Coronado Beach


I miss my Rolleiflex.  Just over a month ago, I drove it up to Manhattan Beach for a CLA by Harry Fleenor.  I'm really looking forward to getting it back.

Just before I took it up to Harry, I walked it on Coronado Beach and over to the Hotel Del Coronado with a few rolls of Portra 160. There are a few images that have some sun flare, I think I forgot to put the lens hood on and they were taken towards the later part of the afternoon.  

It'll be interesting to see if there's any improvement in the resolution or quality of images after the CLA.  During the initial inspection by Harry, he noticed that the taking lens was moving around a bit.  I'm sure that's not good for resolution or focus.  But these don't show any affect that I can see.  Having said that, I can't wait to get the Rollei back and see if anything changes.

I love medium format.

As always, thanks for reading!
