A lovely pair of women, mother and daughter. The daughter has the new-to-her Canon F-1, and the mother had the Leica M7 that she so thoughtfully set on the ground so I could get it in good light. The mother is going to get the daughter into the darkroom ASAP.
I met these people as I entered the park during offleash hours for dogs. We bring our one-year-old dog here most mornings so she can run and play off some energy. When I greeted the film photographers and explained my blog, they were willing participants. As I was asking about their cameras, my dog broke free and took off. Then my Fujifilm X100T I was carrying “forgot” its memory card at home. And I left my smartphone at home. I apologized that I didn’t have a digital camera to shoot their cameras, and the older woman enthusiastically told me to use my camera–the Bessa L hanging around my neck. Of course! The real camera!
NOPE, THIS IS NO PHOTOSHOP FAKE! 24h of Le Mans in 1985 and the runner-up Porsche 956C of Jonathan Palmer (GB), James Weaver (GB) and Richard Lloyd (GB). Panned by me with 1/60s by using a Canon New F-1 LA1984 with FD 1.2/85L lens equipped with a so-called ‘Speed Filter’ by the French company Cokin.
