I stood out in the blizzard today with my speed graphic doing some handheld photos in the downtown. I focus with the ground glass, close the metal hood, put the film in, review settings, cock the shutter, pull the darkslide. Then I stood motionless for about 3-4 minutes looking through the viewfinder waiting for a person to walk into a particular part of the composition. The snow and wind was so nasty, almost nobody was out and about walking. Normally, someone would walk where I wanted every few seconds and cars and trucks would be where I didn't want them. Finally after a lonnnnnggg wait, I saw what I needed happening and took the photo.
