Yes, I am! 🙂
I’m spoiled by my DSLR!
I unearthed my analog medium format cameras again recently.
I love to work with them!
Last sunday I took my Bronica SQ-B for a walk in a forest nearby.
It was quite stormy, but the air smelled wunderfully and I instantly fell into some kind of meditative state.
I walked for approximately half an hour very slowly and took about 10 Black and White pictures.
Than I went home…
…and could not have a look at these pictures right away!!! 😀
And that is why I say I’m spoiled.
I’m so used to be able to see my pictures right away nowadays,
that it is a challenge for me now, that I have to wait, until my negatives come back from the lab!
But I can remember the times when it was absolutely normal to wait for the negatives and than sit there hours and hours, scanning them! 😀
Usually I was disappointed at first.
In my imagination my pictures always were the best, breathtaking pictures the world had ever seen! 😀
I had to wait a few weeks or months even, before having another look at the pictures. Than my bias was gone and I could really see them as they were:
Some mediocre, some quite good, a few awesome…
This last bit didn’t really change though! 🙂
Well, until those rolls from last sunday are scanned, I’ll just show you some of my older photographs!
