Just you wait...
"Dad, the Hasselblad is OK, but when can I get a *real* camera?"
GAS starts young...:LOL:
She's been insisting we print everything from the iPhone on the Instax Wide printer. It's like she's a hipster or something. I thought we'd have gotten her out of Brooklyn early enough...

Well the last day at the beach was a total bust light rain/haze all day, so I decided to scout out a potential shot for the next time I am here. Wind was probably 25mph, I shot it without frame averaging and with, did not really like either but chose frame averaging, I preferred the softness.

Silver Creek in Halton Hills, Ontario, isn't going to make it on anyone's natural wonders bucket list. But it's still an important little water body that connects to other streams that feed the Credit River, which drains into Lake Ontario. I've been working here since last summer as part of a lager project. In the Summer and Fall of 2022, water levels in the creek were very low, and this area was almost bone dry. I went back this week to see how it was doing during early Spring. Not surprisingly, there's a lot more water, and it actually looks like a vigorous little creek. The trees haven't leafed out yet, so it's still looking a bit dull. If the summer is dry again, there will only be a trickle of water in the creek.

This was my first "real" day out this year with my new(ish) Arca-Swiss F-Universalis and the two Mamiya N lenses I adapted for this setup earlier this year. This first picture is with the Mamiya N 43mm f/4.5 L. The second one is with the Mamiya N 65mm f/4 L. They're both superb optics for this kind of work on the F-Universalis.

Do you ever get setup to shoot and think maybe you picked the wrong spot? Well that was how I was feeling on this shot. I wondered what they were seeing that I was not, but did not want to know bad enough to make that journey across the dunes.
