    Ian, Derek, TTO, holdfast stitches. a lot of great fits in this thread lately. time to break that combo:

    white shirt & tweed + pleated navy flannel odd trousers and a TV fold square. MC's favourite pairing.

    I'm not a big fan of Red Bull Energy, but I am quite fond of their cola. Not because of the 'all natural' hippie BS but I actually prefer the taste over regular coke.
    I brought this tray along for me and my friends for our monthly film night with Cuba Libre and Mojito. So no need to be concerned about my sugar levels.

    We watched Enter the void and Un Prophète (both '09) and had Créole Shrubb to go along with the French theme.


    @braddock very nice rig. But I'm not sold on the shirt in this combo.

    OT: Are you the tenant of a manor or is it just well maintained 'Altbau' ?

    Braddock, that is an awesome suit, but I am afraid you just have way too much going on with it. Tone it down, less bright colors, less patterns, and it could be great.

    I mean, if you dont have a choice, you dont have a choice. But IMO, it looks very juvenile, like a kid that was forced to dress up so his mom stuck on a tie and called it a day.

    Yeah, maybe a plain (light blue) shirt would works better. It's just a typical "Berliner Altbau". [​IMG]

    It is indeed a high buttoning point, though a little exaggerated because the position of the tripod and lens ( 2 meters away, mid torso height, and some sort of 35mm) causes a slight bowing effect. Given my proclivity for true three buttons, I suspect I just like high buttoning points.

    I have no idea what that hose is for. But it (along with the bowing) is causing me to rethink where I take my pictures...but given the size of my apartment (and that maybe 15% of the area is taken up by clothes), my options are limited.

    Edit: Just saw HF's question. It is most definitely not a 3 button with just the top button fastened. I like 'em high, but that would be...well...if that were the case, I suspect I would be in dire need of your services.
