    Congrats, Jim, beautiful piece of work!

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    All right Walter! I guess I could be convinced to build another one! The first one is always more valuable isn't it? So I have to have a year and a good million and we're good to go! Fat chance! In my excitement to show her off I forgot to put a lens on. I took a couple of shots with my Voigtlander Euroscop 16" Hybrid lens. This lens covers at infinity wide open! Should make a decent portrait lens. 36" of bellows may just work. I'm going to eventually have a brass plate made for the front of the camera that will have it's name and completion date. Need to do the same for the 8x20.

    Eric, the 8x20 is "The Beast I" and this one is "The Beast II". I will eventually get one of those baby joggers to carry both of them in. That should be something to see. The cameras are almost bigger than I am!

    Congrats Jim,

    With all those offers I have one bit of advice. Only accept silver certificates (does anyone remember those?)

    Lovely work.

    Cheers,
    Clarence
