It comes once a year

...birthday self portrait.

Taken with Nikkor-M 300mm lens which Melody gave me for my birthday on my Toyo 45CF large format camera and Fuji FP-3000B instant film. In fact I used a whole pack taking portraits this afternoon.

@fueast it stopped raining for a bit and was some nice light so got to take some shots with new lens. Incredibly sharp. This shot was taken at f.16 but outside was using it at f.90.

Hyvää syntymäpäivää, or as you English speaking people would say, Happy birthday! :) (What are those circle thingies in the background? The ones that look like an Audi logo? :D )

Great portrait. Like the look you have going on here. The only thing I would do different is just crop it a little closer to the top of your head. Have a happy birthday!
