Instant Astrology | Harvard Square, MA. | Redux

This is a repost of an image I really like. This was a scan, I reworked a bit. It says a lot to me.

When you need to know your future “instantly”, you need to visit the Instant Astrologer, in Harvard Square. I took it in the late 70’s, early 80’s. I spent a lot of time wandering around Boston and Cambridge then.

I was using a Canon F1, I believe. I’m not sure what film I was shooting with but I was always experimenting.

To me it’s the content that matters the most…

O’Brien’s Castle | Cliffs of Moher | County Clare, Ireland

I don’t remember what I used to shoot these images, probably a Canon F1 or a Contax 139 film camera. The images are digital scans from prints. I was surprised at the results from my inexpensive Canon scanner. But I did have to spend some time on post.

The West of Ireland is a rugged, natural, beautiful place. But the natives are friendly. ;-)

This image is from a series of images I shot in the mid 80s while visiting friends in France. The landscapes were taken from the top of the Arc de Triomphe and are scanned from print. lb

The search for real black | Kodak TMax 100 vs. Ilford Pan FPlus 50 | L Brady

I was trying to think of something more to say on this but I’ve got nothing! I want real black not muddy brown.
Obviously I’m interested in B/W film. Sometimes I think I would throw all my camera gear away for the simplicity of one very good film camera. Maybe I will. ;-)

These shots were taken with a Nikon F5 and Nikon 24mm lens. I used a 056 Orange Nikon filter on the Ilford Pan and nothing with the Kodak.
They were both developed and enhanced digital scans produced.
