Paper umbrellas in Japan are a fun subject for the casual tourist, see here. 🙂
The camera I bough in my youth; I had the choice between the Pentax MX and the Pentax ME; the Pentax ME Super only released later. So many of my rolls of film passed through this one 🙂 It is now semi-retired. Aperture: ƒ/1.5 Camera: SM-G960F Exposure bias: +1/10EV Focal length: 4.3mm ISO: 100 Shutter…

After the Pentax ME and the Pentax ME Super I already owned, I now invested in a Pentax MX. The size of the Pentax MX does resemble the Pentax ME family of cameras, but it is completely different in handling and details. Clearly designed by different teams with different directions. The Pentax MX has clearly…
Early 1960s pancake fish-eye lens, easy to use as there is no focusing, a bit slow as the widest aperture is f/11. I’m using the GOBE M42 lens to Pentax K Mount adapter for this lens.
I bought an adapter for my Pentax K-mount cameras to use my Pentax 6×7 lenses. Check here for more information about shooting the first roll on my Pentax ME Super camera. I used my S-M-C Takumar 6X7 105mm f/2.4 lens for the whole roll, loved the results! Aperture: ƒ/2 Camera: HUAWEI VNS-L31 Flash fired: no…

Forget about close-up filters, bellows is the way to go! Mount the lens in reverse to get even closer. Aperture: ƒ/2 Camera: HUAWEI VNS-L31 Focal length: 3.8mm ISO: 640 Shutter speed: 1/20s
The photo shows it with my SMC Pentax-M f/2.8 40mm lens mounted. A super camera! If you got one, use it! Aperture: ƒ/2 Camera: HUAWEI VNS-L31 Focal length: 3.8mm ISO: 320 Shutter speed: 1/25s
No chimping, can you use it? Shooting this photo on January 1st.

Must be the moustache, but I was reminded of the Buddy Christ in the film Dogma. Shot on Kodak TRI-X film at EI 800, developed in HC-110 dilution B for 10 minutes, agitation: 2 inversions every 30 seconds Camera: PENTAX ME Super Focal length: 50mm ISO: 800
Picked up a “new” camera with lens for a song, always wanted one of these. The camera is almost like new, the previous owner must have barely used it. Lucky!! I bought a Pentax ME when it first came out with an SMC Pentax 50mm f/1.7 M lens but that camera is permanently operating in…

We were at Taiyo-ji temple for a great temple stay (shukubo) for the second time in a few years and I liked the symmetry of the old phone they had on the wall. Shot on KODAK TRI-X film at EI 400, developed in HC-110 dilution H for 11 minutes. Agitation: 2 inversions every 30 seconds….

The ever continuing hunt for souvenirs to bring back to the folk at home or at the office who were lucky enough to stay at home, it’s an immense industry in Japan. Seen at Chichibu Seibu Station. Fujichrome Velvia RVP100F Camera: PENTAX 645NII ISO: 100
The last few rolls of ADOX CHS 100 ART film that I used turned out to be very spotty, I ruled out the chemicals as I use one-shot developer and fixer and I use the same chemicals and de-ionized water for all films which turn out to be fine. Anyhow, I have been thinking about…
A pretty weird cloud over Luxembourg, even made the local newspapers but I like my photo better. The cloud caught the last rays of the setting sun and showed some amazing colours, changing very quickly.
