I have one to make up for June 3.
Mississippi State Drill Field, circa 1975, Konica Auto S2, Tri-X
The 5th is still available.
Here's the 5th. I think I posted this one a couple of years back.
my dad at a Linotype machine (around 1969). Kodak Instamatic 124 with Kodachrome-X, flashcube
Linotypes (at least at our small newspaper) were replaced by offset printing and early compugraphic machines were used. I remember each machine held a cartridge of stabilization paper which then went into an Ektamatic processor.
For the 6th. Hofbrauhaus, Munich 2015. Pentax ME with Samyang 18-28 zoom.
Gotta love that 18-28, Julio. It (and other rebranded versions) performed well and were a good value. One could actually buy one new for less than the price of a prime ultrawide.
For the 7th
Mamiya M645 80 mm Fuji Pro400H
For the 8th. Minolta Alpha 7 : Minolta 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5 : Arista EDU Ultra : PMK Pyro

Thanks Mike, this lens is a favorite for interiors with my K-mount bodies. It is actually Minolta rebranded.

At age nearly 22, I was immortal, like most of my friends. No thought to the danger of "getting the shot".
When I first got into 35mm photography, my budget was extremely limited, no money for Nikon or Pentax. However, a local camera store had a very nice Petri FT, with the 55mm f/1.8 lens. Meter worked nicely so I bought it for a very good price, < $50. I soon found a Vivitar 135mm f/3.5 and a Soligor 35mm f/3.5, both presets. I belonged to a volunteer rescue squad, and pretty soon I had photos of rescues, a few recovered bodies, and publicity shots for our quarterly publication. On May 5, 1969, a thunderous explosion went off just west of downtown Louisville. I hopped on the car, got there in a few minutes, and approached the scene. At the very outset, I got within a half-block of the fire. I managed to get off three frames before police and fire personnel hustled the lot of us away, about six blocks, too far to really see anything.
The history of the Louisville Fire Department devotes several paragraphs on their web site:
For the 15th. Canon T90 : 24mm Sigma Super Wide f/2.8 : Kentmere 100 : PMK Pyro
