I finally got the Speed Graphic up and running!

This is my grandparents' dining room. I destroyed two precious sheets of film before I got this shot (some problem with the way I loaded the film holders, such that when I put the dark slide back in, they buckled). And you'll see around the edges that the film was slightly askew -- I'm not sure whether the film holder wasn't quite right in the back, or whether I mis-loaded the film holder in the first place.

I guess this could have been a Freedom/Failure Friday entry, but as this is only my second ever large format effort, I'm pretty proud of it. I could have tried to fix the horizontal lines, but I almost wear the full frame, including the skewed exposure, as a badge of pride.

To say nothing of the transcendent exhilaration I feel when I look at the 4x5 chrome in person... So, until you get a chance to come by and check out the real deal, why not view this large?
