  1. Wonderful, to put it into just one word.

    1. That is the sole heir to the VSL fortune..... :-) Taken some sixteen years ago. You know, when we were all carrying our medium format cameras to breakfast...

    2. Heh-heh. At one point, I carried around Pentax 645 cameras like others carried point and shoots.

      Love the picture.

  3. What about that Mamiya 6? They sell for somewhere around 1K used...still a good purchase? I'd be interested to hear your take on that camera all these years later.

  4. Haha, what a cool dude! Mini Kirk. :-)

    Just shot my first test roll with my new (to Me) Mamiya 6 and can't wait for the results.

    @ Carlo - I just paid less than £500 from a UK dealer for an Exc+ 6 & 75mm so keep your eyes open at all times you just never know. The Ken Rockwell review of the Mamiya 6 is a great starting point for a good review of the camera. I love mine so far and grin every time I raise the viewfinder to my eye.

  5. Your photo made me think of this. Another celebrity baby (me) taken with a lowly Kodak Brownie in 1953: http://www.flickr.com/photos/barbaresco/4685061446/lightbox/
