just wanted to share a strange story from my little life..
as some of you know, I have a weakness for the awesome GANDOLFI camera.
And I am blessed to have two of these cameras.
one 8x10 and onr full plate stereo (!!)
then I got this HUGE lens.. (another story...) and didn't quite know what camera to put it on..
talked to one of my students about, and mentioned that I had this 30x40cm camera standing in my hall way..
it was a nice camera, but with unknown maker (the name is hardly visible, as the holder for the front plate had been expanded so it covers the name..
my student was qurious and then persuaded me to take off the wodden list, so we could see ehat the name was on that camera..
and there it was: a 30x40cm GANDOLFI!!!!!
I FOUND a Gandolfi in my own house!!!
it was almost like discovering a Rembrandt painting under another layer of paint..
(not quite - but almost..)
how lucky can one get???
