Bessa R2

Got a new rangefinder a few weeks ago, bessa r2 with a russian jupiter 8 50mm f/2.0 lens. I really like it, it's compact, quite simple to use and to my surprise the russian lens is amazing. I took the camera with me to Sweden the next day I got it to shoot a test roll of b&w film just to see how it works. I've wanted to get one for ages and now that I got one, I have to say it was worth the wait. Self developed in Rodinal 1+50 dillution for 15 minutes. Used plain water as a stop bath, but it seems to work just fine. Loving the rodinal grain again.

Yeah, I know. I just had to do this.

go skateboarding day

Oh yeah, monday 21st was the annual go skateboarding day and we went skating with the guys. well, they were skating and I took some photos. got a few good b&w photos, but haven't processed them yet. maybe I'll do it next week if I'm not working the whole freaking week again.


let's have dinner. I'm buying, yeah?!?Fancy a burger, maybe a kebab?

mid summer randomness

jim croce

I've had this song playing my head for the last 4 days now.

I thought I'd post some more photos from last weeks trip to Sweden whilst I'm trying to find a place to process twenty rolls of medium format b&w film in Helsinki.
If you happen to know where I could get everything processed in Finland, let me know.

Also this dude was filming a documentary and I took his portrait around 3am inside a massive tent. Some said he was Aleksi Mäkelä, but don't know man, could be...

back home

Went to Norrtälje, Sweden to a custom bike show last week with Home Grown Choppers from Helsinki, Finland. It was an amazing trip, the weather was great and managed to burn my hands, nose and forehead in the sun. Here's a few photos from the trip, I'll try to post some more in a few days.
