The Long Way Home

This year I’m going back to film and what better way to start than with this lovely Valentine’s gift from Monster? I’ve wanted a focusing twin lens reflex camera for awhile now, but we haven’t had the extra cash (I could still kick myself for not grabbing the Mamiya for $70 at Pottery City). Now I can experiment with medium format to my heart’s content. The viewfinder has a magenta tinge around the edge of the glass, making it a bit difficult to focus on the subject. As with any less-than-perfect piece of equipment, you just learn to work with it. 

the latest addition to my growing camera family

HA! I always end up kicking myself for passing on things I know I should get. Good that you finally got one!

I think if I don’t know if something is a ‘good price’ at a flea market, I wait because I don’t want to pay too much. I’ve been trying to go in with an informed mind!

Thanks everyone!

I know, I love it too – I can’t wait to see what kinds of photos I get from this. First batch will be trial and error. I heart the magic of film!
