My daughter Claire set up a store at a local playground, selling pieces of rubbish in exchange for the wood chips all over the ground. She did a brisk business, but I had to shut her down briefly to prevent her from selling a very sharp steak knife someone had stuck into the ground.
This photo was taken on a 1948 Kodak Tourist folding camera. I picked it up for $25 at a local “antique” store, cleaned fungus from the viewfinder and filed down a couple of 120 rolls to fit the 620 spools. Worked smoothly, and the images are clean and fairly sharp.
I bought a 1948 Kodak Tourist earlier this week. I cleaned it and fixed the back. I filed down a spool of 120 and loaded it last night, and today I shot with it. I am impressed with the results. I opened up the viewfinder this evening and cleaned some fungus out of it, It’s all good to go, now.
Hamilton has many vibrant green parks. Then there’s Windemere Basin, an artificial pond built in the shadow of refineries and steel plants. It’s a great place for water fowl, and a nice bit of nature in the midst of industry. However, it still looks a little dire, and a hard winter hasn’t helped it.
On a frigid night (-20 C) I went tromping around downtown Hamilton with my Minolta 5000, loaded with Ilford 3200. I am pleased with the results, though not pleased the block of Victorian buildings near Gore Park is being demolished.
