Till Next Time
From Andi’s going away brunch this afternoon at Dos Segundos. Jake came along (while Sue was home decorating cupcakes for a birthday party next week), and declared that “andipantz” was a really awesome name. Yup.
Two other pieces of photographic news:
- I bought a cheap +10 77mm diopter and rebuilt the box camera. First results: not stellar; I botched the focus. I’m going to have to come up with a better focusing mechanism now that the optics have surpassed the rest of the tech. May fall back to some combination of the +4, +2 and +1 that came with this $13 el-cheapo set. So my cyanotype work hasn’t stopped, and I might be posting something new in a few weeks. And while you’re waiting, every box in my house appears to be gaining an extra 77mm hole in one side. 🙂
- As of last Friday, I’m the proud new owner of a Bessa 66. She’s older than the one pictured on camerapedia; their photo is of the third version (which has a rangefinder, where my 1938-1941 first generation does not). Baby Bessa’s been out for a few test rolls. The first is due back from the lab tomorrow. Can’t wait to see what Bessa can do…
