A Big Win For San Francisco

with 3 comments

Well, there you have it. The Giants won the World Series with a 4 game sweep, and San Francisco went crazy! I observed the pandemonium from the back seat of a friend’s car, stuck in traffic in the city:

Go Giants!

…and go Suki! I tried to put a Giants hat on her here but she wouldn’t have it.

A Roll Of Ektar

with 14 comments

This week’s roll is Ektar 100, a fantastic color negative film that I ran through the M3. The Ektar sports some really fine film grain as well as fantastic color reproduction. Pretty happy with the film overall.

I’ve been getting a few questions about how I process and scan each roll. Simple answer? I take all my film to Light Waves Imaging, a full service professional lab here in San Francisco where I get all my film processed, scanned, and printed. I can even get very uncommon formats processed, like the 127 I shoot with my old Ansco. Their chemistry is spot on, and I’m always thrilled with the results I get from their services. Here are most of the shots from my latest roll of Ektar:

The Rangefinder

with 22 comments

I’ve been searching for a Leica M3 for a good long time, and got a fantastic deal from an original owner who purchased this beauty in Munich back in 1961. I couldn’t believe how well he cared for it. I loaded the first roll of film I could get my hands on and started shooting right away.

In the week since I got it, the camera has been everywhere with me, and I’m absolutely hooked! First roll is back from the lab, and I’ve posted a few frames from it below:
