Samurai - The pics are good showing several layers of nature.

But your choice of location (your house) is even better!

Thanks TG and Deep for the compliment.

BTW, I am surprised nobody commented on the Agfa Click-3 camera image I posted, isn't that a strange camera? I hadn't thought about it until I saw it last week.

It's still there Sharath. 120 films are available in the market. I think AGFA had introduced a model after this too.

And who will develop such a film? I was shocked to find out that this format was introduced in 1901.

120 film - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Samurai,
Strange for you folks may be, but I had used it extensively. The film comes wrapped in paper on the outside.!
I had exactly the same camera Click-III, and used it during my All-India Tour during 1982. (waaaay long ago..) It comes with a real Solid leather cover too.
And some of the results with 120 films were amazing. (Of course, Black and white).
Now that you've reminded me, I must plan a trip to my native place (some 600 kms away from Chennai and dig out all those lofts to catch that antique and the snaps I took with it.
You kindled my nostalgia too.

Yes, I remember the leather cover. I think it is heavier than the camera itself.

Anybody who's still processing (C41) colour negative film and (E6/Tetanol etc) colour transparency film or (D76/ID11/D25 etc) black and white negative films.

There was one more roll film size known as 127 (Introduced by Kodak in 1912). I did use that extensively. My father gave me a TLR Ricoh camera. Find more here.

Thanks a lot Rudra Sir and SJ_Koova.
I actually waited till the bus came, but that shot didn't come out well as I went bit too close by that time and the bus kind of covered a large area of the frame :-(. This was taken near Sagar, I just love that place.

@kaushik
Well done. Awesome light in your shots there.

This was shot in really bad light, since i spotted the otter on the other side of a rock crevice so the animal was completely in its shade,with me almost in the water.. chest deep with the 70-200, there was a lot of water spraying off the rocks due to the waves, so my lens got a thin layer of tiny water droplets, which sort of resulted in a slight diffusing of light, which in the end i kinda liked. One of those shots which make me smile when I think of the story behind it.

Also, there will not be any posts of new pictures from me for about a month from now. Today I sold my beloved d700. An upgrade is in the pipeline
Regards,
TG.
