Bette Midler
Divine Intervention Tour
June 2015
Yes, I was dragged to a Bette Midler concert.  No Ian Anderson or George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers, but a very professional and a surprisingly entertaining show.
They said "no professional cameras" so my 60 year old Agfa Record III came in with me loaded with Kodak Porta 800 and pre-set to 1/125 sec, f8, and infinity.  Only took one shot and this is it.  Didn't even look though the viewfinder (no need) just set it on my knee, pointed to the stage, and waited for the right well-lit moment.
I assume it is far better than the iPhones that were flashing off everywhere.
Plan to get the medium format negative printed optically from our friends at Blue Moon camera and send the large print to my buddy.  The concert was his Wife's birthday present last month.
Again, can't do this with digital!

Frustrated as to always having to explain to people why I shoot film and trying to explain image capture size only to get confused looks in response, I decided to mark up on one of the dark slides on my RB67 to help with these discussions in the field.

Love it how you have 6x9 marked on the 'hidden' part of the dark slide!

I have an Uncle that when he was a supervisor at a plant I once asked him if the other people at the plant called him by his nickname.  He replied, “some do, some call me an ass-hole, I respond the same way to both.”
I have found these words to live by for the last 30 years.  Matter of fact at the end of a recent difficult project I gave some of those I worked with an enlargement of this photo and so when someone asked them, “how was it working with John?”  All they have to do it point to this image!
