Another large-format 4″x5″ film photo from my early-morning walk-around and photograph strangers’ at Mary’s swap meet in Midwest City, Oklahoma. This guy was really friendly and happy to let me take his picture. It was difficult to meter the scene and focus the camera because of the bright sunlight, deep shadows, and glare on the lens. I missed focus on his glasses and instead focused on the wall behind him. Oh well, that is why it is called practice.
