  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

Love love LOVE! :-) Congrats on the new camera!

Congrats. Mats are fab cameras. Have lots of fun.

Congratulations on the new camera (and job!)

These pictures are great... I love the lighting.

What a great camera for all-around medium format shooting. I used one back in the 1970s when I was much younger and now have three of them (two 124Gs and one 124)sitting in my closet. Enjoy!

Medium format is hands down my favourite format. I have three rolls in the refrigerator waiting to be developed. It's like Christmas every time I pick up my negatives.

Enjoy the Yashica. It's a wonderful camera.

Claire, I LOVE THESE. Oh my word. I would love to get together with you some time and do work with our Yashicas-- that top one is so bloody great. How did you get the exposure so perfect?

By the way that 'how did you get the exposure so perfect' question wasn't rhetorical. I really want to know!

Thank you everyone! I have a feeling this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Congratulations on the job, Claire! And on the camera! And gorgeous photos above.

I've always wanted to get a really good sparkler shot but never could. Think it's the camera that makes the sparklers look so sparkly and great? Maybe next 4th, once we're in Columbus, I can hire you to take some shots of BK with some sparklers. Sounds weird, but I've always wanted that sort of shot of him.
