Glad that you are allowing that marvelous camera the ability to see the light of day. The visual experience of seeing an 11x14 ground glass is a special event that is highly addictive and facilitates the efforts of getting said beast to location. I am guilty as charged for the identical set of operating conditions.
I had a pic of myself with my 4x5 taken in studio and i used it as an avatar for my facebook main pic, but i will post here one day when i will have larger format, 5x7 or 8x10 or larger, i WISH.
That's great, Frank. It's a photo that you will treasure!
