Ülmercott vs Kanon Mörk

This is the final test of the very rare Ülmercott Dr.t2 lens. You see the stairs leading down and a shady part of the wall in this picture taken with the good old ülmer. If I blow up the picture there will be some street art visible.

Ülmercott Dr.T2

Kanon 1Dr Mörk IV

These pictures show the difference between the ülmercott and the kanon mörk ( I shot excactly the same motif using Kanon 1Dr Mörk IV and zoomed the shady part of the wall). Interesting, isn't it?

Time for a new mini project? Yees! This is a hairy one. We want pictures related to "hair";
long hair, pink hair, barber shop interiors, signs, hair brushes, hair styles, beards, hairy legs, people with no hair...well you name it. As always we rely on your imagination, dear reader of the F Blog.

Please send your contributions to the gruppo F inbox address or to any of the editors (Marcin, Ulf).

Just a reminder: the featured mini projects "Music" and "Kitchen" are still on. Don´t hesitate to send a picture on these subjects. The former mini projects "Street corners", "Café" and "Kiosks" are displayed as labels, and of course you are welcome to contribute with pictures on these subjects as well.

Three projects will be featured all of 2008: Face to face, Trees and DOCU-08. We hope to be able to make an online exhibition (or even a real life exhibition) with photos from these projects in the beginning of 2009.

So, stay tuned to F - the Hairy channel./ulf

Docu 08 - Independence in Kosova

Photographer: Łukasz Kuś

Place: Kosova
Time: 16 - 17 of February 2008

Pictures were taken during few days before and just after declaration of the independence of Kosovo by Łukasz Kus - polish documentary photographer. Until now the world is divided into recognition and protest. As in every conflict after inventing photography, pictures can show the real life. Only if they are shown to the people... /joanna/
