    We went for a dog walk on the St. Norbert's campus today. I popped into a chapel for a quick phone photo:

    Re: Sinar Norma 8x10 Telephoto Field 1

    Yeah, I've done a bit of that, but it was so unwieldy that I didn't do it very often. I used Sinar P/P2 parts, which would be heavier. The Norma system would be better.

    Thanks, Guys. I had just finished my class work for the week, when I saw the tulips were blooming. It was fun to spend a few minutes photographing them, which is a rare luxury at the moment.
