Getting Ready to Paint

Because of Ms. Fraggy (you know who you are!) I decided to pick up an adapter so I could use my Helios lens from the good old USSR.  I got one to fit my Nikon F-mount cameras.  Several years ago I bought the Praktica film camera, which I really don’t like, along with the Helios lens.  Rambling around the house and randomly taking pictures, I saw the sunlight through the plastic box in which my gouache paints live and liked the way it looked.  Baggies, paint tubes, plastic – modern life in B&W.
