One thing I never seem to do much of is macro (close-up) photography. Last weekend I shot a roll of macro work on my Mamiya RZ67 and 65mm/4.5 lens. Being a bellows camera, the RZ 67 can extend quite a bit, and the 65mm can focus quite closely.
I was out this past Sunday morning with my Mamiya RZ67 camera. It is large, fairly heavy and really needs to be mounted on a tripod. I have recently moved away from Large Format/4×5 (you can hear my reasons why on a recent episode of MPP) and am finding that shooting this camera on a tripod gave me everything I needed for that kind of experience, without the downsides.

Fujifim Neopan Acros film
We got home yesterday afternoon, so I have been able to start developing the backlog of film I have needing developing. One of the attractions we visited in St. Louis was the Scott Joplin Museum, a house where Joplin lived for a time around the turn of the 20th century. I liked the look and the light of this window in the kitchen.
