So, I’ve been pretty silent on sofobomo. Unless you follow me on twitter, in which case you may have seen my intermittent bitching.
This isn’t due to lack of work — I’ve been shooting, scanning, and processing this whole time. In fact, I’m almost done. But I haven’t shared any of that, for a few different reasons — I’ve had some color balance problems with my calibration solution (don’t ask), which accounts for a lot of it, and more generally, I’ve sort of felt like this is something I don’t want to spam all over the internet until it’s one.
Of course, for the same reason, I’m probably just going to drop the sofobomo PDF in a hole when I’m done and do something completely different as the real output for the project. The issue is the 35-image limit — not because I don’t have enough images, and even (quite) because I don’t have enough good images — but because this project, and really most projects, I think, are not really well-served by a glut of images, which is what this amounts to.
Of course, this is probably just a failure of imagination on my part…I think next time I do sofobomo, if I do, I need to plan out several more or less discrete sub-topics…
Anyway, so as not to leave you dry, image-wise, let me drop a couple of shots from the 60mm f/5.6 that brought my Koni-Omega back into action after two, count ‘em, two 90mm lenses failed me. Unfortunately, it’s missing the finder, but I should be able to snag one on ebay if I’m patient.
Do click through and look at the larger sizes.
Needless to say, I am extremely pleased to have the K-O functioning again. Leica, shmeica. This is a rangefinder.
