Good things

I’m currently on a pretty intense shopping ban, but I recently did a trade with Julia for this bag (she was kind enough to include a pouch!) and got reimbursed for something I bought for work that I forgot about (they seriously take ages sometimes) that I decided to treat myself to a camera with. The bag is ah-may-zing, exactly what I’ve been looking for forever, and the camera terrifies me (it’s SO HEAVY!). A Mamiya 23 Press with a 6×7 back* – does anyone else have one? It didn’t come with a darkslide but the ebay seller assures me it works without it, which seems crazy to me. I’m going to give it a try anyway. I’ll share the results, if any, ha…

*the lens cap says leica, but it is certainly not a leica lens! that would be magical.
