From January 3, 2016

Prospect Park, en route to Meadowport Arch. 

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! 

So thank you anonymous mother and daughter!

And the dog was fine. 

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.
