Recently Developed Film

Many of you already know I enjoy using film. It's not just the characteristics of film providing the experience for me, but more the camera used. My collection of old cameras include many produced from Pentax long ago, some even before I was born. The K1000 was given to me nearly 20 years ago, a simple, yet elegant and beautiful camera creating a long relationship with Pentax products. It still works perfectly and is a pleasure to use.

The joy I get when using the Pentax MX is hard to describe, but it still makes me smile every time. I don't know if it's the LED light meter in the viewfinder moving up and down as I adjust my exposure or the bells and whistles built into such a small package. (Maybe a future post should include a few pictures of my film cameras.)

After just finishing a roll of film recently in the MX I picked up the results last week. Here are a few pictures from the roll.

Portraits of Children

Last week I did some portraits of children. Here are a few samples.

A Few More . . .

I just wanted to highlight a few non-traditional shots taken not too long ago.

Recently Developed Pictures


There were quite a few nice pictures from this shoot, so it was difficult to pick a couple to showcase here.

From the Weekend

Here's a few photos of Bailee from the weekend.

Is it a Surprise, Film Again?

More Outdoor

With the temperatures dropping and nice weather here I'm taking more photos outside. The photos below were taken with film up in the mountains.
There used to be a bridge here, long before I was around:


Spending a lot of time outdoors lately I've come across a few good photo opportunities with flowers, so here's a few of my recent favorites:
Some of you may recognize the flower below from the dragonfly pictures posted not too long ago.

Hanging Out with Film Again

These pictures were taken during the weekend.

More Film

These are from last week:


I was so excited to see this large blue dragonfly I put the film camera down and pulled out my digital camera. This dragonfly had to be four to five inches long!
Here's a crop of the above photo for more detail:

And finally, here's one with a couple extension tubes added to the camera behind the macro lens.
