Part of my container garden this summer in the Dog Free Zone. I grew hot chilis, herbs, flowers, and, in particular, milkweed. You can see the milkweed seed pods have opened, and the seeds are waiting to blown away by the wind. The milkweed is food that is important to Monarch butterflies, but I have heard that the milkweed with colored flowers is not good for the butterflies. I want to do a bit of research on this – what if all is for naught?
Once more, this is a photo using my 1937 Welta Weltur and Ilford XP Super 400 film. The Xenar lens is stunning, with lovely detail and softness at the same time. I really like what it can do.
This is a B&W version of a panorama I took with my 1937 Welta Weltur. Two images sewn together in Photoshop, and then turned into black and white. Old glass which is uncoated gives a characteristically different look to film, whether in color or black and white. You can see the color version here.
When I scanned the images from the first roll of film through the Yashica D TLR, I think I scanned them at 3600. They are BIG! I wanted to see the details capable of the camera and the lens, and I was honestly really, really pleased. Here on offer is a portion of a picture I took of leafy plants nestled in the dappled sun beneath an oak tree along the Moonrise Trail. The Yashinon lens does a superb job altogether. This is about 1/10 of the original picture.
