The Fab Four?

Yesterday, I just got back 25 rolls of processed Kodachrome I've been shooting over the past few weeks. This is the first Kodachrome I've shot in over 30 years. This is also the first time I'm scanning the film, as digital wasn't around 30 years ago. Everything I've heard about scanning it is true. It's a challenge. I believe that mostly due to the high contrast of slide film, particularly Kodachrome.

This is a group of young men I met in downtown Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin on June 13, 2009. They do a Beatles impersonation act, and happily agreed to pose for me as I was out shooting street that day.

4th of July Fireworks

Last night I photographed the fireworks across from our house, using both digital and film (Kodachrome). It will be a few weeks before I see how the film turned out, but at least I can share a few digital pictures for now.

First shots with the 1957 Elmar 90/4

This lens is sure to prove a worthy companion to it's shorter brother, the Elmar 50/f2.8.

These shots were taken with Fuji Superia 400 @ EI 400.

I second that Elmar

My M3 kit feels just right with the 50mm/f2.8 Elmar mounted on it. But the M3 was also designed to take the long glass better than any other M, so I've been looking and looking for a 90mm Leica lens that I could afford. And last week I found it, a 1957 90/f4 Elmar in M mount, born the very same year as my M3 and the 50/f2.8 Elmar. It's from a member at RFF, and it sure looks like he knows how to care for his camera gear, as the glass is still clean and clear, and the lens barrel is not too far from that itself. Pictures taken with this lens to follow soon!

This pretty much completes my M3 kit, and probably my Leica RF kit overall.
