[raulpc] week 39

This week I took out the 6006 with some long expired Ektar… love to go into the city, Lisbon here, and come with a surprise in the box, maybe an empty surprise… well, from the 12, 4 came in with something to look at… a surprise into every frame, I guess it was the light…

[raulpc] week 38 – 3:1 panoramic

Back on the tracks, with Delta100 getting old inside my diy6x17, so it was to go where everybody goes in Lisbon to see the river, the bridge, and feel the best in the city. Not the best framing in the end, its hard to get the perfect composition without a ground glass, still I liked…

[raulpc] week 37 – more pinhole 6×17

Another experiment with light and mood, trying to figure out exposure for an inside picture, with the me as a ghost showing up as intended but not quiet as I wanted. The only one with something to see on this roll. With and old TriX developed in PMK.    

[raulpc] week 36 – Abrantes

[raulpc] week 34 – Amalfi coast this summer

In Italy this summer, based in Salerno, I took a trip by boat into Amalfi Coast, Amalfi itself, Positano, Ravello and Capri. Those places are absolutely marvelous. I have a few rolls from there, b&w and color that will make the next weeks. I took with me my faithfull Rolleiflex 6006, with the regular 80mm…

[raulpc] week 33 – Delta 100 forever!

There are not many things that make me sad, but there is one thing that makes me really sad: it’s when an emulsion goes out of production! Like a friend leaving, or going away forever or into heavens… Over the years I saw some of those friends leaving and emulsions too, for example, Kodak Chromes……

[raulpc] week 32 – Summer in the city…

It’s Lisbon, and it’s hot, but I never complain, we have to accept what mother nature gives us, and we can always keep the hot memories for winter days! Sometimes I open the fridge and pick up at random a roll and stick it into a machine and off it goes with me on a…
