My daughter walking the dogs.

Happy surprise shot from about 70-80 meters away.

Shot taken with my RB 67 & 180mm KL on TXP, developed in DD-X.

Printed 11x14 Adorama pearl MG paper grade 2 in LPD.

Significantly cropped, my LPL enlarger was pushed all the way to the top of the column with a Nikon 50mm f2.8 lens installed.

Looks good. Could have dodge the dogs a little.

Thanks. As is normal, the print is better. (My scanner, a D200, tried to "fix it" and I didn't spend a lot of time trying to fix that.)

So who else has portraits?

I've got some at the home computer. I will post them when I get back home. Nice looking portrait, Mark. I agree the added contrast probably doesn't help the display here.

This should be a bit better.

The light is really nice. Must be windy with the hair across her face. Good casual portrait.

My good friend Sima with her daughter Elsa.

This scan is of the negative, although I have printed it. But I gave the prints to Sima already.... Sorry, the neg scan has some obvious problems. I still like the picture.

Thanks, Mark. I hope to make another print for myself soon. For some reason I've been really drawn to making portraits lately and have been lining them up one after another. It's so much fun, and probably my favorite form of photography.

Here's another of my friend Eunjung and her son Chaylen. I spent a wonderful weekend morning with them and the child was in such a good mood. Since I bring a camera almost anywhere I go, this was very spontaneous. Just the way I like it.

Very interesting portrait. Makes me wonder where you are, and what this guy has been through to get there. Interesting signage too. One on each side of his head... :)

Thanks Thomas. He is an interesting/tragic character. The photo is a very good representation of his less than easy/glamorous life.

The context, including the portrait he's holding, really does beg lots of questions.

Here's one-- good friend and backpacking buddy in Aravaipa Canyon during Sunrise. Sorry about the soft 'scan' but it's a quick snap from my 5x7 work print.

This made me realize that my backup Pentax has a bad backfocus issue... I still like it, though!

Surely, there are others doing portraits...

Come on guys and gals, trying to start a monthly tradition here.
