To be honest, I never thought I would own a Hasselblad. I have a fantastic medium format camera in Lucy, and the price of a Hasselblad is well out of my budget. Then, in the beginning of February, some dear friends gifted me James. He is a beautiful black Hasselblad 500CM. I cried. I don't mean the sweet type of crying where the tears well up in your eyes. I mean the ugly, your body shaking cry.
I can't tell you how much I love shooting with him. I can't seem to remember to take out the dark slide, but I am sure I will get it one day. All of my favorites from February come from him. They had to, right?
There are some amazing photographers I get to do this project with. Start with Second Spring and then roll through the rest of the circle.
