If you’ve ever been to our house, you know that Gary and I have a pretty large collection of vintage film cameras which merged a la The Brady Bunch when we moved in together. They stare at me every day as I walk by, begging to be picked up, loved, used. So last month I finally gave in and shot a couple of rolls of film with an old Rollei. It was just too much fun. All of you Hassi and ex-Hassi users understand and probably long for the square format and I must say that shooting at waist(ish) height just makes the world look new again. I plan to start shooting with it more often. I didn’t use a light meter, just eyeballed the exposure and gave my best guess and was pretty close most of the time. A good photographer exercise I think. Anyway, here is an image I shot of a tree in the front yard of the house we just moved out of. Funny to be all nostalgic just weeks later but I sort of am. Maybe that’s just what film does to me. :)
