Out West _5x4_RTP_26 April 16 _ SFW


Shot on 4×5 Kodak film years ago.  And this image is sharp.  I had forgotten about this image until I ran across it a week or so back.  I have others from this area that I am going to scan and work up to post.  I have been busy with other projects over the last few months and I have ignored my two blogs in favor of Instagram.  I have mentioned my Instagram before … frankphardy … and I do not plan on giving up on these blogs and will get back around to posting on them more in the future.  Thanks again for looking and please check back with me … Frank

Pebble Beach  5 _Flat_Lucis_19 Jan 15 _SFW

This was taken back in 2000 out at Pebble Beach California with a Hasselblad on Kodak TMax100 … there is a word that I have not used in a long time – Kodak.  It is hard for me to believe that there is no longer Kodak film for professional photographers.  If you would have told me that in 2015 you could no longer buy a roll of film from Kodak ( except on EBay … what’s EBay? ) back in 1985, I would say that you are crazy.  Back then, Kodak was the number one vendor at any photography trade show that you attended … their booth / display was front and center when you entered the trade show.  Every attendee to the trade show walked around with a yellow Kodak bag carrying all of their literature from all of the businesses in the trade show.  In fact, I wish that I still had one of those yellow Kodak plastic bags for old times sake.  I can remember when Ilford started giving Kodak a run for their money and photographers started walking around with those black and white Ilford bags.  Sorry, I did not mean to ramble on … Thanks for looking and I have a few more of these scans to post in the future … Frank
