    You have a Gandolfi, but is it big enough? You definitely need a bigger one, however big your current one is. You can't just work in that small format forever, whatever it may be.

    85mm f/1.4 Minolta for portraits and the 200mm f/2.8 for some sports and short wildlife. The rest I would have to save for film and travel. New Mexico has been calling me...so has Iceland.

    Something nice for the girl friend is also a good suggestion of course - the only problem would be figuring out exactly what kind of LF camera she'd like .

    no no - that's the easy part. She definately would want a GANDOLFI...

    a bigger GANDOLFI? hmm - nice...

    studio stand: have one.

    here is my "problem": I seem to have almost all I need.Photographywise.

    so maybe I'll but one of those REALLY expensive Danish lamps! a big ol' PH lamp.

    If you don't know what that is.....check this out:

    that would go nicely with my GANDOLFI...
    but I fear it is too expensive (estimated value is 8000$ !)

    Forget that understated Danish elegance. Go for something a bitwild. You could always use it as a prop.

    Buy a really nice watch, the one thing you always have on you. Have it engraved. Or take the one print you know your parents loved (I hope that is a possibility) and print it as well as you can, buy the most wonderfull frame etc (have it made) and install it with perfect lighting. That would help you get rid of a good share. Save the rest and buy/do something when you need something...

    Kind regards,

    Onno

    I'm a birchwood and white walls man myself, but Rooth's glass is just so completely over the top it appeals. It's more transparant and less plastic in real life than it looks in the photos. The fiskvägg is fantastic.

    Not in a house with three small children though.

    I'll add my voice to the others and use the money to buy time or travel. A definite project, but not gear. I have a hankering to travel the E6 from Nordkapp to Sicily, taking trannies along the way. Your windfall would pay for the petrol as far as, perhaps, Bødø :-)
