    On a whim decided to bust out my old friend and make a few condenser enlarger prints. It's been at least 15 years since I used this little guy. With a 50mm Nikkor lens I made a few prints with Ilford 8x10 Glossy RC (Dektol 1:3) (scanned for web Epson V-700). Border added in PS.
    Still works very well, did have a little bit of re-learning using filters having used a cold light enlarger for all these years.....LOL
    All comments welcome.

    The rotting shot up car is a great image. I like stuff like that.

    You have this under the name Vivitar, I used to have under the name Lucky. A very simple enlarger for home use.
    All the pictures from the same roll of film ?

    The push pins and the rotten car were shot in the 80's with a Pentax K1000 on Tri-x, the other 2 were from a trip to Florida in the late 90's and shot with a Canon A2E on Ilford Delta 400.

    Ha ! So really old stuff, it is nice, to have trip back in time. I expect, that you process the film yourself. ???

    Oh yeah, been developing my own BW since 1980. And if I remember right I bought this enlarger just after high-school in 1983. I'm thinking of doing more prints with this guy, it has brought back many fun memories of those first prints from 30 years ago.
