    The Adventure Begins

    I got my Intrepid 4x5 in the post today. I have yet to shoot it, but that is on tap for tomorrow.

    Make a written check list to follow for your first few shoots. It will make your life easier.

    It was a dreary day today with a solid, flat overcast and off & on drizzle - but I wanted to put at least a few shots through the Intrepid. The lighting was blah, so I went to the local graveyard and shot an interesting marker. I know nothing of the guy beneath, but his marker was unusual, hence interesting.

    Well done!
    What's next?
    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.

    Ok, so his next of kin had a macabre sense of humor. I was envisioning a ships captain or a sailor that went down to the sea, hence the anchor. I was not thinking of a guy that may have tied himself to the anchor and jumped. How did you find that?
