More from that particular roll of HP5+ from 2011. Bessa R3M, 15mm lens.

I’m currently suffering from a photographer’s block (cf. writer’s block), but I must admit that looking at these shots make me want to go out and do some serious shooting. I like the dramatic effect of the 15mm lens, I like the contrast, and yet the subtlety of B&W film; yes, I should pick up the hobby where I left it.

Go out and shoot! (He said to himself.)

    What would that 15mm’s equivalent be in 35mm terms?

    Okay, completely disregard my question! :-/ Um, that 15mm would be 15mm, Jeff! Sorry, I thought your camera was a medium format, until I Googled it to make sure I wasn’t making a fool of myself with the question… um, yeah, you was, Jeff! 🙂

    Carry on, nothing to see here!

    It’s indeed rather close to 15mm in 35mm terms, yes, as you figured out. 😉

    What I like in your recent images and writings is humor. It is always enjoyable to read what you write. It is full of light sarcasm and humor, great! Thank you for it!

    Richo, if it gets a smile on your face, then I’m happy. I saw a post on your site (I still have to read it in detail, though) that tells me you could use a smile every now and then, even though that is not a solution.
