It's been a while since I've had anything of interest going on, photowise, so here's a backlog of random goodness.  We took a vacation in Wisconsin in October, and here are some pics from that:











Those were all taken with my Nikon D40.  Love the Nikon!

Here are some others, taken with this camera:



(The film I used was old crunchy Ilford PanF Safety film that we found at an antique store.  The backing paper left ghost images on the film!)





Taken with this camera...





And taken with a Brownie Hawkeye, using a red filter and some Ilford SFX 200 film (which is infrared-y!):







The black and white photos were all developed by me, and since I don't have a proper negative scanner, I'm either scanning them in on my flatbed (and that's what gives me a lot of the dust speckles) or holding them up to the computer monitor and taking a picture of the negative with my D40 (which gives me a screen and a little blurriness).  So, the pics look slightly better in real life than they do here.  Smiley

Also, here's a picture from an old (probably 40+ years) roll of film.  It was in one of my Brownie Hawkeyes when I bought it, and when I gave color processing a go earlier this year, I tried developing the film.  Here's what the negative looks like:



My scanner couldn't read this at all, so I had to do the thing where I held it up to the monitor and took a picture of it (hence, the screening and blurriness).  However, when I threw it into photoshop, inverted it, and normalized the cyan, here's the results I got:



Actual color!  From a 40 year old negative!  I was so excited I squeed all over myself.  Smiley  Squee!!  Very excited about this, and it gives me hope for my next round of trying to recover images from old negatives.

The photos are fantastic! My favs are the one with all the yellow leaves, and then the one directly below it with all those amazing clouds. The colors and textures really were awesome!

Thanks!  Oh, and we were freaking out the morning I took the pic with the dark sky and the orange trees.  The light was just so amazing, I kept making my husband stop the truck every 5 seconds so I could jump out and take more pictures.  I love weird, backlit skies!

I lived in WI for awhile when I was younger... I miss those pretty Maple leaves up North.   Smiley  I'm in TX now... a lot more barren on the tree front.   Undecided  haha. 

Nice pictures.   Wink

Beautiful! I just love the brownie shots. And I did not know you could process film that is so old. I recently purchased a beautiful old camera at an estate sale and it had a finished roll of film still in the back. I do not know much about processing (only black and white on occasion) so I took it to a couple of photo places around town and everyone just sort of snickered at me for even asking. I'm sure the images on the negatives have faded from time, but I think it would be wonderful and exciting to see the images.

Hey, Frabjous, definitely do not give up on the old film!  That's historic gold!  Smiley  Let me know what type of film it is, and maybe I could give you some advice with it.  Or, heck, if no one else wants to touch it, I'll give it a shot.  I've developed a few rolls of old film now, and it's really exciting.  I've had a few rolls where most of the frames are gone, but I've been able to get a few images from the roll.  This was from a roll of Kodak Verichrome Pan that I found in a Kodak Bulls-Eye camera:



It's not the best picture (and the scan of it makes it even worse), but still, you can see it's a little spaniel out in the snow!

I had better luck with this roll, 35mm Kodak Plus X Pan.  I got this roll of negatives off eBay:







This roll of film was between 45-50 years old, the best I could figure.

As a Milwaukee, WI native, and current resident, this pics really do the state justice! I live in the city, so I kinda miss the burbs (is that Port Washington?) and outskirts. My husband has a 40D; he loves it; I'm gonna show these to him.
