Rock Stains & White Flowers, Girraween

I took this with my Mamiya Super 23 on a trip to Girraween a few weeks back. I know it's not quite large format but it's all I can offer these days. It was my first real photo trip in years and it felt great to get out and shoot some film.

You really were caught between a rock and a hard place; so to speak.

If you moved down so the white flowers were in front of the dark shrubbery, you would have lost the rock stains, if you moved higher to highlight the rock stains more, your flowers would suffer.

You managed to come up with a very good compromise.

I have never seen a Mamiya Super 23, did a web search, seems to be a very nice camera, quite the all rounder it would seem.

Well considering that there was a giant boulder behind me and the slope was about 40°, I think your figure of speech was pretty accurate.

Mick,

Have a look at the work of the renowned William Eggleston; much of his work was on C-41 and the Mamiya 23. As I recall there were a few cracker lenses for the camera and it did offer some back movements on some models.

Walter, thanks for that, I never knew what he used, apart from the small fact that I don't know much about him at all.
