Fall can be beautiful in black

Took a walk with my X10 around in the garden. Had  a Rollei Retro 80s loaded in it .. No fill flash, minimal post processing in batch

X10 Fall

A walk around after sunset, reveals a fall in full bloom .. Shooting and thinking of Boston in fall.. Red-yellow .. a favorite color of cameras obsessed with low light and the death of things.


Cafe de Flore movie is still in my head, and is probably the raison d'etre for the images below .. It felt like shot with underexposed Kodak Portra VC and stitched together for 24 fps. Its cinematography is up there with the very best i've seen, and the light, oh the light .. As in the last image here ..









Finally, most - if not all of the images above are iso3200, not denoised in any way, shot handheld, in auto aperture mode - which came naturally in the f2.0 - 2.8 range .. 


It's like what more do you need from a camera ..

How close or how far - you be the judge. I like the results .. And that is how my fav film collection welcomed a new member - the Kodak Portra 160VC :


Now three is a party, which i like way too much :


Kodachrome 64
Rollei Retro 80s

Liang Yue, Several Dusks

" 'Several Dusks' is the title for a series of photographs i am planing to realize over time. An 'Afternoon of Lili' is one part of this series. The story of Lili might continue, beyond this fixed frame. Yet we maybe wont find Lili in the future, Lili may be also only a made-up feature, or Lili may be just among the people on the picture. I don¡¯t know who Lili is, but I wanted to catch her smell, which existed in this fading afternoon... Thus I took this break of time, like a wound, quietly healed in slight pain. Do not try to focus on color and composition, or find out where the image is taken. It is only a dusk, some people, pale, passing by. Some Dusk, extending to depth...."
