    Cool Photo Gifts?

    I got a Rondinax 35U and a bottle of Rodinal for Xmas.

    How about you guys? Any other cool photo stuff in the stocking?

    Congrats on the Rondinax! But be carefull, they breed just like russian rangefinders... I know a fella who got one.... another... now he has six of them in the shelf, one of each variation, still hunting for the kind with the "special manual" - showing a family in front of a tent, surrounding the father using the Rondinax on a camping table.

    I own just a 1958 35U and a 60, both are cute and a charm to use. :-)

    What did I get? A cheap Hauck/Kaiser Trialux lightmeter, the promise of some camera compatible gloves, a street photo book on Paris (Gautrand: Paris Mon Amour, Taschen).

    And I just ordered Les´ book as a gift to myself.
    Tschüss,

    I have the world's best girlfriend...

    A Logan 40" matt cutter, and an absolutely pristine Schneider SA 90mm f/8 that looks like it's never even been mounted on a camera. It looks like my Schneider/Linhof 90mm f6.8 will be going on the block soon. :-)

    My very own "Photo Geek" vest and Ansel Adams' "Examples - The Making of 40 Photographs" book. Cool!

    Aside from other books, one that stood out to me is Bernd and Hilla Becher's Basic Forms I had never heard of these photographers before, but their stuff is great. It's all industrial landscape photos, my personal favorite.

    so far I have received a nice book by Elliot Porter and Ellen Auerbach entitled "Mexican Churches". It is a nice color book as Elliot was a noted color photographer. Very through and nice printing from Hong Kong.

    Grant,

    a fella at de.rec.fotografie once called what the Bechers shoot "forensic photography". ;-)
    Tschüss,
