Photo Exhibit - Spring

Photographer Image Title, Comments and Photo Data
Brent Arrison Spring Planting (122KB)
Taken with 300mm on my Kiev 88CM
Paolo Cavazza Crushed by the Book Fair (81KB)
Spring is the season of the Turin International Book Fair, a big event housed in the restored historical Fiat Lingotto factory. There are too many things to see: not only books, but also special guests, lectures, concerts, etc. and sometimes the "I want to see everything" syndrome takes its toll from visitors.
Pentax MX with Variozenitar 25-45mm, Kodak T-Max P3200 developed in D-76.
Stand Ladies (89KB)
I was intrigued by the silhouette of this young lady, slightly altered by the curved plexiglass panels, and by the light effects. I wish I had my Kiev 88 and a tripod!
Pentax MX with Arsat 80mm and K88-M42-PK adapters, probably 1/125s at f/5.6.
Hans Hockx Shadows in Amsterdam (109KB)
Hmmm... spring *is* a difficult theme for a B&W worker. But this time of year gives us lots of low sunlight and large shadows that are fun for a photographer ;-)
Kiev 60 with Arsat Vega 120mm.BR>
Kevin Ing Gomi No Hana #19 (95KB)
'Gomi No Hana' means 'garbage flowers' in Japanese. Back in 2000, I took a picture of some flowers growing next to my apartment complex's garbage area. The next day the flowers were gone because someone had taken a 'weed-whacker' to the whole area. After that I started taking pictures of little flowers and plants growing where people don't want them. This is number 19 in the series.
Kiev 88CM, 30mm Arsat. 1/30 at F11 on Fuji 400 color negative film.

'Tourou' are the Japanese stone lanterns you can find in gardens across the country. This one is at Zenkouji (temple) in Nagano prefecture. It is surrounded by cherry blossoms which symbolize spring in Japan.

Dorothee Rapp Fruehling (89KB)
It's always so beautiful when finally everything turns green after the long time of bare trees and earth during the winter. There are some lovely small flowers in my front garden which usually don't last long. I took the picture in late afternoon, had my ARAX only a couple of days and this is a frame from my first CN film with it.
