Tulips ... and a hernia!

By Ericsamson
Apologies for not keeping up this week. Will have to play catch up tomorrow. I'll get there!

A Film Friday posting of tulips in their prime. They have now withered. As indeed have I. 🥴
The camera used for this is the Mamiya C330 which is lovely to use ... but very heavy. Essentially a brick with two lumps of glass on the front. I find that, at my time of life, it is necessary to press 'The Acme Gentleman's Discreet Support Corset' into service before venturing out with this particular piece of equipment.

Many thanks for views, votes, comments and awards for previous uploads. I think I've caught up with messages of thanks but still have one or two PMs to send out.

All the best for the weekend, G. 😀

No man should be without one.
I rest my case.

And so do I. A martyr to overpacking. 🥴

Thank you for your 'support'.

Lovely tulips, Graham, plus an even lovelier camera. I used to aspire to a Rolleiflex, but never quite got there before starting on 35 mm trail!!

Be assured of our collective support in these troubling times, Graham. Albeit, not support of the hands-on variety, but more of the spiritual variety.

I photographed a couple of weddings with a C330, Graham.
The customers were pleased but my back has never recovered . . .

Two beautiful images for thismold workhorse of a camera Graham. I never moved up from 35mm. Even that I found difficult to carry at times.

I once had a similar twin lens camera, a Yashica. Never used it a lot, and sold it when a fellow Camera Club member fancied it! 😃
Lovely capture of the tulips, Graham, the lead being my fave 🌷😃👍
