I’m writing this at the start of the summer. I wish you a summer like the evening these pups and these ‘cans are having up there. Best wishes to everyone!
Exploring the east coast of Lake Michigan in May 2014 with the Argus AF. The quality of the film must have been really different than last time (See the post on FYF last year) because everything had a strange sepia tone to it. Very strange.. but there are some nice timeless shots that this old 80 year old camera generated. Pretty happy with it!
Dudeski 2014 up on Mount Hood in Oregon. Shot with the F3. It was a good one!
Salton Sea area and some LA shots using my SMENA camera, which is a little Russian camera from the 50’s.
Birding on Dockweiler beach and some specimens at the Moore Zoology Laboratory at Occidental College. And a golden beet.

Although this streetlamp installation in front of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is a tired subject for photos, I changed it up a bit by trying out my Zenit-E camera. 12 million were built in the USSR for 2 decades (60’s to the 80’s). They were exported to the west, but according to Wikipedia, people had a hard time being convinced that this clunky and primitive SLR with outdated technology was the right camera to take out for the day on the beach with the family. These two statements help to explain why I found it at a yard-sale in Gloucester Massachusetts several years ago. But it resulted in some interesting photos captured through a Carl Zeiss lens.
