    Snapped by Sophia, after I set the focus for her. It was pretty cute seeing her using a camera that is about 50 years old.

    Here she is right before she snapped this shot:

      Sophia is now shooting medium format? she is putting me to shame, I am going to grab my camera right now.

      You do that! I've been having withdrawal symptoms, missing your Mamiya shots! And I'd like to see more from that Bessa, too. How are you liking it?

      I posted a bunch of Bessa shots this morning. It's nice. I like using it, but I hate waiting for the 35mm roll to finish. But here I am, 3 shots away from finishing my 220...I have been so slow. Biking takes priority now and it's hard to bike and shoot a manual camera while in Brooklyn traffic.

      You should start buying 24 exposure rolls. Or start rolling your own 12 exposure rolls!

      Good job, you ought to get Sophia her own TLR, my kids are definitely the digital generation though if you can't see what you have just taken...

      ... and what is inside your IIIc, Matt ?

      Alan: Thanks. Maybe some day if she shows interest. To be honest, I think a digital SLR would be a much better learning tool, as long as you keep it in manual mode or at least learn how to use the exposure compensation. I dislike the way I am compelled to constantly look at my digital shots on the LCD immediately after taking them, but for most people that is a huge plus. Especially if you are learning.

      Ming: Neopan 400. I hadn't put any film though it for awhile, so I loaded it last week. As much as I love the Leica and my Yashica TLR, I think I will always be an SLR guy at heart.
