What will the Belair bring?

Pre-order is in and I'm already planning what to shoot.

I’ve always had a plan. Even if it’s a bad one. So when I decided to make the jump to medium format, I had to have some idea of what the goals are. First, the camera has to be right. City Slicker is so my style. (Read: Cheapest one of the lot)
Next I should use a film I know. Earl Grey (why do I hear Patrick Stewart’s voice?) will fit that bill. Processing? Had to buy a reel.
I still have more than a month to go, so there’s still time to buy storage for my negatives.
Finally, the good part!! What should I shoot? I know, and you will all have to see what I come up with. Once the camera arrives that is… Anticipate much?

    I've got one coming too! It'll be my first medium format where I have any kind of ISO control (I've been using a Holga 120N before now). Should be interesting.

    @clickiemcpete Based on your experience (and what you've shared of your camera collection in your home) your comment whets my appetite even more. @oldtimer-rfh Thanks I'll try my best to. Prints are in my future too I'm sure. Portraits I must try more portraits. @lokified ISO control is SO over rated ;-) Bulb shooting all the way!!
