My imitation of some great threads in the rangefinder portion of this place:





Thanks for the new forum.

I think we should change the beverage from Coffee, however. To distinguish us. And anyway, I think the TLR crowd is rowdier, more rough and tumble, so maybe some Pisco? Or perhaps we're more refined, and perhaps bottles of red wine go better with the large cameras. I'll have to try it out and *hiccup* post a pic.

How about TLRs with any liquid that's been fermented?

Champagne goes well with any camera, but specifically well with TLRs.

Ciao

Nice thread going here! I respectfully suggest that what ever beverage one chooses to place near the TLRs, it should be a double.

I agree! That's the spirit (pun intended) of a TLR.

I took out the Rollei this morning with a roll of HP5+ and some Tri-X for backup. After I left Starbucks I enjoyed some mild spring weather and shot in some fantastic soft morning light.

A mostly retro morning. TLR, Moleskine notebook, fountain pen, coffee, and hand-held meter. Taken with a digi of course

What the TLR Forum needs first of all is a way to reach it! I don't see it listed on the list of Forums on the left side of the main page.

Nick, it's not on the front page yet, but if you click on Forum, it's listed under Miscellaneous Topics.

I regret every camera I ever sold, and the GSN was near the top of the list. I don't want to talk about the Bessaflex.

Couldn't resist another posting of the "TLR" that was the container for the beverage.



Always wondered who made these and why. Or, why not I guess.

Great shot, Melanie. The Peets coffee image hurts, as I'm a California expatriate (M.A., San Francisco State University) it vexes me that it's not available in these parts. However, we have two local businesses that produce a viable product, Bisbee Coffee Company and Old Bisbee Roasters. Probably both have websites.

Is that a Rollei lens hood?

No hood in this photo but a yellow Rollei filter (-1 filter factor). I do have a Rollei hood but no photos of it yet. I haven't noticed a difference between photos I used the hood for and photos I didn't use the hood for, but I do see a difference when I use the yellow filter vs. when I don't use a filter.

I have a green filter and a red filter as well, but I am not sure what the green filter would give me that the yellow filter doesn't already, and the red filter is rather scratched up.

Melanie .... ever thought of working without any filters at all ....

Try to compensate the filter use by composure.... and trying to use the elements filters would enhance or reduce in the composition of your image .....

Ted,

You can order Peets on "The Internets". There's nothing quite like picking up a pound of fresh beans and getting a free cup of the ultra-strong brew that comes with it, though....

Hi Ted,

There's a lot of food that it's impossible (or nearly so) to find decent versions of here in San Francisco (i.e., bagels, that are real bagels, and not fluffy; pizza that is real pizza and not some flat gourmet thing that pretends to be pizza but isn't; a Philly cheesesteak), but I will admit that I have become a fan of Peets. Oh, and also of sourdough bread, and artichokes. And really fresh sushi. And the fact that it never gets really hot, and never gets really cold, and smells like eucalyptus in the morning, and that nature is ridiculously accessible...

Is it worth the constant fear of earthquakes and the fact that practically everywhere I want to go is six hours farther away by plane than it was when I lived on the east coast? Actually, I'm not sure yet. For the most part I'd say this city was designed specifically for me to live in, but I am also a total east coast person at heart and well, it's really different here from home.

I just need to earn a lot more money so that I can at least fly first class when I have to travel.

Thanks, Mark. I'll check out the site.

Melanie - didn't know you were a right-coast person. I remember David's and Soloman's as having pretty good bagels. In SF the bread is great. Don't know if the Ukranian bakery is still going (corner of something and either Polk or Filmore) but their bread was world-class.

Oddly, here in Bisbee we have some outstanding restaurants for a town of 6,500. Cafe Roka, Santiago's, and the Copper Queen Hotel.

Then there's this little hole-in-the-wall in Brewery Gulch across from my studio that serves serious fish tacos....

Melanie and Ted - I had the same reaction to the image of Peet's coffee. Funnily enough, I too am a CA expatriate and also have an M.A. from San Francisco State Univ.! My wife and I lived in the inner Sunset - we miss it every day!

We still have lots of friends there and are residents for tax purposes, so we visit sometimes, too.

Cheers,
Alex
