Fire at Will

Fire at Will
Film cameras and old cannons have a lot in common. Great care was/is needed to aim and focus/calculate range before firing. Nowadays, anyone can simple press a button and the result is automatic . . .
By the way, if any viewers are named, Will, I was not aiming at you . . .

This improvised tripod assisted photo was taken by a Kowa/SIX medium format film camera with a KOWA 1:3.5/55 lens using Kodak T-MAX 400 film, the negative scanned by an Epson Perfection V600 and digitally rendered with Photoshop.

Nice work Scott.

A sad reminder of the passing of Gene Wilder, "but I shoot with this hand".

One of the true greats...

My favorite Gene Wilder/Mel Brooks film - Blazing Saddles.
I first saw this movie in Salisbury, Rhodesia. I was asked by the white Rhodesian staff of the hotel that I worked at how they could begin to approach the black staff with greater camaraderie (They had noticed that I, as an American, had a different type of relationship with the black staff). I suggested that we all go to a movie together and maybe have a few drinks afterwards (unheard of in this country).
I glanced at both groups out of the corner of my eye when Gene Wilders' character, The Waco Kid, said to the black new sheriff of Rockridge, "What's a dazzling urbanite like you doing in a rustic setting like this?" A classic memory of a great actor . . .
