Cacti

Great shot of the cacti. That works so well in monochrome.

It almost looks like you have transported a sea urchin to the desert :-)

!20-film - not often seen today. Impressive!

That outcome was worked for. I shan't be respooling anytime soon but I am going to get 120 cameras into action. Have to go to eBay for film - when the winter expenses are over.

I agree with rune - my first thought was "sea urchin?!" then I looked again :)
A fine shot, and obviously not just "point-and-shoot".

Nice shot David. One of these days I'm going to get another medium format camera.
