Subject: [Leica] Images made with archaic equipment no longer used professionally

Since there has been much ado about not seeing the equipment in use, I
thought I'd throw out this little bit.
Brown dirt  cowboys was done with the R8, 50mm 'Lux wide open, and the
Rollei 6003, with 80mm, and 60mm, also mostly wide open.
The shots of Esteban in the paper itself, also include a  nearly full page,
11x14 tabloid, close-up portrait of him with the 'Lux wide open. It looks
great, with bokeh flying off like quark particles.
All on Agfa Ultra 100.
The cover was the 80mm, at either f2.8 of f4.
You have to scroll far down the article for the other shots.
Was done with the Super SpeedGraphic, with a late 180mm, closed down one
stop at f8.
I guess there's still life in this old gear after all.
