Out and about in OKC

A rare Saturday morning in the fall with nothing to do!  No football games, no baseball practices, no work!  Robbie and I got up early (well, not that early) and jumped on our bikes, rode down to my favorite coffee shop, Coffee Slingers.  They seem to be the only coffee shop in town that can make a real cappuccino (and not just a frothy latte).  After coffee, a cinnamon roll and a few pics, we rode down to the OKC bombing memorial.  I brought along my M6/summicron 50 with Kodak Ektar 100.  These are Wallgreens scans which I always find a bit saturated and contrasty, but saves the trouble of scanning with my CoolScan unless I need higher quality.

Springtime in Chicago – 2008

A beautiful spring day in Chicago with my new (well new to me) Leica M6.  The afternoon was a bit brisk, but still quite pleasant. Unfortunately the light was very flat   Most of these images shot with Summicron 50/2.0.  I wandered to Central Camera on Wasbash, and couldn’t help but buy a 90/2.8 Tele-Elmarit; very clean, and priced reasonably.  The picture through the iron sculpture was taken with this lens.  Film was Fujichrome 100, scans are from the local photo shop were I get my E6 developing done.  They do an OK job for web posts and 4×6 prints, anything else I scan myself with a Nikon Coolscan V-ED.
