Thanks, it does have a slight lean. I intentionally made two adjustments to the camera to improve the framing before taking the shot (that is after levelling up); a little back rise and a little front shift. The Toyo camera has many knobs and levers so it looks to me as if I might have had a bit of front swing on by mistake. Either the front standard wasn't locked off or I hadn't zeroed it correctly. Anyway I didn't notice it at the time.I really like the living room shot, Peter. Lovely interest in there. I feels like it's leaning to the right a little, but I'm just picking nits.
Love this shot @Plankton - I spent a good ten minutes looking at it trying to work out if it was taken in modern times or 30 years ago! There's not much in the shot to give away the date.
Thank you Mr B for thinking of me.
Thanks for the kind words, as long as the food is to their liking and keeps coming then I'm sure your cats won't mind the language barrier! Kitty is my mother's cat, she was a totally wild feral cat, and probably around 9 months old when she turned up 3 years last March in my Mum's garden, where she chose to live part way up a dense fir tree. Kitty was painfully thin, very sparsely furred and suffering from a terrible cold, to the extent that you could hear her chest rattling if you stood near the tree. She would certainly have died if Mum hadn't won Kitty's trust in time to lure her into the house one rainy night with the smell of a roasting chicken! The door was quickly shut behind her and she's been in residence ever since!Thank you Mr B for thinking of me.
A lovely cat you have there.... I’m missing mine atm as I’m sure they are missing their top notch tin opener .... Me! lol
My two ( well all three upto losing Marcus recently) were bilingual and always knew if I was annoyed with them as I would speak in English ( more foul words available than in French lol)
In fact the two girls might even understand Italian too as they are presently being looked after by an italien friend.
Welcome to the forum and a lovely first post.Hello. I'm new to the forum and this is actually my first post.
From time to time I shoot on 35mm film. I develop negative in a local lab and digitalize myself.
Here is one shoot with Canon EOS 5, scanned with my old photo magnfier and EOS 60D with macro lens 60mm f2.8 attached.
A bridge to island Krk in Croatia. At a time it was built, it was the longest bridge arch worldwide. Shoot with EOS 5 and 70-200L f2.8 lens.
That's a cracking picture @Plankton. Beautiful colours, interesting subjects, and a nice sense of story - particularly the camera shy fellow on the left.This one is taken on Ektachrome 64 in Regent's Park in the summer of 1990.
One of the best things about lockdown is that I've spent time looking over old negatives and transparencies and I've rediscovered the love for film.
I'm now on the hunt for a camera the same as I originally used, a Nikon FE2 and 50mm lens.

I just look through the viewfinder and then check with the magnifyer while tweaking the focus wheel slightly until it looks as sharp as possible.All your Yashica shots are sharp! How do you manage that? Despite a new mirror and a new screen, I find focussing on mine next to impossible.
