Для чего делались все эти дредноуты? Если так трудно хоть что-нибудь женщине объяснить и найти нужные слова… Куда легче построить прекрасный дредноут, выйти в на нем в море, и там погибнуть в бою с таким же… дредноутом.

I gave the mamiya to a girl for a test drive,I doubt she's serious enough,a classic example of modern photography student(knows little,total reliance on instructor)/ I got three calls about it since.

Panda Labs are God.
I checked test prints for a color 6X4.5 neg(to 45X60cm) enlargement(optical).It looks fantastic!

I checked a 30x40 cm print they made for me(was drying at the moment)from 35mm trix 400@1600(nikkor 50/1.4 wide open).Wow.

Long squares in the church of the Holy Sepulchre

"Just inside the entrance is The Stone of Anointing, believed to be the spot where Jesus' body was prepared for burial by Joseph of Arimathea. It is the 13th Station of the Cross. The lamps that hang over the stone are contributed by Armenians, Copts, Greeks and Latins."Wikipedia.

This ia a 5-10 second exposure.

A policeman and a civilian were discusing something in humorous tones sitting inside the entry gate of the church in Arabic.

The man was playing with his Masbaha.As you can see from it's movement the exposure was also a couple of seconds.

I got a nikon AIS 35/2.8 on a permanent loan.

grain extravaganza

One of films I botched with my first try to use HC-110(dillution H).

I developed in a stainless steel tank for the first time.I managed to bend the film a bit but overall I see how loading 120 film into a SS reel is easier then (old)plastic.The fact the one I have takes a while to fill I think I will use diafine with it(since trix@1600 and neopan across@200 look wonderfull in it in med format anyway).

I need to retake the microeconomics test.
I got a new(2008 pressing) Jeff Buckley grace vynil,and old Yehuda Poliker and Smiths(the Queen is dead).
