A few of us stopped at a nearby bar that isn’t Founders for a change: The Tin Can. They sell just about every canned beer imaginable. I snapped a few photos with the Fuji X100T that I now seem to carry with me everywhere.
While many move toward carrying only an iPhone or small, mirrorless system, I’ve been thinking bigger.
A Hasselblad is big enough on its own, but add a prism finder, longer lens, and that big awkward flash unit and it becomes downright unwieldy. It’s also awesome. Most of my favorite images from recent years are from the Hasselblads. I blame the Zeiss lenses. I love the look they produce and have yet to find anything matching it.
The flash, a Hasselblad D-Flash 40, is a recent addition. With the 503CXi body, it’s fully TTL and meters directly off the film. This means getting a decent exposure every time without doing much of anything. I just set the camera to f8 and 125th second and shoot.
This is terrific for shooting indoors. I just don’t have the eye or the hands for handheld natural-light shooting indoors. I’ve always preferred natural-light photography, but using the Hasselblad handheld with an on-camera flash creates a different look, and I’m learning to enjoy it.
Smart and funny. A refreshing coming-of-age story.
“Vanishing Waves” sure tries hard to be something but never quite succeeds. The lead was wholly unlikable, and not in a good way.
“A bit of a rattle”, hah! Three stars for being funny, an extra half star for Sir James.
I’m hopeful that if I watch this again, I will enjoy it more. There’s enough there to merit a repeat viewing, but I was only mildly entertained and slightly disappointed.
I don’t understand how so many people read this book and were able to get past the actual sentences. This may be a great book for lovers of time travel stories, but for lovers of writing it falls short.

A few good laughs but I wanted it to be better.
Sometimes Blue Apron meals just nail it. Such is the case with this fettuccini dish. So good.
It’s as good as I remember.
