Standby.  Scanning, rotating, and uploading in progress.  Just reserving space for almost 70 photos.

Shot on Lomography Lady Grey 400 35mm on a Pentax K1000 with the stock 50mm lens set to 380 ISO.

A little on the underexposed side, IMO, but the unaltered prints shall be posted shortly.

Should be able to get these in groups of 12, since when I post a ton of photos, it lags the database.  Descriptions above photos.

The first roll of film (37 photos) is just after the prisoner interrogation.  Tascabe needed to do admin stuff, and I was growing tired of staring at the Shtab walls for the last few days, so I went for a ride for fresh air.  No way to justify my existence game wise in the NATO camp, since I was the enemy, so I am simply claiming to be there administratively, and made zero effort to actively interact with anybody, especially since operations were going on.

Tascabe and I leave the Shtab.

Rallying for MUTT work.



Someone said something funny.  I think it involved stereotypes about women drivers.



I've got no witty comment.



MUTT Guts.



Inside the NATO Shtab.  Freshly returned prisoners check in before being sent to get some rack time.



Not this kind of rack time.



US Army troops discussing armory equipment and repair.



A BS Flag was thrown.



NATO Shtab Commo Box being staffed by a Canadian.



Mercy and one other join in as something is afoot.



Not sure what I was going for here.  I think this is supply.



Commo box.

DEFCON 2, 1 shy of outright Nuclear Exchange.  The Alert Status is Yellow.



Map Table Musings.



NATO Also has to fuck with janky ass typewriters.



Mercy looks on while an SOI Sheet is updated.



Badass silhouette of a returning NATO Squad.



Shocking news?



Where Mercy points, Troops go.



Back to the commo box.  I believe everyone was wrapped up in the firefight and MEDEVAC request currently going down.



US and British troops about to leave the NATO Camp.



American troops. "Hurry up and wait."



While waiting, one of them offered to take a photo of me with my own camera.



Americans loading equipment into a MUTT.



Further equipment loading.

Now begins my 2nd and last roll of film, back at Soviet camp.

Tascabe, Doorman, and Curfman planning over the map table.





A bit underexposed version of the propaganda shot.  Although I like the sharp contrast between this East German Soldat and the background.  Not terrible, but could probably benefit from a good dodge and burn session, had I my own enlarger...









Back inside for more mission planning.  Curfman looks enthused.



For those who say that we don't get everyone involved on the mission, not only is HQ staff surrounding the table, the entire section going out on the mission, the far left also has Impulse, the assistant cook!  Quota smashed!



Misha being Misha.



Mounting up to head out.



Grenzers gonna grenz.



Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Hurry up and wait for breakfast.



Kaz pee'd on a bee.



Caption contest...



Ugh.  When you see it, your immersion will cry.



Food time!



Dicks and bread for breakfast.



Not sure what he's smiling about, but I'm pretty sure it's a dick joke.



And a really dark shot of people eating wieners in the dark.



And that's it!

And that's all of 'em!  Thanks for waiting!  Next year I'm going to use Lomography's mail in service.  Should be much faster than having to go to B&H, wait a week, then pick them back up a week later.  That, and I can pay slightly more to also get digital prints, so I don't have to do my own scanning, cropping, re-sizing, and compressing.

Awesome stuff!

I especially like your caption on "When you see it, your immersion will cry". Smiley

Damn I managed to avoid just about everyone's cameras all week and some Australian spy manages to take a half dozen   Tongue

There's an east wind coming, such a wind as never blew on England yet. It will be cold and bitter and a good many of us may wither before its blast. But it's God's own wind none the less, and a cleaner, better, stronger land will lie in the sunshine when the storm has cleared.
