Some pictures I took recently with my Rolleiflex, using Fuji Neopan Acros B&W film - developed at home with Ilford LC29 (1 + 19) and the negatives scanned with an Epson V500.

A few B&W pictures taken with the Contax IIa


Downshire St, the Rocks, originally uploaded by jiulong.


I have rediscovered the joys of using the Contax IIa again - it is great to use with B&W film - and the 21mm Biogon lens works especially well with B&W. I was also trying out a pre-war 50/2 Sonnar lens on a few of the pictures (I bought a Contax II on ebay and turned out to be a dud, but the lens isn't too bad).
