I’m still learning my new camera. Today I reset the camera back to its factory settings. These images were taken in P program mode with the camera setting all of the exposures. There’s still lots to learn.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day! – Chris

Macro Monday – vintage film

Hello all!

I hope your day is going well and you’re staying safe. Here’s a vintage 1950s metal film can from Fuji Film. Neopan is a black & white negative film.

I’ve had this film can for years unopened. It was included with a Yashica Pentamatic that I acquired years ago.

I found this pinback in a camera bag from the late 1970s. It was a wonderful goal then and a worthy goal now especially in light of the pandemic.
