    ...at the National Auto Museum in Reno. Plasticca!

    3 pages of photos with the Plasticca side by side with a Gundlach Series B Petzval and a Bausch & Lomb Projection Petzval.

    I posted this over at LFForum earlier this week but I cannot access APUG at work so I wanted to post here as well for my friends that don't cross over much. As always let me know your thoughts.

    Caution: If you do not like soft focus, or old automobiles, <blink>bad page, bad page</blink> :tongue:

    Very nice photos indeed Jim.

    So far I have been able to resist the lure of this kind of lenses, but you are wearing down my defences…

    Another great series, Jim. The joy of having all those great subjects and a welcoming staff must make for a nice day, even when you don't have a new grandchild to visit!

    Jim, you've done it again. I really like the work you do with these old cars and unusual lenses. My large format gear is all 4x5, and looking at your stuff makes me want to drag it out more often.

    Beautiful photos Jim! I haven't been to that museum since Harrah's gave it up---but it will definately be on my to-do list next time I'm in Weeno :D

    Congratulations on the new grandchild---I'll have a cigar to celebrate!
