    Howdy from Delaware

    Hi all. My name is Chris. I have been a film photographer for about twenty years. 35mm mostly, medium format for the last five years. Black and white only for the last two. Processing my own B&W since February. Have owned someone else's Aletta 4x5, a Polaroid 545 holder, a box of P/N for about a month and my first lens, a 140mm Ernemann f/8 showed up today. I am definitely going to commit to big in the future but this is just a very BASIC start. But today I sat outside and looked through the viewfinder at the scene before me, watching the trees wave in the wind and the vibrant colors on the ground glass. Same thing I thought about processing when I finally did it.

    "What was I waiting for?"

    Howdy.
    Thanks.

    Do they actually say "Howdy" in Delaware?
    Howdy, Chris!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    35mm is good for landscapes and townscapes. I swap lenses a lot like it's a big 35mm, but with 3 or 4 lenses it's a ton. Good that the focus and aperture rings turn the same way as my Pentax 35mm kit. Good too that laymen or officials tend to mistake it for an "ordinary" (35mm SLR) camera, not a "professional" Hassel or Bronica with possible problems.
    Pity the back is not interchangeable, hence no digital option. Can be fiddly to load, especially to get the new full reel engaged in its spigots. It is a bit too electronic - needs the battery. But I am comparing it here with my LX - with which SLRs reached perfection!

    Chris,
    Nice work on your website!
    Cool images everyone---take a gander!
    (do people in California actually say gander? I do! )
