The Heat Wave

The heat is coming in waves, interrupted by short evening rains and warm humid nights. It is hard to stay in the streets more than an hour. To lure myself out, I bought a new old camera -- beautiful and heavy Nikon F5 -- and now trying it for street photography:) Most of the pictures in this post were still taken with Olympus Stylus Epic P&S; the last two are Nikon F5 with 50mm lens; Ilford HP5+ film exposed at E.I.800 and developed in Diafine.

The last few days of decent weather...

The hot and humid South Florida summer is around the corner; it is becoming increasingly hard to stay in the streets for a long time. Shot on Tri-X 400 with Bessa L/25mm. The last two are night shots on Ilford Delta 3200 film exposed at E.I.8000 in Leica M2 camera with 21mm Voigtlander lens and developed to E.I.12500 in Tmax Developer (13 min at 74F/25C)
