – it is an 30mm ammo box with the sun shinning above it.
practika mtl3,pentacon 50/1.8(or,less likely pentax k1000+50/2A SMC),some cheap 100 or 200 kodak or fuji
Graffiti and signs – old pics
I also added a couple of pics to ht previous two posts.
About a year ago I stumbled upon an abandoned cinema
BW kodak tcn canonoet 17 QIII QL;Color praktica mtl 3;pentacon 50/1.8;kodak gold 200 or something of that sort
The Jerusalem orthodox dwellers(read freeloading bastards who dictate our lives) protested against the gay pride parade by throwing burning trash bins at passing cars etc. The goverment folded and confided the parade to Jerusalem’s University Stadium.
The pics are not new, but they seem to reflect my mood now
I finished reading Ursula La Guin’s the “left hand of darkness” – it is wonderful.
I developed a film shot with the yashica 14e – the negs look wonderfull.
I am getting my friends used computer(in a week or two it will be operational) – it is a two years old but still rather modern – and the price is very good – so I will be able to editpost my scans on an acceptable level.
Got a yashica 14e with non working meter for really cheap – now testdriving it – pics and reviews might follow.
Got 10 rolls of bulk loaded Kodak Plus X(went 50/50 on a bulk roll).
Will test it as well.
Have something like 12 rolls color and 7-8 BW in the fridge ready to be developed. I neglected the darkroom lately. I want to developprint some of the Petra BW shots but have no MF neg holdereasel so it’s improv time.
