Welcome New Blogger Friends!

Welcome New Blogger Friends!  Each "Decade" I post a special B&W Image to say thank you for joining us!


  1. and I'm climbing a stair way to heaven.... Led Zepplin
    Very nice photo.

  2. I thought of that too! This will certainly be one of the first prints that I make in the darkroom.

    I need to give an update about the darkroom too!

  3. Very nice. Also, just to let you know, I have joined the world of Minolta! I friend from my wife's job said her husband had an old camera that he wanted to get rid of and was going to "toss it" since nobody shoots film anymore. The wife mentioned that I might be interested and he said that I could have it and if I did not think it was any good the throw it away. I have a pristine, barely ever used, not a scatch on it, perfectly sealed X-700 with a 50mm f1.7 MD. The joy that floods my soul! I still need to develop roll number one, but will do that soon.

  4. Great work in traditional photography, congratulations!

  5. Hey Silvertooth, I have two X-700's. I'll be using them in my next film test. For color I generally shoot in Auto mode, with some adjustments for the metering. If you have any questions, let me know ;=)

    1. Thanks! I might have some questions about lenses. All I have is the 50 1.7 right now. I haven't decided whethter to get a zoom or stick with primes. The "Leica" zooms sound interesting, though.
