Push the Button
OK . . . Quick updates
Yes I am still here, just on a slight hiatus from everything photo related, busy with life priorities.
Playing with film cameras, my Nikon FM2, FTN, Hasselblad 500cm, some 6×9 & 6×12 Horseman roll-film backs on my little 4×5 and a few other oddball cameras. Trying some Svema 35mm & 120 B&W film from the Film Photography Project Store (the FPP is a must for those interested in film) which looks promising for those film days walk-about shoots.
SVEMA 35mm B&W film, SVEMA 120 B&W film review forthcoming
Waiting for a new (Old camera) 35mm film camera to get here . . . a Balda Jubilette 35mm folding camera, review and tests forthcoming as soon as I get it in and check it out.
Projects on the Workbench: Super Richoflex TLR 120 camera “CLA”, undergoing a deep cleaning, dissemble/re-assemble (damn hardened grease/stuck focus problem) almost finished . . . . yea! may even re-skin it in some gaudy faux snakeskin . . .
Sadly it is just to hot, dry and nasty in the Valley as we are in a 5 year drought that is really making life miserable, farmers are seeing their livelihood dry up and go the way of Kodachrome . . . landscapes are ugly here, I could actually shoot prettier pix in Death Valley . . .
That’s it for now . . have fun . . go shoot some film . . Tim
