Funny you should say this. If you look at the fashion pictures, beginning with the square image of the woman sitting in front of a brick wall, they were shot with a Rolleiflex purchased on the street for $150; no makeup, no stylist -- we used the clothes the model was wearing when I met her -- and it was all processed three blocks away. I did, however, use expensive transparency film... Many of the street photos were developed at the local one-hour place, and scanned from those prints! So maybe I should have incorporated some of this into the list. Except that I'm in love with my expensive Leica gear. I'll have a look at your images.
