I love film. And cats.

October 4, 2010

I had been wanting an old film camera for a while, and I had read that Pentax and Yashica were good options… so I found a Yashica FRII on Craigslist and snatched it up. I’ve had it for months, but haven’t had a chance to play with it. I finally took it with me the other day when we took a walk, and I LOVE it. I’m still figuring out all the settings – I had a few things wrong on this roll, but I know that with each roll, I’ll only get better. (And I completely ruined the first roll by somehow tearing it in two midway through… thankfully, it’s been so long since I took those photos that I don’t remember what they were.)

We ran into a lot of kitty cats on our walk.

I can’t wait to take more photos.

    I love film! I also really like developing it – I did that for the first time the other day in photography class, and it was a LOT of fun. My negatives actually came out 😀 I have a Nikon film camera that used to be my dad’s. So much funnnn!

      That does sound fun! Justin took a photography class or two in college, and I would go hang out with him in the darkroom while he developed stuff. I remember the smell. 🙂

    omg…kitty kats are my favorite part of walks! early morning walks are the best cause they all come out and sit in their front yards to greet the day.
