I had called the hospital but my
wife said, just
hang out, it'll be a while. So I got out the trusty
Kodak 2D 8X10 and made these images with
the diminutive Bausch Lomb 10" f5 Petzval.
First to catch my eye was a strange
lily is almost ebony in color so it is subdued in
black and white.

Next the designs and patterns on
the back lit
office chair caught my eye. This would be a
subject to use some of the different modes
possible with this particular old petzval. 1st
is with the full petzval.

Next I removed the front and seperated
2 glasses at the rear, putting the inner one
up front and the outer one in back. That
gives a very soft lens. I love the minimalism
of this shot.

Finally I put the front group in
the rear of
the lens by itself. It is an achromatic
meniscus and has a fine soft sharp look.
I did the final office chair with
and also the picture of Megan's entry.
