I completed my move to Rishon Le Zion. I love it there. I should have internet access at home within a week and then I will post new stuff(and do it more regularly).
I love the move.I met some wonderfull,charming people (some old,some new,some borrowed,some blue),one of which is especially wonderfull,which will be proven by pictures when I have the time and energy.
I read some books,watched some films but all of that is nonimportant.
I am as close to happy as I ever was.

I found the two lost films and dumped them at the nearest lab. My summaron is in the city's central post.Some things in my personal life look better.
I watched a ton of Monty Python's Flying Circus
I am in a great mood.

I moved more stuff to Rishon Le Zion. I shot a roll of color with my new leica m3 which returned fron a CLA by Youxin Ye with a last gen summicron loaned by a friend.It is very fun to use.I can hardly wait for my summaron to arrive from Sherry Krauter.

These are the first to come out of the monocle.Thats the way they came out of the scanner.Expired fuji proplus II.I like them.They remind me of orthodox icons.
I understand some of you must be tired of portraits by now but since I shoot them in color or trix in diafine and not tetenal it is very easy and fast to develop them and with University,the move and work I have no time to develop street films(plus x mostly) and I hardly shoot street these days. Please be patient.

This is the first scans from the first roll from the mamiya.It is unergonomical,heavy, and the mirror slap seems to chip your teeth - but it is hadholdable at 1/125(I didnt try less) wide open and is SHARP!
Watched "400 Blows"(Wonderfull acting and cinematography) and "The Good German"(great Casablanca homage)

I shot two films with the mamiya today. It's ergo is not exactly my cup of tea and shooting is handheld is a questionable pleasure(especially when you dont know how sharp will the images look).I will develop the negs tonight hopefully.

I found an apartment in Rishon Le Tsion.I am moving by September. The Mamiya reached the central mail office in Beer Sheva. I am all tingly.
Today is the sixty second anniversairy of the Hirosima bombing.

My leica is ready,and will be shipped here within a week,my summaron as well. I am still waiting for my mamiya. I managed to dent the filter rings on my nikkor 50/1.4AI and will send it to be repaired. Don't leavea camera on your table when drinking in company while gesticulating wildly.
Domany is potentialy intrested in the canon so I let him testdrive it and reskinned and reassembled my Yashica 14e - thats the only RF I have now.
I made a monocle lens out of a helios 44 and mounted it on an old zenit e.I tried shooting it with a digital camera and liked the results - the only minus is that i didnt make a diafragm for it yet and I can only shoot wide open(f2 I guess) with a maximum speed of 1/500 on the zenit.
