All the way to Tacoma

Spent part of this week outside of Phoenix on an business trip. As usual, I spent most of my time in the hotel, but I did sneak out one evening for some shots of the golf course with my Diana and a roll of Ilford Fp4.

I need to buy Kris new opera glasses

I made a lens for my Graflex Speed Graphic out of a broken pair of opera glasses. It’s a simple, one element lens. My rough calculations make it to be 63mm and f3.2.

The first images came out nice. I will experiment more. I definitely want to stop it down to f8 or f11.

Shot on Fomapan 200. Developed in MC-TEA.
