Victor takes a break…

a well earned one. Since I purchased my Leica M9P last summer that is the camera that has been getting all my attention. Not that I wanted it that way it has just became my go camera . However. Very time I open the freezer at home I have to move a large amount of film around to get to other things. I just can’t let it all just sit there.  With that in mind I was invited to Denmark for a weekend party. So I decided to take my Hasselblad and one lens and two film backs. In addition I took my M9P and one lens too. But didn’t take it on the day I wanted to go the the harbour in the local town. I wanted to use my Hasselblad. Anything else would have been a distraction. In the short time I had I shot 4 rolls of T-max (three 400asa and one 100 asa). In the middle I went to the pub or Kro as they say in Denmark. This is todays picture . However there will be more to follow.

Oswald

I met Oswald when in the UK recently. He saw me taking shots on the market and came over to chat. His wonderful Caribbean accent fascinated me. He like myself had also lived the Southampton in the 70’s and 80’s so we had a great chat about what it was like then. At the end he graciously allowed me to take a couple of pictures of him. A wonderful meeting.

Stonehenge. (Wet plate)

You’ve heard no doubt “Re-Work Wednesday”. Well this is “Try again Tuesday” This is a shot I took at Stonehenge in 2011. Taken with my Leica MP with a Nikkor 20mm mounted via a Novoflex LeiNik converter. I used Fuji Reala film and the basis of this shot is a 1 hour lab scan. I’ve used a wet plate filter in Analog Efex Pro to achieve the effect.
