Summer Fun on Cape Cod 2019

Here’s a selection of photos from my summer vacation back in August.

These were taken in Cape Cod, Massachusetts in Hyannis and on Mayflower Beach.

I used my Pentax KM along with some FujiFilm C200 and a “new” el-cheapo Vivitar 50:1.8 lens.

As a bonus, you also get “lamp in sky” which is my very first accidental double exposure using film. I had to fix my shutter and this happy accident (as Bob Ross would say) occurred. I think it looks pretty cool, and it’s the kind of thing that can only happy organically on film. I’m also keen on the odd chemical aberration that happened from the pic riding across the Bourne bridge.

Also of note: when your subject is seagulls, Wheat Thins are an effective form of payment to encourage them on the shoot.

Vintage 35mm Film Cameras

I wanted to change things up a little for my first post of 2019.

I recently acquired two different 35mm cameras and wanted to talk about them here, since I plan to periodically post film photography stuff on the blog mixed in with the regular writing and book-related content.

The first is a Pentax KM (~1975) and the other is a Canon FTb (~1971).

Here’s a photo of them taken with a modern digital camera, ironically.
