Nostalga Time: Pentax 67
« on: November 12, 2023, 03:37:23 pm »

Originally posted this 9 years ago on Facebook. Hard to believe I made this image 45 years ago. My taste and technique have not  changed! For those interested, I used a medium format Pentax 67. This image was made from a scan of the original negative. Given that I used  medium format film (6x7 cm--2.25"x2.75") I can make very big prints of this image, one of my favorites. It was shot day after Thanksgiving on a trip to Beach Haven to visit my Mom. Memories!

I would simply say that nice/beautiful photos stay nice/beautiful, even after so many years.

I like this one very much with the backlit cloud, the sun rays the fence and the ocean.

Thank you Francois. At age 86, I still shoot pictures, albeit not as often. I must confess, that my digital cameras with IBIS are a game changer for me, as I do not like carrying and using a tripod. Yes the Pentax 67 was quite a lovely camera. I also used the Pentax 645 (and later the 645D). The manual focus Pentax lenses are really great.
Happy Thanksgiving to our USA friends. ;)
Dave :)
