(Fashionably late to the) FP4 Party!

Well, this being the first full week of March (2019), it’s shoot week for the March edition of the FP4 Party, and I currently have a roll of 120 in the Cambo C2 holder, and am slowly shooting through it.

Since then, I’ve felt a bit of malaise about photography, and I’ve taken a bit of a break. In an attempt to kickstart my interest, and put some fresh content on the blog, here, then, are some pictures from the new-to-me-and-still-in-testing LC-A
