I loaded a new set "Iron Curtain" on my flickr erwinruys fotostream. Made 30 or 40 years ago, with my Canons and (probably) the Soligor 350mm, Vivitar 70-210mm, Canon 1,4 50mm and maybe even a Komura 135mm or a 1,4x extender. I still have the Vivitar series1. The HP Scanjet added to that "soviet"-feeling...

Next week is full of celebrations: Valentine, Carnival, Olympiad, Birthday, and ONE YEAR BLOGGER! Therefore a rather nostalgic photo from the seventies: a 2x3 mtr collage I made for Vroom & Dreesman. (Smalls: movie Maasproject and exposition sportsfotos Sportzeichnung)

This is a very remarkable photograph. First: look at the quality of this 80+ box! But there's more: the sticky-paper of that very old FP3 tore the film, it didn't fit in a drum so I had to develop it the victorian way: Rodinal in the dish, left hand up, right hand down etc. 10 minutes in total darkness and look: no scratches!
For instructions on 120 to 116 and many other weird combinations see my Flickr Photostream set "120 film in..."
For the "darkroom struggles" I recommend the set "Old film in old cameras".

February, I'm looking out of my window: it's coming down! Snow. So: discussion. My point: ask any Inuit, Saami, painter or Dutch driver - snow is not white. And worse: I don't àlways want it to be! Not in photographs. A photo, for ME, is a composition in light and dark, and if, by chance, the darker part is a lamp, and the lighter part is the asphalt street: that's OK for me! I only see the composition. Mondriaan.
Jeroen did use a Y 1,5 filter on his 12 cm Macro Planar; TXP 320 two stops over (for white snow) in Ilfotec. I had the mon-chou-cake and 2 espressos.
