The Bike on Valencia

I mentioned this bike in a previous post – I stumbled upon it at the top of the hill on 21st and Valencia during our last day in SF. Normally I don’t mix film and digital in posts, but I fired off rounds with all three cameras and thought it would be fun to show the results side-by-side. I’ve always enjoyed when Alice does this in her film vs. digital posts, so here’s my take:

On the D700

On the Rolleiflex

On the Diana+

Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikkor 85mm f/1.8

Camera: Rolleiflex 2.8C
Film: Fuji Reala 100 (thanks Diyosa!)

Camera: Diana+
Lens: Diana+ 75mm
Film: Rollei Retro 100
Scanned from a negative developed by Blue Moon Camera & Machine

      I know. I wanted to steal it and smuggle it aboard the plane, haha. I was shocked to see a U-lock attached to the frame - I thought for sure this bike had sat in this same spot for ages, but I guess someone actually rides it. Cute.

    Nice! It's fun to see the mood shift with all the different cameras/films.

    Seriously. I want to put a basket on this bike and put my camera and freshly picked flowers in it asap.

    I thought a pale yellow Schwinn would be the dream bike, but oh, oh no. This one takes the cake.

    ah, cool! i think in the film shots, the highlights are more subdued. man, amazing colors all around though.

    i would love to bike but would probably get killed in this city within a minute of owning a bike. x_x

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/simplystardust] It has a basket, albeit, a metal one. When I think of roses and bikes and rusty iron gates I definitely think wicker basket. Regarding colorful bikes, though... Let me just say, I have a red bike and a blue helmet. Yeah, didn't really think that one out, always feelin' like a goober when I go out on my bike. Hah. :)
