Re: Test Of Time

Can digital do that? Probably with PhotoShop, but I see some efforts with PS and they're best described as Trigger's Broom.

Re: Test Of Time

Wow Roger, two great finds there - better than gold! It's lucky that Ray's slides have fallen into the hands of someone who appreciates them. That shot of the tree has a cross processed look about it, I'd love to see more of his work if you have the inclination to scan it, also those of your wife's uncle.

Here's another by Ray Bell of Clifon Suspension Bridge.

I had both!

The Exacta was a Varex 1000, with lots of accessories. It was OK, but not very well made.

The Zenit was an early one, before they put a '3M' on it.I think I bought it in 1966. It was basic, but solidly made (it didn't have an instant return mirror). The lens was the 52mm Helios and a great performer - far better than the Tessar on the Exacta. The ruggedness of the Zenit was legendary, with users reporting them being dropped down a mountain and surviving. I wish I still had it!

Thanks, I think it is great that his work is suddenly getting an unexpected audience!
