what's black and white and awesome all over?

I just got back from 60 Minutes Photo to pick up the prints from my first roll from Ida. I am seriously in love. Ida is a 1950s Kodak Signet and calculates exposure with a slide rule. Focus is very iffy and there are almost no controls. She has a fixed focal length so using her is an exercise in creativity and adaptation. And oh, how beautiful black-and-white film looks when seen through her eye.

This is just a teaser to tide me over while I scan the rest of the prints.
