Daffodils Through An Old Lens

Today I had about an hour to play with in between varies chores and social obligations. I grabbed my D60 and an old Nikon 35mm film camera lens and set off to get some snaps in. I do not know about all cameras but when you mate a manual film camera lens with a modern DSLR the light metering can be less than optimum. So I snagged an app for my iPod that came in very handy today. The first photo is an unedited but slightly cropped shot from today. The second is what the app looks like on my iPod. I will try it out with my extension tubes as I shot macro later this Spring.

Pictures Past

One of the Fam has gifted me with a new computer for my Birthday. Since it is uncluttered to the ninth degree, something my old computers wasn’t, I will be spending the next several day deciding how to keep this one less disheveled than the last. What does that mean to you? Nothing really but I have need to post so I will be using some pics from my sites past. I will  hopefully have some new things to present in a week or so but till then here is Pictures Past.

Some 35mm B&W Film Love

I took the following photo at a Celtic Festival. I ask this young lady’s mother if I could take it and she said yes. I would not have otherwise but I think this is one of my best B&W captures. I was using the Bride’s Minolta X-370 35mm film camera.I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.5-25-2006-23

Rain Delay

Because of the much-needed rain showing up this weekend I have not taken but a few shots since last week late. So here are three of one of my favorite subjects while I am on rain delay! The top and bottom I took with my Minolta 35mm film camera in the morning one weekend.The middle with my beloved, and no longer working, Canon PowerShot S3is at dusk.

35mm Film That’s How I Roll

Here are a several 35mm film photos I took several years back. Enjoy!

Not very well composed and the exposure is way off but I still like it. (35mm film)
