Funny retro story. I was saving it in case I ever wrote another piece of fiction... I was out doing the civil war thing standing there with my homemade press camera (converted from a polaroid 250) with two big boxes on containing a second press cam and the other a crap load of film holders, when a man with a huge huge dslr came to stand beside me.
He is popping off picture of everything that moved. I of course was standing trying to not be embarrassed. Suddenly one of the "soldiers" came by to ask about my camera. We got to talking and before I knew it I had a crowd around listening to me talk about retro photography.
The punch line: I looked up, probably to gloat, The other photographer was shooting pictures of the crowd around me just as fast as he could pull the trigger. The irony wasn't lost on ME.
