Why did I ever sell this camera?
When you click on any of the small images, a second window will open up with a larger image, and information about the photo. When you are through looking at the second window, if you close the window (click on the box at the upper left) this page will still be there. This saves having to reload this index page each time you come back from one of the larger images.
|Watertown, Massachusetts 1973.
Suicide by Miranda. Not a very good camera, I survived the attempt!
In Turkish, this type of vessel is called a "feri bot".

The thrill of my first 20mm lens!

The Bosphorus used to be lined with old wooden mansions like this.
DeSotos are highly prized by Istanbul cabbies.
Typical Turkish bicycle. This one was unusual in that it had two good tires, even if it lacked brakes and pedals.
This type of woven fence is characteristic of ethnic Albanian design.
|Kotor, Yugoslavia, 1974
This star-shaped bay surrounded by steep mountains was ringed with this sort of mooring fences.
Kotor is now in Montenegro, but was badly damaged by an earthquake since I was there.
I took this with the camera and lens shown at the top of this page.
|Wellfleet, Massachusetts, early '80's.|

What's the plural of "deux cheveaux"?

|Bishop's palace, Wells, England 1988.|
|Monet's garden, Giverny 1989.
A bit of photo-impressionism, using a home-made soft-focus lens, not computer trickery
(Not that I have anything against computer trickery!)
|Paul is dead!?.
(I told you I didn't have anything against computer trickery!)
A loooong skinny image of a looong skinny ship.
Bath weir, England 1974
I didn't have a tripod with me, so I propped my Retina IIc up on some coins.
|Panorama, Paris, 1989
9 images from the Retina glued together. A 208k jpeg.
September, 1998. This is a composite of 12 images made with a 100 mm Nikon lens from a window on Central Park West.
I like to play around with disposable cameras. I reload them after use. I also modify panoramic models to take full frame pictures. (Normally, panoramics only expose a 12 mm high strip down the middle of the frame, instead of the full 24 mm height of a standard 35 mm frame. This seems like a silly waste of film to me. In addition, I adapt them to take 24 exposure rolls, rather than the usual 12.
