    I like the sound of using a slow film, although I have used Ilford delta asa 100 rated at 80asa with a pyro type dev, I have never used anything at asa25 or less. Efke 25 is pretty scarce here in the UK, Retrophotographic are out of stock, but I can get Maco 25. Anyone any experience with this film used with a staining dev or 2 bath dev to tame the highlights?

    I used to choose my film based on speed reqirements. Now speed is rarely the main consideration. I now size up the total contrast of what I am shooting and choose my film based on which one will do the best job with the tonal range I wish to capture. For ranges near 5 stops, l always use FP4 because of the way it expands the range easily to a density range of 1.2 to print on grade 2 paper. It also works well with staining development. For images with a great contrast range, I find TRI-X to be the most capable. I stick to these two for LF.

    My photos are always without all that distracting color ...

    I am going to try this efke25 film . I've been seeing all good things from it.

    But, I'd have to say that Tim Curry's best role is Pennywise the Clown. ooohhh very scary.....

    ... and there's always the option to shoot something with little or no chrome, like this rat trike. A 3.5 litre V8 rover engine bolted to a pick-up truck rear end with a bike front welded on.Shot yesterday while out for my daily cycle.

    Off topic, but I have to ask why not? I find that they aid creativity, and I was on the point of recommending them to all, but I shan’t now.

    Or like this one. The latest iteration of this classic ('46/'56/'66) chop was to install flat-black John Deer tractor mufflers.

    Sometimes, you run into situations where subdued chrome helps. This is my 1973 Moto Guzzi Eldorado about 3/4 of the way through a functional restoration. The front, engine crash bars were slightly oxidized, some of the chrome bracketry/trim showed pitting, etc. By flattening the overall contrast, it seemed to take attention away from these flaws and present the bike in a nicer way.

    mmmm, Moto Guzzi, a true classic, surely it deserves to be ridden on a photographic adventure and posed infront of some timeless architechture/landscape.

    You want classic bikes have a look at some of my father's collection. All bought for less than £100 each and restored in his shed.

    The Guzzi is a good buddy and even after owning modern and high tech alternatives, it is still my favorite. There's a certain rhythm to it that makes you take the long way home every time. Maybe I'm just getting older...? Here's a page that shows some of the bike activity when I'm not working in the dark: Bike Stuff

    Getting back slightly on topic....A Fuji folder has made many miles in those saddle bags.
