Here's a Townsend photo, Olympus 35RC, Zuiko 45 mm/2.8. 1/60, F11
For the 16th. Test shot from a new FA. 50mm Nikkor f/1.8 : Arista EDU Ultra 100 : PMK Pyro.
I'll pick up the 17th. Maybe later today someone might take the 18th.
Mustang convertible (not mine as I have the hardtop), Minolta XE with 50mm f 1.4, Kentmere 100
For the 18th, going on with the car theme i found this old Chevy on the street, back in 2009. Olympus XA2, probably Fuji 200.
For the 19th, another car- one that I posted before if no one minds.
my first car- 1969 Mustang (bought it used the summer of 1975) Konica Auto S2 most likely Tri-X
For the 20th. Mamiya DSX 1000B, ISCO Isconar 135/4, ProImage 100 film.
Not wishing to see the 21st go to zero, here is one from my "rediscovered" cache. Taken 1981at one of San Jose, Calif's many auto establishments.
Used a K1000 & 50mm lens. Some unknow color negative film and a v800, with lots of PP work, for the scan. Yes, that is a well known species of urban bird, and it's also well known calling cards, upon the hat.
For the 22nd. Nikon FA : 50mm Nikkor f/1.8 : Ilford FP4 Plus : PMK Pyro
The 23rd is hanging, so here is one from two weeks ago at my Farmers Market. Last friday required a scuba diving housing for the Fed-3 / Jupiter combo, which I do not have !! Astrum 400 @ 250 in Pyrocat HDC. v800 scan.
For the 24th (previously posted). This one from a Kodak Instamatic 124 with Verichrome Pan. I remember having to snap the cartridge open to retrieve the film for developing.
My sister (around 1972) sitting on my parents' 1969 Impala and her friend sitting on a Torino. I remember the Impala's power brakes were touchy compared the Buick I drove in Driver's Ed. I would put my left foot under the brake to make it more difficult to press until I got used to it.
For the 25th: Chicago three days before; Minolta 40mm f2.0
M-Rokkor on Leica M2; Tri-X in L76.
For the 26th (an older images)
CDF, Tupelo. Olympus 35 RC, K2 filter, Ilford FP4+
For the 27th. Canon FTb QL : 50mm Canon FD f/1.4 : Kentmere 100 : PMK Pyro
I'm a Cat
For the 28th
Minolta Himatic 7S forgot wich film I used 2013
For the 29th
Minolta Himatic 7S 2013
That 1969 Impala is Chevrolet at their best. (and in your case, a family matter then). Beautiful car, beautiful photo of Southern living. In that era, my parents had a 1970 Pontiac Catalina wagon (a very special order car, had a 455 Super Duty, triple 4 barrel carb, 400 turbo automatic, AC and looked outwardly like a boring family wagon). It was quite fast, enough to keep up with any muscle car. Mike, I enjoy your photos and commentary on Southern life so much, and your family's experiences.
For the 30th. Bronica ETRs : 150mm Zenzanon MC f/3.5 : Arista EDU Ultra 400 : PMK Pyro
The Write Stuff
To make up for Oct. 1:
wet car, Celtic 50mm f 3.5 Macro on Minolta XE (either plain XE or XE-5), don't remember the film
Hopefully someone will step up and take the 2nd.
No takers for the 2nd, I see. Here's one from around 1977 or 1978 to fill in.
Bored (waiting for Botany Lab to start) Konica Auto S2 (most likely Tri-X)
During my undergraduate days I took a camera with me every day. Mostly the Konica Auto S2, but in spring of 1978 I bought a Minolta SRT 201 with 50mm f 1.7 MC Rokkor. Sometimes I carried a Bell & Howell/Canon Dial 35 as well.
Looks like the 3rd is slipping away.
Park walkway, Minolta HiMatic 7S (FP4+)
