This image was taken during a clean up in one of the back gardens in Balsall Heath, Birmingham. B'heath, btw, is one of the poorest areas of inner-city Birmingham.

A further chapter on the surreal goings-on of the internal workings of Stein Grebstad's psyche?

These must be the most extreme contrasts of photos I've seen in one sitting (great btw!!- I like all of them Very Happy )

The post tornado pic is mad- so are the rest of them- but we had another (tornado) the other day- it's getting well bloody scary round here!

As usual- I was around to the area in a flash and took some more pickies;

It would be nice to live in Norway. No tornadoes. The only thing in Norway I'm not sure about is that weird 'fish blamanche' stuff Shocked

Tornadoes are rare. But we do have some really bad whater at times. I have some pictures still on 120 film of some seriously mad stuff. When I find that box and get around to scanning those 6x7s... you will be amazed. Shocked Laughing

I like a good 67 image, I used to like 6x6 too. A square is a nice shape to compose in- it's good for portraits and Landscape stuff.

Do you remember those mad Pentax 6x7 camera's? Like an over-bloated 35mm camera? They weighed a bloody tonne!

I used to own a Leica M6, M2 and M4-P. The M4-P was loaded with kodachrome and stayed in the bag- as I tended to shoot black and white. There was a 35mm f2 summicron on the M6 (cos that had the meter) and a 21mm super-algulon on the M2. This lens was really wide and had a viewfinder that sat on the hot shoe, and the back of the lens was so long it almost touched the shutter!- But WOW what a lens!! You could set the aperture on f8 and everything from 2.5 feet to infinity was pin-sharp. It was a great lens. These Leica's were my all time favourite cameras. They were so quick and easy to use.

My digital camera is a Minolta Dimage A2- which is what these were taken with. The handling is really good- actually the main reason for getting it. (I'd say it's almost as good as the Leicas- but then they used to be pretty much the same company- so that's not surprising) There is a bit of shutter lag in automatic, but nothing too significant, and it's nonexistent if you switch to manual (focus, exposure etc).

When I'm rolling in it again (when?!?) I'm gonna get one of those Epson digital rangefinders. They are really nice- and will take loads of different lenses.

I own one. Very Happy

I kept that one and one of the Canon F1Ns. I bought a Canon 350D recently. A lovely little piece of plastic, but now I need new lenses. The new gear uses the FE series and all I have are all these nice old FDs. Shocked Crying or Very sad So, now I have to buy all new lenses for the Canon digicam.

I have a Sinar 4x5 and a Linhof in storage. One day I will set up a large format darkroom again.

The Linhof's are nice. I used to have a Cambo which was a Sinar clone- but large format was really cumbersome- although I really liked what could be done with type 55 polaroid film- the black and white stuff.

I started off as a studio photographer, but couldn't resist the challenge of the newspapers. It was really good fun at the time- but I don't think I could do it again, unless I had a 100 grand in the bank and no children!

Wow, those panorama pics are amazing! I think I recognize some of those places in or near Trondheim. The last one is on a bridge near the office of the TEK, isn't it? Not too far from the old Elektro80 studios. I remember that view very well - I think.

That is amazing.

I have a pano head too.. the manfrotto.. but I haven´t used it much yet. I don´t have that any really good wide angles lenses for the 350D . I could of course shoot panos using analog camers, but I think that is too much hassle. I prefer an all digital workflow for pano stuff unless I am supposed to shoot some ultra ultra high resolution stuff.. and that is too much of a PIA right now.
Too bad I cannot use any of the FD lenses on the 350D.

So cool. There is one in the courtyard of the museum near the old cathedral in Trondheim. What great pictures. What kind of software does one need to do this? It looks like it takes great skill too.

To your friend... salut Hail the Master Hail the Master Hail the Master Hail the Master Hail the Master

....yes, i have the 17mm rectiliniar ssc in fd mount, an amazing lense for handheld available light shots in nightclubs.

i looked up that epson rangefinder when it came up....what a nice little camera! am i correct in thinking that i can get an adaptor for my fd glass? not looking to make any purchases any time soon, but i'd like an excuse not to rid myself of it either (the vivitar series1 105mm macro is the other standout).

I once read a faq re the use of FD lenses on the Canon FE mount digicams. It won´t work.
I have been thinking of getting a few more of the Canon F1Ns and more FD lenses.

The software is a sticher type thingie. The engine is the Panotools unix toolbox and the GUI frontend is PTMAC. Enblend does the final blends/morphs. The presentation is Quicktime VR. You will also need a decent tripod and a pano-head. A high quality wide angle is nice too.
