    It’s here!

    It’s raining and generally disgusting outside right now. Hopefully it’ll clear out this afternoon so I can start to gather some photons.

    As I’m typing this, it starting raining harder, haha.

    This will be interesting. I've been going through a drought of creativity. Haven't taken a photo in months other than to document something. Have fun Jon.

    Some of the best images I've seen were taken in the rain.

    The plan is to use my N75 for most of my shooting with this lens, and I realized I had 30 exposures of Agfa VISTA 400 in still in it from last year. It’ll be interesting to see how the rest of that roll works out. I’m hoping to get through that roll and the roll of Ektar I bought before the week is up.

    I have some Eastman 5222 and some expired Ilford PanF. I'll shoot the XX @500 and the PanF @box. Both have been frozen since new and should be fine. Both will see not quite stand in Rodinal @50:1. Have some ideas what I'm going for and the development is part of it.

    I got through about 40 frames between today and last Sunday. The lens will be off to @MartinCrabtree tomorrow!

    It's here. Unfortunately the snow is melting fast. It has a couple scuff/scratches on the front element. A couple quick shots with the D90 show no apparent effect on images. Off to work. :D

    Well I managed to leave the lens at home while out of town. No photos. Duh. As soon as I have an address I'll send it on to the next victim. Might even manage to take a few photos.

    Well, no lens yet. Don't see the point anymore. I can't access the flickr group, it keeps saying join by invitation only. Haven't tried the desktop site yet but it does it with the app. Has anyone posted anything yet?

    Ok, it's the mobile app. I sent a request through the desktop site.
