Week 21: Stick or Twist?

F2A TMax-3Roll 38 of the year is another of those shot, processed, scanned and uploaded on the same day. Another Sunday arrived at the end of a week that I’d not held a camera, meaning that I had the familiar pressure of needing to get out and shoot to maintain my weekly output. F2A TMax-11As it happens, on several occasions, the same thing has happened and I’ve ended up with pictures that I’ve been happy with, and today was no exception. There’s no high art here, but a couple of everyday family snapshots that I like a lot. It proves that it doesn’t matter what the motivation might be, it pays to get out with a camera…F2A TMax-18So today was another roll of TMax 400, shot through my Nikon F2A Photomic, using only Mike’s Nikkor 28mm f/2 AI-s. He’s thinking of selling it (and the 85mm I also borrowed 4-5 years ago and still have) and I was trying to decide if I should buy it from him or not.

Emily and I walked along the river and had a picnic watching the narrow boats pass by…


Nikon F2A Photomic, Nikkor 28mm f/2 AI-S, Kodak TMax 400, Ilford Ilfotec HC for 6:30 in the sink in the garage, scanned at home too.

  1. I love the first shot! And as for the camera OF COURSE you should buy it. But I’m a huge Nikon fan so maybe I’m a bit biased but the Nikkor lenses are wonderful. I’m on my second FE body and it’s out for repair right now. It has been my all time favorite ever since I came back to film three years ago.
