Hyde Park & Speakers' Corner, London, Fall 2002:  These pictures were taken during some spare time while in London on a business trip.  For some reason I didn't pay much attention to the pictures for over two years.  All were shot with Voigtlander Bessa R2 bodies and a variety of Voigtlander lenses.

London, November 2001 (Color):  As stated below, the challenge was: "Real photographers shoot their vacations in black & white."  However, if you were in London on 26 November, you would have been greeted by a mild, clear, sunny morning. So when I dropped the black & white film off at Snappy Snaps, I picked up a roll of color film. All these photos were shot with the Voigtlander 15mm or 21mm lenses on the Voigtlander Bessa-L.

London, November 2001:  The challenge was: "Real photographers shoot their vacations in black & white."   The black & white film was Ilford XP2 Super (ISO 400) -- film which can be processed on your local 1-hour photo shop's C-41 color machinery. I had most of the film processed in London at a nearby Snappy Snaps store...They actually have the proper B&W paper for chromogenic films in glossy and matte. Most U.S. stores don't even know what you are talking about when you ask for B&W paper.
