Well, it's been ages since I've posted here, mostly because I've moved over to Facebook (dragged kicking and screaming, but now I like it alot). I went in my local camera store and picked up a deal on a Mamiya RB67 Pro-S with a back and a 180 lens. My intent was just to shoot portraits, but I took it out for a spin at doing some night shots last night. It will at least let me do color photography economically. I'm still getting used to the beast, and I know on several occasions either I forgot to remove the darkslide or conversely forgot to advance the film (it's an RB 67 back, not a Pro-S or Pro-SD back so it doesn't have any multiple exposure prevention). I'm going to drop off the film over the weekend and hopefully have some great shots of sunset at the Tidal Basin (Jefferson Memorial reflected in the water) and the high-rises in Rosslyn reflected in the Potomac river as seen from Georgetown.
