“If you’re going to count on the competition to bring out your best work, you’ve surrendered control over your most important asset. Real achievement comes from racing ahead when no one else sees a path—and holding back when the rush isn’t going where you want to go.”

Aoife Mannix, Riga. 

Long time, no photo-post. Life gets in the way sometimes. But I’ve added a new camera to my arsenal: I’m now shooting with a Bronica ETRSI. It’s a different experience from shooting with the Yashica 124G I shot with for most of last year, and the format for prints comes out as a rectangular 6x4.5 (as opposed to the Yashica’s square 6x6). The Bronica is heavier, more of a conventional single lens form factor complete with loud mirror drop action and demands a bit more dexterity to operate; the Yashica seems designed for ease of operation, where settings and focus can be adjusted without any significant shift of grip. 

That said, I’m already falling in love with the Bronica. It arrived just before a trip to Latvia, and I was cautious with it, not knowing how it would handle. Having seen the first couple of rolls, I’m wishing I’d shot more.
