You know what I love about this roll of Agfa? The popping-bright reds. It’s really great.
Shot this roll mainly on the mean streets of Chicago, but saved a few shots for the hometown scene. Like the
Tri X, I shot this roll using my Canonet.
Good stuff. One film to remember.

Tried out a roll of Kodak Tri X 400 on my Canonet since, gosh, this past winter (the snow-covered driveway gives it away).
For the first time, I sent a few rolls of film away to get processed and printed, with great results. It’s not cheap, but quality counts.

It seems I’ve become the “Dave Will Take Your Old Film Camera” guy.
To be fair, I did pick up the Canonet at a yard sale. The film, too (all of it expired), was a flea market grab.
I’s been a fun way to stretch the photography hobby into new areas. Yes, it’s expensive, and yes, there’s a learning curve. But what else do you do with a hobby but spend money and pick up new skills?
Missing from this photo: a Yashica Mat 124 TLR camera a friend from high school gave me. My first foray into medium format.

More film photography is in my future. I nabbed a box full of expired film at a flea market. That, plus a few film cameras, puts me in good shape to shoot.

I always love how the
Phoblographer takes glamor shots of their cameras, usually with a rugged wooden table or canvas camera bag as the backdrop. So this weekend I took a leather jacket and tried to do the same with a bunch of my cameras, including this little Canon rangefinder.
More to come!
