    Re: Vintage Glass Plate Negatives

    My father carried a couple of cameras around Europe when he was in WWII. One was a 6x9 glass plate camera. It seems like he said it was an Agfa but I wouldn't swear to it.

    These were shot between...

    Re: Show Me Your Night Shots!

    This isn't what it appears to be, it's the China pavilion at the 1982 Worlds Fair in Knoxville TN near where I live. I originally shot it on 5x7 Ektachrome but decided to make a B&W out of it.
