May 21 2009

Made our annual pilgrimage to Walden today. Very beautiful. Today's theme : backlit leaves. They are so pretty and vividly verdant.







Ubiquitous cairn picture.

More flowers



Miscellaneous things:

Voigtlander is making a new folding medium format camera, the Bessa III. Expensive, but really cool. It shoots 6 by 6 or 6 by 7, which is also a nice touch.
linkage.
Of course it would probably make more sense to pick up an old Kodak folder or something used and cheap.

I hacked up a 120 spool to make a quick and dirty 35mm adapter. It's a bit silly to use 35mm in a medium format camera, but some people like the exposed sprocket holes. It does have some advantages, 35mm film is easier to get a hold of and offers some emulsions you cannot get in 120. Of course you would have to unload it in a changing bag since there is no way to rewind the film into the cassette. I'll try it out if I ever get stuff to develop film myself.

Egads!


I got a new little toy, a tiny Yashica 44. It's a TLR that takes 127 size film (which only one manufacturer makes now, so I need to stock up...) and it is so adorable. I will need to take a picture of it next to its big Yashica 124 sibling...
