Cambo 4×5 – at f 32, waiting…for the children to get off the bus.


I got this from a studio photographer I used to assist in the ’90s.  He was closing his studio to open up a restaurant (trying to find a harder way to make a buck?)  Anyway I used it to shoot product in the old days and only some portraiture.  I know I ought to dust it off and use the decade old Polaroid 55 in my freezer.  But while I love portraits on 4×5, with their restrained and contemplative style, it’s never been my thing to do.   So here it sits, like a piece of art or sculpture in our front room.  Facing the window, at f 32, waiting, waiting….for the children to get off the bus.
