    Thanx Jim! Nope not mine, so i didnt want to try and close it so i just shot it as i found it. I may go back with other lenses and try different angles, but its pretty cramped and not much light coming in to work with.

    Even though it is not (gasp!!!) large format, I purchased last week a TLR from the fifties just because all it had was a meniscus lens. I have film in it right now and plan on taking it on my afternoon walk tomorrow. Today we had torrential rain and lighting, so it was more of a 35mm day.
