FYI... "Staircase Falls" is now called " E-Send Falls " and is activated by your Cell Phone sending your
Access Fee to your Credit Card e-account. Activation begins when your request is OK'd by The Cell-Cloud-Master Guy, who beams you to " The-Other- Place " ( either "Top" or "Bottom" of the e-Falls, whichever is relevant.) Your " ex-place in line" is then e-automatically populated by the " next e-guy ( or gal )in line
who is possesed of a valid " E-Falls Get It Account ".
Base-Rate is determined by flexible e-Rules which vary based on several thangs which will be listed on your next Credit Card stuff.
I took a phone shot of this place, but my computer ate it...I guess...either that or I didn't take no shot of that place...bye!

Where are you really from? I don't know any real Texans that spew out the stuff you do.

Staircase Falls in Yosemite N.P. Copy of 35mm slide from 1964. I wonder if this still occurs 55 years later.

Just as I hit the shutter release, this guy arrived. Actually, I'm happy to see it back out of hibernation.

Nice photo, Streets! And knowing that old tree isn't there anymore, makes your photo even more special.
I love to see other people's great photos. Thanks for starting this thread. Very impressive shots from people here on UHH!

This picture of my grandmother may not be the most technically correct or best processed, but it's one I get the most comments on. This was taken when she was 102 and she passed away about 6 months later. (download is better, as usual).

I really like this! It appears to me that it was not posed but shot to save a moment. That is what makes it very special.

Thanks for sharing. It is an amazing capture. Ansel Adams would be proud of this B&W image.

Ansel Adams photographed the tree 24 years before I did, but from a different angle that did not have Half Dome in the background. I have another shot that is a fairly close match to the one he took. At the time of these shots I was unaware of Ansel's work.

Hi Streets
Was the spotmatic used very much? Sounds like it had low usage. Is the body black in color or silver/black?

It looks to be excellent and it is the silver/black version.

I have one photo that I never tire of looking at. It was taken in 1964 on Sentinel Dome in Yosemite N.P. I did spend a few minutes looking for the best framing but it was still a snapshot. I was using an Alpa 6b slr at the time. The original 35mm Kodachrome slide was desaturated in post processing it hangs as a 16x10. Of the thousands of photos I have taken this is THE ONE. How about letting us see your #1

All of the items are in excellent to mint condition. Lenses come with original hard leather cases, both caps, and sun shades. The spotmatic camera is excellent with nice leather case. I will not sell any item separately. I am selling the collection for a friend whose husband recently passed away.

50mm f1.4 Super Takumar--$100.00
50mm f1.4 SMC Takumar---$78.00
28mm f3.5 Super Takumar-$60.00
135mm f3.5 Super Takumar-$44.00
85-210mm f4-f5.6 Super Takumar--$78.00
Auto Bellows/Slide copier with all accessories and instruction manual in original box-$115.00
Kenko 2x teleconverter in leather case with both caps-$20.00
Pentax Spotmatic 1 with case and original box-$100.00

These prices seem to be fair based on my research. I will be open to offers on entire package. Buyer will pay for actual cost of shipping. Domestic buyers ONLY, please.

My profit on this sale will be $000.00

This little guy flew into our window and ended up on the ground in a groggy state. I set him on top of our gas grill so he could recover safely. After 15 minutes or so he flew off, but not before I was able to get a close, close-up of him.

The body is smaller and weighs less. Because of physics, the lenses are bigger and weigh more. I am not sold yet. If someone can show me how the entire package of body and lens is smaller and lighter I'd like to see it.

Lenses are NOT bigger by necessity. I use the same lenses on my a65 as I did on my a200 mirror SLR. Of coarse, Sony was first in developing the translucent mirror system which kept the relationship of the distance between the lens mount to focal plane the same as it was going all the way back to the Minolta AF cameras. This was the best example of manufacture to user consideration that ever happened. 50 year old Pentax m42 Takumars adapt to these Sonys easily with $3.00, non optical adapters, and extends to all M42 35mm format lenses from many other producers. It was disappointing to find that Sony deviated from course when It decided to come out with the E series cameras.

Looks pretty good to me, if somewhat soft around the edges.

I enjoy trying out older equipment too, just to see.

The first shot was an oblique. This shot was taken with a flat subject parallel to the focal plane. The edge softness will be better to assess with this alignment. I would not avoid using this setup for any setting where a 100 mm prime is called for.

you couple a 1970's 50mm f1.4 Super Takumar lens with a 1970's Kenko 2X Teleconverter? This shot was taken at f8, ISO 100 and at a distance of 24 inches. Not much difference from today's best optics.

Bucket from Dollar Store: $1.00. No Squirrel has ever defeated this trick.

A $3.00 cedar board and some left over Kydex. Sturdy, Rainproof and draws many birds.

Thanks for the info. The bellows set could be adapted to a lot of a different brands with their lenses. The one The lady has looks new and has all the goodies included the instruction manual. I'm not sure that that it was ever used. Do you have any idea of what it originally sold for? Thank again, Streets.
