…And in other news, the my Lomo Jupiter 3+ was apparently mis-focusing all along, as the LTM adapter I had on it (no, not the proper one from the box…) was apparently out-of-whack.

A respectable Rayqual adapter seems to have fixed the problem.

Insight

On Tuesday afternoon, we made a very stupid mistake.

 

We thought we were making it for the right reasons;

But in hindsight…the decision was completely wrong.

We decided to adopt Mila out to a new home.

 

Mila growled at the first couple, and would not go near them…so that was a “no”.

The second woman, however, was very genuine, and Mila seemed to bond with her immediately.

So, with tears streaming down my face, I handed her over…

And away she went.

 

Despite her brief stay with us, we spent the next 24 hrs extremely sad.

Fortunately, sadness has a way of bringing things into sharp focus.

 

So last night at midnight, we realized our mistake.

We emailed the dear woman to try and get her back;

And fortunately, she understood.

(She had a dachshund, a cat, and a husband in the house, so she was not alone…)

 

This afternoon, Mila came home to stay.

And all is once again as it should be…chaos and all.

I am thankful we had a chance to correct our mistake.

The Project

It’s the sort of thing that begs for MF B&W film.

I didn’t get exactly the type of shots I envisioned…but I guess I’m happy with how these turned out.
