    a little story - Fell free to feel envy!!

    the story:
    two years ago, my girlfriend and I was at an island, doing a one-day fun'n games with a bunch of people from a professionel commercial photographer compagny..
    I had to try and make a photographic competition for aLL the members of the compagny.
    not easy, when some of them were secretarys and such - people that never took an image - blended with all the pros..

    so we did Pinhole camera. Stine was model - stood there all day, in the nude, beside the water-- and it wasn't too warm..

    I was promised a whole darkroom and lots and lots of quality paper for my work...

    time went on, and I didn't hear from the photographer...

    In the meantime I had a really great offer, and bought a Hasselblad system for the school.. really cheap. (1000$)

    Now - two years later, I got the darkroom. 4 (normal) enlargers and one Durst 138..
    and lots of paper...

    I had this idea, and asked my headmaster.. how about a schwitz? (spelling?)
    I havn't use for all those enlargers (I have two great ones)
    ok - he said.

    SO now I am the proud owner of the Hasselblad system....
    two cameras - 50-80-150-250mm lenses - 3 close-up lenses - extension rings - pol mag - 4 magazines - filters - wodden box and the hasselblad leather case.. (I might miss out some..)

    and without paying any money for it!


    SO now I only have one problem: I actually don't like Hasselblad... I'm a Rollei man....
    my girlfriend states that the hassy makes her sexy, so.......

    PS: the one camera is the ELX. with motor.. I can't figure it out.
    anyone here with a prospectus?

    You do indeed make me sick. Start using that camera or we'll have to send someone over there...

    You have my sympathies. I know just how you feel. A few months back, I traded a broken donkey cart full of rotten fruit and dried chicken bones for a nice, lightly used Hasselblad outfit with two hundred and fourty five rolls of fresh Tri-X. Now, my accountant says that the Hassy makes her sexy...What's a guy to do?

    Easy. Remove the label from the Hassy (or make a counterfit) and stick it on the Rollei when she is around. Then, sell the Hassy outfit and send me 10% for the bright idea.

    Three things needed to operate:

    1) Put all back in box, pack well.

    2) Put a label on it addressed to me.

    3) Ship it.


    No more dilemma's.

    Heck, if I had a Hassy and a girlfriend who it made sexy, I wouldn't be writing on here, I'd be having fun with one or the other, if not both...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    I want the broken donkey cart full of rotten fruit, that sounds way too random and cool!

    I'm a bit confused... Does a Hasselblad make a girlfriend sexy because she's using one, or because she's modelling (I presume nude) for it and it makes her feel like a supermodel?

    You know... the two put together would sure be nice...
