School outing to Kamakura, Japan – 1977

Late Spring 1977. I believe these steps led up to The Great Buddha (Kamakura Daibutsu). I do not know which school the students were from.

Camera & Film – Yashica TL Electro X Kodak Ektachrome 64

This is not my actual first camera but it’s the first 35mm SLR model that I owned and purchased new in early 1972.
I’ve shot quite a few rolls of this back in the 1970s. Kodachrome was a great color slide film but its ASA was only 25 so if you wanted a bit more speed you needed Ektachrome 64 and later High-Speed Ektachrome 200.
