Although it took about eight months to get familiar with my newly acquired Graflex Crown Graphic 4x5 camera, I'm finally out shooting!
While my exposed Kodak Ektar and High Speed Infrared is at the lab for processing, I shot some Polaroid 57 High Speed Instant Film. Although expired in the 1990s, the film still yielded a reasonable if not grindy image.

Special thanks to Mat Marrash for the help in the field and in the lab!
