I <3 this photograph!

This is one of my favorite images. I took it at 3am with a 35mm SLR that I bought at a yard sale earlier that day. I should stay up late more often!
I'll give you a dollar if you can guess what this is....

Oh, Minolta X-700, how I’ve missed thee…

It’s been about a year or more since I’ve employed my trusty manual SLR. After purchasing a used Cannon Rebel DSLR last summer, I almost forgot the joy of shooting with film. I love the anticipation, the waiting to see if anything on the roll is worth printing. I also really dig the act of composing and focusing a shot the “old fashioned” way. There’s no image-stabilization or auto-focus… it’s all very tactile and therefore rewarding when a shot turns out. Here are a couple of gems from my first “practice” roll. I’m taking a darkroom class in fall so I better get back in the swing of things.

Kind of cute, for a dog...

I don't see these three lovely women as often as I should!
