Frame: Stump

So a couple months ago, my beloved Pentax 6x7 body broke down. I finally got around to buying another one on Ebay this last week, and unfortunately it doesn't work quite right. The shutter "bounces" at 1/1000th of a second, causing half the frame to turn out unexposed (See below). So, I'm going to send it back and try again with a different Ebay seller. Sigh. I did like getting to shoot with a 6x7 again, though, and enjoyed my time testing out the camera. I took this shot in a forest preserve in Morton Grove. I used Ilford Delta 400 film. This is a scan, not a print.

The replacement Pentax 6x7 at 1/1000th... damn.
