Today I am posting a few pictures taken during Labor Day weekend in 
Rehoboth Beach (DE), using FP4 and Technical Pan:

I did not like any of my pictures of people, so this is a collection of 
sand, skies, birds, plants, a couple of windows and a fire hydrant. The 
camera was a double-stroke M3, the lenses the Tele-Elmar (most of 
them), the Elmarit-M 90mm (#5, #12 and #13) and the DR Summicron (#14 
and #15).

Most interesting for me was the use of Technical Pan. The comments on 
the list had intrigued me, as well as a recent article in Photo 
Techniques. It's impossible to notice at 72 dpi, but the amount of 
detail is really amazing (can you see the dolphins on #15?). And the 
dark skies without a filter are something else. It is  a shame Kodak is 
not making it any more.

Comments are welcome. Thanks for looking
