More from the Beast - Positive and Negative

I am becoming addicted to the Pentax 67II. I seem to just work well with this camera and get around 6 out of every roll (that is 10 shots on a 120 roll) that I consider as “keepers”. That is high. The meter seems to be very accurate and I have yet to encounter an exposure problem - even with notoriously fickle positive film. This set is from Asakusa, where I reeled of one roll of Portra 160VC and one roll of Velvia 100. All were taken with the same 105mm F2.4 lens. They do show the difference in colour treatment between the negative film and the rather loud positive film. Both seem to work in this case…..

I love this shop just outside of the temple. It seems to be dedicated to older performing artists and is decorated in their posters. It is a subject I will take a few more of to ensure i get it just right. The bike made a good counterpoint. This is on Kodak Portra 160VC - expired in 2011.

The main lantern at the temple entrance. Garish colours, but a suitable subject - Fuji Velvia 100.
