Very nice.

It's become my go-to combination. I'm just in love with the Rollei as a tool because it does what it does so very very well. After the 34 rolls of film in Paris, I've pretty well decided it is the perfect travel camera. Now if I could only find a Rolleiwide for a reasonable price… :D

Yep… I was just recently in Paris for a week. I'll just say, I wish I had taken only my lovely Rollei 3.5F - and only it - on that trip. Oh, well… next time!

Now we're getting somewhere. Nice one!!
This is gonna be a good MSA

I think I'll make some pinhole images hand held for 40 seconds or so with my converted Gevabox (120 roll film, 6x9 cm negatives) ...

Well, wow again! This MSA is only 4 days old and we've got a handful of great entries already!

Thanks Fly, for yours. I like the subway one especially.

Thank you for the welcoming message. Frankly, no idea what houseboats are called in French as I am neither a native speaker, nor, regrettably, am fluent in.

Other than my kids, trains is mostly what I do (wife won't let me shoot naked women).

I made one Saturday, and it might be an interesting print, but maybe not so good for MSA. Yesterday my 12 year old daughter and I spent a couple hours driving around looking for ideas. It was fun because she randomly picked where we would go ( "turn left!" "turn right!" "Go THAT way!" ) so we wandered all over the county and had fun taking pictures. We found several "transport" ideas, but none that really grabbed my fancy yet. I've got other some ideas to explore still....

Some great entries so far!

Excellent shot!! Great composition and timing. I like it.
Tell us how you did it.

Great idea! My daughter wants to learn analogue photography and this will be a nice assignment for her to practice shooting her second roll of film.
Thanks for the tip!

Bert, my daughter has a pink "disney princess" 35mm camera that is fun. She also likes pinhole photography ( and her p&s D1g1+@L camera too ). She's ready for the Olympus XA that my wife gave her.

She has an eye for composition that it is better, freer, more creative than mine. Yesterday she took a picture of a stack of big apple crates ( for transport-ing apples... ) that was wonderful. She found a dramatic perspective so the stack was the big main subject but with the rows of apple trees leading up to them and fading off into the distance. It's very fun to go out taking pictures with her.

I think we'll try making prints in the darkroom sometime this year. I was about her age when I first did it.

That is from my Rolleicord Va on TMax 100. TMax developer per instructions. That is a negative scan, though I have printed it. I wander around the city when I can get away from work and see what I find. Got lucky on that one. People say YOU GOTTA HAVE A TRIPOD!! Well, you don't GOTTA HAVE A TRIPOD all the time.

Great entry Hachetman! I especially like the billboard. It's those little details that count.

This is something different for me, but when I saw this negative I decided it was worth making a print. Some time ago Bert and I chatted about building a fixed focus camera. I built a 5x7 prototype that I wasn't happy with, and I had this 1914 lens reserved for 8x10. This weekend I finally made the bigger camera and this picture was the first. I went to this place I'd been eyeing for MSA and was supposed to remove the front lens element before making the exposure, but I forgot, so it was focused at about 3 or 4 feet! But honestly I think I like this result better than the photo I was trying to make. It is a contact print from a paper negative.

Last week taken with an old TAHBES Syncho camera (1948). Very low quality but it still works!
