I was unable to shoot for a while so it was nice to get the chance to sneak out for a couple of hours with the Leica and a roll of tri-x.
Was a bit rusty but it felt great to shoot b&w again.
Hopefully things will be back to normal soon and I will be able to hit the streets with regularity again.
Was drawn obviously by the religious text and the burkha clad women who are standing outside a fashion jewelry store. Could not come up with a title for this image that tied all the elements together

This was a strange accident. Not sure how it happened but I liked the result. It actually happened to several images on this roll of film??
A tough life…I guess that’s always relative
Looking past the mirror
A bit precarious I thought
I also carried the Rolliflex with me even though the shutter dial was jammed and could not be set to 1/400 (max shutter speed). I was restricted to a max speed of 1/200 so I decided to use a roll of Fuji Acros 100 film and a roll of Tmax 400.
I just love shooting with the Rolli and wish I good get my hands on a slightly later model (the one I am using is a 1949 model).
cat nap – they managed to find some shade in the middle of the day
These guys were perplexed with my facing them and looking down into this strange box-like device. Went back to give them a print but not surprisingly, I couldn’t find them.
The ‘wheel’ of life
Break from life
This lady brought her daughter and her tiny baby to her job every day. The daughter and mom took turns taking care of the baby.
Once again managed to shoot this from pretty close without these men having any clue they were being photographed. Did I mention that I love the Rollieflex!
Who seems to have it the easiest?:)
A shallow DOF produced an amazing 3D look. And my focus-distance guesstimation was spot on.
Another interesting accident…no idea how it happened
Yet another family at work. The doll at the girl’s feet initially drew my attention
This was shot at a shutter speed of 1/2 second! Not bad I reckon.
And am heading out of town next month so plan to stock up on tri-x! More b&w to follow soon.
