Small Town America – Fernandina Beach

Classic small-town image – Peck High School completed in 1927. It was the only school on Amelia Island, Florida that taught grades 1-12 to African-American students. The good city of Fernandina Beach still uses this building and it is kept in excellent condition. It made for a beautiful picture today on this lovely warm Winter’s day.

The camera and the Instax film really shine when used outdoors under full sunlight. Focus on infinity and hold the camera very still. I believe the ISO of the film is 800.
Also available is Instax Wide Monochrome film at the same ISO.
