I decided to ride the Norman Conquest bicycle ride at the last moment. I got up at 5 am, loaded my bike, my Toyo View VX-125 large-format camera system, and my Pentax 67 camera bag. I was running late by the time I got to Norman and only had about 20 minutes to grab some pictures before the start of the ride. I grabbed my Pentax 67 and my 90mm F2.8 lens, loaded a roll of Kodak TMAX-100 film, took a meter reading, then went around asking people if I could take their portrait with my camera. This time I loaded my film properly and got a full 10 frames, compared to the 8 frames I had been getting for the past few weeks when I wasn’t loading my film properly. These photos are in the order that I took them on the roll.
