    Current mood: lethargic

    busy week

    What an interesting week it's been for me! On Wednesday I purchased a really nice professional studio camera. It's a Mamiya C-330 Twin Lens Reflex, medium format camera. These things have a great reputation behind them. They yield incredibly nice results because of the huge negative size or 6cm x 6cm, ergo great image quality. I shot my first pictures with it tonight with my pretty friend T. as the subject.

    There will likely be a certain level of trial and error; hit and miss with this new camera as I'm not at all used to using a TLR. But I know I'm going to enjoy it thoroughly.

    It came with 2 sets of lenses, an 80mm normal lens and a 180mm short telephoto range lens. I'm going to take the camera out tomorrow afternoon and do some scenery shots I hope, and perhaps some more shots of T. if she isn't busy.

    In other news, I'm in the process of registering for a computer course coming up in mid July. It's a 4 week course and it's full time, 5 days a week. It's quite intensive. I'm really looking forward to it though, because if I do well I will come out of it with my computer systems technician certificate. It's something I'd really enjoy as a second job.

    I've taken a whole lot of interesting infrared images over the past week as well. There is this really old heritage building in Burnaby near Deer Lake called Ceperly House. It's an art gallery now, but it has quite a history. It's been a home, a school, a mental hospital, and many other things. The most interesting thing is that it's reputed to be haunted--at least it was haunted until the City had some exorcist come in and shoo the ghosts away. Spoiled all the fun.

    Anyway, lots of tourists used to come just to see if they could spot a ghost or two. The place does have a certain spookiness to it.

    I decided to shoot some infrared images around the building just to see If anything weird showed up in the images. Here's some of the resulting images for you to examine:
