Very nice shot! Some of the best photos are taken during the magic hour... What equipment did you use?

I shoot mostly digital anymore, due to costs and dark room access problems.
Last night, however, I had the opportunity to use a friend's facilities and clicked this one off as the last one on the roll.
It was taken with a Praktica IV F; an East German camera made in 1965 in Dresden. Very similar to some old Contax models. It uses the M42 mount, so I have been able to use a couple nice lenses with Zeiss glass; makes all the difference. A good scanner helps as well.
Thanks for the comments,

Very nice. would you sell a print?
Very nice shot... makes me want to bust out the ol' Retina II and take a few myself.

Its really hard for me to find time anymore to get to the darkroom, thus getting a quality print to you would be a real pain. They take a good amount of time to make, I use fiber paper so it takes a long time to wash, lots of the dodge and burn because my photography is nowhere near perfect, etc.
I could email a large resolution scan of the negative (corrected) to you if you want. Pm me.

That bike looks familiar. Hmmm, do you go to PSU? Or do you park it in front of Fourth Ave Building sometimes?

I don't know if you've heard, but one can open those U-Locks with a Bic pen. Check this tread out (http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=67493)

Yeah, that was me who put up the first video (with help of course). This is the girlfriend's lock which has an Ace-II key. I couldn't get it open, so it will have to do until Kryto sorts out this mess.
And nope, I don't go to PSU. Finished that "college" stuff a while ago, but I am known to be seen all over the city.
