I really need to get a job so I can afford to buy a Hasselblad. There's nothing like the look you get from a medium format camera. Nice job.

It's interesting, you may be using the equipment you used to, but the 'feel' is different. I guess your a different person than what you was and that somehow shows.

BTW, I really like the shot, great crispness, tone and of course expression! :)

Opps, with my last comment it linked to an old blogger account I had. Please ignore the link!

Love it. Thank God we still have film cameras.
Still using my M6 and still like it better in use than anything digital i've used. But the EP3 is tempting me.

I see Olympus is sending you some quality swag. The photo looks great to me, like you went back 15 years to take it, with Ben. Funny thing, I just sent in an old roll of T-max 400 I had in the bottom of a drawer from 1992, some photos of my now passed father. Enjoyed the scanned and self-printed photos enough that I finally bought batteries for my two OM2's, and our camera shop only sells T-max 400 (he says it scans better than tri-x, who knows). Now to buy the 70$ of developing equipment I need, a scanner, and I should be set...

Back to the future Tri-X and a 'blad is a tough combination to beat. There is still a somehting about film that is different. Maybe the tonality but film does have its advantages.
