    I hike and photograph with two blond female Labrador Retrievers. At age 69 I carry my 7x17 gear in a baby jogger. Some times the girls working in a brace harness pull the jogger up hill. I wonder if they will pose for bondage in the harness. I’ll ask Frank Petronio for compositional suggestions.

    He said "beautiful" women... not "dogs"... not that any of the former type would be interested in handling my equipment these days.

    Perhaps I will build a focusing aid for SLRs working in IR spectrum out of an old night vision.

    Diffused light through the water that is slowly filling up the body and simultaneously provide a water pre-soak for processing. Of course, one might wish to avoid this method if you do not use the water pre-soak.

    No, he said "A nice blond girl that can carry my stuff and that I can use for model on location." These blond girls do carry my equipment and for a treat they would be happy to model on location.

    I think I would like a pinhole camera the size of a phone booth mounted on an all-terrain robot spider.

    A sub $1,000 dollar 24mm-300mm constant aperture F1.2, non-front element rotating, 67mm filter taking, 16 ounce lens (Nikon AF-D) that has no distortion at any focal length, and is just as sharp corner to corner at F1.2 as it is as F8. I would be willing to pay up to $1,500 and allow weight up to 24 ounces for a 40mm-200mm, F2 lens for my Bronica ETRS. Then I woke up next to Barbara Eden!

    Various stuff:
    A good and nice spaceship, reusable, that can bring me to the moon. I'd like to bring a 8x10 and take a earth rise (sunrise) and this one: http://www.kenrockwell.com/Images/nasa/apollo-11/as11-36-5355-950.jpg
    That's amazing. We're all there, all the history, mankind... In that sphere.
    For the flight: Rolleiflex 3.5E (less flare prone than 2.8); Linhof master technika; Hasselblad 503 for wides and teles. Kodachrome 64 [cry]; Fujichrome provia 100F and 400X. Ilford PanF and Kodak Tri-X.
    Ah, and a box full of digital cameras: EOS 5D II, D3X, Olympus EPN, Hasselblad H3D... Also, CD's/DVS's of photoshop CS4 and a laptop running it connected to a D3X. Batteries, and some cards.
    I will drop them before leaving the atmosphere, for watching how they become fireballs [evil laugh].

    I am 47 so gals like Barbara Eden and Dawn Wells hold a unique place in my adolescent heart!

    I would like an 8x10 Speed Graphic...or a rangefinder add on for the Toyo 8x10 field camera.

    I remember lusting after Barbara Eden when I was a young chap. Oh that rarely exposed belly button on that shapely tummy...

    I wish I had more money to afford the really cool stuff that's out there already! Some of it is so expensive it may as well be imaginary equipment :smile:
