Classic Moto Guzzi Collection

Untitled by Vespamore !

A collection of shots taken late March 2012 - I was invited by classic Italian motorcycles publication, Benzina magazine www.teambenzina.co.uk to take some shots of this amazing private Guzzi collection.

The slightly patinated 1946 Dondolino with racing number was my personal fave. However the 1938 GTC Leggera, 1954 Falcone Sports with twin clocks & the other 1960 Falcone Sports with single clock were also very special...

All taken with my Olympus OM-2N & F/1.4 Zuiko lens, some shots taken on expired Fuji Tungsten slide film & cross processed. Other shots on Fuji Superia film 3200ASA. Full set of shots I took can be seen here

I love both of these shots by Scotsman Robbie McIntosh. Both are excellent examples of candid street photography which can be very difficult to pull off properly.

Glasgow is Robbie's hometown but his grandparents are Italian & he has recently moved to Italy for a temporary work assignment. You can view more of Robbie's evocative Italian photography on his Flickr photostream here

Thanks to Robbie for letting me blog these great shots. If anyone would like to use these shots or require prints please contact Robbie via his Flickr page for permission & details - thanks.

Rebuilding!

Lovely warm film shot by Enrico Ravanini, taken with his Pentax SLR camera, 50mm lens on Kodak 200ASA 35mm film.

I'm always pushing the virtues of 'old skool' film over digital, Enrico's shot is the perfect example of my philosophy; you just couldn't get such an atmospheric, tonally rich shot as this on digital, not without significantly 'photoshopping' it.

I may be in a shrinking minority with my continued pursuit of 'film goodness' but Enrico's shot gives me continued hope I'm right to ...

Some Paris in Thirds

I really like this triptych by Robert Croma more of London based Robert's work can be viewed on his website at www.robertcroma.com
