    Sometimes you just HAVE to...

    It's just after 2pm here at work. Friday afternoon. Threw the 2.8E2 Planar Rolleiflex into the trunk just before my commute. It's loaded with some APX100. I am just ITCHING to get out and shoot it. Something. Anything. I want to be looking down into that square viewfinder, I want to feel that shutter button on my finger. See the shadows, the light, the forms, do my composition, measure my light, decide my speed an d aperture. Trees, a bridge, the ocean (I'm lucky and work about 5 minutes from the Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge). CLICK! Wind to next frame....Too much to do here at work right now though. Argh!

    You know that grinding in the back of your mind where you simply MUST get out and shoot? I have it bad right now.

    Ok, work harder, so I can leave earlier....

    The only way this thread belongs in the hallowed grounds of the soapbox is if you'd gone out shooting with a gun instead of a camera.

    These kind of good natured posts have no place here.

    C'mon grow a set.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.
