I’m a really impatient person, sometimes to a fault. For example, when I buy something online and it comes with the option to track your shipment, you can just about guarantee that I’ll click on that deliciously attractive tracking link at least 3-5 times – per day – until it arrives. Seriously, is knowing the departure & arrival times at the various UPS hubs along the delivery route doing anything at all?? It’s bad I know. But they say the first step to overcoming something is to just admit it, right? Well, I just recently had a business edition of Merry-Christmas-to-me and added a Contax 645 to my camera setup. And as stated, I was checking the shipment tracking multiple times a day until it showed up at the studio. I couldn’t wait to tear the box open and shoot. The only problem with it arriving was that I had no film to put in it yet because the camera and film shipped separately with different arrival times. #Fail. Talk about adding fuel to that fire of impatience by having a new camera and no way to shoot it!
Eventually the stars aligned and I got a few minutes to put a test roll through it this past week with Christine. And much to your surprise I’m sure, I had it processed locally that same afternoon because I just didn’t want to wait on getting this first roll back. I’m really excited about how these came out, and I’m definitely looking forward to shooting this camera a lot more. Hope you enjoy!
