August Long Weekend in the East End Part One

 The August Long Weekend was a nice one for photography, had a great frugal film roll, I also packed my chrome Nikkormat EL and shot some recently expired and refridgerator stored Kodak Ektar 100. I'm really pleased with the results.  The Nikkormat EL was a precurser of what's to come in the world of Nikon, it begat the FE, FE2, FM3A by exension the FA, a well engineered prosumer camera with aperture priority. The only real downside is the 6SR44 battery that's housed under the mirror box, and you have to go through the mirror box to replace the lens. Otherwise, a really solid camera that's fun to shoot with.  Camera: Nikkormat EL, Nikkor Pre Ai lenses.  Film: Kodak Ektar 100. 

Tenth Anniversary Toronto Film Shooters Photo Walk, The 416 Edition, Part Two

 Again a nice photo walk in North Toronto this time around with a lot more green, and flowers. The camera of choice, my chrome Nikon FE2 just plain rocked. My FM3a is back at another repair tech to get the lazy meter hopefully fixed once and for all (fingers crossed). I'm a big fan of the FE/FE2 and FM3a series of cameras and find them a joy to shoot with.  Camera: Nikon FE2, Nikkor Ais lenses.  Film: Cinestill 400D.
