First Roll of film from Hasselblad 501cm

I really love shooting with the Hasselblad so far. When I gaze down into its big, bright screen at that gorgeous square section of the world seen through the viewfinder, it gives me a real sense of the importance of composing and taking pictures. Maybe it's the newness of this perspective, but it makes me take a delicious pause before I consider shooting. This camera doesn't have a light meter of course, so you have to meter externally with a handheld light meter, or as I did on this roll, use another metered camera as a light meter. I used the also-new-to-me Olympus OM-1 passed to me from my father-in-law (I think he purchased it in 1972).

Here are a few shots from a roll of Ilord Delta 100 developed in Rodinal 1+25 for 7 minutes.
