Digital alert: Elizabeth Bay


Elizabeth Bay 2, originally uploaded by jiulong.

Sorry, but I'm finding the Camera+ app on my iPhone irresistible for snapping the odd shadow and scene here and there. So much easier than taking out the Leica or Rolleiflex from my backpack while walking round Sydney and seeing something that captures my eye. These are all done with the 'Contessa' (homage to Zeiss?) special effect.

Chowder Bay by Rolleiflex

The next few B&W pics are from a walk I took from Taronga to Balmoral on Saturday 5th March 2011. I took my Leica M2 and tried the Summitar 50mm lens for a while, but most of the Leica pics were taken with the 35mm Elmar. I also took my Rolleiflex 3.5F and you can see the excellent results I got with B&W film - well, I like them!
