Roll 14 – more point and shoot fun

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.

  1. Reblogged this on Blatherskite and commented:

    Hey there! I’ve been away for awhile. I’ll update soon on my exciting whereabouts. But for now here is my most recent post on 52 rolls to keep you busy.


  2. Nice pictures specially the trees. I noticed the old telephone in the entrance of the building. I haven’t seen one of those telephones in quite a long time.


    • I didn’t even notice that old fashioned phone! I am going to be back over there tomorrow and I am going to have a closer look 🙂


  3. The AF35ML is a quite nice one. But pretty noisy as Jim pointed out on his blog. I have two of them and they’re a little bit different. For example one has ISO 25 and the other has ISO 1000 instead.
