Feedburner? Oh, okay.
Let me start off by saying that I am not technologically ignorant – I am simply very, very busy (I’m a working photographer, not a hobbyist). This is why I am just now getting around to promoting das Blog via my RSS feed, with FeedBurner.
See the little orange chicklet at upper right? If you enjoy reading my thoughts and looking at my photos – and come on now, who doesn’t – click it and be merry. Right now the little counter underneath it reads “zero”, and that’s effin’ pathetic, even though I only just now activated my feedburner account. Like, three minutes ago. Yes, I’m lagging behind the rest of you. Wanna fight about it?
Whoa, now. Let’s not start trouble.
Speaking of trouble, check this out:
I picked up a Mamiya 7 II 6×7 rangefinder. Let’s see how much trouble I can get into with this beast. It was graciously paid for by the sale of my Hasselblad 500 EL/M kit.
Sorry, Hassie fans, but I just love a rangefinder, and I could never get into the feel of a Hasselblad body. It felt like I was trying to balance a refrigerator in my hands, which is hard to do while you’re also trying to be creative and graceful. The Mamiya 7 II may be big – no, it is big – but it’s very well-balanced and quiet as hell. It probably matches my Leica on stealth capabilities, aside from its girth. It has a leaf shutter with a very tiny voice, and the film advance is nearly silent. It’s a Leica on steroids, as Mark likes to say. I can’t wait to get the first test roll back from the lab.
Of course, you all (all “zero” of you) will be the first to see.
