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

Pebble Beach 17-Mile Drive …

Pebble Beach 4  _ SFW_21 Dec 12

One more from my files.  This is another from the trip we took to San Francisco back in 2000.  This is before I went digital, so this is from a 120 b&w negative scan.  This is looking out over the Pacific by the Pebble Beach Country Club on the Seventeen Mile Drive loop that is one of the prettiest drive that you will ever take.  When we were standing at this park where this view is located, I looked around and out of a crowd of two busloads full of people, Pam and I were only people speaking English … everyone else was Japanese!  Or what sounded like Japanese to me.  The world is truly getting smaller … Thanks for looking.  Frank

This is one from our trip to San Francisco back in 2000.  This was made somewhere along the 17 Mile Drive through Pebble Beach.  It was made on TMax 100 with my Hasselblad and then scanned.  This was before I went digital, so I have rolls of film and transparencies that I plan on scanning in the years to come.  Thanks for looking …
