Dioon Edule, a cycad native to Mexico - sat for a portrait while I re-learn how to operate my RB-67. I'm sure it does more than just sit there, but that's all I ever see it do. Very cooperative, with it's very light green new leaves. The leaflets on these leaves are soft now, but harden, have very sharp points, and hurt quite a lot. A new seed pod will probably follow these new leaves. Thanks go to my son Drew, @drewhphoto, for pushing me to get the RB out again. He wanted to take it back to California, but that's just not going to happen now. Especially after being reminded how great it is seeing those negative images appear as the wet film rolls off the developing spool. And about the film, T-max 100, expiration date 2010 - 7 years ago. Seems to be just fine.
