Tri-X, Rodinal 1+50, Leica III, Elmar (collapsible)

Just a quick post featuring that “Leica glow.” I took this in late December light with a 1934 Leica III and 1936 Elmar, on Tri-X that I pushed to 1600 and developed in Rodinal. Definitely the age and condition of the lens, which to my knowledge has never been serviced, played a role in this look. I will get it cleaned up at some point; old lenses have their own fingerprint, and when they’ve been cleaned, lubed, and otherwise serviced, they’re usually a lot easier to use.


My very beautiful and beloved Leica III with collapsible Elmar.
