Patience & Persistence: Tools of the Trade

It’s easy to cite camera gear as the obvious tools of the trade when it comes to making photos.    For instance, I used a Hasselblad 500 C/M with a Zeiss Distagon T* CF 50mm f4.0 lens and a Hasselblad 60 1X UV-SKY -0 (1A) multicoated filter to make these images.  The film was Kodak Tri-X Pro 320.  For me, however, the real tools of the trade are nearly always patience and persistence.

I have learned that, if you are patient enough, you can shoot moving targets with a Hasselblad!
