Railroad Sunset (Hasselblad, Ektachrome)

Way back in 2002, I was taking photographs with a marvelous Hasselblad 202FA equipped with an equally impressive Zeiss lens. I got lucky late one afternoon when this scene evolved in a rail yard at sunset:

Ektachrom V100S captured the moment in stunning color, exactly as it was. There is no “photoshop” work done on this photo; it was simply scanned from the original slide. I miss that Ektachrome and the camera. Sometimes the results astounded me.

Propeller Lift

Check out this photo of a crane lifting a ship’s propeller at the Aker Shipyard in Philadelphia, PA USA:

You can see the ship, nearly completed, in the background. In the foreground at the various winches that will be installed on deck. Looking forward to getting more great photos and video of these operations.

Tall Tugboat

Here’s a photo of a tugboat with a wheelhouse way up there.

Better to see over the top of big barge. But surely rocks and rolls if the weather is rough.

Instant Film Redux

Out making tests today, and that included some instant film. Loaded a pack of Fuji FP-100c into the Hasselblad holder, attached it to the SWC/M, and here’s one of the pics.

Gives an idea of what the frame will look like. Has it’s own look, instant film does. Part retro, part impressionistic, part something else. Either way, it comes in handy to have an idea what you’re getting before you start burning film, especially with a rangefinder camera. Get out there and make some images.
