It’s been awhile since I have posted here. I have gotten a bit busy and haven’t had time to blog. I have had time to shoot, however.
Roll 14 I had fun with a point and shoot camera, again.
One of the things I love about my town is that it is quiet at night. I live in a small town about 45 minutes away from Portland and I love the stillness of it in the evenings. The downside of this is that there isn’t much to do here in on a Saturday night. Often, my husband and I will go for walks. Our walk on a past Saturday night in March took us to the local Goodwill – the only business (besides the bars) that is open until 9:00 on a Saturday night.
I made a beeline straight to the discarded camera section. It is a bin in the very back of the store filled with all kinds of sad, old, electronics. Every once in awhile I will find something interesting. There were quite a few good things that Saturday but the camera that I came away with was a Canon Sure Shot.
I took it out for a spin the next day and am rather delighted with the results of this little camera. It didn’t do well with close up shots (I tried a few portraits of my husband and they were blurry) but it did pretty well otherwise. You can read a great review here on Jim Grey’s blog “Down The Road.”
Film used was Arista 100 and it was developed in Diafine.
