Thanks, Gerry.  I've been using 120 lately for that reason--it more or
less forces me to think more about each shot.  I also consider that the
same amount of chemicals will process 12 pictures in medium format as 72
in 35mm.  This one was a guessed exposure--I figured that wide open at
1/15 and ISO 200 would do the trick, and it did! It was a SWAG (silly
wild-assed guess) that worked.

Really nice image Jim. I have fond memories of the Minolta Autocord as it
is what I cut my teeth on as a trainee wedding photographer back in the
early 70's. I remember the studio had a cut out fitted to the viewfinder
to indicate the crop for an upright and a view print by blocking off the
corners of the frame. Three rolls of 120, and trouble if you broke into
the fourth! A slight difference from todays digital shoots.
