It’s easy to go through much of life paying attention to the times that one is unlucky, but if we spend all of our energy on ignoring the times we are lucky, it is easy to miss out on a lot of the fun life can provide. I remember hearing about Hasselblads back in the day. I’d never really considered medium format to be something I’d ever realistically get to play around with. My limited expendable income was always directed to other areas. As fortune and luck would have it, the father of a girl that I was dating, was a photographer. Not just a photographer, but a connoisseur of all things photographic. His history with photography was inspiring, his knowledge intriguing, his collection of cameras was a thing of beauty. I knew, I needed to marry this girl.
