(Note: On vacation for a few days, somewhere with no Internet :-). I have scheduled my posts in advance)
Out testing my Voigtlander Ultron 35mm/1.7 lens under the bridge in Taylor Creek Park.
I was out this past Sunday morning with my Mamiya RZ67 camera. It is large, fairly heavy and really needs to be mounted on a tripod. I have recently moved away from Large Format/4×5 (you can hear my reasons why on a recent episode of MPP) and am finding that shooting this camera on a tripod gave me everything I needed for that kind of experience, without the downsides.

Fujifim Neopan Acros film
We got home yesterday afternoon, so I have been able to start developing the backlog of film I have needing developing. One of the attractions we visited in St. Louis was the Scott Joplin Museum, a house where Joplin lived for a time around the turn of the 20th century. I liked the look and the light of this window in the kitchen.

I finally broke down and got a Hasselblad. Because I am on a self-imposed new gear diet for 2016, the only way to make this happen was to sell some gear. It was a difficult decision, but I think the Hassy and I will get along just fine 🙂

Acros 100 film developed in Rodinal
My first blog post with an image with the new (to me) Rolleiflex. This camera is a work of art! Part of the allure of film photography for me is using classic cameras like this; the experience of image creation is as important as the end result.
