Perspective

No not the kind you learn about in drawing, this is another way to see w/o a digital screen for once.

Using an old Mamiya C33, I rigged up a camera apparatus that was around 30lbs and somewhat intimidating looking - never mind as I was busy paying attention to the screen so I could see where I was walking... funny thing happens when you focus on a little 'screen'... you can't focus on the ground so well at the same time. (just like people who trip while engrossed in their mobile)

Enjoy as I take you on an unexpected journey through parts of Denver and Boulder, Colorado

My wife just passed by and said quite nice. I think it's love.
So, you mounted another camera fixed with this Mamiya, right?
Seems, same distance all the time.

Indeed you are correct - I may have used a different lens a time or two as these were shot over several weeks/months. Imagine a large L bracket - sort of stabilized itself as it is so heavy. Ever since I watched War Photographer, I've been fascinated with a camera on a camera view point.

screen is wrecked eh? That could be interesting to look through as well... a metaphor for many I'm sure. I suspect most people alive below the age of 30 haven't ever looked through one.

I have always wanted a camera like this, hoping one day to old a medium format camera, looks like a lot of fun!
