Camera Gear  - 
 
Garage sale score - Petri 7s with accessory lenses, finder, manual, case, filter holder. $7.00!

Busted rangefinder but camera seems to work well otherwise. I took the top off and one of the mirrors was actually broken in half. I super glued it together and put it in place, but the rangefinder image is very dim and I don't trust the distance since it isn't calibrated.

Loaded a roll of film and I'll see hot it comes out. I figure the lenses themselves will bring the purchase price on eBay if I decide not to keep it.

I just completed a 36 exposure roll through my Leica IIIf and, sadly, it appears to be dramatically underexposed and/or under developed. The negatives are super thin, but there IS shadow detail so I know that at least part of the problem is under development. I guess my developer was on the shelf too long. It still looked good (it turns dark when it is 'bad') but may have lost potency. At the same time, the shots all appear to be 3-4 stops under so I am suspicious that the old girl needs a CLA and maybe my shutter speeds are malfunctioning.

I was able to salvage the images, though the quality of most of them is quite low. The image below is really not too bad but needed a lot of processing to get to this point.

Moments like this remind me of the things I DO like about digital :-)

I had Wellgo B136 pedals I loved, but one self destructed after a year. They only have a single roller bearing and an inboard bushing so not super durable.

The LBS sold me on a pair of Giant downhill pedals with a very large platform, double roller bearings and a center bushing, and still lighter than the Wellgos. I think I'm going to like them and I really hope they hold up since they were twice the price of the Wellgos!

December mountain biking in Pennsylvania is usually dicey at best, but thanks to a strong El Nino this year, I was out riding in SHORTS today! Temperatures were around 50F and it was glorious to be out riding on a sunny Sunday.

Yashica FX-2 50mm

Shot at f11

Ultramax 400 B&W film processed in Adorama liquid developer for 12 min

My first roll of Ultramax. I really like this film, when exposed properly it has a nice fine grain and good tone range. Exposure latitude seems a little narrower than tri-x or even the Kentmore I have been shooting, but I can adjust.

I loved this story in print, and it is even better with the multi media additions. Great stuff.
Fear and lightning on the untrammeled trails of the Georgian high Caucasus.

LIFESAVING STRATEGY: Finding Strength
I'm in love with B rad Fountain .
Not romantically, of course. Something better. He's one of my heroes
and he gives me strength. I will never bike 112 miles, run 26.2 miles,
or swim in bad ocean currents for 1 hour 55 minutes. All in ONE DAY. But

A wonderful little hotel in one of the best neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Rooms are small and simple, clean and comfortable. The hotel is beautifully decorated with a modern feel. Amenities of the hotel are minimal, but in this neighborhood that is a non issue. Breakfast was fresh and delicious and the staff was always ready to cheerfully serve. I read some complaints about noise from the surrounding restaurants and clubs, but I can honestly say it was a non issue in my room (situated near the middle of the building but with a window). My single complaint? WIFI is free but disconnects every time your device sleeps. Annoying but certainly not a deal breaker. No doubt I would stay here if I visit Buenos Aires again.

This place is crazy, let's just get that out of the way. Always a long wait on the phone, in person, whatever. Nevertheless, they are experts and they stand behind their work and the parts they sell. If it is VW related they either have it or can get it.
