    My neighbors mother...
    My first day going back home with my Tachihara.
    "Is that a Hasselblad?"
    Even after she's seen my Bronica SQ-Ai on many repeated occasions...
    You'd think if she were to think one of those was a 'blad it'd atleast be the 6x6...
    I guess the Tachi is a hell of a lot more beautiful than the Broni though.

    One time walking around in the city with a Hasselblad I overheard someone nearby say to his friend: "That's the Mamiya I want to get!"

    I've officially been asked if my Speed Graphic was a Hasselblad! I'm quite proud of myself, even if they did correct themselves before I could...
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Melbourne Airport ... carrying around a somewhat heavy 16mm Bolex (which has Hasselblad-esque styling) I was asked "does it actually work????" ...

    I am seriously considering not getting a carnet for it next time I travel with it for work.
    Cleared the bowel problem, working on the consonants...

    Sorry I arrived late to this thread.

    About the comment above, about a hundred years ago, a Spanish writter, Miguel de Unamuno said this:

    When you first time meet a person, don't ask him where he is from. If he is from Bilbao, he will tell you. If not, don't embarras him.

    By the way, Miguel de Unamuno was born in Bilbao.

    Cheers from Bilbao
