Gus after

A little later he had less hair. We decided to let him keep a bit in the front. Hope it is not too "Eighties". Of course since he was not even born then, it may be okay for him, no embarrassing memories.

Can you find the Fed 3?

Gus woke up Sunday morning with a lot of hair.

One of the few airports built on the site of a Naval battle, or so I have been told. Have a few hours hear before the flight to Tel Aviv, so doing a bit of blogging and some email.

The flight over was pleasant enough, though I did not sleep much. I called KLM before the flight to make sure I had a vegetarian meal. I was told they had something called "Hindu vegetarian" which sounded like Indian food, so I was pretty excited. Unfortunately it just means "strict vegetarian" so for the first time in my life I had a bagel with no cream cheese. I don't know what they were thinking.

The dinner was actually not so bad, even though it was just green beans and rice. The stewardess (can I still say that?) was nice enough to bring me a piece of chocolate cake, which the others got.

Seems like I am blogging my usual subjects, pictures and food descriptions. In fact, it is making me hungry. I hope they have something decent here.

pepper, originally uploaded by efroymson.

Okay. I put the Industar lens (I-62 2.8/52) that I paid $5 for (shipping from Russia was more, but price includes Fed 3 camera attached to its back) onto my RD-1, set the camera for black and white, and took this picture of my dining room table.

I am not convinced this is a work of art, but it does look pretty cool.

It was also a bit weird to use a no-stops aperture ring. Where are my clicks?

The black thing is my pepper mill, in case the title confused you.
