    wow

    This week I purchased a pre-owned Hasselblad 503cx outfit. Why did I wait so long... It's beautiful.
    I'm afraid my wife will see me cuddling with it, so i hid all the sledgehammers...

    Offer to let your wife cuddle it too

    Back in July I bought a vintage 1942 Leica IIIc, with 5cm Elmar. It sits on my nightstand while I sleep. My wife named it "Debbie."

    I love my Bronica and the pictures it produces, but I guess the trade-off wasn't only price, but cuddlyness too. I have yet to use the words "Bronica" and "beautiful" in a sentence!

    If I left it on the nightstand....it might be gone in the morning.

    I love it soooo much along with my other Medium Format cameras I created a website for it.... http://gregheath.com

    Just having a bit of fun..

    I only have 2 photos up right now, but I will be out shooting tomorrow.
    I used the website for practice for developing a website for a friend. Rapidweaver for the Mac is awesome.
