I shot with some absolutely gorgeous models today, a friend of mine, Krazy-Chan (who I met at the 4th Calgary devMeet, and a friend of hers, named Riss. Let me get this out of the way: Riss is six foot one and absolutely BEAUTIFUL. It's not even fair. Such is the life of a photographer, what a pain!

Hah, I jest. It was a total blast.

I also finished off the rolls of film in all of my cameras. (I botched loading the Nikkormat, so the roll didn't even take. DAMN.)

Should have lots more up soon!

Almost-Leica Slacker

(Leicaslacker being a term borrowed from Kyle Cassidy of the PLUG. (Philidelphia Leica Users Group)

I've got a CL in the mail, and a 40/2 Summicron-C that will likely get here before the camera does. Great. I'll have a pristine lens with no caps, and no camera to mount it on. Maybe I'll follow Kyle's reccomendation and buy a bottle of Ephadrine just for the cap to use on the rear. I hate Canada Post.

I've also got a non-functional Minolta Hi-Matic 7s. I'm going to fix it, and I'm going to love it to pieces.

I'm also working on picking up a Kodak Retina IIc, either a user or a looker that works, I haven't decided yet. Cheap vs. pretty...hmm. Tough call.

I'm also pretty much the worst at posting photos here. I need to haul myself off my angsty teenage ass and develop some film. But I guess that means I have to finish some rolls.

With this many cameras, it's harder than you'd think.

Working on it.

Agfa Karat IV - 15/36
Canon TX - 34/36
Nikkormat FTn - 19/36
Zorki 6 - approx. 11/36
Kiev 4 - 14/36
Fujica 35-SE - 3/36
Zeiss Ikon Ikonta 521 - 12/24
Yashicamat LM - 2/12

I'll get there yet. Just you wait and see.
