Fall comes subtly in the Northwoods, with the first sign being the emergence of the various species of Goldenrod. The Milkweed pods and plants are drying and will be ready by the time our weather is cool to send their seeds via parachutes hither and yon.

The shot above was taken with the Rolleiflex 3.5F that was just cleaned, lubed, and adjusted by Paul Ebel in Menominee, WI. The shutter purrs accurate at all speeds, the focus is adjusted, and it is, for all practical purposes, like it was at birth in the early 60's. Paul does incredibly good work with such delicate instruments. He also has my 3.5T and will get the Vb when done with that.
