Hello Lamppost

I was out again last Friday with my Nikon N90s and 17mm/3.5 Tamron SP lens. While most ultrawide images are in landscape orientation, I do like the look of this lens in vertical orientation as well.

Buses By The Museum

Yesterday afternoon I went out with my Nikon N90s, a 35mm SLR I haven’t used in some time. On it I had mounted my Tamron SP 17mm/3.5 Superwide lens, also neglected for some time. The N90s has lovely ergonomics and fits nicely in the hand, and this is the first roll I shot with the Tamron lens where I feel happy with the results. Both images below were shot on PolyPan F film, developed in Ilfosol 3.


Interior Spaces

I love larger interior spaces, like these spaces in the art gallery we visited in Glasgow. all images taken with Voigtlander Bessa R Rangefinder, 15mm/4,5 Superwide Heliar lens.

An Edinburgh Album

Our first day in Edinburgh was windy and rainy, and the weather changed every five minutes during the second day but that wasn’t going to stop us! These images were created with my Voigtlander R 35mm rangefinder, with the Super Wide Heliar 15mm/4.5 mounted, loaded with Kentmere 400 film.

New Work

With my show now up on the wall, I actually have some time for new work! I finished off a roll yesterday on my Voigtlander Bessa L camera with the Voigtlander 15mm/4.5 lens. I love the dramatic perspective of this lens!


In Perspective

Today’s image was taken recently with my Leica IIIb and Voigtlander 21mm Super-Wide angle lens. Although this kind of lens does not distort an image the way a “fish-eye” lens does, depending on the angle you can still get plenty of distortion. In the image below though this is accentuated by the building itself, Toronto’s Bata Shoe Museum. (A very interesting place, well worth the visit by the way.) Its walls have a number of interesting and unusual angles, and in this image it is tricky to tell where the building ends and the lens distortion begins.
