Black and White

A while ago a very good friend of mine gave me a Minolta X-700 film camera.  It was his father's who had passed away so it meant a lot to me to finally take it out.  It was quite a different experience than with digital, but it taught me more about getting it right in camera and not relying on post!

My friend Charlie gave me a few tips and off we went to Balboa Park, with most of the images being snapped in the Botanical building.

This was from my very first roll.  It was so strange not to be able to see what I shot until the film was developed but the wait was worth it.   Gordon Allen was with me in spirit!
